CJD Equipment adds another important step in agricultural development with the latest SDLG L946H wheel loader
Simple, reliable, comfortable and productive – when it comes to the latest in CJD Equipment’s SDLG range, national product manager Andrew Egan has nothing but praise.
For 13 years of its 50-year history, CJD has distributed SDLG (Shandong Lingong Equipment) equipment to both the Australian and international heavy machinery markets – and with the latest addition to the H-series range, that market has taken another step in technological advancement.
“The L946H is our most popular selling model,” Egan says.
“The reason for that is twofold – one, it’s value for money, and two, it’s versatile.
“Its size is a sweet spot that suits several segments and it can be used for batch plants, quarries, feed lots, material handling and anything to do with general construction.”
As the largest wheel loader in the H-series offered by CJD, excelling across the board is essential.
At 13 tonnes and with a 173 horsepower engine, the L946H wheel loader can reach a top speed of 36km/h, equipped with a 4-tonne rated load capacity and 2.3 cubic metre bucket that is specifically designed for heavy-duty work.
Along with its high load capacity, the SDLG L946H wheel loader also boasts a small turning radius, making it well-suited for heavy load and bulk material handling applications.
The L946H features an optimised frame and boom structure for increased stability and manoeuvrability and features a “high torque, fuel-efficient” Weichai Tier 3 engine for powerful performance, reliability and extended maintenance intervals for reduced running costs.
“What makes this machine so reliable is a mix of notable working components,” Egan says.
“It has a simple, easy-to-use electronic system for every worker, a tropical cooling package for working in harsh conditions and comes with our comprehensive three-year/6000-hour warranty.
“This isn’t something CJD would offer unless we were completely confident in the machine’s reliability.”
The L946H’s hydraulic system promotes advanced sealing technology and high working pressures to increase efficiency and productivity.
“The machine features the two-speed power shift transmission: a kick-down function on the transmission, which enables it to go from second to first and then automatically back to second to improve the efficiency when operating it,” Egan says.
“CJD also works alongside SDLG and is nationally backed by our other equipment branches and dealer network.
“These stock 90 per cent of all our parts and are available for delivery within 24 hours to the nearest capital city.”
The H-Series cab is designed with a curved front windscreen for better vision, more space, improved sealing and reduced noise to target the necessity of comfort at work.
The L946H also features extra air vents to contribute to operator experience, and the cab is ROPS (Roll Over Protective Structure) and FOPS (Falling Object Protective Structure) certified for safety.
“For operator comfort, it comes with premium seats, all-round vision and an adjustable steering wheel,” Egan says.
“Everything that the user needs is in the right places – like the adjustable wrist rests and the optimal control locations that best help the operators remain comfortable and ensure easy use.”
CJD Equipment operates nationwide with branches, dealers and service centres throughout Australia.
