The new range of oils and lubricants from SDLG are specially designed for its range of construction machines to protect them against wear and tear. India is the first market outside China to offer customers the range of engine, hydraulic and transmission oils and SDLG will formally introduce them at bC India.
Following the launch of SDLG wheel loaders and road machinery in India in 2010, its manufacturer Shandong Lingong Machinery Co. Ltd. (known as Lingong) has identified the need for trusted maintenance products to support its growing machine population.
B Sridhar, Head – India, SDLG, says, “We have over 500 SDLG machines in action on job sites across India and at SDLG we are strengthening our aftermarket support to give customers the best possible service. Our customers are looking for a brand of lubricants they can trust to help maintain their machine performance. This launch will offer them a complete range of engine, hydraulic and transmission oils that are designed especially for SDLG machines. All SDLG lubricants are certified by us to give complete peace of mind.”At this year’s bC India , India will become the first market outside of China to distribute SDLG’s range of oils and lubricants. The new products feature SDLG’s distinctive grey colouring on their packaging to identify them as official support products for the company’s range of equipment.
“bC India is one of the market’s most important trade shows, and I cannot think of a better place to launch these new aftermarket products and show our Indian customers how dedicated we are to offer excellent aftermarket support,” adds Mr Sridhar.There are three products making up the SDLG oil and lubricants range, and all will be shown at bC India. First is the SDLG engine oil which is blended with hydro-cracked base oils to deliver higher levels of engine cleanliness, which in turn leads to longer engine life, better output efficiency and lower maintenance costs. Second is the SDLG hydraulic oil, which is also made from hydro-cracked base oils and which offers better thermal stability to protect components from oxidation and sludge build up as they are exposed to the higher temperatures caused by working operations. Finally, there is the SDLG gear oil, which is a lubricant to be used with a variety of transmission units. It offers long-term stable viscosity, which contributes to lower noise and offers better wear protection, even in the most demanding applications.
In India, Lingong currently distributes its range of SDLG wheel loaders, including the 3-tonne LG936L and LG938L, the 5-tonne LG958L and the 7-tonne LG979 as well as its G9190 motor grader, through a nationwide network of experienced construction equipment dealers.
