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 963K Track Loader Features Fuel and Performance Improvements

The Track Loader has long been known as a machine that can do it all on the jobsite, and it is often the first machine that can go to work in soft, wet underfoot conditions. The new Cat 963K offers that legendary versatility, along with a 10-30 percent gain in fuel efficiency and improved performance. The new track loader also offers updated cab and safety features for the comfort and convenience of the operator. The 963K meets U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final/EU Stage IV/Japan 2014 (Tier 4 Final)/Korea Tier 4 Final emission standards.

The 963K is powered by a 193 horsepower (144 kW) Cat C7.1 ACERT engine, offering fuel efficiency improvements over the previous model. An Eco Mode automatically reduces engine speed, but maintains selected ground speed when the machine is under light load. The more efficient engine and the Eco Mode combine to deliver a 10 – 30 percent reduction in fuel consumption compared to the 963D. And efficient use of Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) – typically 2.5 to 3 percent of fuel consumption -- provides excellent overall fluid efficiency.

New CASE 570N EP Tractor Loader

CASE Construction Equipment has introduced the new 570N EP – a powerful yet efficient tractor loader optimized for loader and attachment use in site prep, landscaping, construction and agricultural applications. Weighing in at 11,134 pounds and rated at 74 horsepower, the 570N EP features CASE’s particulate matter catalyst – a maintenance-free Tier 4 Final solution that requires no fluids or filter maintenance. A three-point hitch and variable hydraulics (28.5 gallons/minute at 3,000 psi) help support and power rear attachments, while optional auxiliary hydraulics for loader-mounted equipment add to the machine’s versatility.

The 570N EP is also available with an optional factory-installed PTO (30 horsepower), or an optional PTO-ready hydraulic setup – both of which include a high-torque, low-speed axle for optimal strength and performance. Additional options, such as auxiliary work lights, a fifth-spool auxiliary circuit for the three-point hitch valve and various counterweights add to the machine’s power and performance.

Tier 4 Final 457 Shows Off New JCB ‘CommandPlus’ Cab

JCB is taking the wraps off a striking new wheel loader design – complete with the all new ‘JCB CommandPlus’ cab. The powerful JCB 457 is the first machine to show off the completely new cab structure, engine cover and rear counterweight design, all of which contribute to improved visibility, lower noise levels, increased internal space and an enhanced working environment for the operator.

In addition, the 457 is the first large JCB wheel loader to meet Tier 4 Final emissions standards, with the adoption of a powerful MTU diesel engine that is perfectly matched to the machine’s operating duties. The engine contributes to a massive fuel savings of around 16% compared to the previous model. As with other JCB machines, the engine in the 457 meets Tier 4 Final without the need for a costly diesel particulate filter (DPF), relying on an efficient combustion process, with a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system and an exhaust fluid additive to meet the regulations.
