Less than one year after expanding its range of construction equipment to include SDLG wheel loaders, Canadian distributor Strongco is rolling out the brand to additional locations in the Maritimes. After beginning sales of the units at branches in Alberta, Quebec and Ontario, the company’s branches in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, and Moncton, New Brunswick will join the dealer network.

Stephen George, Strongco’s regional vice president, Atlantic, said the company is having success selling the wheel loaders to a diverse range of customers and that the timing is right to expand the offering to the Atlantic region.

“The value proposition of SDLG wheel loaders makes them attractive to all kinds of companies,” George said. “We’ve seen that people desire a well-made loader with a solid warranty and they don’t necessarily need the features of a higher-priced premium machine. Offering SDLG to customers in the Atlantic region expands our portfolio to include wheel loaders for these types of customers.”

Adding Strongco Atlantic to its dealer network reinforces SDLG’s strategy of partnering with established, experienced dealerships. Strongco Atlantic will sell and provide support for the entire range of SDLG wheel loaders, including the LG938L, a 2.5-cubic yard capacity machine; the LG948L, a 3-cubic yard capacity unit; the LG958L, a 4-cubic yard capacity wheel loader, and the LG959, same specs as the LG958L but with wet disc brakes rather than dry disc. All four units offer a 12-month, 1,500-hour manufacturer’s warranty.
