Agriculture and forestry

Many highly specialised machines complete diverse tasks in agriculture and forestry. Rising fuel costs and ever stricter emission regulations therefore pose a particular challenge. In order to meet these challenges, Liebherr focuses on increased efficiency and lower consumption in the development of diesel engines and hydraulic components. Machines are exposed to high dynamic loads, especially in forestry, and are often using high pressures. In these conditions, the robust design of our hydraulic components guarantees a long service life.

Information technologies now also play a key role in agriculture and forestry. Liebherr customers benefit from this development. Our electronic solutions guarantee maximum safety and security throughout the process. For example, they enable the monitoring of machines or the linking of intelligent systems, thus ensuring a high level of user friendliness.

Liebherr components in agriculture and forestry

Liebherr's product portfolio includes a wide range of components for use in forestry and agricultural machinery. The interactive graphic shows the use of Liebherr components in this area using the example of a forage harvester.

Sample applications

Possible applications of Liebherr components in agriculture and forestry include machines which cover the entire harvest cycle in agriculture. The product portfolio in forestry ranges from forest harvesting machines through to equipment for the removal of timber.

    Components for agriculture and forestry

    Within the corporate group, Liebherr components have been successfully proving themselves for decades in the diverse machines in building construction and civil engineering. Our customers also benefit greatly from this experience in the development of specific solutions for agricultural technology or forestry.

    Advantages of Liebherr components

    • Powerful
      Our product portfolio of diesel engines for agriculture and forestry ranges from 150kW to 900kW. Liebherr diesel engines therefore also cover machines with a high power requirement.
    • Compact
      Liebherr uses the latest technologies in the area of aftertreatment of exhaust gases. We achieve a very compact design of the complete system - which is particularly important for agriculture and forestry.
    • Fuel-efficient
      Thanks to the innovative SCRonly technology, our engines impress in day-to-day life with low fuel consumption and a low cooling requirement.
    • Low maintenance
      In addition, the long maintenance intervals of over 1,000 operating hours ensure low operating costs. In agriculture this means one to two seasons can easily pass without the need for any maintenance work.
    • Diverse
      With the modular system our hydraulic pumps and motors complete drive tasks in diverse areas.
    • Durable
      Hydraulic motors from Liebherr are characterised by a favourable bearing load and a compact design. This guarantees a particularly long life.
    • Expandable
      Our hydraulic motors can be easily connected to tandem motors. This doubles the power in the converter range.

    Specifically designed products

    Liebherr develops robust hydraulic pumps and motors especially for use in adverse weather conditions. Whether it is for travel drives or for moving equipment - the reliable and longlife pumps and motors from Liebherr come up trumps for every application in agriculture and forestry.

    • LH30VO axial piston pump
      Our newly developed medium-pressure pump LH30VO is ideal for linear movements of equipment. It also impresses in mobile applications as a steering pump or for fan drives in the open circuit, such as those in tractors.
    • DPVG axial piston pump
      Thanks to the use of a hydrostatic cradle bearing, the axial piston pumps for the closed circuit even impress with heavy-duty loads with their high reliability and long service life. The adjustability also enables load-independent stability of the driving mechanism. This configuration makes the pumps particularly attractive for machines with a frequent and dynamic load change, for e.g. a harvester.
    • DMFA 355 axial piston motor
      These motors are available for both open and closed circuits. The swash plate design enables an optional through drive for further axial piston units. An external holding brake or service brake can also be used. Forestry machines often require these brakes for safety reasons.
    • Robust and durable
      Electronic products from Liebherr are designed to survive tough exterior use unscathed – also crucial for agriculture and forestry.
    • Available for a long time
      Our customers appreciate in particular the high long-term availability. Customers can also obtain state-of-the-art parts for machines over 25 years old.
    • Flexible
      Various machines are used in agriculture and forestry. Based on standard interfaces, we offer an individual solution for every requirement.

    Specifically designed products

    • CCU 70 compact control unit
      Functional safety is prescribed in the machinery directive and thus is a decisive factor in both agricultural and forestry technology. The compact control unit from Liebherr complies with the high industry standards.
    • Machine infotainment system
      Similar to passenger traffic, the requirements of multimedia and telematics solutions in the driver's cab are also increasing in agricultural and forestry. The machine infotainment system from our product range provides the perfect solution and can be easily integrated in individual machine concepts.
    • Digital camera
      With the digital camera for mobile use, Liebherr enables the caption of blind spots and work areas that are difficult to see. It meets all legal requirements of a visual aid system for agricultural and forestry machines.
