Liebherr’s L 580 LogHandler XPower

March 15, 2017 - Based on the XPower large wheel loaders, Liebherr has developed the L 580 LogHandler XPower for the particular requirements of the timber industry. The new XPower generation machine stands out thanks to its wide range of innovative features and the investment made into its sturdiness. Thanks to a special lift arm with major reinforcements, the L 580 LogHandler XPower can cover large working areas with a maximum reach of almost four metres. Productivity is increased by optimised timber grabs that can be adjusted in size for individual applications. The Smooth Speed Reduction system (SSR system) gives the L 580 LogHandler XPower utmost load handling sensitivity. And, just like on the latest Liebherr large wheel loaders, the core component of the machine is the power-split XPower driveline, which equates to robustness and provides optimal performance, high travel speeds and maximum fuel efficiency.
