Spotlight-SDLG India

SDLG new launches at bauma CONEXPO INDIA


Bauma CONEXPO  India 2016 will mark the official launch in the country of the G9138 motor grader and L933L wheel loader from SDLG. The new units will help India meet fast-rising demand for road building equipment, giving contractors a lighter and more economical option to help them beat project deadlines.


Against the backdrop of rapid infrastructure development and increased government drive for road building, motor graders have become one of the fastest selling equipment categories in India as contractors look to speed up project schedules. While SDLG’s established and larger G9190 has enjoyed notable success in Asia, rural development projects have prompted the need for smaller and lighter motor graders for narrower road construction. This is where SDLG’s new G9138 will really appeal. “The well-publicized increase in the road building program has seen a significant pick-up in activity levels. Contractors in the road building industry are under greater scrutiny than ever before,In particular they are under pressure to meet construction deadlines and that’s where having reliable equipment – such as motor graders from SDLG – becomes most important. With the new G9138 we are offering a machine that is tailored to the needs of road building contractors in India.” said Sanu George,Business Head, SDLG India.



SDLG machines are known for their reliable operation, robust performance and fast return on investment and the G9138 offers all of this and more. The highly maneuverable machine also gives the operator precise control through a fully digital instrument panel that includes electronic monitoring. The integrated panel also offers straightforward inspection and maintenance.

Adding to the motor grader’s operability is its swing frame, which delivers greater flexibility in a variety of work scenarios. The articulating swing frame’s movements allow the blade to generate more power and carry a heavy windrow. It also allows the unit to make turns at more acute angles for close-quarter work or smaller roads. For greater durability and easier operations over its lifetime, the swing frame’s composite bearing is lubrication and maintenance-free.

With an overall working weight of 12,000 kg, the G9138 is powered by a Deutz BF4M1013-15T3R/2engine that has an output of 111 kW at 2100 rpm. Complemented by a fully Automatic ZF 6WG 200 transmission system, the G9138 is able to reach maximum forward and backward velocities of 39 km/h and 24.5 km/h respectively. It can deliver up to 75.4 kN of traction force.

In combination, this delivers power to the moldboard, which is a hefty 3048 mm by 565 mm by 16 mm. The G9138’s blade can cut depths of up to 575 mm and create bank slopes of up to 90 degrees. The sliding range of the blade is 500 mm, while it can be inclined up to 47 degrees forward and 5 degrees backward. Maximum gradeability in travel is 20 degrees.



In India, SDLG currently offers two wheel loaders: the 3-ton rated LG936L and the 5-ton rated LG958L, both of which are popular in applications such as general construction, dockside work and mining. At this year’s bC India the company will introduce a third model for the market, the new L933L, showing it alongside a LG958L.

Equipped with a Weichai Deutz WP6G125E331 turbocharged engine, the 3 ton-rated L933L satisfies the regional requirementsfor emissions levels in India, while offering users reliable performance and excellent durability. With a power output of 92kW at 2,300 rpm, the L933L can handle material handling tasks with ease while its maximum grade ability is 30 degrees. Overall working weight for the unit is 10,200 – 10,250 kg and the machine can deliver up to 96 kN of breakout and traction force. Its steep 45degree dump angle and high 45degree bucket rollback allows for more efficient load carrying and quicker cycle times. Bucket options for the loader vary from 1.4 m3– 3 m3, and the design includes a thickened anti-friction plate which minimises cutting resistance.

The load-sensing fully-hydraulic system reduces power consumption and improves working efficiency through the use of a single-pump design. The enlarged radiator also optimizes the use of inlet and outlet air channels to lower the temperature of water and oil in the hydraulic system, making the machine highly energy efficient and reliable.

Aside from high energy efficiency, the L933L offers ease of operation through a fixed-shaft power shift transmission. This offers four forward and two reverse gears with a single-stage, single-phase three-element hydraulic torque converter. The axis-fixed semi-automatic transmission makes full use of the engine’s power to increase torque and deliver greater traction. The single-plate rear frame and a four-plate front frame uses joint bearings to ensure flexible operation and a small turning radius.
