Press releases | 02/03/2016 Liebherr’s L538 Wheel Loader to be featured at the 2016 World of Concrete trade show

  • Highly versatile machine
  • Increased productivity with Liebherr Electronics
  • High fuel economy

Liebherr Construction Equipment Co., invites World of Concrete participants to get an up close look at the new L538 Wheel loader at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Central Hall, Booth # C6212.

The L 538 on display features a Z-bar linkage for standard operations, achieves a tipping load straight of 22,485lb (10,199kg) at an operating weight of 29,000lb (13,154kg) and is driven by a 154HP (l) / 115kW. This loader is equipped with a 3.14yd³ (2.40m³) quick hitch re-handling bucket with bolt on cutting edge.

Highly versatile machine

The L538 wheel loader belongs to the new generation of mid-size range loaders, most commonly referred as utility size. These size loaders are highly versatile machines suitable for a multitude of applications. They can be used in a traditional capacity, to stockpile or move earth/materials, or can be used to handle all types of construction material through the use different attachments.

Increased productivity with Liebherr Electronics

The implementation of energy efficiency technologies such as the hydrostatic drive combined with the Liebherr Power Efficiency system (LPE), optimizes the interaction between drive components. This system is able to adjust the performance and power for every working situation, enhancing the efficiency of the wheel loader and providing additional fuel savings up to 25%.

High Fuel Economy

An additional contributing factor to fuel economy is the configuration of the machine and the positioning of its engine. The engine is used as natural counterweight. The center point of gravity of the drive line components is behind the rear axle to avoid unnecessary additional counterweight. Less operating weight has to be carried around, therefore, less horse power is required. Subsequently, less fuel is consumed.
