Liebherr releases first telescopic wheel loader
The new Liebherr L 509 Tele telescopic wheel loader combines the lift height and reach of a regular telescopic loader with the productive material handling capacity of a classic wheel loader, combining the benefits of two machine types in a single product.
Developed on the basis of the Speeder L 509 stereoloader, this new telescopic wheel loader retains the proven stereo steering and can reach a top speed of 38 km/h as standard due to the hydrostatic travel drive.
Instead of classic wheel loader lift arms, the new L 509 Tele has an extendable telescopic lift arm which can lift to a height of 4.8 m with a fork attachment. Thanks to the integrated z-bar kinematics the telescopic lift arm enables the operator to load containers and trucks at great heights or stack loading material. When working with a fork attachment, no manual readjustment is necessary due to the optimized parallel movement during fork operation.
