Exactly three years ago, Liebherr-Maritime Cranes presented the first prototype of the reachstacker LRS 545 at TOC Europe in Rotterdam. Now two further products have extended the LRS 545 series. The LRS 545 - 35 that lifts 35 tonnes in the second container row and the LRS 545 Log Handler with a grapple capacity of 8.2 m².

Ever since the market launch in June 2015, all the devices of the LRS 545 series have been among the most innovative ones on the reachstacker market. The decisive factor above all is the unique drive concept of the Liebherr reachstackers, the hydrostatic drive. This concept is a high-end solution developed by Liebherr and has already proven itself in over 70,000 Liebherr wheel loaders.

“Since the last three years we collected an enormous amount of valuable feedback from our customers. The operators praise particularly the stepless and gearless driving characteristics of our devices repeatedly. Thanks to the individual wheel drive and the excellent panoramic view from the driver's cab, our reachstackers are well-known for their high mobility and all-round visibility, even on terminals with narrow container rows", said Eric Colditz, Liebherr's Sales Director for reachstacker.

All the mentioned advantages of the predecessor models can be found in the new LRS 545 - 35 and in the new Log Handler as well. Therefore, the proven cab design and the slim wedge shape also offer a particularly safe and pleasant driving experience in the new devices. To extend the safety aspect during operation, Liebherr developed the new Topview Camera System, which is an optional feature available for all device types of the LRS 545 series.
