By Andy Brown23 December 2020
SDLG has launched the LG953 wheeled loader in Indonesia for use in the country’s construction sites, factories, ports, and mines.
“With the growth in construction, mining and manufacturing sectors expected to restart alongside investments in infrastructure, this is a good opportunity for us to release a new model of our trusted loaders,” said Gerrit Lambert, SDLG commercial director in Indonesia.
The LG953 is powered by a 162kW engine, has a bucket capacity of 2.8m3, a maximum breakout force of 175kN and a tipping load of 110kN. The wheel loader features a Wei Chai Tier 2 Engine and SDLG F2/R1 planetary power shift transmission.
The new loader features an SDLG special reinforced drive axle that is said to increase the reliability of transmission and deceleration by 60%. The loader also has an enhanced movable arm and plate that increases the payload that can be delivered with each movement.
With its medium-long wheelbase, the loader is thus able to deal with all kinds of loads including high-density material such as coal ore, aggregate, wet sand, and minerals.
The wheeled loader features an ergonomically redesigned cab design and control box equipped with a wide vision and low noise cab and adjustable armrests.
“SDLG wheel loaders have always been popular in the Indonesian market. The launch of the LG953 in Indonesia demonstrates our continued commitment to providing effective and reliable solutions to the market,” Lambert said.
