For many decades, SDLG has maintained a renowned reputation for its wheel loaders, which have become synonymous with delivering consistent performance, user-friendly operation, and minimal maintenance. Building on this success, SDLG has now extended its range with mini excavators, setting new standards in the agricultural sector.

“The new models include standard features that are usually optional on other machines, making SDLG extremely good value for money. Coupled with SDLG’s reputation of simplicity, reliability, and ease of operation, SDLG excavators will likely become one of the first choices amongst astute buyers,” explains Andrew Egan, the National Product Manager for SDLG at CJD Equipment.

ER616F: Efficiency at its core

The ER616F, the smallest of the SDLG excavators, is big on performance, versatility, and user-friendliness. This robust and reliable machine is simple to operate. It features an energy-saving, fuel-efficient Kubota engine with a zero-tail swing and high-quality hydraulic components for precise control and increased stability. The ER616F has an operating weight of 1.8 tonnes, an impressive 10kW/13hp, and delivers a powerful excavation force of 15kN, making it adaptable for various applications. Its zero-tail swing design allows it to manoeuvre efficiently in confined spaces, reducing the risk of accidental damage.

Specifically designed for small municipal projects and farming jobs, the ER616F is engineered to be robust and dependable. Its simplicity of operation makes it an ideal machine for seasoned professionals and those new to excavating. With an ergonomically positioned mechanical accelerator, pilot handle and control switch, the ER616F helps operators do the job swiftly and precisely. This machine also has integrated tip-over protection (TOPS) and OPG1, which enhances safety, giving operators peace of mind when working in challenging conditions.

E660FL: Power and precision unleashed

The SDLG E660FL excavator, weighing 6-tonnes, is the largest option among the new SDLG excavator models. Fitted with a highly efficient four-cylinder Yanmar T3 engine and coupled with an energy-saving hydraulic system, the E660FL delivers both power and fuel economy. The load-sensing hydraulic system is engineered to deliver performance and efficiency with a variable piston pump for precise control in various conditions.

The E660FL also features nine work modes and an automatic idle feature, enabling instant power availability as needed and further minimising fuel consumption and noise.

Similar to the other models in the range, the E660FL has been designed to minimise maintenance efforts, with the main components, filter and electrical systems grouped for easy ground-level access. All of the core components, including the engine and hydraulics systems, are sourced from world-renowned manufacturers to ensure the highest reliability.

Recognised for its dependability and operator comfort, this excavator boasts a reduced tail swing, a spacious cab and a compact design. The E660FL cab is designed with industry-leading noise reduction technologies, making it well-suited for operators who spend a long time in the cab. The E660FL is also fitted with ROPS and OPG2 protection, a high-quality digital instrument display, suspension seat and air conditioning, ensuring operators’ ultimate comfort and safety.

Set to be released later this year, the last of the three new SDLG mini excavators in the range is the ER636F. This 3.8-tonne, 20kW/27hp excavator also has a compact design and zero tail-swing with an enclosed, spacious cabin, making it well-suited to urban construction jobs, particularly in tight spaces.
