At Conexpo 2017, Liebherr is exhibiting the wheel loader L 550, an example of its expanding wheel loader product range out of the production in Dalian, P. R. China. Due to the hydrostatic driveline, the L 550 is – like all Liebherr wheel loaders – very fuel efficient, consuming up to 25 percent less fuel compared with conventional wheel loaders under the same conditions. The optimum weight distribution of the machine increases the productivity at work, because larger buckets can be used to handle more material with each loading cycle.
The Liebherr wheel loader L 550 on display is powered by a 147 kW / 200 HP diesel engine. Its exhaust emissions are below the limits in Stage II / Tier 2. The optimum weight distribution combined with a wide range of attachments for different applications supports businesses to benefit from increased productivity during daily operation. Thus especially by using larger buckets compared to other type of wheel loaders in the same class.

China, in close cooperation with the wheel loader competence centre in Bischofshofen, Austria. Liebherr’s wheel loaders for the Chinese market are high-performing machines: Designed according to the company’s high quality standards, Liebherr wheel loaders operate reliably – even in the toughest conditions.
