Liebherr at Futuresource and the Plant & Waste Recycling Shows

Liebherr-Great Britain Limited is exhibiting at both Futuresource in London's ExCel (June 9-11) on Stand Number P14 as well as the Plant & Waste Recycling Show (June 15-17) in Paignton Green, Torbay on Stand Number M15. On display at both these exhibitions will be two materials handling machines from the company's comprehensive range of equipment, specifically designed and built for municipal and commercial waste management, transfer stations and recycling operations.

The L 5502plus2 High Lift Waste Handler
The Liebherr L 5502plus2 is an articulated, hydrostatically driven wheeled loader in the 16 tonnes class, with a tipping load of 11,650kg and is one of a range of sixteen hydrostatic wheeled load-ing shovels from Liebherr. Power is supplied by a Liebherr made engine which develops 130kW and complies with Stage IIIA / Tier 3 emissions. The special Ulric high-tip trash clamp bucket fitted to the show model has a capacity of 3.50m, which provides a superb dump height clearance of 5.38 metres - ideal for loading and tamping material into high-sided bulkers.

All Liebherr Waste Handlers feature high level, isolated cooling systems which are equipped with an automatically reversing fan to maintain radiator cleanliness and efficiency; cyclonic engine air pre-cleaners are also included to combat the dusty environment found in many recycling applications. The hydrostatic driveline system on the loaders not only contributes to considerable fuel consumption benefits but also, with limited slip differential in both front and rear axles, produces good efficient pushing power when stockpiling whilst, at the same time, prolonging tyre life. An automatic greasing system is standard and greatly contributes to reducing maintenance time.

The A 316 Litronic Industrial Rehandler
The A 316 Litronic is a wheeled materials handler featuring an hydraulically elevating cab, a 3.5 metres stick and a 5.5 metres industrial boom for lift height and long reach capabilities. The machine is equipped with a waste sorting grab and hydraulic swivel for full 360 rotation. For operational stability, the A 316 is fitted with front and rear hydraulic outriggers and, when free-on-wheels, the mobility and agility of this machine provides excellent manoeuvrability around site.

The A316 Litronic is an 18 tonnes class machine and the engine output is 94kW, providing power to spare. Highly successsful in waste transfer stations and scrap metal processing applications, the A 316 has lift capacities of up to 11 tonnes, a maximum reach of 9 metres and a lift height of up to 9 metres.

The operator's cab is typically comfortable and functional, with Litronic engine, hydraulic and electronic management system and lift charts. A safe load indicator is standard. The cab can be hydraulically raised to give an eye-line of approximately 5 metres.
