New Vibrator LV 20 for Piling Rigs

Heat Exchanger for Vibrators

What protects athletes from injury, extends the service life of construction machinery too - warm up! Essential before competitions, the principle can also be applied to deep foundation machinery. This is the only way to achieve full performance. The heat exchanger for vibrators from Liebherr uses exactly this principle. The result, the service life of the vibrator is extended considerably.


New Assistance System for Piling Rigs

Obstacle Recognition

The innovative assistance system from Liebherr for piling and drillings rigs enables the timely recognition of rocks, tree stumps or other obstacles which can damage the vibrator. Up to now the operator was virtually “blind” and dependent on considerable experience. The obstacle recognition makes a tremendous difference bringing advantages for both man and machine.

Lifting Job in Poland

LR 1300 in the Tatra Mountains, Poland

In 2010 it was destroyed by a flood. Now the bridge over the River Biała in Jankowa-Lipniczka, Poland is being rebuilt with the aid of a Liebherr LR 1300, painted in the customer’s colours of blue and white. Split into six bridge sections, material with a total weight of 116 t was installed 5 m above the river. The parts were delivered by truck from Skoczów, Silesia, pre-assembled on site, and then lifted and positioned by the LR crawler crane. The work should be completed by our customer IMB in December this year.
