At Conexpo-Con/Agg 2020, Liebherr is showcasing an extensive selection of earthmoving and construction equipment as well as the product range of components for mechanical, hydraulic and electric drive systems. Altogether, Liebherr’s products will fill more than 4900 m², providing room for hydraulic excavators, wheel loaders, crawler loaders and tractors, deep foundation machines, material handlers, tower cranes, mobile and crawler cranes, as well as a concrete pump.

 

Here are details about some of the show’s featured products:

 

A US premier: The new generation of Liebherr crawler excavators

The Generation 8 crawler excavator series is made up of seven models ranging from 22 to 45 t: R 922, R 924, R 926, R 930, R 934, R 938 and R 945. Two machines of the product range, R 926 and R 938, will be exhibited for the first time in America at the Liebherr booth.

The highlights of the new crawler excavator generation include higher engine power, a heavier counterweight for higher bucket capacities, and minimal fuel consumption. A new equipment concept with a modified piece at the top of the boom is an innovative new feature. This leads to better performance and equipment forces with reduced operating weight of the machine. Another feature is the optimized load curve, which yields reduced fuel consumption. These machines have been specially designed to provide extra comfort and safety for the operator, as well as optimum ergonomics and performance on the job site.

 

North American premiere: New assistance systems for wheel loaders

Liebherr will present four wheel loaders at the show. This includes an L 566 XPower® with power-split travel drive. Liebherr installs this drive as standard on its large XPower® wheel loaders. It combines short loading cycles with optimal hydrostatic drive with the mechanical drive, the benefits of which come into effect over long distances and up hills. The L 566 XPower® is also equipped with numerous new assistance systems, which Liebherr is showing for the first time in North America at the exhibition. These include active personnel detection, adaptive working lighting, an integrated tire pressure monitoring system and the weighing system with Truck Payload Assist. The L 566 XPower® also has the new joystick steering for wheel loaders.

The largest Liebherr wheel loader, the 32,6 t L 586 XPower®, will also be at the exhibition stand. With a power split XPower® drive, it delivers high performance and enormous fuel savings. The L 538 represents the Liebherr medium-sized wheel loader range. It is equipped with parallel kinematics for high holding forces in the upper lift arms area. It is ideal for working in heavy-duty industrial applications such as in recycling with high dump buckets. For customers from countries in Central and South America, Liebherr is showing the L 550 wheel loader. It is a representative of the separate wheel loader series for less emission-regulated markets.

 

Bringing large-scale technology to life with tailor-made components

Construction machines are exposed to high dynamic loads and use corresponding high pressures. Under these conditions, Liebherr’s robust hydraulic pumps and motors guarantee a long service life. Liebherr is presenting the hydraulic double motor DMVA D 165-165, the hydraulic pump DPVG 140 as well as size 85 of the series 20 of the LH30VO medium pressure pump. The latter pump can be used to power, for example, the equipment, ventilation systems or steering of the machines.

Among the latest development is also the in-line diesel engine D976, Liebherr’s biggest and most powerful in-line engine with a displacement of 1,098 in³ and a power range from 350 to 620 kW in its standard version.

 

An upgraded bearings portfolio is being introduced this year, with the super-size seamless slewing bearings of up to 31,17 ft helps to convey and rotate enormous loads. Last but not least, the new planetary gearbox series on display features high power density, minimal weight and reduced installation space and is ideal for use in lifting and driving applications, or as a drive for undercarriages and crawler vehicles.

 

When it comes to productivity: the HS 8200 duty cycle crawler crane

The HS 8200 is one of the innovations in the HS series. The design of this duty cycle crawler crane is based on its predecessor, the proven HS 895 HD, but boasts an even better performance capacity. The elegant design combines safety, performance and economy, as well as a high level of operator comfort.

The HS 8200 is the new Liebherr duty cycle crawler crane in the 200-tonne category. Thanks to the newly designed drive system, the efficiency is increased by 15 %. Load capacities are also increased by up to 15 %. The new duty cycle crawler crane is the optimum machine for extraction work and has the capability of not only using a dragline bucket but also a grab. Like all products in this series, the HS 8200 is versatile. For deep foundation purposes, the machine can be applied for dynamic soil compaction, as well as fitted with a casing oscillator or fixed leader. When digging a shaft, the winches can even be used with the full 35 t line pull in the fourth layer. Thanks to various counterweight options, the duty cycle crawler crane also convinces in lifting operation.

 

The North American premiere of the new generation 8 crawler dozers

Liebherr is introducing its latest Generation 8 dozers to North America at Conexpo 2020 with the new PR 736. Equipped with many features that further enhance operator comfort, excellent grading characteristics and new standard grading systems, the PR 736 Generation 8 is a do-it-all machine for grading and mining use.

 

The PR 736 is powered by a newly developed Liebherr diesel engine belonging to the EVO series (160 kW). It meets emission level Tier 4f, its exhaust gases being cleaned by a combination between a diesel oxidation catalyst and a selective catalytic reduction and particle filter. Alternatively customers in lower regulated markets have additional engine versions and equipment levels to choose from. The machines’ operating weight is up to 25.5 t. To cover a maximally large application range, various blade versions (straight, semi-U and 6 way blade) with capacities from 4.10 – 5.56 m³ as well as many rear equipment options are offered.
