Sandvik launches new low profile loader

Sandvik has released the LH115L five tonne low profile loader for challenging mining conditions.

The machine builds on the capabilities of its predecessor, the EJC115L, and come with the latest safety features.

The LH115L is easy to maintain, resulting in optimised lifetime operational costs. In addition, Sandvik provides the full low profile portfolio of underground drills and bolters to ensure matching sets of equipment.

The machines also feature powerful drivetrain, a robust frame designed for low profile operations and simplified electronics to enhance productivity on site.

The company will construct and launch the machines at its new manufacturing facility in South Africa.

According to Sandvik, the new facility represents a new chapter in the company’s development and reinforces its aim to play a part in skills development and local manufacturing capabilities.
