The SDLG L956F wheel loader is giving fast return on investment to a road contractor in Indonesia with low fuel consumption and reliable operations at the quarry.
The road contractor PT Gorip Nanda Guna purchased an SDLG L956F wheel loader to boost operations at its quarry in East Java, Indonesia. On the 40-hectare quarry, the wheel loader is hard at work moving large quantities of material for the road contractor. The reliable and fuel-efficient wheel loader is helping reduce operating costs at the quarry.
"We have a huge quarry and our project will take at least 10 years to complete. Therefore, it is very important for us to choose the best and most efficient machines to work on site, which is why we chose SDLG's L956F wheel loader," said Gorip, Owner of PT Gorip Nanda Guna, which also owns the quarry. "The heavy-duty L956F is powerful and features a large bucket that makes moving materials easy."
At the quarry in Cukurguling, East Java, the L956F works about eight hours per day and loads between 150 to 200 tonne per hour of material, with average cycle times of about two to three minute.
The 5 t-rated L956F has a 3 cu m bucket capacity and is the smallest of the three F-series wheel loaders. Powered by six-cylinder Weichai engines, the L956F is one of the newest wheel loaders in SDLG's F-series and features updated frame, chassis, transmission, cabin, engine hood and counterweight.
Onsite since October 2017, PT Gorip Nanda Guna, a Surabaya-based road building contractor, purchased the wheel loader from PT Indotruck Utama, SDLG's distribution partner in Indonesia. In addition to the L956F, PT Gorip Nanda Guna also owns an SDLG LG938L wheel loader. The 3 t LG938L features a 1.8 cu m bucket capacity and maximum breakout force of 73 kN.
"The SDLG L956F is a heavy-duty machine that is powerful. The machine has proven to be very tough and reliable and certainly value for money. Its low fuel consumption has greatly helped us to reduce costs," said Gorip, who like many Indonesians uses only one name.
