Press releases | 04/19/2018 Liebherr showcases specialist machines at IFAT 2018 in Munich

  • Liebherr will be located at stand 151/250 in hall C5 at this year’s IFAT
  • Liebherr to showcase specialist machines for the waste management and recycling industries
  • Machines on display include the LH 22 M Industry Litronic, LH 30 M Industry Litronic and L 556 XPower wheel loader

From 14th to 18th May, Liebherr will have a 300 m² stand at IFAT 2018, the world's leading trade fair for water, sewage, waste and raw materials management, which takes place in Munich. In hall C5 at stand 151/250, Liebherr will showcase specialist machines for the recycling industry and waste management. In addition to the two material handlers, the LH 22 M Industry Litronic and LH 30 M Industry Litronic, the L 556 XPower wheel loader from the successful XPower generation will also be on show.

LH 22 M Industry Litronic mobile material handler

With the LH 22 M Industry Litronic mobile material handler, Liebherr will be presenting the smallest example of its material handlers at IFAT 2018. The LH 22 M Industry is ideal for applications in the recycling industry. Efficiency and productivity were at the fore during the development of this high-performance machine with its compact dimensions. The Liebherr diesel engine, which complies with Stage IV / Tier 4f exhaust emission standards, already delivers 105 kW / 143 HP at 1,800 min-1. The combination of higher engine power and a higher pump delivery volume guarantees maximum acceleration and the highest level of speed in the working movements.

The large radiator with large meshes ensures optimum cooling performance even when the machine is being used in recycling processes that generate high volumes of dust. For quick and easy cleaning, the closely meshed safety guard can be pulled out and the fan can be removed.

LH 30 M Industry Litronic mobile material handler

With the LH 30 M Industry Litronic mobile material handler, Liebherr will be showcasing a high-performance all-rounder at this year’s IFAT. It impresses with its versatility across different operations, for example in scrap handling or for sorting work in the recycling sector.

The LH 30 M combines intelligent electronics with optimally-adapted hydraulics and ensures precise and finely controlled work with movements that are simultaneously both fast and powerful. The cleverly engineered machine control system ensures optimum adaptation of the hydraulics to each specific operation. Speed and strength are always there where they are needed.

The Liebherr material handler’s operator's cab offers the best conditions for healthy and productive work with high levels of concentration. It has been further developed in terms of ergonomics, operating comfort and functionality and offers the operator exceptional comfort thanks to new standard equipment.

Liebherr L 556 XPower® wheel loader

At this year's IFAT, Liebherr will also be showcasing one of its successful XPower® generation of wheel loaders: the L 556 XPower®. XPower® is an innovative machine concept integral to Liebherr’s range of large wheel loaders and sets new standards in terms of fuel efficiency, performance, robustness and comfort.

XPower® wheel loaders meet the needs of companies from a range of industries. One important field of application is the recycling industry, for example, where operators place particularly high demands on the machine. With investments focused on the robustness and durability of the axles and other components, such as the hydraulic cylinders, Liebherr ensures the consistently high performance and reliability of the XPower® wheel loaders.
