Visitors to the Liebherr booths at CONEXPO will see more than 30 exhibits on a total exhibition space of nearly 60,500 square feet, including a demo area where Liebherr will host demonstrations for the first time ever in Las Vegas.

Liebherr will feature new products and developments in the construction machine, crane and material handling segments on the Festival Grounds, where a range of new products will be displayed.

The TA 230 Litronic, from the new generation of articulated dump trucks, was unveiled to the U.S. market during Liebherr USA, Co's Customer Day event in May of 2022. The TA 230 Litronic showcases performance, efficiency and comfort, Liebherr states.

Two new material handling machines, the LH 30 M Industry Litronic and the LH 60 M Industry Litronic, are designed for scrap handling. The handling of scrap steel and other metals is one of the toughest applications in industrial material handling which requires high-performance and economical material handlers.

Generation 8 excavators and crawler dozers take centre stage

Liebherr's Generation 8 crawler excavators have proven themselves to be top performers. The R 924 and R 945A feature higher engine power, a larger counterweight in conjunction with higher bucket capacities and increased digging and pulling forces - special characteristics of the Generation 8 crawler excavators compared to their predecessors.

The PR 766 G8 is also premiering in the US. The crawler dozer model, which further expands Liebherr's Generation 8 fleet, comes with an operating weight of up to 119,784 pounds and High Drive, the proven and tested undercarriage for heavy mining applications. As the only crawler dozer with hydrostatic drive in the 117,859 - 119,784 pound (50 t) class, the PR 766 offers maximum efficiency, productivity, and safety.

For the first time in North America, Liebherr is presenting its new medium-sized wheel loaders, which are equipped with a wide range of digital assistance systems. The portfolio of intelligent assistance systems for maximum reliability and safety includes, for example, active person detection with brake assist or the revised Skyview 360 camera system for an optimal all-round view even in poor visibility conditions. Moreover, Liebherr will display several large wheel loaders of the XPower series at the booth. Thanks to their power-split driveline, these wheel loaders are known for their tremendous fuel efficiency.

The concrete technology product segment is launching US sales of an exhibit that combines the most efficient technologies in a compact machine. The new 36 XXT truck mounted concrete pump comes equipped with the advantages of a new five-part folding boom with the Powerbloc drive unit and the semi-closed oil circuit.  

Numerous new cranes make debuts

Liebherr´s mobile and crawler cranes will present the new LR 1400 SX which extends its range of crawler cranes. With a compact transport weight of 50,706 USt (46 t), the complete crane can be transported easily between job sites.

Also in the cranes segment, Liebherr will show the LTM 1100-5.3, which offers a powerful 203-foot (62 m) telescopic boom and carries up to 37,250 pounds (16.9 t) of ballast with a 26,450-pound (12 t) axle load on public roads.

Flexibility and economical worldwide transport also characterize the LRT 1130-2.1: As the most powerful 2-axle rough-terrain crane with longest telescopic boom on the market, this crane is especially adapted to the needs of the U.S. market. Units from the tower crane segment will also be on display.

From the deep foundation machines segment, visitors will be able to experience the LRB 23 piling and drilling rig and the LB 30 unplugged drilling rig at the trade show. These two machines are characterized by maximum reliability and safety thanks to digital assistance systems: Ground Pressure Visualization, for example, calculates the machine's current ground pressure in real time and compares it with the specified safety limits. The Kelly Visualization makes locking the telescopic rails of the Kelly bar much easier. The drilling assistant enables automated drilling during the concreting process.

The product range of Liebherr attachments is specifically designed and customized for the respective application and optimally configured for the machine size. During Conexpo, a range of Liebherr´s attachments will be demonstrated on both, the R 914 Compact Litronic and A 924 Rail Litronic excavators. Liebherr will demonstrate its fully automatic quick coupling system Solidlink during live shows in a dedicated demo area.
