Best in class production performance: Sandvik introduces 7-tonne Toro™ LH307 loader with multiple updates

Sandvik adds a new loader to its rapidly expanding Toro™ family, Toro™ LH307. In addition to featuring a multitude of design updates and new options to both hardware and software, Toro™ LH307 loader also carries more tonnes than its predecessor Sandvik LH307, with the new model’s payload capacity increased to 7 tonnes.

Best in class production performance

To improve productivity, Toro™ LH307 loader from Sandvik enters the market with an increased nominal payload capacity; the former 6.7 tonne loader now carries 7 tonnes when equipped with the standard 3 m3 bare lip bucket. Among the new options designed to improve productivity include, for example, Sandvik integrated weighing system IWS and traction control, both already available for the larger Sandvik loaders. The integrated weighing system measures the payload when lifting the boom, as well as the number of buckets filled during a shift, and records the results to My Sandvik Digital Services Knowledge Box™. Payload monitoring assists in maximizing productivity by optimizing loads, reducing overloading and helping to identify training needs. The traction control system reduces wheel slippage when penetrating to the muck pile and filling the bucket, extending tire lifetime and decreasing rubber waste.

Ready for digitalization with AutoMine® and OptiMine®

As part of upgrading the 7 tonne loader, specific attention has been applied to digitalization readiness. The loader has benefitted from control system upgrades, including 7” touch screen color display for the operator as standard. The loader has been designed for use with AutoMine®, Sandvik’s advanced mining automation system for increased safety, productivity and reduced cost. AutoMine® integration can be achieved by ordering an optional on-board package for the new loader for immediate autonomous use, or by selecting the automation readiness option, allowing easy retrofitting of AutoMine® later in the loader’s lifetime. Sandvik OptiMine®, also available as an option, delivers descriptive and predictive insights to improve operations and data analytics.

Engine technology by Volvo Penta

To serve varying customer and country specific needs, two 160 kW engine alternatives are available, both from Volvo Penta. The standard engine is an 8-liter Stage III A, capable of operating on diesel fuels with up to 3000 ppm sulphur content, whereas the optional Stage IV requires ultra-low sulphur diesel fuel.

The Stage III A engine also has an optional passive diesel particulate filter (DPF) exhaust reduction system. To reduce emissions and consumption of fossil fuel, both engines can also use paraffinic fuel, thereby meeting EN 15940 requirements.
