SDLG continues to expand its international product portfolio with the launch of a new 8.4 t backhoe loader in Africa and the Middle East. With reliability and performance at its core, the versatile SDLG B877 is packed with features to give owners a fully loaded machine, at great value, that can tackle more jobs with precision and control.
Whatever way you look at it, the B877 is built to work. The new SDLG backhoe loader will give owners a great value and highly efficient tool for work across multiple job sites. Packed with additional features, the B877 includes a multi-purpose front bucket, 70 kW engine and air conditioning as standard – features that many other manufacturers only provide as options.
The new machine is first being launched in Angola, Kenya and Morocco. Other markets in Africa, as well as select markets in the Middle East, will follow in the coming months.
« Backhoe loaders appeal to many businesses, particularly smaller companies making their first equipment purchase,” explains Joakim Almqvist, EMEA director at SDLG. “With this new machine, we offer them an excellent product at a great price that is packed with all the features and capabilities they need to work on a wide variety of projects. The backhoe loader market in the Middle East and Africa is one of the largest outside of America and Europe, so we are very excited to introduce this to customers across the two regions. »
The B877 is designed for all-day operation. Its robust frame and components ensure it can withstand the rigors of demanding job sites, while the operator’s cab not only provides excellent visibility to ensure job site efficiency and better safety, but the suspension seat, air conditioning and opening rear windows and will keep the operator comfortable all day long.
A powerful turbo charged 70 kW engine provides a torque reserve of 40% and is low on emissions and high on fuel economy. With its hydraulic torque converter and synchronized four-speed transmission, the B877 can reach speeds of up to 40 km/h.
The B877 comes with both a special front-steering drive axle, which can be disengaged electrically for greater efficiency at high speeds, and a rigid drive axle with closed wet brake and an electronic differential lock, for better traction in dangerous conditions. The machine’s 55 degree turning radius also ensures excellent maneuverability at congested and tight job sites.
A three-pump, four-valve hydraulic loop is designed to ensure that lifting and steering operations can occur seamlessly and simultaneously. Plus the machine’s hydraulic elements are centrally arranged for easy maintenance and service, while auxiliary hydraulics can be added easily.
To offer even greater versatility, the B877 can be equipped with a variety of attachments and tools to handle an even more diverse range of tasks.
