With the LH 30 M material handler, Liebherr is presenting a powerful all-round talent at the Intermat 2015 trade fair. The LH 30 is available with either a wheeled or crawler undercarriage. The LH 30 M material handler impresses by its versatility in various types of application, such as scrap handling or sorting operations.

The machine on show at the Intermat 2015 is designed for challenging recycling tasks. The configuration includes a straight industrial monoblock boom measuring 7.3 m in length and an industrial stick measuring 5.5 m in length. The hydraulic quick coupler with the Liebherr multi-coupling system as well as a Liebherr GM 65-type five tine grab with semi-closed tines and a capacity of 0.6 m³ are among the items displayed at the trade fair. Other elements of the machine configuration are the hydraulic cab elevation as well as the 4-point outrigger with individual control. The reversible fan and the large-mesh radiator provide a reliable, sealed unit in the engine compartment for machine operation in environments with heavy dust.

Performance redefined

The diesel engine of the Liebherr LH 30 M material handler is a 4-cylinder inline engine from Liebherr, which complies with emissions standard IV / Tier 4f. Compared with the previous model, it returns 140 kW / 190 HP as opposed to 129 kW / 175 HP.

The increase in engine output means that the system has more torque available for more powerful movements. Furthermore, load peaks are compensated cleverly, meaning maximum torque is available at all times for maximum handling capacity. In combination with the greater pump delivery volume and the closed slewing circuit, maximum acceleration and the highest level of speed in the working movements are guaranteed.

The new LH 30 M combines intelligent electronics with sensitive hydraulics and ensures precise and finely-controlled work with fast and powerful movements at the same time. The cleverly conceived machine control guarantees optimal adaptation of the hydraulics to the respective use. Speed and power are available whenever they are needed.
