Liebherr to display range of material handlers, loaders and excavators at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2017

During Conexpo Con/Agg 2017, from March 7-11, 2017, Liebherr will present more than 25 pieces of equipment from the company's extensive Material Handling, Earthmoving and Construction Equipment product ranges. The Liebherr outdoor booth will be located at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Gold lot G4637, covering 50,000 ft2, and will provide room for hydraulic excavators, wheel loaders, material handlers, along with the company's crawler loaders and dozers, deep foundation equipment, tower cranes, mobile and crawler cranes as well as a concrete pump. Liebherr’s product range of components for the mechanical, hydraulic and electric drive systems will also be on display in the south hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center, Booth# S84230.

Some of the Liebherr's equipment models that will be on display at Conexpo Con/Agg in March, 2017, which have application in the recycling and waste management industry include:

XPower wheel loaders with an innovative power-split driveline concept

XPower® is an integrated, innovative machine concept for the large series of wheel loaders with operating weight from 39,020 lbs. – 71,870 lbs. (L550-L586). The new concept sets new standards in terms of fuel efficiency, performance, robust design and comfort. The core of the XPower® is the Tier 4 Final/Euro Stage IV power-split driveline installed as standard. It combines hydrostatic drive, which is ideal for short loading cycles and mechanical drive for long distances and when driving on slopes. The combination of these two drive types in a single wheel loader ensures maximum efficiency and outstanding fuel savings in multiple applications. Liebherr XPower® wheel loaders deliver standard power-split transmission and 30 percent fuel savings.

LH40M and LH22 handlers – Top performers in the material handling industry

The LH 40 M features an Energy Recovery Cylinder (ERC) that reduces fuel consumption by up to 30%. It promotes faster cycles and greater handling capacity. The LH40 is powered by a Tier 4 Final/Stage IV engine developed and manufactured by Liebherr with an output of 208 HP (155 kW) at 1,800 rpm (SAE J1349). Multiple options and configurations are available to provide the best solution for every application; from undercarriages to cab options to attachments. Also on display will be the LH 22 M Handler. This machine is powered by a 4-cylinder Liebherr engine with 134 HP (100kW) at 1800 rpm and has an operating weight of 50,500 lbs. Both handlers come equipped with LiDAT; Liebherr’s own comprehensive machine management system for the secure, reliable transmission and analysis of machine data. Based on an ultra-modern communication technology, LiDAT supplies the information needed for machine location and operation, and thus permits efficient remote control of management, task planning and fleet monitoring.

Higher performance, less fuel consumption: Liebherr presents its new A 918 Litronic

Remarkable high lift capacities, top digging performance and excellent travel of the A 918 excavator are truly impressive, while at the same time fuel consumption is substantially reduced. With an operating weight between 38,800 and 43,600 lbs and an engine output of 161 HP (120 kW) the A 918 is the ideal machine for classic earthmoving, road construction or water infrastructure and pipeline works. The new Liebherr cab with a standard air-suspension heated driver’s seat and automatic air-conditioning ensures a pleasant atmosphere, offering machine operators with the best working conditions to fully focus on the actual task and be productive all day. The A918 excavator design promotes short servicing times, thus minimizing maintenance costs due to the time it saves. All maintenance points are easily accessible from the ground and easy to reach due to the large, wide-opening service doors.

Liebherr introduces its new R 920 Compact Litronic crawler excavator to the North American Market

The new Liebherr R 920 Compact crawler excavator has an operating weight between 42,000 and 47,000 lbs. It is powered by a Tier 4 Final/Stage IV engine with 136 HP (100 kW) and has a SCR system with urea injection and oxidation catalyst. The particulate filters are optionally available. The R 920 Compact combines the properties of a standard crawler excavator, such as high performance and versatility of a compact machine. With a short tail swing of only 6’ radius, the machine can be operated effectively on construction sites where space is limited. The dimensions of the R 920 Compact ensure unrestricted movement around the jobsite and easy transportation from one site to another.

Liebherr R 960 high-reach demolition excavator

Built and designed with all Liebherr components from the high-reach attachments to the demolition control software and electronics, the R 960 high reach demolition excavator is custom-designed to work together. The R 960 features the Liebherr Demolition Control (LDC). This unique safety system won an innovation award at Intermat. The LDC provides operators with precise information on positioning of the demolition tool while safeguarding the stability of the excavator. The position of the tool is displayed in real-time on a touchscreen display along with the tilt angle of the machine. The new system minimizes the probability of human errors that could impair the stability of the machine.

Liebherr components on display

Liebherr’s Components division presents various innovative components from the mechanical, hydraulic and electric drive systems areas in the South Hall 4, Booth #S84230. One of the main highlights is the hydraulic cylinder series-production range for pressures of up to 350 bar, which will be presented for the first time to the American market. Specifically designed for dynamic loads, this series of double-acting differential cylinders is suitable for mobile as well as in industrial environments in the pressure range of up to 350 bar, optionally up to 380 bar. In general, 20 different piston diameters between 3.94 to 8.66 inches (100 to 220 mm) can be combined with two piston rod diameters and strokes of up to 90.55 inches (2,300 mm) can be achieved.

On the Components' exhibition stand, visitors will also find the newly developed LH30VO axial piston pump of swash plate design. The medium pressure pump complements the existing product portfolio in the range of 280 bar nominal pressure and is suited for use in mobile machinery. The pump for all mobile applications with open circulation has a specific delivery rate of 45 cm³ per rotation and is already available with two of the most common controls.

Further new developments at the exhibition are the electric travel drives FAT 400 and FAT 550 with permanent magnet technology, which follow the FAT 325 launched in 2015. With this product range Liebherr adds electric versions to its previously hydraulically operated travel drives and responds, on the one hand, to the increasing demand for electrically powered crawler-tracked vehicles and, on the other, meets the demand for environmentally friendly technologies. The solution ensures high power density from an extremely compact design. The latter enables tailor-made placement of the drivetrain in the confined space conditions of the machine. A reduced number of spare parts, in turn, provide for a long service life. With the IP67 protection and durable sealing systems, the entire Liebherr drive is not only protected from environmental influences, such as dust and water in normal operation, but is optimally adapted to specific environmental conditions.

Latest diesel engines on display

Liebherr will also be presenting the newest developments in the diesel engines segment. The exhibited D956 A7 in-line engine represents one member of the new engine family by Liebherr and sets forth the development strategy based on modularity, i.e. exhaust after treatment and standardized parts and options. This state-of-the-art in-line engine has been developed to fulfil the current and future requirements set by customers and emission regulations.
