Liebherr presents material handlers for diverse applications at bauma 2022Published 3/10, 2022 at 10:58
At bauma Liebherr will showcase three material handler representatives for different application areas. The ‘LH 22 M Industry’ is ideal for use in tree care; the ‘LH 26 M Industry E’ can be used in recycling and scrap handling, whilst the ‘LH 150 M Port E’ is also equipped with an electric drive with a new, mobile gantry portal undercarriage.
Whether it is for logging roads, working on slopes and embankments, clearing roads or felling problem trees, Liebherr material handlers in combination with the right attachment can be optimally used in tree care and the timber industry. At bauma, Liebherr will present the LH 22 M material handler as one representative with a wide selection of perfectly matched attachments both from Liebherr and the cooperative venture partner Westtech. Equipped with the fully hydraulic quick coupling system ‘Likufix’, attachments from both companies can be changed quickly, comfortably and safely from the operator's cab. Using the latter, the operator can easily change to another attachment, such as the Liebherr SG 25 sorter grab, also showcased at the trade fair.
Material handler with battery operated ‘Mobility Kit’
The Liebherr LH 26 M Industry E material handler is ideal for recycling and scrap handling. High machine availability is ensured with the innovative recycling package including a reversible fan, while the radiator and protective grid can be blown by the reversal of the fan's direction of rotation. The separate position of the climate condenser maximises the air stream in the radiator and fan unit to provide a high level of reliability even in very dusty conditions. It combines tried and tested technology with a new electric drive concept which is low maintenance, quiet and independent of legal emission standards. The core of the machine is the 90kW electric motor which allows powerful, dynamic work movements with low maintenance costs and low noise emissions. Moreover, the drive concept includes an additional electric motor for auxiliary consumers, providing purposeful power distribution and maximised energy efficiency. Sophisticated frequency converter technology allows the engine speed to be individually adjusted to the respective use of the machine.
The machine comes with a battery operated Mobility Kit for temporary operation independent of the mains. It is easily accessible on the upper carriage and supplies the machine with electrical energy when disconnected from the power supply. The LH 26 E on display is configured with a 6.60m straight boom and a 4.50m stick with tilt geometry. It is fitted with a Liebherr SG 25B sorter grab with a capacity of 0.75m³ and perforated shells with a width of 1,000mm. This model also features the height adjustable hydraulic operator's cab.
Liebherr LH 150 M Port E electric material handler
The Liebherr LH 150 M Port E material handler is specifically designed for handling bulk goods and general cargo in ports. It is equipped with an electric drive and has an operating weight of around 165t. With the 400kW electric motor it can reach an overall system capacity of 614kW together with the ‘ERC system’ (electrical drive concept) to deliver low maintenance, quiet operation, and is designed to be environmentally friendly and independent of exhaust gas regulations. The trade fair exhibit is equipped with a new mobile gantry portal undercarriage which enables it to be relocated quickly and easily. Thanks to the modular design, the customer can choose a clearance width between 4.5m and 9.0m and a clearance height between 5m and 6.5m metres. The exhibit at bauma is equipped with a 16.5m long, angled boom and a 15m long straight stick. The fully automatic ‘MH 110B’ quick coupling system allows attachments to be changed quickly, comfortably and safely from the operator's cab. The ‘GMZ 120’ clamshell bucket with fill volume of 8m³ and the Liebherr ‘GMM 120-5 multi-tine grapple’ with fill volume of 3m³ rounds off the configuration. Another highlight is the height adjustable double articulated hydraulic operator's cab that can be moved forward for comfortable entry and exit. With the flexible eye point, the machine operator always has an optimal view of the working area, which boosts the productivity of the machine.
