L&T unveils 3 new machines for Road Construction at Excon 2017

As part of the ambitious Make in India campaign, Larsen & Toubro Limited launched its indigenously designed Hydraulic Paver L&T 5590H, a Skid Steer Loader, and a Pneumatic Tyred Roller in the road construction segment. All of them have been developed in-house at the company’s Product Development Centre in Coimbatore, and manufactured by L&T Construction Equipment Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of L&T. Senior members of the management led by Mr. Arvind K. Garg, Executive Vice-President & Head, Construction & Mining Machinery, L&T, were present at the launch.

The Hydraulic Paver L&T 5590H, used for paving predominantly bitumen on road surfaces, can pave upto 5.5 m. It is completely hydraulic-hopper, conveyer and the auger are all hydraulically driven, and travel is by hydraulic motors. The machine is powered by a 4-cylinder Ashok Leyland water-cooled diesel engine with an inline fuel pump. All the machine controls can be operated from the operator console itself. There is a slide-able and rotatable operator console which gives the operator the required edge visibility. The screed heating option is through LPG cylinders. The screed can be hydraulically extended from 2.5 m onwards to 4.5 m, beyond which, 0.5 m mechanical extensions on other side can extend it to 5.5 m. The machine is also capable of handling materials like dry lean concrete, wet mix macadam and dense bituminous macadam, and can lay thickness from 10 mm to 200 mm.

L&T’s versatile Skid Steer Loader S315R can be fitted with a wide variety of attachments. The 3.5 ton machine has a payload of 1.5 tons, has a distinct feature of turning on the spot, which makes it ideal where space is a constraint. Very operator friendly, it is fitted with ROPS / FOPS cabin, a hydraulic joystick control, a glass top cut-out on the roof for enhanced visibility, and a safety system that ensures that the machine starts only after the operator is in the seat and the safety bar is engaged. It is offered with a standard loader bucket of 0.5 cum capacity and has a quick coupler mechanism to quickly change the attachment. The filters are accessible from the ground level on opening the rear door. The Loader can load the popular hauling 100-ton dump trucks, LCVs and tractor trolleys.

The Pneumatic Tyred Roller L&T 2490HD is used for the sealing of topmost bituminous layer so that no water seepage takes place into the road. The machine has a unladen weight of 12.5 tons which can be ballasted to get the maximum weight of 24 tons. The ballast can be achieved by using concrete debris or steel scrap. Built with a 4-front and 4-rear combination, its front wheels are directly driven by hydraulic motors, and its steering system is optimized so that there is no scuffing on the surface.
