Available as of October, the F-series, sideshift backhoe loader is half a tonne lighter than its predecessor, the B877, and features a new engine, greater cab space and enhanced cooling capacity, as well as state-of-the-art loader linkage and other improvements.

“SDLG backhoe loaders always receive a great deal of interest in the Middle East and Africa, and for a good reason; they are extremely versatile and efficient machines. Whether you’re operating the loader or the excavator, the new B877F has the power and manoeuvrability to handle almost any job. Those looking for a high-performing, reliable, easily operable and cost-effective backhoe loader need to look no further than SDLG.”

What’s more, the kinematics have been improved. It is now easier to anchor the machine when using the excavator bucket. It also offers better control of the excavator arm when repositioning, better stability and more efficient excavating. The new model also features a 55-degree steering angle, providing excellent manoeuvrability that is particularly advantageous when working in confined areas.

“Customers can purchase the B877F with either a multi-purpose or general-purpose loader bucket, together with an extendable or standard arm,” says Sjöstrand. “There is also a wide range of attachments to choose from, such as various sizes of excavator buckets and flip over forks. The B877F can be equipped with additional hydraulics if needed.”

Inside the machine, one of the biggest changes comes in the form of a new engine. The B877F is fitted with a 70 kW Yuchai, manufactured by Guangxi Yuchai Machinery Group Co., Ltd. The Yuchai features the same power as the machine’s previous engine, but it offers much higher torque. The new engine now supplies the hydraulic system with a constant flow, providing the operator with a reliable power supply for extended durations.
