Arun Pandey, managing director of Sunshine International; is the proud owner of the first G9220 motor grader sold in Oman
Shandong Lingong Construction Machinery (known as Lingong) recently celebrated two important milestones - its 100th SDLG motor grader sale in Europe, Middle East, Africa (EMEA) region, and its first motor grader sale in the Sultanate of Oman.
The G9220 motor grader was delivered to Sunshine International, a leading construction company based in Oman. The machine was supplied by General Engineering Services, Genserv, SDLG’s well-known local dealer, and has already been set to work carrying out road maintenance and repairs in Oman.
“SDLG graders are well-designed machines that offer strong long-term performance,” explains Arun Pandey, managing director of Sunshine International. “Coupled with its competitive price, the G9220 is an excellent addition to our company’s fleet.”
With an operating weight of 16.5tonnes, the G9220 is a high-quality, multi-purpose machine that has many features. Offering a powerful 164 kW Dalian Deutz engine, combined with a ZF power shift transmission, the G9220 is said to deliver reliable operation. The engine also provides three distinct power curve settings to give the smoothest grade on any terrain while simultaneously reducing fuel consumption. And, offering greater versatility, the unit’s Machine Blade Control System (MBCS) is said to allow for ultimate grading precision. This system is controlled by hydraulic mechanical levers in the cab, meaning the operator can swing the blade himself if required.
“This sale is a significant milestone for SDLG and represents exciting growth in Oman and the surrounding regions,” says Jan-Erik Eriksson, SDLG business manager for Middle East. “SDLG’s future growth in this region will depend on our continued development in the value segment, as well as maintained production of reliable, robust machines.”
Sunshine International, is one of the leading construction companies for the commercial and industrial sectors in the Middle East. It’s the sister company of Al Yam Enterprises and with extensive experience in the construction field, Sunshine International is said to be an ideal partner for the SDLG brand.
“The G9220 is well-balanced and has good traction, which gives operators a lot of confidence when using the machine,” says Pandey. “Overall, Sunshine International is very pleased with this latest investment.”
