SDLG’s L958F Wheel Loader

High torque, performance and fuel efficiency are all hallmark qualities of SDLG’s L958F Wheel Loader.

Available through Australian distributor CJD Equipment, the company is able to offer nationwide sales and support with 17 branches and a network of 20 service agents and dealers. 

Used in quarries, feedlots, material handling, waste and recycling and general construction, the machine is considered an all-round loader. L958F’s heavy-duty transmission incorporates a kick-down function ensuring a versatile machine.

From easy-to-access service checkpoints to an ergonomic and spacious cab – the machine aims to offer a high level of operator comfort.

A fully certified ROPS/FOPS air conditioned cab in addition to wrap around pillarless front and rear windscreens works to offer a high level of vision and safety. The machine offers full hydraulic wet disc brakes with an electro-hydraulic external disc park brake. 

Productivity in the machine is bolstered by axles designed and built at the factory, which ensures an ideal driveline match. A standard Volvo compatible quick hitch and general purpose bucket also offers operators efficiencies. 

Its high torque and fuel-efficient engine is connected to a tropical cooling package which allows it to work at full capacity in the toughest of conditions. The 217 horsepower and 162 kilowatt engine works at 2200 revolutions per minute and a maximum torque of 980 newton metres. Minimum fuel consumption is 15 litres per hour.
