A month after announcing the first delivery of a Tembo 4×4 electric light vehicle to India, GHH says it has now shipped the first LF-7 LHD to the country.
The vehicle was shown at the Mining Expo in Kolkata, in April, with GHH then arranging the onward transport to the unnamed launch customer, who also ordered further machines from the OEM.
The previously delivered Tembo 4×4 ELV, which went to Hindustan Zinc, is an electric multi-purpose light duty vehicle based on the Toyota Land Cruiser and Hilux models. It is available in many versions ranging from a pickup truck to a passenger transporter (10 seats). GHH is a regional distributor of the vehicle.
According to GHH, the LF-7 currently offers the largest bucket, most powerful engine and best climb performance in its class.
It carries 7 tonnes or 3.6 cu.m, is 8.9-m long in driving position, 2.24 m-wide at the bucket and 2.2-m high at the cab when fully loaded. This makes the LF-7 suitable for narrow-vein operations, as well. The loader is powered by a 164 kW Cummins diesel engine and complies with Tier 3/4 and EU Stage V emissions standards, GHH says.
Maintenance requirements are eased with the addition of GHH InSiTE software, which allows vehicle data to be called upon in real time and evaluated.
