At this year’s Ankomak trade fair held from June 1 to June 5 in Istanbul (Turkey), visitors can find the Liebherr stand in the outdoor area 0 500. Here, Liebherr presents high-performance equipment from its the ranges of earthmoving, deep-foundation and mobile cranes. The exhibits on display are dedicated to Turkish customers’ requirements.

Liebherr presents in Istanbul seven machines for earthmoving and special deep foundation operation as well as for mobile lifting jobs. The line-up includes two crawler excavators, a mobile excavator, a dozer, a wheel loader, a rotary drilling rig and an all-terrain mobile crane.

For the first time in Turkey, Liebherr will present the new XPower® wheel loader generation at Ankomak. XPower® is an integrated, innovative machine concept that sets new standards in terms of fuel efficiency, performance, robust design and comfort. Representing this recently introduced wheel loader concept, the new L 556 XPower® will be on display in Istanbul.

The new Liebherr R 970 SME on display in Istanbul is the successor of the Super Mass Excavation variant of the trusted R 964 C. Its versatile concept offers multiple application options. The R 970 SME features a newly designed driver's cab and offers the machine operator a spacious workplace with ergonomic layout of the switches and control elements.

Furthermore, Liebherr displays the LB 36-410, which is part of Liebherr’s series of pure rotary drilling rigs. The machine possesses unique features like a stable leader design, robust kinematics as well as a broad range of possible applications. Like all rigs of the LB series, the LB 36 has been specially designed for Kelly drilling, drilling with double rotary head, continuous flight auger as well as for soil mixing applications.

The LTM 1200-5.1 all-terrain mobile crane has a 72 m telescopic boom. This 7-section boom offers outstanding lifting capacities, as the crane’s maximum possible total weight of 60 tons with a 12-ton axle load is fully exploited to optimise the available lifting capacity.
