Liebherr L 506 C and L 508 C Compact Loaders

The Liebherr Compact Loaders represent an entirely new machine concept. The L 506 C und L 508 C combine high performance with maximum safety and extreme versatility on all kinds of task. Both models are exceptionally low in height, at less than 2,500 mm. The L 508 C with its 49 kW (67 hp) engine is the only compact loader with centre-pivot steering in this performance category to have such a low overall height.

The excellent versatility of these models opens up many additional applications, for example in road building, drainage, forestry and agriculture and in the service of local authorities and communities. The frequent changes of operator and workplace constraints associated with such operating tasks present no problems.

The new Liebherr Compact Loaders are an addition to the existing range of stereo, medium-size and large wheel loaders.

An excellent all-round view and straightforward controls

The driver’s cab is comfortably equipped, with an above-average window area. The operator of the Compact Loader has an unobstructed view of the power tools or working attachments, and the well-positioned rear and side mirrors for good all-round visibility. The conical-pattern lifting gear improves visibility even further; the driver can react quickly to any situation arising close to the machine. This guarantees maximum possible protection for people in the vicinity, the equipment and the load.

The controls in the operator’s cab are ergonomically laid out for intuitively correct operation; they can be individually adjusted by the operator for reduced fatigue and maximum performance. This ease of operation enhances both productivity and safety. The Compact Loader’s operator can concentrate fully on the task in hand and devote full attention to working and manoeuvring movements.

Excellent weight distribution for optimal productivity

The Compact Loader’s reduced height automatically lowers its centre of gravity. Its tipping load limit and stability, even on uneven surfaces, are higher. The well-matched relationship between operating weight and tipping load is another productivity bonus for these machines. For optimal force distribution, the lifting cylinder is centrally located on the tapered lift arm.

Accurate parallel movement of the working equipment is the key to exceptionally fast and precise work: loads are positioned and lifted reliably without manual correction or loss of material. If a fork is fitted, a payload of more than two tonnes is available.

High mobility – rapid readiness for work

Thanks to the low headroom it needs, the Liebherr Compact Loader can easily reach its working location even if access is restricted by tunnels or underpasses. It can also be carried without difficulty on tipper vehicles) or in a high-cube container. If moved on a conventional transport vehicle, the maximum height does not exceed four meters. Mobility is enhanced by the machines’ lightweight construction, which in normal circumstances does not exceed the statutory weight limit.

A big range of ex-factory add-on options is available to equip the Compact Loaders for a variety of different tasks.With the easily operated quick coupler, add-on attachments can be installed and removed rapidly and effortlessly.

High-performance equipment, easy maintenance

The L 506 C Compact Loader weighs only 5,180 kilograms and has a tipping load of 3,450 kg. It has a standard 0.8 m³ bucket and is powered by a 45 kW (61 hp) diesel engine.

With a operating weight of 5,600 kilograms, the L 508 C Compact Loader has a tipping load of 3,850 kg. It has a 1.0 m³ standard bucket and a 49 kW (67 hp) diesel engine.

Easy access to all maintenance points and radiators/oil coolers is another factor that boosts the productivity of the new Liebherr Compact Loaders.

New Cat 994K Wheel Loader Features Increased Payload, Power and Productivity—and Lower Cost per Ton

The new Cat 994K Wheel Loader is Caterpillar’s largest wheel loader and handles significantly greater payload compared to its predecessor, the 994H. The result is fewer passes required to load large mining trucks, higher productivity and lower cost per unit of material moved. The standard 994K carries 45 tons (40.8 tonnes) per pass, and the high lift version moves 42 tons (38.1 tonnes) per pass—18 percent and 20 percent more, respectively, than the previous model.

The 994K loads mining trucks in the 250, 200 and 150 short ton classes in one less pass than the previous model. The high lift configuration is a six-pass match with the popular Cat 793 mining truck, and the high lift as well as the standard configuration loads the Cat 789 in five passes. The standard configuration loads the Cat 785 in four passes. More engine power, increased hydraulic flow, greater breakout force and rimpull, and improved lateral stability contribute to high productivity.

Doosan Wheel Loaders Boast Improved Fuel Efficiency, Operator Comfort, Serviceability and Remote Monitoring

Doosan has introduced its first Tier 4-compliant wheel loaders — the DL300-5, DL350-5, DL420-5, DL450-5 and DL550-5 — with a horsepower range of 271 hp in the DL300-5 to 379 hp in the DL550-5. Improvements in fuel efficiency, operator comfort, serviceability, reliability and remote monitoring with Doosan Telematics are all features that make the new Doosan wheel loaders stand out from other brands.

The five new Doosan wheel loader models replace the previous interim Tier 4 (iT4) models and are powered by Scania diesel engines. The engines are optimized for use with a high-pressure common-rail (HPCR) fuel delivery system and a cooled exhaust gas recirculation (CEGR) system. They utilize a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) to reduce particulate matter (PM) and selective catalyst reduction (SCR) aftertreatment to reduce nitrogen oxides (NOx) — the same technology used to achieve iT4 compliance in this size class. Additionally, the wheel loaders use a variety of aftertreatment systems as part of the Tier 4 compliance, such as diesel exhaust fluid (DEF), which is used with SCR technology and stored in a DEF tank.
