- Company & Industry News
The Liebherr L 5762plus2 wheeled loading shovel is at the larger end of the 16 model range. Weighing in at just over 24 tonnes and with a tipping load of 17,200kg, this articulated and hydrostatically driven loader is ideal for scrap handling applications and is equipped with numerous features for the specific task. Powered by a Liebherr engine which develops 200kW, the engine induction system benefits from a cyclonic pre-filter which removes 95% of air-born dust particles, thereby prolonging air filter life and, importantly, enhancing engine protection. The machines for Easco have been fitted with extra-heavy-duty Michelin XMINED2 tyres with foam fill to eliminate punctures which can be a frequent hazard on scrap metal handling applications. The operator's cab is typically spacious, luxurious and functional with air conditioning, an air-suspended seat and an extra-heavy-duty screen guard.
For the arduous tasks of pushing and stockpiling fragmented metals, it is important to produce maximum traction while avoiding reduction in tyre life or compromising machine performance. The L 576 has automatic limited slip differentials which reduce wheel spin and possible tyre damage whilst enhancing traction. Additionally, the 4.5m³ capacity buckets fitted to the loaders have side wings attached to deflect frag away from the travel path, which further contributes to tyre longevity.
Easco's L 5762plus2 wheeled loaders have been equipped with a number of optional extras for maximum safety during operation and these include:- Reverse CCTV camera with colour in-cab monitor, reversing alarms, flashing beacons and convex side mirrors.
