Sandvik introduced its new Toro™ LH208L loader. The loader was created for conditions in which working height is limited. With an equipment height of just 1.6 meters, the payload capacity is 7.7 tonnes. The main market is southern Africa.
The LH208L loader is fitted with a ROPS- and FOPS-certified canopy, protecting the operator in the event of roll-over or falling objects. The canopy door includes a door lock and latch mechanism, with an interlock switch which automatically applies the brakes and inactivates boom, bucket and steering when the door is opened. Adjustable high-power LED lights are standard to enable better operator visibility, and it also includes a standard monitoring camera system with front and rear cameras. To improve overall underground safety underground, a proximity detection system interface option is also available.
An integrated weighing system measures the payload when lifting the boom and the number of buckets filled during a shift. This is digitally recorded in the My Sandvik Digital Services Knowledge Box™.
The engine is a Deutz 140-kW Stage II engine with catalytic purifier and muffler. A diesel particulate filter is optional.
