Sandvik is introducing the AutoMine Toro LH514iE loader, a revamped version of the Sandvik LH514E with new updates to enhance safety and productivity.

Toro LH514iE is the latest automated cable-electric loader designed with AutoMine integrated capabilities, offering customers flexibility to upgrade from manual to autonomous operations at any time in the equipment’s lifespan.

Unlike battery electric vehicles that require battery swapping or quick-charging, or diesel equipment that needs refuelling, as long as the Toro LH614iE loader is plugged into the mine electric grid, it’s able to undertake productive work. The cable has an operating range of up to 330m.

Toro LH514iE can help improve working conditions underground for operators and other mine personnel. In addition to not producing diesel emissions, the electric motor contributes to improved working conditions by emitting lower noise, vibration and heat levels.

Sandvik has been delivering electric mining loaders for more than 35 years with the Toro LH514iE loader the latest solution for electrifying and automating underground loading.
