Liebherr to exhibit new L 538 P wheel loader at RWM

  • L 538 P wheel loader complies with Stage IV / Tier 4f emissions regulations
  • Up to 25% more fuel savings compared to other models in same size class
  • Fitted with larger axles and built with a stronger steel structure

Biggleswade (Great Britain), July 2016 - Liebherr-Great Britain Limited is exhibiting once again at RWM inside Stand Number 5P10-R11. On display will be two specialist materials handling machines from the company's comprehensive range of equipment: the new L 538 P wheel loader and the LH 22 M materials handler. Both machines are designed and factory built for municipal and commercial waste management, transfer stations, recycling operations and secondary metals handling.

The L 538 P is from the new generation of mid-sized machines developed for demanding recycling applications. Fitted with an efficient 114 kw/155 HP engine, the L 538 P fulfils emission guidelines for Stage IV / Tier 4f. The hydrostatic driveline allows rapid and continuous acceleration in all speed ranges and along with the Liebherr-Power-Efficiency (LPE) system ensures that the engine delivers optimum power even at low engine speeds. This results in fuel savings of up to 25% when compared to other wheel loaders in the same size class.

This wheel loader range also features larger axles with automatic self-locking differentials to provide maximum traction even on rough terrain. In addition, the steel structure and two lift arm variants, Z-bar linkage and parallel-linkage, are manufactured from reinforced steel to further increase durability.

Like all other Liebherr new generation wheel loaders, the L 538 P provides optimum productivity and profitability. This is in part thanks to the unique component positioning that allows the engine to double as a counterweight and thereby provide higher tipping loads at a lower operating weight.

The newly ergonomically-designed cab has numerous features to provide the operator with maximum comfort and visibility. Maintenance has been similarly well thought out: all service points are accessible from ground level and can be reached quickly and safely to speed up the maintenance process.

The LH22 M material handler that Liebherr will also have on display at RWM combines comfort, performance and reliability. It offers a winning combination of ground-breaking fuel efficiency, high lift capacity and long reach distances.

Equipped with a 5.5 m straight boom, a 3.5 m industrial stick with tipping kinematics and a Liebherr 0.75 m³ sorting grab with perforated shells, the LH 22 M is optimally equipped for recycling and sorting tasks. Other features of the machine’s configuration are the operator's cab with hydraulic height adjustment plus the four outrigger supports at the front and rear.
