In low temperatures, the oil gets cold and thicker, and makes it very difficult to start the engine which reduce productivity. Start cold also increase the component wearing, reduce the lifetime of components and generate frequent downtime.
Arctic package offers an efficient preheating system for the engine, transmission, gear box, battery, as well as hydraulic and brake oils.
Sandvik TH430 and TH545i arctic package includes all the components of the Cold Climate Package (See details on the Safety and Environmental Improvement section of this catalogue) plus the following additional components: engine block heater, gearbox heating pads, hydraulic oil heater and charge air pre-heater. On TH551i and TH663, cabin heater, window defroster and side mirrors defroster are standard features, so the arctic package option includes only engine block heater, gearbox heating pads, hydraulic oil heater, charge air pre-heater brake oil heater, drop box heating pads and up box heating pads. The heater is available as 120 V and as 230 V.
Preheating components allows faster start and more efficient operations, and decreases downtime. Less component wear and tear, less breakdowns.
