After the first delivery of a Tembo 4 x 4 ELV, the manufacturer of mining machines GHH announced that it has now also shipped the first LF-7 load haul dumper (LHD) to India. The vehicle was shown at the Mining Expo in Kolkata in April. The exhibition is considered the largest of its kind in the country, with supra-regional importance due to its location in the far east. After the event, GHH arranged the onward transport to the unnamed launch customer, who also ordered further machines.
GHH has shipped the first LF-7 LHD to India
According to the manufacturer, the LF-7 currently offers the largest bucket, most powerful engine and best climb performance in its class. The LHD carries 7 tonnes or 3.6 m3. It is 8900 mm long in driving position, 2240 mm wide at the bucket and 2200 mm high at the cab when fully loaded. This makes the LF-7 suitable for narrow vein operations, too. The 18-tonne operating weight loader is powered by a 164 kW Cummins diesel engine and complies with Tier 3 and 4 and EU Stage 5 emissions standards.
