Sandvik Mining and Rock Solutions is introducing the newest addition to its underground line-up, the Sandvik Toro LH515i underground loader.
The 15-tonne size class machine is the next-generation version of the OEM’s current LH514, and while it has a greater capacity it has been designed to operate with the same footprint.
“This new member of the Toro family has been redesigned from the ground up, leveraging all of the benefits of its predecessor, while improving the design based on customer feedback,” Sandvik said.
Specifically, it features a totally new Sandvik intelligent control system with 12-inch touchscreen color display for easier loader health monitoring, easier data access and more efficient troubleshooting.
It has been optimized for use with Sandvik’s AutoMine and OptiMine systems and, to ensure quick and efficient maintenance, the loader offers easy access to service points, a component layout that has been designed to aid in servicing and has excellent access to systems in-cabin and atop the equipment.
Toro LH515i is available with two different engine configurations from Volvo Penta: the state-of-the-art 265 kW Stage V diesel engine, and the 256 kW Tier III engine. It also is equipped with a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) exhaust gas technology and a new diesel particulate filter (DPF) with Stage V configuration.
“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,” Sandvik said.
