Conexpo-Con/Agg 2020: Liebherr celebrate 50 years in the US


Extensive range of earthmoving and construction equipment to include new Generation 8 machines

HAVING commenced manufacturing in the US in 1970, Liebherr will be celebrating 50 years as a leading North American provider of construction equipment, products and services with an extensive selection of earthmoving and construction equipment at Conexpo-Con/Agg 2020.

Among the company’s featured products will the US premier of the new generation of Liebherr crawler excavators. The Generation 8 crawler excavator series consists of seven models ranging from 22 to 45 tonnes and two machines from the range, the R 926 and R 938, will be on show for the first time in America. Highlights of the new machines include higher engine power, a heavier counterweight for greater bucket capacities, and minimal fuel consumption.

Liebherr will also present four wheel loaders at the show, including an L 566 XPower with power-split travel drive, which combines optimal hydrostatic drive for short loading cycles with the benefits of mechanical drive over long distances and on inclines. The L 566 XPower is also equipped with numerous new assistance systems, plus the new joystick steering for wheel loaders.

The L 538 model will represent Liebherr’s medium-sized wheel loader range. It is equipped with parallel kinematics for high holding forces in the upper lift arms area, making it particularly suitable for working in heavy-duty industrial applications such as recycling with high dump buckets.

Liebherr latest Generation 8 dozers will also be introduced to North America with the new PR 736 on display. The dozer is powered by a newly developed Liebherr EVO-series diesel engine that meets emission level Tier 4 Final, has an operating weight of up to 25.5 tonnes and various blade versions (straight, semi-U and six-way blade) with capacities from 4.10 to 5.56 cubic metres.
