Planning to Buy Trucks, Purchase it From Rajasthan to Save Money

2048_13C580_01It is strange going to another state to buy a product despite it is available in home state, but it is happening in our own country where people from other states are going to Rajasthan to buy heavy-duty trucks. But people could only travel far to buy anything when they save money purchasing the same product from other than home state.

In last few months, Rajasthan has attracted buyers from many North Indian states, including Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Punjab and other. Buyers from these states are visiting Rajasthan to buy the trucks from here as Rajasthan government’s reduced the Value added tax (VAT) by 2% over the purchase of heavy-duty trucks, which help the buyers to save good amount of money from overall sales tax, which made Rajasthan a leading seller of trucks in recent time.

The impact of selling a number of trucks has seen in the state government’s earning in first quarter (April-June) of FY 2016-17. During the period, out of Rs 700 crore of revenues from the transport sector, a huge chunk of revenue has come from the sales of trucks, claimed an official from the state government, reported TNN.

VAT on various neighbouring states is higher than Rajasthan, which is helping transporters and other buyers from different sectors who require trucks to purchase it from Rajasthan.

As per the various media reports, State government has asked various heavy vehicle manufacturers and dealers to publicise the taxes in Rajasthan, which could attract buyers from other than north India in coming months.

If you are planning to buy new heavy-duty truck, you can approach to dealers of leading truck manufacturers like Tata Motors, Ashok Leyland, Eicher, Swaraj Mazda, Volvo, Mahindra & Mahindra and other in Rajasthan, purchasing the trucks from Rajasthan based dealers will reduce your overall cost of purchasing the truck.

If you needed used trucks, various online portals which are in the business of buying and selling of second-hand trucks and construction equipment will help you to buy trucks from Rajasthan. Among them, one of the fastest emerging and reliable portal is www.equipmentonestop.com, it will help you to bring second-hand trucks in your budget from Rajasthan and help you to bring it at your doorstep which would further save you money due to reduction in VAT.

As Indian construction equipment market has started reviving after a gap of four years (2012-2014), the sales of trucks also started reviving after a gap of four years as economy back on track and cargo movement increased in the country and rise in infrastructure, construction industry also made a positive impact on rising sales of trucks in the country.

The sale of heavy-duty trucks rose last year and expected to exceed its previous high of 2011 in coming years due to rising number of trucks in current scenario. It seems, the reduction of VAT on buying trucks in Rajasthan will attract truck buyers from various other states in coming months.

The sale of Tipper trucks and Dump trucks are expected to rise further in the second half of this financial year as Coal India Ltd (CIL) is holding forward e-auction of coal blocks for power producers to meet the rising demand of the electricity in the country. CIL is the major producer of coal in India.

The heavy Tipper trucks and Dump trucks mainly in demand for coal mining and infrastructure projects, therefore all the major players of the country are expecting huge demand of such heavy vehicles mainly from these two sectors. Once the mining of other minerals begins, tipper sales may rise further in the future.

It is reported, Special forward e-auction of coal blocks for 2016-17 for phase III is being held this month. CIL has already prepared a roadmap to achieve the target of producing one billion tonne coal by 2020 and for this financial year, the target is set to produce 598.61 million tonnes of coal, last fiscal (2015-16), it had produced 538.75 million tonnes of coal.

The rising demand of the coal in the country, does not only show the requirement of the electricity, but it also indicates huge requirement of such heavy commercial trucks, which needed for loading and carrying the coal in massive number.

Various trucks manufacturers are coming up with new models and also working-on to expand its existing capacity of production to tap the coal sector. These truck makers are coming up with high-powered Tippers and Dump trucks that can get into deep coal mines to carry the coal.

Under the provisions of the Coal Mines (Special Provisions) Act, 2015, 75 coal mines (31 by way of auction and 44 by way of allotment) have been allocated so far. Mining operations have commenced and mine opening permission granted in 11 auctioned coal mines as on 20.07.2016, the government informed Parliament in recently concluded session.

Why Fuel-Efficient Construction Equipment Useful for Your Business

Why Fuel-Efficient Construction Equipment Useful for Your BusinessPeople associated with the construction industry are aware that this industry requires huge sums of money for smooth running the business. From small developers to big infrastructure companies often look for the way to reduce the cost of the business and make more profit.

Heavy construction equipment adds a huge amount of cost and even after purchasing these machines, developers’ need a lot of money for making it run. After buying construction machines, two major costs involve with it, one is fuel cost and another is maintenance cost.

