In the course of 2018, Liebherr will launch 8 new telescopic handler models in a total of 26 different versions. The new Liebherr telescopic handlers will be available in two model lines: First, the top-of-the-range models for materials handling or for production applications (identified by the suffix S). Second, the simple, cost-optimised value models for stacking and lifting applications.

The new Liebherr telescopic handlers have a maximum speed of 40 km/h. As an alternative, the machines are offered in speed versions of 20 km/h and 30 km/h. The telescopic handlers are braked without wear by means of the hydrostatic drive's self-stoppage function. The "Liebherr hill assist", installed as standard, ensures safety and maximum driving comfort when travelling over uneven ground thanks to the automatic activation of the parking brake.

The machines' performance has been improved as a result of the complete redesign of the working hydraulics. As an alternative to the established working hydraulics in the value models, Liebherr is equipping the S models with high-performance hydraulics. A powerful load sensing working hydraulic pump with an oil output of 160 l/min and a control block with load-independent flow rate distribution enable overlapping working movements and therefore dynamic and rapid operating cycles.

Different machine hitches are offered for all models in the new generation of telescopic handlers ex-works. In addition to the Liebherr quick coupler, quick couplers which are compatible with the machine hitches from the manufacturers Claas, Manitou, Kramer, JCB and Volvo are also offered. The variety of machine hitches available means that customers can also use their existing tool attachments from other manufacturers on the Liebherr telescopic handlers.

Even before its official market launch, the new T46-7 model won two design awards.. The German Design Council named this telescopic handler as the winner of the renowned "German Design Award 2018" in the transportation category for its ideal visibility and its dynamic appearance. It also won the "Red Dot Product Design Award 2017".

A wide range of additional options allows the new telescopic handlers to be configured for specific applications. For instance, Liebherr offers its customers ex-works a reversible fan for cleaning the radiator and additional safety guards or covers for the travel drive and main frame. Automatic pressure relief for the working hydraulics in order to make replacing tool attachments simple, an additional hydraulic circuit for actuating further functions on the boom head and a separate control option for the hydraulic oil flow rate in the working hydraulics are also offered.

Infinitely Variable Travel Drive and Maximum Manoeuvrability

The tried-and-tested hydrostatic travel drive with infinitely variable acceleration without shifting gear and good manoeuvrability guarantees quick work processes even in limited spaces. The construction machine can be used universally and is solid from the ground up. It is designed for maximum performance in various applications. High load capacities, intuitive operation and high performance components allow the driver to complete his work quickly and reliably.

Meeting Daily Requirements

Robust and reliable: as characterised by Liebherr ‘s’ telescopic handlers. Advanced technology with high-quality materials and build quality guarantee maximum availability. A high level of utilisation and value is guaranteed in the long term.

Ease of Operation and Optimum Overview

The cab of the ‘s’ telescopic handler from Liebherr is an ideal workplace. It provides an excellent all-around view, has a spacious interior, provides a safe working environment, and its ergonomic controls are ideal for relaxed and productive operation.

Optimum Visibility in all Directions: The innovative protective design of the roof window provides a perfect view of the load while also protecting the driver.

Fine Control of Movement Hydraulics: Using two switches on the joystick, the drive speed can be split into three ranges (snail, turtle and hare pace).

Time and Cost Savings

All service points are centrally located and readily accessible. Daily inspection of the machine is organised in a simple and time saving manner due to the wide-opening engine hood. Long service intervals save costs and minimise downtime.
