SDLG's biggest wheel loader ever

sdlg l975f wheel loader

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.

Streamlined design 

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.
