Sandvik has added another low-profile loader to the Toro family, with the Toro LH208L loader designed to operate efficiently in conditions where working height is extremely limited.
The Toro LH208L loader is a strong and reliable workhorse for low-profile hard rock mining, specifically designed for the toughest and smallest of conditions, with an equipment height of only 1.6 metres and a payload capacity of 7.7 tonnes.
With its robust reinforced structure, compact size, high payload capacity and components that are designed to perform in the mine environment, the loader is tailored to meet the productivity targets in applications where space is limited.
Toro LH208L loader frames are reinforced to resist ground and roof impacts, and the welded steel box structures used in the frame and boom provide strong resistance to shock loads.
The loader comes with a roll-over protective structure (ROPS) and falling object protective structure (FOPS) certified canopy, protecting the operator in case of rolling over or falling objects.
The canopy door includes a door lock and latch mechanism with an interlock switch that automatically applies brakes and inactivates boom, bucket and steering when the door is opened.
All-around operator visibility is further improved with a standard monitoring camera system including front and rear cameras, and to improve overall safety underground, a proximity detection system (PDS) interface option is also available.
The loader features the Sandvik integrated weighing system (IWS) and traction control as options to improve productivity.
The release of the Toro LH208L loader comes one month after the Toro LH307 loader was added to the Sandvik family.
