Liebherr at the Plant & Waste Recycling and Futuresource Shows

Liebherr-Great Britain Limited is exhibiting at both the Plant & Waste Recycling Show (June 8-10) in Paignton Green, Torbay on Stand Number M1, as well as Futuresource in Londonís ExCel (June 15-17) on Stand Number P14. On display at both these exhibitions will be two materials handling machines from the companyís comprehensive range of equipment, specifically designed and built for municipal and commercial waste management, transfer stations and recycling operations.

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 360į 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 operatorís 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.

The L 528Z2plus1 Wheeled Loading Shovel

The Liebherr L 528Z2plus1 is an articulated, hydrostatic drive machine in the 11 tonnes operating weight class, with a tipping load of just over 8 tonnes. Powered by a new generation Liebherr diesel engine type D 504 TI, developing 86kW, this wheeled loader is powerful, agile and highly responsive. The hydrostatic drive and Tier 3 engine combine to produce excellent fuel consumption returns with the corresponding and significant reduction in CO2 emmissions. Both axles have limited slip differentials to avoid wheel spin for maximum push, with the added benefit of prolonged tyre life. The loader on show is equipped with 2,400mm Z-lift arms and a 2.20m≥ bucket.

In a dusty environment such as waste handling, engine protection is paramount and the L 528Z2plus1 combats dust incursion with a cyclonic pre-cleaner for the engine induction system. The isolated cooling pack is equipped with a fine mesh filter and an automatic reversing fan to maintain cooling efficiency. The operatorís cab is typically comfortable, functional and a superb example of the science of ergonomics. Air-conditioned with full instrumentation, it is safety glazed with tinted armoured glass to the front guarded screen, fully sound-proofed and vibration dampened with ROPS and FOPS protection. The steering column is fully adjustable and the attachment control is via multi-directional joystick integrated into the seat armrest.
