Wheel Loader L 550
At the trade fair Liebherr exhibits the wheel loader L 550, an example of its expanding wheel loader product range for the Chinese market. Due to the hydrostatic driveline, the L 550 is – like all Liebherr wheel loaders – very fuel efficient, consuming up to 25 percent less fuel compared with conventional wheel loaders under the same conditions. The optimum weight distribution of the machine increases the productivity at work, because larger buckets can be used to handle more material with each loading cycle.
The Liebherr wheel loader L 550 on display is powered by a 140 kW / 190 HP diesel engine. Its exhaust emissions are below the limits of the Chinese regulation GOU III and in Stage II / Tier 2. The optimum weight distribution combined with a wide range of attachments for different applications supports businesses to benefit from increased productivity during daily operation. Thus especially by using larger buckets compared to other type of wheel loaders in the same class.
Based on decades of experience in producing and developing wheel loaders, Liebherr manufactures wheel loaders for the Chinese market in Dalian, P. R. China, in close cooperation with the wheel loader competence centre in Bischofshofen, Austria. Liebherr’s wheel loaders for the Chinese market are high-performing machines: Designed according to the company’s high quality standards, Liebherr wheel loaders operate reliably – even in the toughest conditions.
Crawler Excavator R 966
The 70-tonne class R 966 is also among Liebherr’s exhibits at Bauma China. Its optimized hydraulic system together with intelligent operating modes allows it to work at maximum productivity, whether in earthmoving or quarry operations. It features a V8 diesel engine with high torque even at low speeds. Additionally, it is equipped with a Liebherr bucket and tooth system, which guarantees easy penetration and simple extraction, where digging and breakout forces of 308 kN and 354 kN ensure fast and efficient working cycles. The R 966 proves its versatility with its various attachments and optimized kinematics.

Mobile Crane LTM 1300-6.2
The Liebherr LTM 1300-6.2 on display in Shanghai is the successor to the time-tested LTM 1250-6.1. Its telescopic boom has been extended by 6 m to 78 m. Its load capacity has also been increased. One the one hand it is designed as a simple folding jib crane whilst on the other it is the smallest luffing jib crane on the market providing crane operators with a low cost entry point into the luffing jib crane class. A unique concept for the superstructure drive unit has been used on the LTM 1300-6.2. Instead of the twin-engine concept normally used on cranes in this class, the 300- tonner is powered by a single engine with a mechanical shaft. A mechanical shaft ensures particularly high efficiency and thus guarantees the economy of the new concept in terms of fuel consumption.
At Bauma China 2018, Liebherr presents itself as a components manufacturer for the tunnel construction segment. The focus thereby lies mainly on the new gearbox series and electric motors, which are presented to the trade public for the first time in Shanghai (China).
Components by Liebherr have been proven themselves in tunnelling projects around the world for several years now. For example, slewing bearings with a diameter of up to 9,000 mm, which keep turning cutterheads in India, Africa, the UK and China. Also axial piston units have shown their value in tunnelling applications. Liebherr hydraulic pumps are used, for example, in medium-sized tunnel boring machines for hard and soft rock with a diameter of up to six meters.
All individual Liebherr components are characterised by their particular robustness, reliability, availability and long life expectancy. They are perfectly matched to each other according to customer requirements and can therefore be used as an integrated drive system, for example for the cutter head in tunnel boring machines. With the exhibited system, Liebherr also demonstrates the possibilities for system solutions in this area.
