Sandvik introduces Toro™ LH202 narrow vein loader with Stage V engine

Sandvik is upgrading its three-tonne loader for narrow vein applications. Previously known as Sandvik LH202, the loader is now available with a Stage V compliant engine and joins the bull family as Toro™ LH202.

Sandvik’s new Toro™ LH202 loader is a reliable workhorse designed specifically for narrow-vein underground mining applications. With its robust structure, very compact size and three-tonne payload capacity, the loader is tailored to meet productivity targets in challenging environments and is optimized to fit tunnel widths between 2 and 2.5 meters to reduce dilution.

In addition to underground narrow vein mines, Toro™ LH202 is ideally suited for tunneling. Equipped with the new Stage V engine and relevant options, the loader meets European requirements and is optimal for civil engineering and small-scale construction sites for building new and improving existing infrastructure. Due to its relatively light weight and the possibility to disassemble the equipment for transport, Toro™ LH202 is ideal for projects located in remote areas with challenging access.

Engine technology by Deutz

Toro™ LH202 is now available with a new Stage V engine from Deutz, which delivers best in class MSHA and CANMET ventilation rates with ultra-low-sulfur diesel fuel while maintaining performance and fuel efficiency. The Stage V engine aftertreatment is a diesel particulate filter, which uses passive regeneration during normal engine operation to oxidize the soot trapped in the DPF core. The other available engine configuration is a robust, reliable and well-known 50 kW air-cooled turbocharged direct injection diesel engine, also from the engine manufacturer Deutz, with catalytic purifier and muffler.

In addition to traditional fossil diesel fuel, the Stage V engine can use paraffinic diesel fuels, meeting the requirements of EN 15940, which reduces emissions of CO, CO2, HC, NOx and diesel particulates. Further, these engines can also use biofuel blends (such as FAME) meeting requirements of EN 590. Higher blends may also be used, but always contact your Sandvik representative prior to using any higher blends.
