SDLG launches LG953 wheel loader in Indonesia


SDLG launched the LG953 wheel loader for the Indonesian market at the end of 2020. With its ability to handle tough working conditions and its durable build, this medium to long wheelbase wheel loader is designed for use in the country’s construction sites, factories, ports, and mines.

The 5 t-rated LG953 is powered by a 162 kW engine, has a bucket capacity of 2.8 m3, a maximum breakout force of 175 kN and a tipping load of 110 kN. The wheel loader features a highly efficient Wei Chai Tier 2 Engine and a reliable SDLG F2/R1 planetary power shift transmission.

“With the growth in construction, mining and manufacturing sectors expected to restart alongside investments in infrastructure, this is a good opportunity for us to release a new model of our trusted loaders,” says Gerrit Lambert, SDLG commercial director in Indonesia. “The LG953 will be a great addition to any job site that requires a powerful and reliable loader that can handle a wide range of materials and conditions.”

The LG953 boasts an extensive range of features that make it an excellent, general-purpose performer for most environments. The new loader features an SDLG special reinforced drive axle that increases the reliability of transmission and deceleration by 60 percent. The loader also has an enhanced movable arm and plate that increases the payload that can be delivered with each movement. With its medium-long wheelbase, the loader is thus able to deal with all kinds of loads including high-density material such as coal ore, aggregate, wet sand, and minerals. The fast bucket cycle time will increase your production.

The LG953 wheel loader is designed to be easy to operate and maintain. It features an ergonomically redesigned cab design and control box equipped with a wide vision and low noise cab and adjustable armrests so that operators can perform at their best. There is a circular fuel gauge and sensor to allow operators to easily check the oil level and when the loader needs to be repaired or maintained, the internals of the machine can be easily accessed with a rotatable fuel tank and a removable step ladder.

“SDLG wheel loaders have always been popular in the Indonesian market. The launch of the LG953 in Indonesia demonstrates our continued commitment to providing effective and reliable solutions to the market,” Lambert said.
