Liebherr has redeveloped its range of mid-sized wheeled loaders. The three models, L 526, L 538 and L 546, in the latest Generation 8 series are said to have a significant increase in performance.

Liebherr says that the newly-designed lift arm ensures maximum breakout, holding and lowering forces. The new series will feature optimised z-bar kinematics and improved working hydraulics, in addition to a range of lift arms for various challenges.

The new series is said to benefit from active personnel detection with a brake assistant or a fully automatic LIKUFIX quick-coupler system.

This optional brake assistance system is to warn the machine operator visually on the display and with acoustic signals of dangers in the rear area of the wheel loader. Liebherr says the assistance system can independently distinguish between humans and objects using smart sensors.

The German-based company have added more powerful engines which provide higher maximum torque at a lower nominal speed. In doing so, Liebeherr believes this will increase efficiency whilst using the same low fuel consumption.
