Further major advantages of the new piling and drilling rig are its fast mobilisation and easy transportation. The rig can be transported with the leader, multi sledge and rope still attached to the machine. In order to minimise the transportation length the leader can be folded. In addition, no tools are required for folding the leader and mounting the counterweight.
The LRB 355 has been especially designed for drilling with full displacement tool. The rig can, however, be used for a great number of different applications including drilling with Kelly equipment, double rotary head and continuous flight auger, soil mixing as well as piling jobs with vibrator and hydraulic hammer. For these applications the proven Liebherr attachments are used.
A new attachment is the innovative BAT rotary drive. It offers a torque of 450 kNm and can be individually set up depending on the application. The main advantages of the hydraulic drive manufactured by Liebherr are automated torque adjustment, continuous speed optimization and four electronically adjustable speed ranges. Furthermore, the rotary drive excels with its simple structure, its low maintenance requirements and, above all, its exceptional efficiency.
Like all Liebherr piling and drilling rigs the LRB 355 is also fitted with the proven Litronic control system and thus offers a multitude of programme options for the various drilling methods as well as for clearly displayed information on service requirements and the condition of the machine.
In the field of special deep foundation Liebherr offers a number of different services to assist the customers. These services range from application consulting at the jobsite to simulator training and to the recording, reporting and transferring of machine relevant data. Features such as Liebherr simulators (LiSIM), process data recording and reporting (PDE/PDR) and data transfer system (LiDAT) thus help to increase the efficiency at the jobsite.
