An outer turning radius of 7348 mm and an inner turning radius of 3571 mm, with a fold angle of ± 44 °, guarantee increased maneuverability during work.
The LHD can be equipped with a choice of water-cooled diesel engines of the Tier 3, Tier 4 and Stage V classes from Volvo. All of them are equipped with the SCR emission control system, which is especially important for underground work. The maximum available power is 285 kW / 1900 rpm, the capacity of the gas tank is 410 liters. The maximum speed of the LF-14 is 26.3 km / h, the maximum tractive effort is 356 Kn, and the maximum allowable ascent / descent angle is 25%.
The rugged frame and design features of the GHH Group machines ensure the lowest operating costs. With a hydraulic system operating pressure of 280 bar with two lift cylinders and one tilt cylinder, boom lift takes 7 seconds, lower time 4.2 seconds and bucket tilt time 2.2 seconds. Ride control, weighing system and bucket shake function ensure timely and safe material delivery. The Z-bar of the bucket control system is optimized for efficient loading of the truck.
The GHH Group pays special attention to creating comfortable conditions for the operator.

In addition, it has increased legroom and space for personal protective equipment and other equipment. Together, all this provides the operator with the most comfortable and safe working conditions.
