40 kilometers northwest of the city Kuwait on the Arabian Peninsula, on a stretch of no-mans land that used to be covered in sand and blown by winds, a new modern city is on the rise.
Smack in the middle of the dessert, the city being built is one of the key livelihood projects that is part of China’s global infrastructure development strategy “One belt and One road”.
SANY is never far when great projects call for reliable companies. 20 units of SANY truck-tractors and other machines are currently involved in the construction project.
The heavy trucks are mainly used for material transportation on a route where part of it goes through road-less dessert. This severe road condition brings about challenges including extreme heat (60℃) and sandstorms. Almost one year into the project, with a total safe travelling record of over 1,000,000 kilometers, these SANY machines have a great reputation among the drivers whose compliments are mainly centered around the “robust chassis, powerful engine, smooth shifting and effective braking”. They are also impressed by the comfort designed into the cab which features air-bag shock-absorbing seats and a quick-cooling air conditioning system.
Equipped with a Weichai 500 horse-power engine, a FAST Sixteen-speed gear box and a 16t Hande axle, the truck deserves its title: heavy truck-tractor. In the near future, other soon-to-be-realized adaptations on customer’s demands include spare tire quick-installation mechanism, independent air inlet and independent & movable trailer plate which ensures the optimum climate adaptability of the machines.
For this batch of trucks in Kuwait, SANY’s maintenance policy covers a two-year warranty plus three-year renewal on the engines, during which period spare parts are included. Both SANY’s product quality and maintenance capability are key aspects to ensure the customer is happy.
