SDLG Crowns Winners Of First Skills Competition In Asia



After six months of intense trials across Asia, SDLG has crowned the three winners of its first competition on machine service skills in the region. The final winners were Selezner Alexey from Russia in the grader category, Fajar Febriyanto from Indonesia in the mini excavator category, and Trinh Van Viet from Vietnam in the parts repair category.

The Service Skills Competition tested technicians in three categories: graders, mini excavators and parts repair. The competition kicked off in July with more than 520 participating in trials at 39 dealerships across six countries, which included Russia, India, Indonesia, Philippines, Bangladesh and Vietnam. The top candidates from each country were then invited to the Asia finals in Linyi, China.

Over two weeks in September, the final 19 competitors received additional training before they faced off in the finals to showcase their diagnostic and problem-solving skills. Competitors in the three categories were required to identify and repair issues on the motor grader, mini hydraulic excavator, engine and gearbox, respectively.
