L 580 LogHandler XPower
At LIGNA, Hannover, Liebherr showcases the refined but still robust L 580 LogHandler XPower for efficient log handling. The relaunch is based on the effective XPower concept of the Liebherr large wheel loader. The new XPower generation machine stands out thanks to its wide range of innovative features and the investment made into its sturdiness. Thanks to a special lift arm with major reinforcements, the L 580 LogHandler XPower can cover large working areas with a maximum reach of almost four metres. Productivity is increased by optimised timber grabs that can be adjusted in size for individual applications.
The L 580 LogHandler XPower boasts high levels of performance and productivity wherever companies need to handle and transport large volumes of logs and tree trunks, making locations such as cellulose, paper, cardboard or packaging plants ideal areas of application. The L 580 LogHandler XPower really comes into its own when covering transport routes requiring flexibility or transporting logs over longer distances at higher speeds.
A powerful 250 kW / 340 HP diesel engine with emission stage IV / Tier 4f is the largest exhibit on display. The standard version of the L 580 LogHandler XPower can carry a maximum payload of 8,730kg, with an operating weight of 36,650kg. With its optimised combi timber gripper with hold-down plate, L 580 LogHandler XPower can grab up to 3.6m³ of wood. Additional features showcased are the rear collision guards and gripper monitoring system.
