Liebherr Expands Presence
Liebherr displayed three of its top-line products at the World of Concrete trade show, held in Las Vegas January 22-25, 2008. The company showcased its L 528 and L 550 wheel loaders, and A 900C Litronic wheeled excavator. This year's exhibit space was more than twice the size of last year's, showing Liebherr's continued dedication and commitment to the American market.
When it comes to economy, conventional wheel loaders are no match for Liebherr's L 528 and L 550 wheel loaders. The Liebherr driveline combined with low operating weight and high tipping load results in up to 25% less fuel consumption than conventionally-driven wheel loaders.
The Liebherr wheel loaders are not only fuel efficient but comfortable. The ultra-modern cab design allows the operator to achieve better performance and productivity. The displays, controls and driver's seat are carefully coordinated to form a perfect ergonomic unit.
And no one can beat Liebherr's performance. The combination of the Liebherr hydrostatic driveline and the unique position of the diesel engine allows for higher tipping loads at low operating weight. This leads to significantly higher productivity with no need for unnecessary counterweight.
The large Liebherr wheel loaders are equipped with the 2plus2 gearbox, so tractive force and speed are automatically adjusted to the requirements without the driver having to shift.
The A 900C is the latest offering from the world's largest manufacturer of wheeled excavators. Weighing in at 18 000 kg, the machine is powered by a purpose-built Liebherr D-924 Tier III compliant diesel engine producing 118 hp at 1800 rpm. Liebherr designed electronics precisely control all engine functions to optimize performance and efficiency and 4 operating modes allow the operator to match engine and hydraulic output to achieve maximum production and efficiency.
The optional Liebherr quick coupler can also automatically make the hydraulic connections from tool to machine, allowing the operator to change hydraulic tools without ever leaving the comfort of the cab.
