From its wheel loaders series for lower-regulated markets, Liebherr displays the L 550 which is one of the five models available in this product range. Due to its hydrostatic driveline, this machine is very fuel efficient; consuming up to 25 percent less fuel compared with conventional wheel loaders under the same conditions. The L 550 on display is powered by a 147kW / 200HP diesel engine, Stage II / Tier 2 / GOU III compliant. Equipped with a 4.20yd³ (3.2-m³) bucket the wheel loader achieves a tipping load of 27,225lbs. (12,350 kg) at an operating weight of 17,350kg.
Overall, Liebherr manufactures five wheel loader models for lower regulated markets, the L 580, L 566, L 550 and the two all-round wheel loaders L 538 and L 524. Liebherr wheel loaders are robust machines with the high performance and the low operating costs for which Liebherr is well-known.
The combination of the hydrostatic travel drive and the special mounting position of the diesel engine enables movement of high load-weights. Hydraulic braking action of the hydrostatic driveline increases safety at work. Designed according to the company’s high quality standards, the L 550 wheel loader operates reliably – even in the toughest conditions.
