Poor weather failed to dampen interest in SDLG's new concept excavator and wheeled loader at bauma China 2014
SDLG has lifted the covers on two new concept machines it has developed, a wheeled loader and an excavator. These models represent a major development for SDLG as they will compete in larger equipment classes than current models from the firm. Both the excavator and the wheeled loader will suit duties in heavy duty equipment segments such as quarrying, where reliability and durability are crucial to deliver maximum utilisation. High productivity is also claimed, along with good all round visibility and a comfortable and spacious operator station.
The LG4640E is a 46tonne machine that wields a 2.1m3 bucket and is powered by a diesel delivering 245kW. Meanwhile the LG9120F is 36tonne wheeled loader capable of carrying 12tonnes in its 6m3 capacity bucket.
SDLG did not reveal a launch date for the two machines but said that both will be available with different engines to suit the emissions requirements of the key sales territories.
The new concept design have been unveiled at a time when SDLG is developing its market share, despite a tough economic climate in many areas. The company claims to be one of the fastest growing construction equipment brands in Asia, with these new concept designs showcasing the firm’s capabilities.
Wang Zhizhong, chairman of Lingong said, “Our goal is to establish SDLG as the leading Chinese brand of construction equipment,” he said. “To do that, we know we need not only the right products, but the right distribution network and the right customer support.”
The firm also held its dealer conference at the exhibition, highlighting its steadily improving global support network for the range.
