The new Liebherr L 509 Tele telescopic wheel loader combines the lift height and reach of a regular telescopic loader with the productive material handling capacity of a classic wheel loader, combining the benefits of two machine types in a single product.

Developed on the basis of the Speeder L 509 stereoloader, this new telescopic wheel loader retains the proven stereo steering and can reach a top speed of 38 km/h as standard due to the hydrostatic travel drive.

Instead of classic wheel loader lift arms, the new L 509 Tele has an extendable telescopic lift arm which can lift to a height of 4.8 m with a fork attachment. Thanks to the integrated z-bar kinematics the telescopic lift arm enables the operator to load containers and trucks at great heights or stack loading material. When working with a fork attachment, no manual readjustment is necessary due to the optimized parallel movement during fork operation.

Why invest money in an intelligent MRF (4.0)?

Traditionally, waste management companies have operated using a simple "management of waste" approach to operating a MRF. Throughput targets and continuous operation (minimal downtime) were the main driving forces. The industry has changed however, and the focus moving forward is now on optimizing system performance and reliability, in conjunction with increasing recycling rates and a drive for a "greener" and more sustainable tomorrow.

When considering the addition of, or upgrade to, an "intelligent" MRF, for municipalities or private operators, the main factors should always be the client's (operator) current requirements, and evolving market needs, which include throughput, reliability, output quality, and adaptability. Equally important is a full understanding of what is really expected from any proposed system. Having an engaged and focused mindset for the project with the client from the beginning, will impact and drive the entire design process. This then impacts the overall project result, through to the productive, efficient, ongoing operation of the facility itself.
