New Liebherr machines poised for Intermat 2018

LIEBHERR has confirmed it will showcase a number of new products at this year’s Intermat exhibition in Paris.

Machines on display will include the manufacturer’s new series of stereoloaders. Two smaller Stereoladers® will celebrate their world premiere at the show following the launch of the two larger models – L 514 and L 518 – last summer. The L 514 is described as being suitable for communal services and road construction. The L 518 is designed for industrial use, for example with solid rubber tyres in recycling procedures.

Liebherr will also give a trade fair debut to the A 914 Litronic wheeled excavator from emission stage IV. With an operating weight between 14,900 and 17,200 kg and an engine power of 105 kW/143 hp, Liebherr said the machine “adapts perfectly” for both classic earthmoving and road, sewer and pipeline work.

The R 936 compact crawler excavator will also feature for the first time in France, boasting an operating weight of about 35 tonnes. This model is said to be “ideal” for use in tight spaces.

The successor to Liebherr’s 172 EC-B 8 Litronic flat-top crane will also be presented at Intermat. The jib has been extended by 2.5 metres to 62.5 metres and now lifts 1800 kilograms at the jib head with a radius of 62.5 metres.
