EXCON Special: Liebherr going strong at Excon 2013

BIBERACH/GERMANY, November 13, 2013 - Liebherr shows an excerpt of its construction and mining machines programme including wheel loaders and a flat-top tower crane at this year’s Excon exhibition in Bangalore, India.

At this year’s Excon, the international construction machinery trade fair held from November 20 to 24 in Bangalore, India, visitors to Liebherr’s outdoor stand OD4 can see six exhibits from the earthmoving, material handling, tower crane and concrete technology product programmes: two wheel loaders (L 550 and L 580), one A 934 C Industry wheeled excavator, a 85 EC-B 5i tower crane together with a Compactmix 1.0 A-T R batching plant and a HTM 604+ truck mixer.

Wheel loaders L 550 and L 580

At Excon 2013, Liebherr presents two models of the expanded wheel loader product range for the Indian market. On display are the models L 550 and L 580.
The L 550 wheel loader being presented at Excon 2013, weighing in at 16,800 kg, achieves a tipping load of 11,850 kg. The machine is equipped with a 4.5 m³ bucket. The wheel loader is driven by a 147 kW / 200 HP diesel engine and with its robust design, is ideal for use in the most challenging of conditions.
The L 580 achieves a tipping load of 17,650 kg and weighs in at an operating weight of 24,730 kg. The machine is equipped with a 5.5 m³ bucket and is driven by a 200 kW / 272 HP diesel engine.

Material Handler A 934 C Litronic

From its programme of material handlers, Liebherr exhibits the high-performance A 934 C Litronic at Excon 2013 in Bangalore. It has a service weight of approximately 37 t. The power unit is a robust Liebherr diesel engine with turbocharger and charge-air intercooler, which complies with Tier 3 / Stage IIIA limits. It is of 7,000 cc capacity with a power output of 150 kW (204 hp) available at an engine speed of only 1,800 min-1.
The A 934 C Litronic material handler has a wide support base with large pads for maximum stability. Depending on the working equipment, extremely heavy loads can be raised by up to 17 m and moved out to the same working radius.

Tower Crane 85 EC-B 5i

At Excon 2013 in Bangalore, Liebherr presents the 85 EC-B 5i flat-top crane. This crane model is being assembled at Liebherr's Pune plant since 2012. The 85 EC-B 5i has the potential to exceed the 71 EC-B, currently Liebherr's most popular model in India, which offers widely similar specifications. The 85 EC-B 5i has a maximum load capacity of 5,000 kg and can lift 1,300 kg at the jib end, up to a maximum working radius of 50 m.
When the 85 EC-B 5i was developed, the emphasis was not only on the superstructure but also on the low-width 85 LC tower system, which has been optimally matched to the new crane and has new pin connectors among the many features that qualify it ideally for inner-city operation.

Batching Plant Compactmix 1.0 A-T R

From its extensive range of batching plants, Liebherr presents the Compactmix 1.0 A-T R at Excon 2013 in Bangalore. The compactly designed batching plant is capable of a maximum discharge output of 60 m³ of hardened concrete per hour and is equipped with the tried-and-tested Liebherr RIM 1.0 ring-pan mixer with 1 m³ rated contents or 1,500 liters capacity. The mixing system is available with either a mechanical or a hydraulic whirler system.
The space-saving overall concept and the flexible 180° truck mixer approach angle underneath the plant enables to position the mixer in a relatively small area. Despite the compact construction, all components are within easy and convenient reach. Most of the steel parts are zinc-coated, ensuring excellent corrosion protection and therefore a long working life.
