German mining equipment maker GHH has shipped its first LF-7 load haul dumper (LHD) to India.
According to the manufacturer, the LF-7 currently offers the largest bucket, most powerful engine and best climb performance in its class.
The LHD carries 7 tonnes or 3.6 m3. It is 8.900 mm long in driving position, 2.240 mm wide at the bucket and 2.200 mm high at the cab when fully loaded. This makes the LF-7 suitable for narrow vein operations, too.
The 18-tonne operating weight loader is powered by a 164 kW Cummins diesel engine and complies with Tier 3 and 4 and EU Stage 5 emissions standards. Vehicle data can be called up and evaluated via the "GHH InSiTE" software, and GHH offers LHD´s with payloads from 3 to 21 tonnes.
The deal comes after the vehicle was shown at the Mining Expo in Kolkata in April. After the event, GHH arranged the onward transport to the unnamed launch customer, who also ordered further machines.
