Versatility at the cold time of the year
In winter, the selection of the correct attachment depends on the weather situation and local conditions. Most commonly, municipalities and service providers use Liebherr Stereoloaders® for winter services with a light material bucket, snow chains and a grit spreader. Equipped in this way, these manoeuvrable machines become especially versatile. The light material bucket is suitable for simple clearance tasks, as well as to load snow onto an HGV for removal.
With a hydraulically swivelling snow blade, the Stereoloaders® can clear roads and tracks of compacted snow. Using a sweeper, they can move smaller amounts of loose, powdery snow. Larger amounts of snow can be dealt with using a snow blower. Thanks to the new Z-unit bar linkage and powerful operating hydraulics, the L 514 and L 518 can operate effectively with these and other attachments. In addition, a newly constructed hydraulic quick hitch makes equipment changing more efficient. In the winter operators really appreciate such convenience!
Comfort and safety are key features in winter service
In the winter the comfort and safety of the machine and operator are paramount. For high standards of safety, a range of equipment is available as optional extras for the L 514 and L 518 Stereoloaders®. For the coldest times of year, items such as the heated external mirror or powerful LED headlights are recommended. An auxiliary heater, or electrical coolant preheating prepare the Stereoloader® for winter operation. The powerful air conditioning system defies the low external temperatures. For improved air circulation, the machine operator can open the hinged window by 180°.
The intuitive operation of the L 514 and L 518 Stereoloader® is very practical. Liebherr has positioned all the operating controls visibly and ergonomically in the spacious cab. Using the Liebherr control lever, integrated into the driver’s seat, the machine operator can work with precision and sensitivity. Additional hydraulic control circuits, required for activities such as using a snow blower are easily controlled using a mini joystick on the Liebherr control lever. These and other features increase the ease of operation and thus productivity in winter service.
