The 50,000th Liebherr wheel loader

The 50,000th Liebherr wheel loader has rolled off the production line at Liebherr-Werk Bischofshofen GmbH. On 11th April 2017, the 50,000th Liebherr wheel loader, an emission Stage IV / Tier 4f L 566 XPower, is to be delivered to the Geiger Group. Geiger‘s Managing Partner Pius Geiger and Geiger Logistik’s Managing Director Gernot Beer travelled to Bischofshofen to pick up the anniversary wheel loader in person. As family-owned businesses, Geiger and Liebherr are connected by a partnership of mutual respect that spans several decades.

Liebherr designed an exceptional paintwork concept for the L 566 XPower to celebrate the anniversary with a combination of gold and Geiger's company colours, this wheel loader not only convinces at the quarry on the basis of its technology but also catches the eye in terms of design. The anniversary L 566 XPower wheel loader is, like all XPower series models, a technological milestone. Already over 1,000 of the 50,000 Liebherr wheel loaders feature XPower generation technology.

Geiger Unternehmensgruppe uses the L 566 XPower for transportation at the company-owned quarry in Wertach im Allgäu, Southern Germany. The wheel loader transports material within the quarry, loads lorries and dumpers and clears the vast armour stone sorting system.
