SDLG has launched its lat­est Tier 4 Fi­nal/Stage IV wheel loader – the L959F – at an event in China.

SDLG says the ma­chine un­veiled at the re­cent 2017 Bei­jing In­ter­na­tional Con­struc­tion Ma­chin­ery Ex­hi­bi­tion re­flects its com­mit­ment to en­vi­ron­men­tal sus­tain­abil­ity.

“Sus­tain­abil­ity has be­come one of the main fo­cuses in the con­struc­tion ma­chin­ery in­dus­try over the past decade,” SDLG board chair­man Wang Zhizhong says.

“SDLG is be­ing proac­tive in our ef­forts to help cus­tomers tran­si­tion smoothly to more ecofriendly equip­ment.

“The L959F meets the strict emis­sions stan­dards in Europe, for ex­am­ple, and it will also raise the bar for other re­gions. SDLG is com­mit­ted to be­ing a leader in the pro­duc­tion of en­vi­ron­men­tally sen­si­tive con­struc­tion equip­ment,” Wang adds.

As men­tioned, the L959F has a Tier 4 Fi­nal

162kW Deutz engine. The L959F’s hy­draulics are man­aged by sin­gle-lever pi­lot con­trols and de­liver a max­i­mum break­out force of 50kN. The big loader weighs in at just over 17.5 tonnes and has a rated load ca­pac­ity of 5 tonnes.

Power is con­trolled via a ZF fixed-shaft elec­tro­hy­draulic trans­mis­sion and the L959F also has full hy­draulic braking.

SDLG says the op­er­a­tors’ cab on the L959F is 15 per cent larger than on pre­vi­ous mod­els, with an ad­justable sus­pen­sion seat and all-round vis­i­bil­ity. The loader also has a ‘smart park­ing’ sys­tem that au­to­mat­i­cally ac­ti­vates the ma­chine’s braking sys­tem when the engine stalls for safer op­er­a­tion.

Noise lev­els are also kept to a min­i­mum thanks to SDLG’s three-stage ab­sorp­tion sys­tem that in­volves the cab, trans­mis­sion and engine work­ing to­gether to con­tain vi­bra­tions.
