The line-up from Liebherr at the Maskinmässan trade fair in Stockholm comprises several premiers to the Swedish market. Some earthmoving and material handling machines have just been launched at the Bauma trade fair, which took place in Munich some weeks ago. Those include e.g. all Liebherr wheel loaders at Maskinmässan with representatives of the new mid-size and new large wheel loader series. Furthermore, Liebherr exhibits its retrofitted stage IV excavators, e.g. the mobile excavator A 918 Compact or the crawler excavator R 936. And also the smallest crawler tractor from Liebherr, the brand-new PR 716, is on show in Stockholm.
On its stand at Maskinmässan exhibition, Liebherr not only presents earthmoving and material handling machines but also lifting equipment. The mobile cranes on show stand for innovative crane concepts which ensure safe and efficient operation.
Wheel Loader L 580 XPower®: greatest level of efficiency in all applications
In Stockholm, Liebherr presents its latest XPower® large wheel loaders complying with emission standards Stage IV / Tier 4f. With the XPower® concept, Liebherr has developed a new wheel loader generation based on innovative technological and design solutions that combine robustness, performance strength, fuel efficiency and comfort in one machine.
Liebherr is installing the power-split XPower® driveline as standard in its large wheel loader series. This ensures power and efficiency in the new Liebherr large wheel loaders. The XPower® power-split transmission performs the same function as the traditional power-split transmission but with a greater level of efficiency. It combines two types of drive: the hydrostatic drive, the most efficient drive in short loading cycles, and the mechanical drive for long distances and driving up gradients. Together, the two paths always transfer 100 per cent of the diesel engine power and only the mix ratio of the two paths changes.
With its innovative and efficient drive concepts, Liebherr has achieved a high level of efficiency in all areas where wheel loaders are used. The proven Liebherr-Power-Efficiency system (LPE) plays a key role in this. Over a test and development phase lasting several years, Liebherr worked continually to perfect the adaptation of all drive-train components. The result is that XPower® wheel loaders reduce fuel consumption by up to 30 per cent enabling operators to reduce their operating costs.
