SDLG to launch new wheel loader in India at Bauma CONEXPO 2018
SDLG will be unveiling a new 5 t-rated wheel loader in India during Bauma CONEXPO India 2018, which will be held at HUDA Ground, Gurgaon, Delhi, from December 11 to 14. The four-day event is one of the largest construction equipment tradeshows in Asia.
“With the Indian government continuing to invest in infrastructure, the new wheel loader will be a great fit for heavy-load applications such as material handling, land clearing and general earthmoving,” said Surat Mehta, head of the SDLG business in India.
Alongside the new loader, SDLG will also display the G9138 motor grader and the L946 wheel loader at Bauma Conexpo India 2018. The G9138 motor grader is the smaller of two motor grader models that SDLG offers in the region and is ideal for construction of smaller municipal or rural roads.
Since 2015, the construction industry in India has grown. Mehta says he expects the trend to continue.
“For wheel loaders, SDLG has a strong market position in the 3- to 5-ton range, and we plan to further strengthen our position,” Mehta said. “For motor graders, there is potential to grow our customer base as well, with road construction activity levels remaining high in India.”
Bauma Conexpo India 2018 is organised by Messe München and the Association of Equipment Manufacturers. Some 650 exhibitors from 30 countries are expected at this year’s event.
