New Delhi: Tata Hitachi on Friday launched TL340H Prime, its new CEV-4 (BS4) compliant wheel loader. The next generation wheel loader from the company promises reliability, low cost of operation and higher profits, the company said in a release.
This latest offering helps in reducing fuel consumption by as much as 20% on the back of several factors, claims the company. It is based on Tata Hitachi’s in-house Hydrostatic technology, which uses hydraulic flow for forward and reverse movements. This is similar to the mechanism used in excavators, thereby eliminating the need for transmission. Further, a Variable Displacement pump optimises hydraulic oil flow based on the load. It is powered by a fuel efficient CEV-4 compliant four-cylinder Cummins engine.
In terms of productivity and loading efficiency, TL340H Prime offers an optimal dump height and reach, Tata Hitachi said. This helps in loading high-capacity trucks as well as loading material in the centre of the truck for better spread. The machine also comes equipped with an array of bucket options to handle a variety of material such as coal, limestone, iron ore and blue metal, among others.
“TL340H Prime comes with the promise of reliability, low cost of operation and higher profits, thereby offering complete peace of mind to the customer. And this machine is also more environmentally friendly by virtue of being CEV-4 compliant,” Sandeep Singh, managing director, Tata Hitachi, said.
TL340H Prime comes with an ergonomically designed operator’s cabin which is equipped with a new multicoloured digital cluster that displays a host of machine information. The cabin is also equipped with a new bucket type suspension seat which ensures that the operator is more productive and is able to operate the machine without any fatigue.
Equipped with standard front guard and compliant with Level-1 FOPS, the cabin is built to enhance operator safety. In addition, it features the hydraulic braking feature that improves the machine’s brake response. TL340H Prime equipped with Tata Hitachi’s telematics system, InSite, that provides live data on machine location, HMR, fuel level and machine utilisation.
