LB 16 unplugged Drilling rig

The LB 16 unplugged is the first battery-powered drilling rig in the world. With the electro-hydraulic version, Liebherr presents the deep foundation machine with alternative drive concept. The innovative Liebherr model is operated by battery without a cable, therefore: unplugged. There are no restrictions in performance and application of the LB 16 unplugged when compared to the conventional version. The battery is designed to last for a 10-hour working day and can be simply recharged using a conventional jobsite electric supply (32 A, 63 A). Using a 125 A supply, the battery can be fast-charged in barely 7 hours.

Eco silent mode

Eco silent mode

With the eco silent mode the engine speed can be reduced to a predefined, required level. With this feature a notable reduction in diesel consumption can be achieved without any impact on operational output. Noise emissions are thus also lowered.

Automatic engine stop

Automatic engine stop

The machine can optionally be equipped with an automatic engine stop control. Thanks to this feature it automatically switches off during longer work breaks after evaluating several machine parameters. This is fuel saving and environmentally friendly.

Fleet management and teleservice

Fleet management and teleservice

The data transmission and positioning system “LiDAT” provides important information on the operation of the machine. With these data the operation becomes more efficient. Various additional modules allow machine data reporting or access through service engineers via teleservice.

Kelly drilling

Kelly drilling

Kelly drilling belongs to the most common dry rotary drilling methods. Soil and rock material is conveyed to the surface discontinuously with relatively short rotary drilling tools. more

Continuous flight auger drilling

Continuous flight auger drilling

The loosened soil material is continuously conveyed to the surface using a continuous auger, the so-called continuous flight auger. more

Double rotary drilling

Double rotary drilling

Double rotary drilling combines continuous flight auger drilling with a continuous casing. more
