Moving forward with SEM680D

SEM’s latest product to come to market is the SEM680D wheel loader. It’s designed to meet a growing demand for larger wheel loaders that can move more material in less time.

The machine measures 9.166m × 3.220m × 3.566m, has a rated load of eight tonnes and a 3.550 m wheel base. Customers can choose a bucket capacity ranging from 4 m³ to 7.2 m³ to meet their specific requirements.

The company worked closely with Perkins Engines to power the machine, and ensure it would exceed customers’ expectations on performance, durability, low vibration and noise.

Powered by a 13 litre Perkins 2206D engine, the SEM680D is fully compliant with China Stage III emission standards. It has a rated output of 232 kW at 1,800 rpm, while its mechanically operated unit fuel injector with electronic control enhances reliability and durability. Specially designed engine shock absorbers reduce vibration and noise.

With fuel consumption optimised to the operating cycles of the machine, customers also enjoy a lifetime of low running costs.

Other benefits include the in-built robustness that comes from key components, such as the rocker arm and lift arm, being made of high-strength steel, and a cab designed to deliver an exceptional field of vision and comfort.

Overall, the SEM680D is a triumph of design and technology that gives you the power, features and performance to help you build a strong foundation for future success.
