SDLG has won a race against the clock to build and deliver almost 100 custom-built wheeled loaders to GBU Zhilishnik for use on Russian infrastructure projects.
GBU Zhilishnik is said to have selected SDLG as its partner brand for the project because of the equipment’s technology, improved configuration and ease of control. The LG944MSK wheeled loaders were specially built for the contract, with customisation including widening the chassis to increase stability when operating on uneven terrain and boosting the engine power rating to suit loading heavy building materials.
SDLG is the brand of Shandong Lingong Machinery (known as Lingong), which manufactures SDLG-branded machines from its factories in Linyi, China, and Pederneiras, Brazil.

“The bidding criteria were extremely tough. Not only did we have to re-design the machine but also the lead time was extremely short,” says,” Yu Mengsheng, president of Lingong.
“Thanks to our lean manufacturing techniques, we were able to adapt the design, build and deliver the 96 machines in less than four months. We are now more confident about our ability to serve customers in Russia by offering a broad range of cost-effective product options, along with our existing well-established aftermarket service and spare parts support.”
