- Company & Industry News
Liebherr-Great Britain Ltd. is exhibiting again at the Recycling & Waste Management Exhibition 2007, taking place from 11 - 13 September at the NEC. On the Liebherr stand (Number N112) are two "new generation" materials handling machines from the company's comprehensive range of equipment specifically designed and built for recycling, waste management and landfill operations.
The A 934C Litronic
An A 934 C Litronic materials handling excavator is featured on the company's stand with industrial long-reach equipment, hydraulically elevating cab and numerous safety and operational features suited to the multitude of arduous tasks required in scrap metal and waste handling operations. Weighing in at around 37 tonnes, the A 934 C Litronic is powered by a fuel miserly, reduced emmissions Liebherr D 934 L turbo-charged and after-cooled diesel engine developing 150kW - Tier3/level 3A. Fitted with an 8.60m industrial boom, a 7.50m angled industrial stick with a rotating Type 70C grab, solid tyres and four hydraulically operated outriggers for optimum operational stability, the A 934 C Litronic is capable of lifting 7 tonnes to a height of 15 metres at a working radius of 6 metres.
For the best possible operating safety, this materials handler is equipped with a piston rod cover, hoist and boom cylinders with load holding valves, limit switch, travel alarm, additional front and rear lights and a flashing beacon. For the operator, the Liebherr cab is typically functional and comfortable, with full Litronic instrumentation, including a lift chart. The cab itself has hydraulic elevation, giving the operator a line-of-sight of up to 5.47 metres. This is particularly important for working in scrap handling, allowing the operator to have the clearest possible view of both the stockpile and hopper of the scrap metal processing shear or baler. For added safety, the A 934 C Litronic on display also has armoured glass to the cab, plus a top guard grille and front pane protection.
The L 5562plus2 High Lift Waste Handler
The Liebherr L 5562plus2 is an articulated, hydrostatically driven wheeled loader in the 17 tonnes class, with a tipping load of 13,140kg and is one of a range of seventeen wheeled loading shovels from Liebherr. Power is supplied by a Liebherr made engine which develops 140kW and the high-tip bucket capacity is 5.0m³. The L 5562plus2 has a high level, isolated cooling system which is equipped with an automatically reversing fan to maintain radiator cleanliness and efficiency. The hydrostatic driveline system on the loader not only contributes to considerable fuel consumption benefits (around 11 litres per hour on waste handling applications) 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 L 5562plus2 High Lift Waste Handler on display features 3050mm high lift arms which produce a 5.3 metres dump height for easy loading of bulk trailers and waste processors - and with reach to spare. The 4.7 metres pin height of the high lift arm also allows the operator to compact material during the loading process.
Equipment and systems available with this model include automatic fire suppression and weighload system with print out facility. The machine's safety items available are reverse camera, audio reverse alarm, additional working lights and beacons.
