Next generation model

15-tonne Toro™ LH515i underground loader with more capacity

S‌andvik Mining and Rock Solutions is launching a new, higher-capacity 15-tonne size class loader as a next generation model for the current 14-tonne Sandvik LH514. The 15-tonne Toro™ LH515i has one tonne greater capacity than its predecessor, yet it is designed to operate within the same footprint. This new member of the Toro™ family has been redesigned from the ground up, leveraging all of the benefits of its predecessor, while improving the design based on customer feedback.

The new loader has been designed following the principles of intelligence and simplicity. Toro™ LH515i features a totally new Sandvik intelligent control system with 12-inch touchscreen color display, making loader health monitoring easy, providing quick access to data and enabling new solutions for efficient troubleshooting. With a multitude of smart technologies and optimized for use with Sandvik’s AutoMine® and OptiMine® systems, Toro™ LH515i brings digitalization to the operator’s fingertips, enabling optimal productivity. To ensure quick and efficient maintenance, the loader features easy access to service points, roomy component layout organized to facilitate servicing and excellent access to systems, both in the cabin and on top of the equipment.


Further, Toro™ LH515i is stable, agile and smooth to operate. The loader features an entirely new cabin designed to provide an ergonomic working environment for operators during long shifts, including increased leg space, new seat and dashboard and improved visibility over the extremely flat rear frame of the loader.


Toro™ LH515i is available with two different engine configurations from Volvo Penta: the state-of-the-art 265 kW Stage V diesel engine, and the 256 kW Tier III engine. Equipped with reliable selective catalytic reduction (SCR) exhaust gas technology and a new diesel particulate filter (DPF), the Stage V configuration meets very stringent emission regulations. To further help to reduce their greenhouse gas footprint, both versions of engines are fully compatible with paraffinic diesel fuels meeting the EN 15 940 standard.
