New release from SDLG

SDGL releases new G9290 motor grader

The newly released G9290 is the first motor grader from SDLG in the heavy-duty size class, its strength and capacity making it ideal for mining haul road maintenance, infrastructure projects, road construction, highways and airports.


The design of the new G9290 adds to the smaller models – the G9138, G9190 (VHP) and G9220 (VHP). However, being a member of the Volvo Group since 2007, the new G9290 comes with a Volvo-supplied engine and Volvo-designed transmission.

The SD130B Stage III diesel engine with electronically controlled fuel injection system, offers high torque at low revs from a 211 kW output with Variable Horse Power (VHP) technology as standard. Meanwhile, the HTE840S transmission has 8-speed forward gears and 4-speed reverse gears all with automatic shifting.

The heavy-duty chain-driven tandem features a no-spin differential lock on the rear axle and heavy-duty bearings, designed to deliver quality traction and reliability. The company says the circle turn, exclusive to SDLG, uses twin-gear hydraulic cylinders to provide instant, high-output torque, enabling moldboard rotation under heavy loads, meaning there is no need to stop, reverse and change moldboard angle.


The moldboard is kept level at all times by the 16° oscillation on the heavy-duty front axle, 18° wheel leaning and +/- 15° oscillation on the rear tandem. The hydraulic lock bar features seven positions to enable blade positioning from a 90° vertical position on both sides of the grader to a 21° downward ditch cleaning angle.

The frame comes factory-ready to accept all types of attachments with no need to weld or cut to fit attachments, like a scarifier or a ripper to the machine. The front frame is engineered to be strong enough to accommodate the front attachment, the moldboard and the circle turn, while still providing optimal visibility for the operator.
