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.

CASE Unveils Tier 4 Final 621F and 721F Wheel Loaders

CASE Construction Equipment has announced that its 621F and 721F wheel loaders now meet Tier 4 Final emissions standards. Like the Tier 4 Interim models, each model is equipped with a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) solution that treats emissions separately with Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) and does not require the engine to re-circulate exhaust gas. This proves extremely practical, as it improves fuel efficiency (up to 20 percent greater than previous solutions), lowers exhaust temperatures and fuel consumption, and provides excellent throttle response and simplified maintenance without sacrificing power. It also requires no diesel particulate filter (DPF) regeneration or maintenance – optimizing uptime for greater productivity.

Each new Tier 4 Final wheel loader delivers best-in-class horsepower with a 6.7-liter engine. The 621F and 721F wheel loaders produce 162 and 179 net rated horsepower (121 and 133 kW), respectively. Both machines are also available with XT (tool carrier) or XR (extended reach) linkage and specialty configurations for even greater versatility and productivity.

Two New Doosan Wheel Loaders Provide A Range of New Efficiencies

Doosan DL250-5 wheel loader with bucket.
Doosan DL250-5 wheel loader with bucket.

The Doosan DL250-5 and DL250TC-5 (tool carrier) wheel loaders offer improvements in fuel efficiency, operator comfort, serviceability, reliability and remote monitoring with Doosan Telematics. These models will replace the “dash-3” (interim Tier 4) models with a Tier 4-compliant Doosan DL06 diesel engine. Customers wanting a wheel loader in this size class can choose between a Z-bar loader linkage for the DL250-5, and a parallel lift-arm design for the DL250TC-5. The Z-bar loader linkage is ideal for digging, heavy lifting and general construction tasks. The parallel lift-arm design helps keep items level while the wheel loader is moving.

Wheel loaders work in tough operating conditions where they need to scoop, lift, carry and dump materials. Limited-slip differentials help with these tasks and are standard for both Doosan models. With this feature, the machines have more traction when excavating, grading or loading trucks. To maneuver in tough terrain, the limited-slip differential allows the wheel with the most traction to receive the proper torque, providing superior tractive effort.

Cat M Series Compact Wheel Loaders Offer Operators Adjustable Control Response for Efficient Work

The new Cat M Series Compact Wheel Loaders—906M, 907M and 908M—feature Caterpillar's exclusive Optimized Z-bar loader linkage, which combines aggressive digging power with parallel lift. These models use a 75-gross horsepower engine with an electronically controlled hydrostatic drive system that meets US EPA Tier 4 Final / EU Stage IIIB emission standards. Electro-Hydraulic controls allow for engineering enhancements for the drive system, implement controls, auxiliary hydraulic system and loader linkage. A range of work tools and couplers are available, ensuring optimum versatility and productivity. Valuable options including a high-speed configuration, ride control system and high-flow hydraulics make the M Series Compact Wheel Loaders even more productive in landscaping, agricultural, industrial, snow removal and general construction applications.

The M Series features the Cat C3.3B engine, transversely mounted with excellent service access for routine maintenance items. Single-plane coolers use an efficient hydraulically driven fan or an optional Cat Demand Fan that operates at maximum speed only when required. An ECO mode regulates the engine’s high idle while maintaining full rimpull and breakout force capability - saving fuel and lowering sound levels for the most common tasks where maximum productivity is not required. Exhaust aftertreatment utilizes a diesel particulate filter to achieve emissions standards.

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.
