Liebherr LH 30 M Material Handler a highly versatile “all-rounder”

Liebherr recently added the LH 30 M to its new LH (Liebherr Handler) range of material handling machines. It is a direct successor to the A 924 C and the company says is designed as a classic, highly versatile “all-rounder.” Units are ideal for a range of applications including loading trucks or rail wagons, supplying scrap to metal shears and performing sorting work or frequently occurring material movement work.

The LH 30 M is powered by a four-cylinder IIIB-generation Liebherr diesel engine with a particulate filter for exhaust emission post-treatment. With a displacement of more than 7 litres and a power output of 129 kW (175 hp) available at an engine speed of 1,800 rpm, this new handler is engineered to make highly efficient use of fuel at low engine speeds.

The LH 30 M uses Liebherr components, including the diesel engine, hydraulic pumps, the travel motor, the slewing gear drive, the slewing ring and various hydraulic jacks and rams. Other key features include: a continuously variable cab height using a hydraulic elevating mechanism; excellent stability and visibility; a range of safety features; and a large, ergonomic cab.

An extensive range of working equipment and attachments are available from Liebherr, including bulk material and orange-peel grabs, or an electromagnet with power supply system can be supplied for ferrous materials handling.
