Anderson County finds perfect balance of reliability and value with SDLG
Precinct 1 in Anderson County, Texas, has chosen an SDLG L938F for moving and loading aggregate materials because of its reliability and competitive price point.
Municipalities in North America continue to adopt SDLG wheel loaders for various projects, with Precinct 1 in Anderson County, Texas, being one of the latest. Maintaining the land and roads of towns requires well-built, reliable equipment that won’t put a strain on municipal funds. SDLG’s value proposition and reliability made it an attractive choice for the precinct.
After 26 years of using used equipment, the precinct’s management sought a new wheel loader that was intuitive enough for operators to use with minimal training. It opted to go with the 2.5 yd3-capacity SDLG L938F to aid in roadway maintenance and other related tasks.
Greg Chapin, county commissioner for the precinct, went with SDLG after testing out the L938F for two weeks on a demanding project.
“During this time, I demoed several other machines of various price points and sizes,” he said. “When compared side by side, the L938F’s performance matched up with the top-of-the-line wheel loaders. On top of that, its size is perfect and suits our needs. It was an easy decision to make.”
Anderson County has been using the L938F between 20 and 40 hours a week, and Chapin said the SDLG loader has performed well, and its operators have found the loader easy to operate.
“The L938F is a good fit for us because it’s the perfect size, but it’s still strong enough to break apart material and load our trucks quickly,” he said. “It maneuvers well, all while maintaining high levels of power. It’s amazing that such a strong and effective machine can be found at this price. The value is unmatched.”
The L938F has an operating weight of 27,560 lbs. It features a Tier 4 Final Deutz engine with 171 hp and 627 lb.ft of torque. It comes with a 12-month, 2,000-hour warranty.
Chapin was introduced to SDLG’s wheel loaders through Dallas-based ROMCO Equipment (ROMCO). Steve Breeden, account manager for ROMCO, suggested the L938F based on the county administration’s budget concerns, which ultimately led to the purchase.
“For municipal customers who may be considering SDLG’s products, I highly recommend renting one or scheduling a product demo to see for yourself,” he said. “The L938F is a good fit for us because it’s the perfect size, but still strong enough to break apart material and load our trucks quickly. It maneuvers well, all while maintaining high levels of power. It’s amazing that such a strong and effective machine can be found at this price. The value is unmatched.”
XCMG Concrete Machinery Helps Build CBD Project in Egypt
The New Capital CBD project in Egypt is built by CSCEC. The signing ceremony was attended by the Chinese President Mr. Xi Jinping and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al Sisi. Representing the friendship between the two peoples, it is the largest single project contracted by the Chinese company in Egypt.Days ago, the concrete-producing equipment developed and manufactured by XCMG was put into use in the New Capital CBD project in Egypt. The customized unit adopts many leading technologies in the industry, including the precision measurement technologies, intelligent reliable control technologies and advanced mixing technology from Schwing of Germany.On April 27 this year, the ceremony of shipping the first batch equipment for the project was held in XCMG production facility of concrete machinery. In the process of project building, the XCMG project team has overcome the hot climate in desert. In just one month, it finalized all the construction work in very high standard and quality.
Behind the brilliant achievements is the never-ending hard work of XCMG people.
