SDLG launches L958F Wheel Loader, displays G9138 Motor Grader and L946 Wheel Loader

With high demand for wheel loaders in India, SDLG introduced the L958F in the Indian market. The L958F features a larger bucket capacity, heavier operating weight and a new cooling design system — all while retaining the signature reliability that the company's machines are known for.

"With the Indian government continuing to invest in infrastructure, the new L958F wheel loader will be a great fit for heavy-load applications such as material handling, land clearing and general earthmoving," said Surat Mehta, head of the SDLG business in India.

The 5 t-rated wheel loader has a bucket capacity of 3.2 m3 and a maximum dumping distance of 1.12 m. The Deutz Tier III engine has a rated power of 162 kW at 2,000 rpm. The L958F also features a cooling system designed with an area-enlarged radiator, and optimized inlet and outlet air channels that provide high cooling efficiency — a feature that will be highly useful in the Indian heat.

The new wheel loader is already available in other Asia-Pacific markets. Its power, fast cycle times and overall performance has already proven a hit with some operators. "Wadi stone is a particularly harsh material, and one that places extreme demands on equipment," said Devanand Bugde, plant engineer at Naeem Dhofar Trading Company, Oman, which started using the L958F in June. "Throw in summertime in the Middle East, where temperatures can go up to 40°C, and crusher dust into the mix, and the result is a demanding operating environment! But, so far, the L958F has handled this tough environment very well."

SDLG L958F wheel loader

Alongside the new L958F, SDLG also displayed the G9138 motor grader and the L946 wheel loader. The G9138 motor grader is ideal for construction of smaller municipal and rural roads. It is powered by a Deutz BF4M1013-15T3R/2 engine that has an output of 111 kW at 2100 rpm and can reach maximum 39 km/h forward and 24 km/h backward velocities. The L946 loader features a 3.5 m3 maximum bucket capacity, a maximum 1m dumping distance and a 129 kW rated power.

Since 2015, the construction industry in India has continued to grow, and Mehta is optimistic that the trend will continue. SDLG is well positioned to ride on this growth with its network of dealers. "For wheel loaders, SDLG has a strong market position in the 3-5 ton range, and we plan to further strengthen our position," he said. "For motor graders, there is potential to grow our customer base as well, with road construction activity levels remaining high. Our extensive network of 16 dealers provides customers with responsive and effective aftersales service support."
