As noted in the German forum, this is a fake picture.
one can see the Bauma buildings in the background.

(in Asian accent)Ah,nice try,but you will have to try harder to wind up us Demag fans Homer-san.Teeth Teeth

Why is "phonetically" spelt with a "ph"?

... It's better to be silent and thought a fool, then to speak up and remove all doubt

The complex of Newgrange was originally built between c. 3100 and 2900 BC,[2] meaning that it's aproximately 5,000 years old. According to Carbon-14 dates,[3] it is more than 500 years older than the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt, and predates Stonehenge by about 1,000 years.

I know that Kerst. It was posted as a joke.. thats why I called it 'Zoomlion's ac1000'. Its obvious that its an actual demag with zoomlion cab and decals photoshopped on, sure the Demag back cab can clearly be seen in the picture!

Hi Noel,

But you still might be right. Zoomlion might well beat Demag with introducing a similar model.

I fail to see the 'joke'. You do realize that photo originated from a Zoomlion website correct? Look down to the bottom of the page......

Well, that's not an official Zoomlion website. That is just a privately run machinery trader site and it could be run by some "average Joe" (or being it's Russian, an "average Jasha"), they could have seen it in the forums just like we all did and then just put it on their site. Do you really, actually, seriously think Zoomlion would doctor that photo and then put it on their official website? Ahhhh no. Granted their not the longest chopstick in the resturaunt, but their not that short minded.

Plus isn't there a post on Hansebube that tells the story of where the doctored photo came from? I swear I remember that it was just some random guy that had some time on his hands. Relax...all is good in the world of corporate copyright infringement and industrial espionage.