To save the huge cost of fuelling, the end-user customers started realising the need of advanced technology to save fuel cost, which made the way for construction equipment manufactures to think beyond the traditional ways of making the machines.

There are two reasons for looking for fuel efficient machines, one is to save fuel cost another is environment, these two leads to the widely discussed subject across the world.

Therefore, all the fuel efficient machines help the owner to save money which goes into fuel expenses. Before 2015, when oil price was touching the sky, at that time running the CE would have cost more than now, so it is always better having the fuel-efficient machines in longer run.

Due to need and more demand from end-users of fuel-efficient equipment, construction equipment manufactures started realising its demand and started working on technology which consumes less fuel, give higher productivity and profitability.

So, many companies have come with different innovative solutions to meet the customers’ expectations.

Country’s leading CE Company, JCB has developed fuel efficient ecoMAX engine, which results in saving substantial amount of fuel. It’s also designed to adopt Indian conditions and emission norms of Indian government. Now JCB uses highly efficient JCB ecoMax T4i engine that is being used in most of the JCB machines.

JS120 excavator of JCB is claimed to be one of the most fuel-efficient product, it is powered by a 4 cylinder JCB ecoMax engine.

Volvo EC160E is the newest E-series crawler excavator; it featured with Tier 4 final D4 engine which is very fuel-efficient compared to its earlier model. It’s two other EC380D and EC480D excavators are also fuel-efficient. CAT claims its 320D/D L series 2 hydraulic excavators is 15% more fuel efficient.

Sweden based Construction equipment company Huddig has developed a technology called ‘Tigon Technology’, the technology gives Huddig’s Backhoe Loader higher efficiency, improved performance and lower fuel consumption.

Hybrid hydraulic excavator series of Hitachi ZH200-5B gives superb fuel efficiency with better working performance as compared to its standard model ZX200-5B.

Various leading CE companies are making fuel-efficient products to save the cost of running a construction business.

The above examples show, how CE companies started meeting the consumer demand and regularly coming up with new technologies.

Construction And Mining Sector to Drive The AMW Tipper

Tipper is one of the crucial heavy vehicles which drive the construction and mining industry. Tipper is a dump truck used to haul sand, gravel, rock, and asphalt, mostly used for these two sectors, including dumping garbage.

The sale of tippers directly proportional to infrastructure and mEquipment-One-Stop-AMW-Tipperining sectors, the more infra and mining activities takes places the demand of tipper will go up automatically.

The sale of tippers has reduced in the last few years as both infrastructure and mining activities contracted in the country due to economic slowdown and other various reasons. But after the government ambitious aim to revive country’s infrastructure sector and roll back to the mining activities, bring the good news for M&HCV players who are manufacturing tipper trucks.

Mining sector rolled back after contraction of many years, recently government allocated 47 mines bearing mineral like iron ore, gold, limestone and bauxite for auction. As per the official data, in first 11 months of FY2015-16, mining industry witnessed the growth of 8.2 percent; the growth has been seen after the contraction of four consecutive years.

To meet the target of doubling the coal production to 1.5 billion tonnes by 2020, the government has decided to open the coal sector for commercial mining to private sectors after 40 years.

On infrastructure front, Recently Road Transport & Highways Minister Mr. Nitin Gadkari said, government aims to invest Rs 25 lakh crore in roads, railway and shipping infrastructure in next three years and announcement of record budgetary allocation of Rs 2.21 lakh crore for infra sector by Finance Minister Mr. Arun Jaitley during his budget speech, indicates huge construction activities is going to take places across the country, which require huge amount of various types of construction equipment along with Tipper.

Therefore Tipper market has been recovering as government has accelerated the speed of road and highways construction activities in last two years.

As mining activities have started rolling back, road and highways co
nstruction have taken pace and there is an inflow of huge investment in infra sector; this would lift tipper demand in the country, in which AMW Tipper is expected to get a better share along with other major players.

AMW manufacture varieties of tippers for a specialised purpose for both

Construction and mining sector, such as; Model -2518TP (Makes quarrying and construction work easier to handle), 1618TP (Ideal Tipper Hilly terrain), 2523TP Box Body suited for all off-road load challenges), 2523TP Rock Body (suited for all mining applications), 3118 TP (perfect tipper for all hauling operations) and others, claims the company.

AMW tippers are suited for the rough and tumble of mining & quarrying operations, as well as for carrying bulk loads in construction and infrastructure industries. The trucks are fitted with Euro III engines that deliver 180/235-280 HP and 1100 maximum torque.
