Like all Liebherr wheel loaders, the L 576 is hydrostatically powered. Under the same working conditions, Liebherr wheel loaders consume up to 25 percent less fuel per operating hour. The hydraulic braking action of the drive reduces brake wear to a minimum. Continuous tractive force regulation decreases tyre wear by up to 25 percent. The hydrostatic driveline helps decrease business, service and maintenance costs. The Liebherr Power Efficiency (LPE) system developed by Liebherr lowers fuel consumption as well.
Engineers developed a clever solution during the installation of the engine: Liebherr installed the engines in the rear of the machine – lengthways in the L 576 with the output shaft facing backwards. In this unique way, the compact design means that the diesel engine and the variable displacement pump counterbalance each other. The centre of gravity shifts to the rear of the machine. Liebherr does away with any ballast and can achieve lower operating weights and higher tipping load potential.
