Liebherr presents its first generation 6 pipelayer. The new RL 56 Litronic provides a lifting capacity of 72 tonnes / 158,733 lbs. and comes with a state-of-the-art diesel engine, complying with Tier 4f / Stage IV emissions standards.

Succeeding the popular product range of Generation 4 pipelayers, Liebherr presents the first pipelayer model of the new Generation 6 as a world première at Conexpo 2017.

The new pipelayer has been designed with focus on customers and end-user requirements, so customers in the pipe line industry can now benefit from the added value of this new machine generation. Liebherr pipelayers provide maximum performance and handle the most difficult jobs. High lifting forces, outstanding maneuverability and heavy-duty components in the travel and working hydraulics ensure peak performance when laying pipelines.

As top priority, all Liebherr pipelayers are based on a well thoughtout safety concept that sets standards in pipeline construction. The cabs come with integrated rollover protection as standard. Convenient and good visibility to the working area is guaranteed.
