At approximately 18 tonnes operating weight, the LF-7 is powered by a 164 kW Cummings diesel, making it the best in class. It complies with Tier 3, 4 and EU Stage 5 emissions standards. It can cope with gradients of up to 28 percent and to reach speeds of up to 27 km/h.

The LF-7 is also optionally fitted with GHH inSiTE, GHH’s digital analytics solution, where all relevant vehicle data can also be accessed and remotely evaluated. The real value of GHH InSiTE, in comparison with the similar systems on the market, lies not only in ensuring the integrity of the collected and managed data but maximizing the value add of the customized output reports for the customers.The LF-7 is also proximity detection, interface level 9 ready with optional bucket weighing, tyre pressure monitoring systems and radio remote control.
