Liebherr delivers its 100,000th truck mixer
Liebherr has handed over its hundred thousandth truck mixer to Heinz Transportbeton Ingolstadt. Heinz Transportbeton Ingolstadt has been a Liebherr customer for around 45 years, and already has 12 Liebherr truck mixers in their fleet.
The milestone machine is a HTM 905, with the five symbolizing that it is a new generation. Generation 5 offers a host of advantages over its predecessor: The truck mixer empty weight can be reduced by approx. 180 kg, which increases the available payload accordingly. During development, Liebherr paid particular attention to the process of cleaning the truck mixer. Edges that are susceptible to dirt have been rectified and smooth surfaces have been created. The result is a reduced cleaning effort.
The optional Litronic-EMC drum controller from Liebherr controls the diesel engine speed according to need when loading and unloading. The constant speed drive prevents unnecessary drum rotations during the journey. This saves fuel and reduces wear. Furthermore, the Litronic-EMC increases safety by preventing operator errors such as changing the direction of rotation suddenly. In addition, the rear control unit can be switched off during the journey so that unauthorized operation is not possible.
The platform concept in the new truck mixer provides flexible attachment options for accessories. Storage compartments, holders or extension chutes can be installed in various positions. The concrete transfer chute on the new Liebherr truck mixers can be completely swung out to the side without protruding over the outside of the vehicle. This makes discharge into large concrete buckets and access for cleaning work easier. The storage locations are now installed slightly lower on the vehicle in order to make removing the extension chutes easier.
