PT Sarana Karya Cipta Transindo chose an SDLG LG936L wheeled loader to handle aggregates at Holcim's concrete plant
An SDLG LG936L wheeled loader is proving vital to operations at a Holcim concrete plant in Bandung, Indonesia. Contractor PT Sarana Karya Cipta Transindo is using the fuel-efficient LG936L to produce high-quality concrete products for Holcim, one of the world’s leading suppliers of cement and aggregates.
“The LG936L has really improved efficiency and operations at the plant,” said Rieko Stevanus, owner of the company. “Its smooth and reliable performance allows us to move up to 65m³ per hour.”
On site since April 2018, the LG936L works between 15 to 20 hours daily, primarily transporting materials such as limestone, crushed stones and sand from the stockpiles to the concrete plant’s hopper, to help produce 3,000m³ of concrete/month for Holcim.
“The SDLG wheeled loader is a reliable workhorse and needs only one minute and 20 seconds to pick up the materials from the stockpile and unload at the hopper 30 metres away,” Stevanus said.
With an air-conditioned steel cab with wide visibility and a large operating space, the operator is protected against the elements and enjoys optimum comfort. With the option to install rollover protective structures and falling object protective structures, contractors have flexibility to adapt the lightweight wheeled loader to meet changing job site needs.
Powered by a 92kW Weichai Deutz engine, the 3 tonne-rated LG936L is highly manoeuvrable. The 1.8m³ bucket on the unit can be raised to a dumping height of 3.3m, and the maximum breakout force is 96N.
PT Sarana Karya Cipta Transindo owns a fleet of seven SDLG LG936Ls, which were all purchased from PT Indotruck Utama, SDLG’s distribution partner in Indonesia.
