Liebherr material handlers get their speed not from power, but from precision. Operators can move materials faster because the LH22 is responsive, manoeuvrable and offers the maximum control available from diesel-driven hydraulic equipment.
On site, this means an operator can remove a gas bottle or fire extinguisher from a stockpile without getting out of the cab.
The material handler can also be used for sorting, with the LH22 purchased by Enviro Recycling equipped with a specialist sorting grab. This means unprecedented levels of precision.
"You can pick a piece of string out of a pile with the sorting grab," explained Liebherr's Australia's experts.
Another often forgotten element of speed is downtime. Liebherr-Australia offers 24/7 on site support to all its customers. Further, solid fill tyres as standard eliminate blowouts.
This is critical for a machine which works 14 to 20 hours a day.
Accidents happen when operators are unaware of danger. So to maximise safety there must be maximised operator awareness.
As material handlers have a hydraulic cab, operators are able to see over stockpiles, barriers and into trucks when loading. This removes the need for a spotter, exiting the cab or blind dipping into material stockpiles. When stopped, outriggers guarantee a safe working platform.
Meanwhile, all Liebherr equipment meets the stage IIIB / Tier 4i emissions standards, meaning less particles and toxic emissions. This becomes critical when working in indoor environments.
It may soon also be a legal requirement, with the NSW EPA currently consulting to adopt these standards for all on site diesel equipment.
Beyond being more fuel efficient, safety is the most important feature of Liebherr's material handlers. This is because capital equipment is just a tool to support the most important resource recyclers have - people.
