The initial survey showed that the replacement cost was too high, the order time was over 5 months, so the team in charge proposed a redesign to suit the genuine parts, available on the market. Since starting to research and manufacture again, the research team has used less than 65 million VND along with 5 weeks of intense work to bring the LHM 250 crane back into operation, helping businesses save more than 4.1 billion VND.
