LIEBHERR has launched eight new telescopic handler models available in a total of 26 different versions with lifting heights ranging from 6 metres to 10 metres.
The machines are classified into two model lines: the high-end S range, designed for materials handling or production applications and a range of cost-optimised models for stacking and lifting applications.
The new generation of telescopic handlers use Deutz diesel engines that comply with Stage IV/Tier 4f emission standards.
Those telescopic handlers with a displacement of 4.1L also have diesel particulate filters, which are offered as an option for engines with a 3.6L displacement.
They also benefit from a complete redesign of the working hydraulics with high performance hydraulics as standard on the S range.
The new telescopic handlers are available in 20, 30 and 40 km-per-hour versions and the infinitely variable hydrostatic drive produces a maximum traction of up to 70 kN, depending on available engine power.
Liebherr’s hydrostatic drive results in wear-free braking and ‘Liebherr hill assist’, installed as standard, ensures safety and maximum driving comfort when travelling over uneven ground thanks to automatic parking brake activation.
As well as the Liebherr quick coupler, quick couplers compatible with CLAAS, Manitou, Kramer, JCB and Volvo machine hitches are also available, meaning customers can use existing tool attachments.
Application-specific user requirements were crucial design criteria for the new telescopic handlers. The new design guarantees excellent all-round visibility or high productivity and optimum safety.
The spacious cab has improved ergonomics to maximise comfort for operatives with further options available ex-works.
A wide range of additional options allows the new telescopic handlers to be configured for customers’ specific applications.
