L&T Construction Equipment Limited, a subsidiary of Larsen & Toubro has dispatched the first batch of 25 special variant Wheel Loaders, the company said in a statement on Thursday. 

The equipment units are suitable for operation in harsh terrains such as high altitudes and extreme weather conditions to the Border Roads Organisation (BRO).
