Liebherr launches new quick-change system for wheel loaders

LIKUFIX is now available for a large number of Liebherr large wheel loaders, such as the L 556 XPower.

Liebherr is increasing the availability of its fully automatic LIKUFIX quick-change system for additional wheel loader models.

LIKUFIX is now available for L 506 and L 508 compact loaders, for XPower large wheel loaders up to L 580, and for L 507 and L 509 stereo loaders. As before, LIKUFIX is still available for the medium-sized Liebherr wheel loaders L 526, L 538 and L 546. In North America, only large- and medium-sized wheel loaders are currently available. 

Quick and safe equipment changes when operating a wheel loader

With LIKUFIX, the machine operator can switch, for example, between a hydraulic 4-in-1 folding shovel, a forklift or a sweeper within seconds at the push of a button. The hydraulic lines are connected automatically and reliably with LIKUFIX which means no valuable time is lost.

Working with hydraulic tools such as high dump buckets, buckets with hold-down devices, log grapplers or separator buckets is typical for larger Liebherr wheel loaders. This is why Liebherr also offers its fully automatic quick-change system for larger wheel loader models. 

LIKUFIX makes it possible for the machine operator to easily change these and other tools at the push of a button from the cab. This increases safety, because when changing equipment, there is no need to leave the cab and therefore no risk, for example, of going out into the site traffic at a recycling yard.

Thanks to LIKUFIX, efficient and safe switching between different hydraulic working tools is possible.

The LIKUFIX quick change system is prepared for tough requirements. The hydraulic coupling is supported by springs. The forces that act on the quick coupler are therefore not transferred to the coupling system. Even with long periods of use, the connections between the hydraulic circuits remain absolutely tight. 

To make maintenance easier, all moving parts are easily accessible. If necessary, customers can easily carry out cleaning and simple maintenance activities such as changing a seal themselves.
