Up to 70 percent of energy and materials can be saved by remanufacturing as compared to mass production. Liebherr-Ettlingen GmbH utilizes this potential and specializes in efficient remanufacturing of drive components. In addition to the general overhaul and repair of drive components it also manufactures exchange components. In 2013 the ten thousandth remanufactured hydraulic component and four thousandth remanufactured diesel engine were delivered.

Since 2004 used drive components have been remanufactured and given a general overhaul in compliance with industrial standards at the Ettlingen plant. Liebherr-Ettlingen GmbH manufactures high-quality remanufactured components here. They are used in Liebherr for construction machines, handling equipment, and mining vehicles, as well as in mobile cranes and maritime cranes. State-of-the-art test benches ensure the quality so that the standard is the same as that for original new parts. Liebherr-Ettlingen GmbH gives a comprehensive warranty on all its remanufactured and repaired components.

Reman from Liebherr - a new life for your machine

Reman from Liebherr - a new life for your machine

The remanufacturing program (reman) covers the following Liebherr components:

  • Diesel and gas engines
  • Travel and swiveling drives
  • Splitter boxes
  • Hydraulic pumps and motors
  • Hydraulic cylinders
  • Axles (made by Dana)
  • Rope winches

There is a choice of three different remanufacturing levels depending on the budget, residual machine value, and possible downtime.

Exchange component

For a preemptive order of an exchange component the downtime of the machine is under 24 hours, as the component in use is only removed after the exchange component has been delivered. The used component is completely dismantled after it has been removed. Paint is cleaned from useable individual parts, they are then cleaned, and assessed and remanufactured in compliance with strict guidelines. There is a refund for the used component, a new part warranty for the exchange component.

General overhaul

For the general overhaul, the customer's own component is restored to its original technical condition at a fixed price. Full disassembly and cleaning is included. All parts subject to wear are replaced, and a new part warranty is given on the whole component.


For this option, components are checked for faults in the Reman Competence Center. The customer is then provided with a separate cost estimate for subsequent repairs. The warranty also extends over the whole component for a repair.
