SDLG has launched an 8.4-tonne backhoe loader in the Middle East.

The SDLG B877 has been designed to deliver a potent reliability, and versatility to the region’s end users.

With a 70kW engine and air conditioning as standard, SDLG is also confident that the machine will appeal to those looking for performance and operator comfort, but without the premium price tag.

“Backhoe loaders appeal to many businesses, particularly smaller companies making their first equipment purchase,” said 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,” he added.

SDLG claims that the B877’s robust frame and components make the backhoe loader ideally suited to all-day operation.

In keeping with the aforementioned focus on entry-level customers, the Chinese manufacturer has also taken steps to ensure that operators remain comfortable whilst working. The backhoe loader’s cab sports a suspension seat, air conditioning, and opening rear windows.

The B877’s 70kW engine provides a torque reserve of 40%, whilst a hydraulic torque convertor and synchronised four-speed transmission allows the unit to reach speeds of up to 40km/h.

“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,” Almqvist concluded.
