Star Blue Metals adds SDLG wheel loader

Star Blue Metals, an Indian metal supplier, recently added a 4 t rated L946 wheel loader to its fleet. The L946 wheel loader has a maximum bucket capacity of 3.5 cu m, a maximum dumping distance of 1 m and a maximum operating weight of 13,000 kg. L946 wheel loaders are fitted with high-roll buckets offering extra reach that is especially useful when loading onto trucks with high sides.

“Over the past seven years, the SDLG wheel loaders have delivered excellent support to our operations,” said G Nantha Kumar, Business Head, Star Blue Metals. “Our operators like the cabin environment and machine controls as it is easy to use. We were convinced with SDLG’s value and performance that we decided to purchase our fourth SDLG wheel loader last year.”

On site since 2012, the three existing wheel loaders — two units of the 3 t rated LG936L and one LG938L — are mainly used to load aggregates onto trucks. Working between five to nine hours a day, the wheel loaders transport an average of 500 tonne of materials daily. The wheel loaders are expected to remain on site for another two years. Star Blue Metals purchased all SDLG wheel loaders from Advanced Construction Technologies (ACT), SDLG’s distributor in Chennai, India
