SDLG will exhibit a range of construction equipment at its outdoor booth No. 24 at Excon 2017. SDLG’s 570 m2 booth will feature several of the company’s best-selling products, including the G9138 and G9190 motor graders, which like all SDLG's other equipment, are designed to provide reliable performance, easy maintenance and high return-on-investment.
“In India, we’re seeing rapid demand for construction equipment, especially in the road building industry. For contractors to meet ever-tighter deadlines, reliability at job sites has become more important than ever. India has been a success story for SDLG over the past decade and we now have an established and growing base of customers who understand how we can solve their challenges with our proven equipment and rapid support, provided through our extensive dealer network,” says Sanu George, Business Head for SDLG India.
Reliable solutions for road construction
A highlight at SDLG’s booth will be the G9138 motor grader, the newest addition to the company’s range. It has a working weight of 12,000 kg and is powered by a Dalian Deutz WP6G140E22 engine which delivers 111 kW of power at 2,100 rpm. Upto 75.4 kN of traction force can be achieved, while maximum forward and backward speeds are 39 km/h and 24.5 km/h respectively.
“SDLG’s machines are known for their reliability and flexibility, and the G9138 offers all of this and more. As a highly maneuverable machine, the G9138 allows precise control via a fully digital instrument board, and is able to make turns at more acute angles for close-quarter work or when working on smaller road projects,” says Sanu.
The G9190 is the bigger brother to the G9138, and another popular choice for road building projects. With an overall working weight of 15,800 kg, the machine is equipped with a Dalian Deutz engine which delivers a traction force of up to 82 kN. The G9190 features a 3.962 m blade that can cut depths of up to 635 mm. The blade can also be inclined up to 47° forward and 5° backward.
SDLG is also expected to showcase the L933 and the L936 wheel loaders. They are two of the three wheel loaders that SDLG has made available in India, and both are 3 t-rated. The L933 is the newer machine, having debuted at bC India last year.
According to Sanu, the L933 is ideal for handling ready-mix concrete or in applications such as road building and quarrying. It is a simpler and more cost-effective wheel loader than other options that the company offers in India, but retains the reliability and robustness upon which SDLG has built its reputation.
