Designed with operator and maintenance safety in mind, the rugged loader is equipped with a quiet, spacious and ergonomic cabin. Smart placement of key service areas as well as multiple digital solutions offer easy maintenance access.
The Toro™ LH517i loader fuel efficient 310kW Tier 2 Volvo engine delivers powerful thrust for fast bucket filling and high speed tramming for high productivity.

When ultra-low Sulphur fuel is available, Sandvik offers Stage V and Tier 4f low emission engine options. The Stage V engine meets the relevant European emission regulations whereas the Tier 4f delivers significantly reduced MSHA and CANMET ventilation rates - still maintaining loader performance and fuel efficiency.
