Liebherr releases compact and flexible truck-mounted concrete pump

The Liebherr 36 XXT truck mounted concrete pump

Liebherr's new 36 XXT truck-mounted concrete pump combines the advantages of a new quintuple folding boom with a Powerbloc drive unit and a semi-closed oil circuit. Compact assembly with no boom overhang at the rear ensures high manoeuvrability in confined spaces.

The new five-piece boom makes it easy to reach a wide variety of positions on the construction site. The design and kinematics of the boom ensure low-vibration and even work when placing concrete. The machine is also weight-optimized and therefore travels with a total weight of around 26 tonnes on three axles, depending on the equipment. The modern radio remote control allows sensitive boom movements. 

The shape of the charging hopper favours a uniform flow of concrete and enhanced suction. Two separately driven agitators push the concrete directly into the suction area.

A highlight of the new 36 XXT is Liebherr's newly developed Powerbloc pump drive unit. It is characterized by the fact that all hydraulic switching and measuring elements are fully integrated. This eliminates the need for numerous hydraulic hoses and other components previously required. 

The new drive unit is combined with the highly efficient semi-closed oil circuit, which supplies all drives with hydraulic energy. As a result, the oil volume can be significantly reduced.
