The joystick steering integrated in the operator’s seat and optionally available for Liebherr L 526 - L 586 XPower wheel loaders is a new, innovative and improved steering system. This means that all working and driving functions of the machine can be controlled with precision and a high degree of sensitivity. The new joystick steering system enables easy and fast manoeuvring. In addition, the new steering system offers high steering and vehicle control for reverse travel.
The new joystick steering solution gives the operator precise information about the wheel loader’s steering direction. This is because the joystick’s orientation corresponds exactly to the current wheel loader articulation angle.
In addition, the intelligent force feedback ensures both smooth and safe steering. This enables precise and safe operation at any speed and in all terrain conditions.
For the Liebherr L 526 – L 586 XPower wheel loaders, the operator’s cab is optionally available without a steering wheel and column, i.e. only with joystick steering. Above all, an operator’s cab without a steering wheel and column offers more space and an improved view of the working attachment and the operating area. In addition, it is not necessary to reach between the steering and control units, which increases safety and comfort. This offers the operator optimum conditions for comfortable and productive working.
