Mahin­dra up­grades Earth master se­ries

Auto components India - - SPECIAL REPORT -

M&M took Excon 2017 to ex­pand its range of back­hoe load­ers in the coun­try and launched SX90 un­der its Earth­mas­ter se­ries. De­signed and de­vel­oped based on the cus­tomer feed­back at the Chakan fa­cil­ity, Earth­mas­ter SX90 is a one-piece struc­ture pow­ered by 4915IA CEV en­gine. The four-cylin­der pow­er­house has been de­vel­oped in-house by Mahin­dra and churns out 90hp power. The four-speed (four forward and re­verse) and four-wheel drive Earth­mas­ter SX90 gets an er­gonom­i­cally de­signed cabin built with tubu­lar sec­tions and CED tech­nol­ogy for longer pro­tec­tion from rust.

With max­i­mum dig­ging depth of 5.09m, Earth­mas­ter SX90 has a bucket tear-out force of 5797kg and front hy­dro­static power steer­ing with pres­sure re­lief set­ting of 145bar. RC Man­gal, Se­nior Vice-Pres­i­dent, Sales and Mar­ket­ing, Mahin­dra & Mahin­dra, said “A large num­ber of projects like metro con­struc­tion and air­ports, along with cou­ple of ir­ri­ga­tion projects in Andhra Pradesh, Kar­nataka, which were al­most stuck or mov­ing slow, have started mov­ing very well. This is well sup­ported by con­nec­tiv­ity build up in terms of bor­der roads and North-East­ern States.”

Along with Earth­mas­ter SX90, a stan­dard vari­ant VX with joy­stick op­er­a­tion, front-end loader SXL with ex­tended arm, and a con­cept DrillX, for pil­ing ap­pli­ca­tion were also show­cased.
