SDLG: "New launches and the latest technologies will be featured at SDLG booth, where the company will also highlight its industry-leading productivity," says Sanu George, Business Head, SDLG India.

This year at bC India 2016, SDLG India will highlight its unique position in the country's Construction Equipment sector with its innovative products on display, which will showcase the company's superior productivity. Three machines from two product lines will be on display, while information on a dozen more machines will be available. A range of activities have been planned for the visitors.

Two new machines will be formally launched at bC India, both of which are built at the SDLG manufacturing facility in China. The new L933 wheel loader and G9138 grader have a number of new features to make them even more attractive to the Indian customers. The introduction of the units is timely, with pressure growing on contractors to ensure projects stay on schedule as the Government targets 30 km of new road construction per day.

SDLG machines are known for their reliable operation, robust performance, and fast return on investment. The G9138 offers all of this and more. The highly maneuverable machine also gives the operator precise control through a fully digital instrument panel that includes electronic monitoring. The integrated panel also offers straightforward inspection and maintenance.

Adding to the motor grader's operability is its swing frame, which delivers greater flexibility in a variety of work scenarios. The articulating swing frame's movements allow the blade to generate more power and carry a heavy windrow. It also allows the unit to make turns at more acute angles for close-quarter work or smaller roads. For greater durability and easier operations, the swing frame's composite bearing is lifetime lubricated and maintenance-free.

At bC India, SDLG will also introduce a third model for the market, the new L933, showing it alongside an LG958L. In India, SDLG currently offers two wheel loaders: the 3-ton rated LG936L and the 5-ton rated LG958L, both of which are popular in applications such as general construction, ports, and mining. George said, "We're seeing rising demand for wheel loaders in India, particularly in the 3-ton class. The new L933 for India is ideal for handling ready mix concrete, or applications such as road building or quarrying. It is a simpler and more cost-effective wheel loader than the other options we offer in India, but it maintains the reliable performance and robust design that has built our reputation. We're expecting a lot of interest in this new machine at bC India 2016."

On-stand activities
"India is a major area of focus for SDLG and we are continually growing our presence in the country," asserted George. "Reliability and uptime are more important than ever, given the work pressure on job sites. We've worked hard with our extensive network of dealers to ensure we have the parts and the processes in place to provide necessary and timely support to our customers."

George added, "The success of LG958L has helped raise the profile of the SDLG brand in India. It will be great to see it alongside the new L933 at bC India, underlining our strength in the Indian wheel loader market."

To facilitate a one-stop solution for customers, SDLG and SDLG Financial Services will be launching competitive financing schemes and on-the-spot credit approvals at bC India.
