Liebherr started delivering the new truck mixer generation 05: The type HTM 905 is already being delivered to the customers.
Delivery of the first new truck mixers has already started with the most common type, the HTM 905. Sales of the new truck mixer generation 05 began in January. The new truck mixer generation has been completely reworked for increased cost efficiency, improved ergonomics and more safety. An online configuration tool helps when selecting many new options and even determines the possible payload.
The entire drum including the spiral plates and wear protection strips are made of LICRO 500 special steel. The customer benefits from an increased drum service life. The empty weight has been reduced by up to 300 kg when compared to its predecessors, which is of benefit to the payload. Liebherr paid particular attention to the subject of cleaning. Edges that are susceptible to dirt have been rectified and smooth surfaces have been created. The result is lower susceptibility to dirt and reduced cleaning effort. The optional Litronic-EMC drum controller controls the diesel engine speed according to need when loading and unloading. The constant speed drive prevents unnecessary drum revolutions during the journey. The fuel savings and the reduced wear also increase cost effectiveness.
Many things have been made more user friendly for the operator, in order to make day to day work easier. An innovative platform concept allows accessories such as storage compartments, holders or extension chutes to be installed in various positions. Options can also be installed subsequently. All control elements have been configured to be extremely user friendly. The new ladder platform provides more space, and the extension ladder is made of aluminium, is lighter and can be operated easier. An optional operator roof at the rear of the truck mixer protects the driver from the elements.
