Find Liebherr in the Festival lot at booth #F5258 and in South Hall of Las Vegas Convention Center at booth #84321

Liebherr’s innovative products will be on display at Conexpo-Con/Agg 2020. Liebherr is showcasing an extensive selection of earthmoving and construction equipment at its outdoor booth #F5258 at the Festival Grounds. The company’s product range of components for mechanical, hydraulic and electric drive systems will also be on display in the south hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center at booth #S84321.

Two machines of the product range, R 926 and R 938, will be exhibited for the first time in America at the Liebherr booth. The highlights of the new crawler excavator generation include higher engine power, a heavier counterweight for higher bucket capacities, and minimal fuel consumption. A new equipment concept with a modified piece at the top of the boom is an innovative new feature. This leads to better performance and equipment forces with reduced operating weight of the machine. Another feature is the optimized load curve, which yields reduced fuel consumption.

Two new cranes for the American market: the LTM 1650-8.1 mobile crane and the LR 1800-1.0 crawler crane. The LTM 1650-8.1 is designed to deliver maximum performance. The new Liebherr mobile crane has large shoes to fill as it is the successor to the best-selling large crane of all time – almost 600 units of the LTM 1500-8.1 have been delivered to date. The successful concept of the two telescopic boom versions is continued – the LTM 1650-8.1 is available with 177 ft and 263 ft (54 and 80 m) telescopic booms.

The new LR 1800-1.0 is currently the most powerful crawler crane on the market with a basic machine 9,7 ft (3 m) wide. It is particularly rigid as a result of its increased design height. A quick connection to raise the superstructure for transport is standard.

The Liebherr LTM 1650-8.1 mobile crane is designed to deliver maximum performance.

Liebherr will present four wheel loaders at the show. This includes an L 566 XPower® with power-split travel drive. Liebherr installs this drive as standard on its large XPower® wheel loaders. It combines short loading cycles with optimal hydrostatic drive with the mechanical drive, the benefits of which come into effect over long distances and up hills. The L 566 XPower® is also equipped with numerous new assistance systems, which Liebherr is showing for the first time in North America at the exhibition. These include active personnel detection, adaptive working lighting, an integrated tire pressure monitoring system and the weighing system with Truck Payload Assist.

The largest Liebherr wheel loader, the 71,870 lb (32,6 t) L 586 XPower®, will also be at the exhibition stand. With a power split XPower® drive, it delivers high performance and enormous fuel savings. The L 538 represents the Liebherr medium-sized wheel loader range. It is equipped with parallel kinematics for high holding forces in the upper lift arms area. It is ideal for working in heavy-duty industrial applications such as in recycling with high dump buckets.

Liebherr will also present the 340 EC-B of the new Flat-Top series. Three of the eight units are equipped with fibre rope which has a four times longer service life than steel rope and enables fibre cranes to work with a significantly higher load capacity. Further, handling is noticeably easier compared to steel rope. In addition, all cranes are optimized for assembly and offer more comfort to the crane driver. The 340 EC-B has a maximum radius of 256 ft (78 m), a maximum lifting capacity of 26,450 lb (12 t) and a maximum hock height of 301 ft (84,7 m).

The Liebherr A 920 Litronic wheeled excavator on exhibit at the show has an operating weight of 40,300 - 47,000 lb (18.3 – 21.3 t) and an engine output of 129 kW / 175 hp. The powerful Liebherr wheeled excavator is particularly suitable for road, canal and pipeline construction.

Liebherr is introducing its latest Generation 8 dozers with the new PR 736. The PR 736 is powered by a newly developed Liebherr diesel engine belonging to the EVO series (160 kW / 217 hp). It meets emission level Tier 4f, its exhaust gases being cleaned by a combination between a diesel oxidation catalyst and a selective catalytic reduction and particle filter. Alternatively, customers in lower regulated markets have additional engine versions and equipment levels to choose from.
