SDLG's biggest wheel loader ever
SDLG's 7-tonne L975F wheel loader is the biggest model the company offers.
The new Stage III L975F wheel loader was developed with with a focus on durability, fuel efficiency and improving productivity on the jobsite. It is intended for tough applications on construction sites and in quarries, mines and port terminals.
The 24,900kg L975F is designed with robust rear and front frames to withstand load distribution. It is equipped with a large tonnage driving axle and reliable braking. Fitted with a 199-kW engine, its transmission uses a HTE205C fixed-axis electro-hydraulic automatic shifting gearbox for flexibility and ease of operation. This is SDLG's first machine that uses a fully automatic transmission built by Volvo. An integrated cooling system uses intelligent technology to automatically adjust fan speed according to engine temperature, which is particularly advantageous in hot climates.
With greater load capacity and durability, the SDLG L975F wheel loader can tackle the toughest of applications. The standard 4.2-cubic-metre bucket with 8 bolted on teeth and two wear plates features a spill guard plate to prevent material loss. The maximum dump height, at 3.2 m, is supported by a 3.6 -m boom. The second stage 93 sand filter in the hood of the machine filters over 95 percent of particles when working in dusty conditions such as mines to keep the job smooth and efficient.
Efficiency at the forefront
The SDLG L975F's fuel consumption is halved. With the same material load, the L975F's fuel consumption is almost 50 percent lower than that of two standard 5-tonne wheel loaders, saving businesses on expensive operational costs.
At seven tonnes, the loader faces large and heavy material moving jobs, so operational efficiency is crucial. The improved confluent hydraulics system automatically adjusts its fuel pump according to the load size, reducing overflow loss by 12 percent in comparison to older models. The company says that its proprietary power matching system sets a new benchmark for energy saving.
Safety and comfort
With a standard bucket capacity of 4.2 cubic metres (optional: 3.5 to 7.0), the machine features an automatic lift limit, where the boom stops when reaching its highest point to avoid damage to the cylinder. The hydraulic wet brakes contain a double-circuit system to ensure reliable and safe braking where necessary.
The cab features pilot dual-handle control, which are light and flexible to operate, making unloading tasks easy and comfortable.

The all-new CASE TR340B compact track loader — operating at 90 horsepower with a 3,400-pound rated operating capacity — is the most powerful radial-lift CTL in the CASE lineup. Its all-new 8-inch LCD display improves on industry-leading CASE visibility with a new backup camera that is viewable in both forward and reverse operation. The display also showcases critical operating information and "trip" details. All-new electro-hydraulic controls, managed through the display, make it easier than ever for operators to dial CASE CTLs into specific application demands. All new cab controls and joysticks make the new TR340B easy to own and operate.
Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
