Liebherr wheel loaders encompass over 50 years of experience and a high degree of expert knowledge in development, design, and manufacture. Liebherr-Werk Bischofshofen GmbH is well-known for its continuous innovations. A current example of the company's innovative strength is the XPower wheel loaders for which the designers in Bischofshofen developed a holistic wheel loader concept, which sets new standards in terms of fuel efficiency, performance, robustness, and comfort. The core feature of the XPower wheel loader is its innovative power-split travel drive, which allows operators to save up to 30 percent of fuel.
