Sandvik Mining and Rock Solutions have released a new 15-tonne size class loader, the Toro LH515i.
The next generation of Sandvik’s current 14-tonne LH514, the loader has a one-tonne greater capacity than its predecessor as it looks to evolve the strengths of the previous model.
Remodelled from the ground up, with the proven ability of the 14-tonne LH514 in mind, Sandvik welcomed customer feedback to improve the design and intelligence of the trusted range.
The Toro LH515i features a new Sandvik intelligent control system with 12-inch touchscreen colour display, making loader health monitoring easy, providing quick access to data and enabling new solutions for efficient troubleshooting.
Compatible with Sandvik’s AutoMine and OptiMine systems, the vehicle boasts a multitude of smart technologies, bringing digitalisation to the operator’s fingertips.
With easy access to service points, roomy component layout to facilitate servicing and excellent access to systems, both in the cabin and on top of the equipment, the Toro LH515i has been built for ease of maintenance.
The 15-tonne loader is also stable, agile and smooth to operate, while a new cabin includes increased leg space, a new seat and dashboard, and improved visibility over the flat rear frame of the loader.
Toro LH515i 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 assist in lowering emissions, both engine versions are fully compatible with paraffinic diesel fuels meeting the EN 15940 European Standard.
