This week, Sandvik rolled out the 15-metric-ton (mt) Toro LH515i load-haul-dump (LHD), which has 1 mt (1.1 tons) greater capacity than its predecessor in the same footprint. Sandvik said the new LHD has been redesigned from the ground up, leveraging all of the benefits of its predecessor, while improving the design based on customer feedback.

The LH515i features a totally new Sandvik intelligent control system with 12-inch touchscreen color display, making loader health monitoring easy, providing quick access to data and enabling new solutions for efficient troubleshooting, according to the company.

It is available with two different engine configurations from Volvo Penta: the 265-kW Stage V diesel engine and the 256-kW Tier III engine. Equipped with reliable selective catalytic reduction (SCR) exhaust gas technology and a new diesel particulate filter (DPF), the Stage V configuration meets very stringent emission regulations. To further help to reduce their greenhouse gas footprint, both versions of engines are fully compatible with paraffinic diesel fuels meeting the EN 15940 standard.

The launch of the new LHD is part of Sandvik’s celebration of the 50-year journey of Toro loaders and trucks. Miners can learn more about the Toro LH515i loader here or at MINExpo INTERNATIONAL 2021 September 13-15 in Las Vegas.
