A new compact loader series from construction machinery giant Liebherr comprises three models which have been optimally coordinated with one another.
The new 4600kg L 504 compact joins the company’s wheel loader range. Liebherr’s smallest wheel loader embodies the qualities of the larger Liebherr wheel loaders while also being an excellent value for the money. With numerous new features, the 4970kg L 506 compact has consolidated its already strong position in the market. As is the case for the L 504, the machine height of the L 506 remains under 2.5 metres, making it easy to transport on a trailer. The new 5700kg L 508 is both larger and wider than both of the other Liebherr compact loaders.
The new compact loaders have robust lift arms with z-bar kinematics, which facilitates the use of a wide variety of attachments. Liebherr has optimised the parallel guidance for safe and precise operation when working with forks. This is critical when transporting palettes with paving stones or decking tiles in garden and landscaping applications. To increase versatility even more, Liebherr offers extended lift arms for the L 506 and L 508 models on request, which enables the loaders to load taller transport vehicles.
To ensure a wide variety of applications, Liebherr offers its fully automatic quick coupler system 'LIKUFIX' for the three compact loaders. LIKUFIX allows operators to change between mechanical and hydraulic working tools from the cab at the touch of a button. This saves time and reduces the risk of accidents as the operator doesn't have to leave the cab when changing the equipment.
Liebherr has improved visibility, the windscreen now reaching into the foot area of the cab. The rear screen is curved on the sides, enabling an unobstructed view of the rear area. The new loaders can be equipped with a backup camera on request, for even more safety when reversing.
Numerous details, such as the clearly arranged control elements and practical storage areas, increase comfort and convenience in the cab. This also applies to the optional mini joystick on the control lever, which is used to control additional hydraulic functions. Optionally available is an infinitely-adjustable steering column; the display, standard on all machines, is also adjustable and located on the A pillar in the cab.
Liebherr’s new compact loaders feature a modern and functional design. The engine bonnet has a dynamic and clean design, with great visibility from the cab. The lift arms have a tapered design, which optimises the view of the attachment and the material. The compact design with a low centre of gravity ensures optimum weight distribution and results in high stability and safe, comfortable operation, day in and day out.
