Swedish equipment maker Sandvik plans to target South Africa with its upgraded Toro LH208L low-profile loader.
Sandvik said the LH208L has an equipment height of just 1.6 meters but high payload capacity of 7.7 tonnes, enabling it to operate efficiently in conditions where working height is extremely limited.
The loader features integrated weighing system IWS, which measures the payload when lifting the boom, as well as the number of buckets filled during a shift and traction control, and traction control.
The loader is equipped with a robust Deutz 140 kW Stage II engine, with catalytic purifier and muffler, with an optionally available diesel particulate filter (DPF).
The LH208L 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 that automatically applies the brakes and inactivates boom, bucket and steering when the door is opened.
