L 538 and L 550 Wheel Loaders
At CTT Moscow 2015, Liebherr presents the L 550 wheel loader with Z-kinematics and a 3.2 m³ excavation bucket. Additionally, Liebherr exhibits the L 538 all-round wheel loader with Z-kinematics and a 2.5 m³ excavation bucket.
Due to its design, Liebherr excavation buckets are suitable for earthmoving and cohesive material. The straight, flat base of the bucket with grading edge at the rear is also suitable for grading work and for cleaning loading areas. Powerful Stage IIIA / Tier 3 diesel engines drive the L 550 (147 kW / 200 HP) and the L 538 (104 kW / 141 HP).
Like all Liebherr wheel loaders, the L 538 and the L 550 are hydrostatically powered. Under the same working conditions, Liebherr wheel loaders consume up to 25 percent less fuel per operating hour with the hydrostatic driveline. The hydraulic braking action of the driveline minimizes brake wear. Continuous tractive force regulation reduces tyre wear by up to 25 percent.
The tipping load of the L 550 shown at CTT 2015, which has an operating weight of 17,350 kg, amounts to formidable 12,350 kg. The 12,800 kg heavy L 538 has a tipping load of 9,500 kg. Businesses can benefit from this balance of operating weight and tipping load as handling capacity increases per operating hour. Productivity increases with usage, because larger buckets can be attached.
