The new Stage IIIB / Tier 4i Wheel Loader L 542 is right in the lead when it comes to economy and environmental friendliness. It uses up to 25% less fuel than comparable machines from other manufacturers, under the same operating conditions. Up to 8% of this fuel advantage is achieved thanks to the new “Liebherr Power Efficiency” (LPE) system. By intelligent management of the individual units, LPE reduces both fuel consumption and component wear, with the engine management under pro-active control and with all the engine map characteristics and parameters being taken into account. LPE recognizes the performance profile required by the operator, and puts it into action with maximum performance output, in the most efficient way possible. And thanks to the tried and trusted Liebherr travel drive, tyre wear is, as usual, reduced by up to 25%, and the service brake is practically free of wear altogether. Increased productivity thanks to first-class comfort and convenience: The cab is particularly spacious and comfortable. All the operating elements are ergonomically perfectly matched to one another, while the hydraulic cab bearing system substantially reduces vibrations and noise burden in the interior of the cab.

Features & Benefits


Compared to conventional transmission systems, the hydrostatic driveline with Liebherr Power Efficiency achieves a reduction in fuel consumption for wheel loaders of up to 25%. This reduces operating costs and environmental pollution.


Compared to conventionally driven wheel loaders, the operating weight is much lower, the tipping load is higher, and more material can be moved each operating hour.


All the materials used in Liebherr wheel loaders have passed long-term tests to ensure that they match up to Liebherr’s exacting standards in even the toughest conditions.


The ultra-modern cab design with advanced ergonomics, continuously variable Liebherr driveline for uninterrupted tractive force, optimum weight distribution and easy service access thanks to unique engine installation position lead to overall comfort.
