Liebherr Feature
Centre of Excellence for Wheel Loaders: Liebherr- Werk Bischofshofen GmbH
HUB-4 recently went along on a dedicated press visit to the Liebherr Bischofshofen site to take a look at the high-tech production facility for Liebherr’s extensive range of wheeled loaders. The site set amongst the beautiful Austrian countryside in Bischofshofen near Salzburg has over 1,100 employees, covers an area of 170,000m2 and was Liebherr’s first Austrian facility founded in 1960.
The site is specialised in the development, production and international marketing and sales of Liebherr wheel loaders. The company is also responsible for the marketing and service of all Liebherr construction machinery in Austria.
Powerful product range with four wheel loader categories
Liebherr stands out among international competition thanks to its innovative and ever more sophisticated product range. Liebherr-Werk Bischofshofen GmbH currently offers wheel loaders in four different categories: Compact loaders, Stereoloaders, mid-size wheel loaders and large wheel loaders of the XPower® generation.
The XPower® concept developed at the site for the Liebherr large wheel loaders L 550 XPower® to L 586 XPower® sets
standards when it comes to fuel efficiency, performance, durability and comfort. The heart of the XPower® wheel loader is its power-split driveline, which Liebherr installs as standard in these machines. This combines the hydrostatic drive, perfect for short loading cycles, with the mechanical drive, whose advantages are clearly apparent over long distances and during ascents. The combination of both drive types in one wheel loader ensures maximum efficiency and therefore enormous fuel savings, no matter what the requirements.
