For the new generation of Sandvik loaders and trucks, the Toro™ stands for safer, stronger and smarter. “Safety is at the forefront of our product design and crucial for those who work in or around our loaders and trucks. We also believe that environmentally-sound solutions and sustainability principles firmly belong with safety. Being strong and powerful is at the very heart of the old Toro™. To be robust, reliable and productive in the most demanding of conditions is part of our heritage, and we will keep that with us going forward. Being smart involves seamless integration with Sandvik’s AutoMine® and OptiMine® offering, but it is also about innovation and smart design: e.g. how we arrange maintenance access, improve efficiency and reduce waste. Developing intelligence on all frontiers is, and will be, one of the key elements of the Toro™ going forward”, says Wayne Scrivens, VP Product Line, Load & Haul.
Upgraded Sandvik intelligent loaders Toro™ LH517i and Toro™ LH621i
The large intelligent loaders Toro™ LH517i and Toro™ LH621i now come with several design upgrades aimed to further boost productivity, reduce total cost of ownership and improve operator experience. Both loaders can now be equipped with a Stage V state-of-the-art engine, meeting the most stringent current emission regulations. Operator speed assist, a new feature that will be available with the Stage V engine option, specifically supports downhill tramming and preserves the equipment brakes as the Sandvik Intelligent Control System can be set to limit maximum speed. A new traction control system, available as an option, reduces wheel spin and slippage when penetrating to the muck pile, extending tyre lifetime. Finally, a training simulator, Digital Trainer, has been added to the Load and Haul equipment range, offering a compact and flexible solution for the safe training of operators, with authentic controls and real loader control system.
