SDLG has introduced the new stage III L975F wheel loader to market, the Original Equipment Manufacturer’s biggest wheel loader to date.
SDLG has developed the L975F with a focus on durability, fuel efficiency and improving productivity on a job site. According to SDLG product manager, Henrik Sjöstrand, the wheel loader can be used for a range of tough applications on construction sites, as well in quarries, mines and port terminals.
“The 24 900kg machine is designed with robust rear and front frames to withstand load distribution. With a large tonnage driving axle and reliable braking, there’s no task the L957F can’t tackle,” says Sjöstrand. The loader is fitted with a 199kW engine, its transmission uses a HTE205C fixed-axis electro-hydraulic automatic shifting gearbox for flexibility and ease of operation. Sjöstrand explains that SDLG is the first machine that uses a fully automatic transmission built by Volvo. “An integrated cooling system uses intelligent technology to automatically adjust fan speed according to engine temperature, which is particularly advantageous in hot climates,” he adds.
The SDLG L975F has a greater load capacity and durability than previous machines and features a standard 4.2m³ bucket with 8 bolted on teeth and two wear plates with a spill guard plate to prevent material loss. The maximum dump height, at 3.2m, is supported by a 3.6m boom. The second stage 93 sand filter in the hood of the machine filters over 95% of particles when working in dusty conditions such as mines to keep the job smooth and efficient.
