A third Liebherr L 586 XPower® wheel loader was recently added to the machine park of the Rinsche gravel plant in Anröchte. The key factor in the recent acquisition were the positive experiences of the two previous L 586 XPower® wheel loaders purchased by Managing Director Wilhelm Rinsche in 2019.

“With its power split driveline, our L 586 use only around 20 litres of diesel per operating hour. This is approximately 12 litres less than a comparable wheel loader from another manufacturer which we previously had in the quarry. The Liebherr wheel loaders enable us to achieve huge cost savings and greatly reduced CO2 emissions. The low fuel consumption is particularly worth noting because the wheel loaders, weighing more than 33 tonnes, are fitted with a range of special equipment for mining operations.

We are delighted, since the first demonstration in the quarry in 2018, to now be delivering the third L 586 XPower® to Wilhelm Rinsche and his team,” explains Wilfried Holz during the machine hand-over procedure. Wilfried Holz is a sales manager at Liebherr-Baumaschinen Vertriebs- und Service GmbH in Dortmund and looks after Schotterwerk Rinsche GmbH. In the Soest Börde in the heart of North Rhine-Westphalia, the Rinsche stone quarry extracts “German bluestone” and “Anröchter greenstone” also known as “Anröchter dolomite”. The Rinsche family business also mines large quantities of gravel.
