SDLG launches new loader/excavator in Russia
First publishedin Aggregates Business International
SDLG’s new LG953N wheeled loader is now available in the Russian market following its launch in Moscow.
The company says the loader delivers “serious savings” compared with its predecessor, but without compromising on power output. It has a 162kW engine. The second generation wheeled loader includes all the features from its predecessor,
but updates include a low-speed powertrain to offer lower fuel consumption and better overall energy efficiency.
Oil consumption in the 5tonne wheeled loader is reduced in several ways, says SDLG. An optimised cooling system lowers the temperature of engine coolant, hydraulic oil and transmission oil, reducing overall oil consumption while
improving the machine’s cooling efficiency. Also, the hydraulic load-sensing steering system and steering pump aid automatic flow control, further decreasing the amount of oil consumed.
Upgrades include improved leak-proof hydraulic pipeline; reinforced drive axle, and the design has been updated with a widened rear engine hood for “a more striking appearance.”
