The Liebherr wheel loader range continues to develop and is ideally prepared to meet the specific requirements of a wide range of industrial sectors. Currently, Liebherr offers various wheel loaders in four size classes: compact loaders, stereo loaders, all-rounder wheel loaders in the mid-range series as well as the XPower large wheel loaders. These reliable and efficient machines are particularly impressive due to their high level of productivity and versatility. The modern wheel loaders are designed down to the smallest detail for comfort, safety and ease of maintenance.
The Liebherr L 550 and L 556 wheel loaders from the proven XPower range are now even more powerful. Generation 6.2 impresses with its increased engine performance while maintaining low fuel consumption, and with a choice of four improved lift arm variants.
The new Liebherr L 509 Tele telescopic wheel loader is a unique multifunctional machine which combines the lift height and reach of a regular telescopic loader with the productive material handling capacity of a classic wheel loader: The benefits of two machine types in a single product. Developed on the basis of the Speeder L 509 stereoloader this new telescopic wheel loader retains the proven stereo steering and can reach a top speed of 38 km/h as standard thanks to the powerful hydrostatic travel drive. It also complies with the emission stage V/ Tier 4f specifications.
The high-performance Liebherr L 526, L 538 and L 546 wheel loaders are genuine all-rounders. They impress in all areas of application with their very high levels of productivity and efficiency. The benefits of the new wheel loaders include a marked increase in the performance of the travel drive, modifications to the lift arms and a redesigned operator's cab. The reliable exhaust gas treatment means that all three models comply with the emission stage V/tier 4f guidelines. And now, the innovative assistance systems and new joystick steering from the XPower large wheel loaders are available for the mid-range wheel loader series.
The versatile compact loaders excel in wide range of applications. They are used, for example, for companies in road and sewer construction, gardening and landscaping or municipalities. The practicality of their compact design is clearly evident from everyday working operations: the low height and the low weight of compact loaders allow the operator to transport the machines quickly and easily to various locations.
The robust stereo loaders impress with their unique stereo steering system which gives them exceptional manoeuvrability. This is a real benefit particularly for sites with limited space, for example in urban areas. Tight entry ways and passages, as in the case of outdoor constructions of public buildings or in gardens, are no problem. Due to their smaller articulation angle of only 30 degrees, the stereo loaders can transport particularly high payloads and, at the same time, impress with their stability and resistance to tipping over.
XPower is an innovative machine concept that combines performance, fuel efficiency, robustness and comfort. With their powerful travel drive XPower wheel loaders operate efficiently and are highly effective in all areas of application.
The intelligent assistance systems for Liebherr wheel loaders help operators in their daily work. Examples include active personnel detection at the rear, the new joystick steering and the integrated tyre pressure monitoring system. With these and other assistance systems Liebherr offers integral solutions to optimise safety and comfort and to increase performance.
The standard z-bar kinematics offers high torque in the lower lift arm range. The ideal outcome for conventional wheel loader use is easy and fast filling of the bucket which results in high material handling performance.
Alternatively, industrial lift arms for the L 550 – L 566 XPower and L 580 XPower wheel loaders are available as are parallel kinematics for the L 526 – L 546. These kinematic versions offer a particularly high torque in the upper lift arm range and are therefore the best solution for industrial use.
For generations Liebherr has been providing innovative and creative solutions to the highest quality standards. The group’s many years of expertise are evident in the smallest detail in each of its products. This knowledge and experience enable Liebherr to offer its customers a high degree of efficiency and productivity in every area of application.
The high-performance Liebherr L 550 XPower - L 586 XPower wheel loader range impresses with high handling capacity for mining. XPower offers the highest efficiency and maximum performance in all areas of application, whether on short or long distances, on level ground or on gradients. This increases productivity in all working cycles and thus increases customer profit.
On the Liebherr L 526 – L 566 XPower and L 580 XPower wheel loaders, you can choose between industrial/parallel and z-bar kinematics. The wheel loaders are therefore particularly versatile and universally applicable. Their enormous retaining forces in the upper lift arm area make the parallel – as well as the industrial kinematics – particularly suitable for industrial applications with heavy equipment. The right machine is always available for specific applications such as loading and compacting bulk goods in high-walking-floor containers. This increases the utilisation of the machine and thus increases productivity.
The powerful Liebherr L 506 Compact - L 518 Stereo wheel loaders impress in gardening and landscaping with their versatile and universal applicability. The compact design coupled with the unique steering system of the stereo loaders make these wheel loaders particularly agile and flexible.
Even under the toughest conditions Liebherr wheel loaders meet the high Liebherr quality standards through the use of in-house manufactured – perfectly matched – components, . Specific tasks, such as transporting and loading scrap steel and metal, or loading shredder systems, are performed by Liebherr wheel loaders to the highest degree.
The right machine is always available for specific uses such as transporting and loading logs, wood chips and wood shavings or loading, debarking and sorting plants. This increases the utilisation of the machine and increases productivity.
The L 580 LogHandler XPower was specially developed by Liebherr for the diverse requirements of the timber industry. The L 580 XPower LogHandler can cover large areas with special lift arms which have been reinforced for this purpose and which offer a maximum reach of almost four metres. As with the current Liebherr large wheel loaders, the heart of the machine is the power-split XPower driveline.
Tunnel construction is a specialist civil engineering discipline and is one of the most demanding areas of application for construction machines. The Liebherr group has a diverse range of machines in its product portfolio that work productively under the extreme conditions of a tunnel construction site. The tunnel package for Liebherr wheel loaders contains many specific details in order to guarantee a high level of durability and safety for tunnel use.
Liebherr wheel loaders are particularly versatile and can be used universally thanks to the selection of kinematics. Liebherr installs heavy components, such as the engine, at the rear. This shifts the centre of gravity behind the rear axle of the wheel loader so that there is no need for additional ballast. This ideal weight distribution leads to high tipping loads and higher handling output per operating hour.
The Liebherr XPower travel drive with Liebherr Power Efficiency (LPE) provides a fuel reduction of up to 30%. LPE optimises the interaction of the diesel engine, transmission and working hydraulics for maximum efficiency. In addition, there is minimal tyre wear and almost no brake wear.
The components of the proven Liebherr travel drives are extremely robust and powerful. This ensures a long service life for the machine, which operates reliably even under the most demanding operating conditions.
Liebherr continues to develop and build key components itself, or in cooperation with premium manufacturers, to ensure the high quality of the components used.
The optimal and re-developed cab design make it possible to work comfortably and productively. The spacious windows in the cab offer outstanding all-round vision of the working attachment and operating area.

Daily maintenance points can be safely and conveniently reached from the ground. The entire engine compartment can be accessed by opening just one hood. A quick and safe check saves time and money.
The Liebherr fuel-saving calculator for earthmoving machines is a free App that enables users to quickly and easily see in real time just how fuel efficient Liebherr machines are and determine the potential savings of operating a Liebherr machine.
The LiDAT data transfer and location system enables fleet management of Liebherr machines from the product areas of earthmoving, hydraulic crawler cranes, tower cranes and maritime cranes on a uniform platform. Because machines from other manufacturers can also be integrated, comprehensive machine fleets can be managed.
Almost 60 years after its début, Liebherr has restored one of the first wheel loader prototypes from the corporate group’s early years: the LSL 1500. This specimen is the oldest preserved Liebherr wheel loader in existence. Liebherr has invested about 650 working hours in the restoration of the vintage loader which is now used as an exhibition piece in the Liebherr Bischofshofen factory.
