Three Liebherr L 586 XPower® wheel loaders for BTB Group Berlin

Building for Berlin since 1990 – the family-run BTB Group Berlin offers everything from earthmoving to recycling from a single supplier. Three new Liebherr L 586 XPower® wheel loaders have recently been added to the company's fleet. They replace L 580 XPower® machines purchased in 2017, which have performed reliably. Their fuel efficiency, compared to other wheel loaders of the same size, was an important criterion in the purchasing decision. The new wheel loaders are also visually-impressive with their special paintwork in the BTB Group corporate design. The keys were handed over in person by Oliver Hanneck, salesman at Liebherr-Baumaschinen Vertriebs- und Service GmbH Berlin.

Three new L 586 XPower® units have recently been put into operation at BTB Group Berlin's 25-hectare recycling facility. A multitude of recycling plants – approved in accordance with the German Emission Control Act (BImSchG) – operate at the complex, and a total of up to one million tonnes of mineral and non-mineral construction waste is processed, handled, and reused annually. The new Liebherr wheel loaders feed crushers and screeners with construction waste and load lorries with processed material. The L 586 XPower®, Liebherr's largest wheel loader, only requires two to three cycles to load a lorry. This ensures quick and resource-efficient handling of material.

 

Economical and resource-efficient due to power-split transmission

“Powerful, efficient and noticeably more fuel-efficient than the competition: these were the reasons behind our purchasing decision,” reveals BTB Group Berlin company owner Philip Breul. The power-split drive concept of the XPower® wheel loaders is what enables this. XPower® provides a combination of hydrostatic and mechanical drives. The interaction between the two adapts automatically and continuously to the respective application. This, together with Liebherr Power Efficiency (LPE), ensures a fuel reduction of up to 30 % compared with other wheel loaders in this size class.

 

Liebherr integrates special paintwork for wheel loaders directly into the production process

Having a fleet painted in the company's own design is not only good marketing, but also a source of pride for many organizations. For this reason, the BTB Group ordered the three new L 586 XPower® units from Liebherr in its company colours. The specialists at Liebherr's Bischofshofen plant implement special paintwork directly in the production process. This means that the individual components are painted before assembly and then incorporated into the regular production process. This procedure saves subsequent painting and manual reworking. Liebherr thus achieves a higher degree of quality with custom paintworks.
