SDLG Loader Optimizes Operations at Holcim’s Indonesia Plant

An SDLG LG936L wheel loader is proving vital to operations at a Holcim concrete plant in Bandung, Indonesia. Contractor PT Sarana Karya Cipta Transindo is using the fuel-efficient LG936L to produce high quality concrete products for Holcim, one of the world’s leading suppliers of cement and aggregates.

“The LG936L has really improved efficiency and operations at the plant,” said Rieko Stevanus, owner of PT Sarana Karya Cipta Transindo. “It’s smooth and reliable performance allows us to move up to 65 m3 per hour.”

On site since April 2018, the LG936L works between 15 to 20 hours daily, primarily transporting materials such as limestone, crushed stones and sand, from the stockpiles to the concrete plant’s hopper, to help produce 3,000 m3 of concrete monthly for Holcim.

“The SDLG wheel loader is a reliable workhorse and needs only 1 minute and 20 seconds to pick up the materials from the stockpile and unload at the hopper 30 m away,” Stevanus said.

With an air-conditioned steel cab with wide visibility and a large operating space, the operator is protected against the elements and enjoys optimum comfort. With the option to install rollover protective structures and falling object protective structures, contractors have flexibility to adapt the lightweight wheel loader to meet changing job site needs.

Powered by a 92 kW Weichai Deutz engine, the 3 t-rated LG936L is highly-maneuverable. The 1.8 m3 bucket on the unit can be raised to a dumping height of 3.3 m, and the maximum breakout force is 96 kN.

PT Sarana Karya Cipta Transindo owns a fleet of seven SDLG LG936L, which were all purchased from PT Indotruck Utama, SDLG’s distribution partner in Indonesia.
