Efficient LRS 545 Log Handler
Sophisticated design and proven quality standards make the new Liebherr LRS 545 Log Handler a hallmark of reliability. With up to 30 tonnes lifting capacity and a maximum grapple capacity of 8.2 m², the new Log Handler from Liebherr sets standards when it comes to timber handling performance. The telescopic boom allows an unrivalled range of up to 8.5 metres and stacking height of up to 8.9 metres. Another advantage is the possibility of log handling below ground level.
Ever since the market launch in June 2015, all the devices of the LRS 545 series have been among the most innovative ones on the reachstacker market. The decisive factor above all is the unique drive concept of the Liebherr reachstackers, the hydrostatic drive. This concept is a high-end solution developed by Liebherr and has already proven itself in over 70,000 Liebherr wheel loaders. It enables a number of unique advantages over competitive products, e.g. maintenance- and wear-intensive parts such as differential and torque converters can be saved. Furthermore, the hydrostatic drive combined with the extremely economical 230 kw Liebherr diesel engine provides possible fuel savings of up to 30% compared to the market average.
To extend the safety aspect during operation, Liebherr developed the new Topview Camera System, which is an optional feature available for all device types of the LRS 545 series. The innovative Topview System offers the driver an excellent rear and side view from a bird’s eye perspective, without any blind spots. Due to the logical composition of three camera images, the complete rear area is covered by the system at an angle of 270°.
The new LPS 420 E
The new LPS 420 E is the latest extension of the Liebherr mobile harbour crane product range. The newly designed machine is a purely electric driven portal crane. All crane movements like luffing, hoisting, slewing and travelling are done by electric motors. As the LPS 420 E is a member of the LHM series, it is also characterised by high modularity. Therefore, it is a universal allrounder and a key asset for handling every type of cargo, from containers to bulk, general cargo and heavy lifts up to 124 t. The forward looking machine is designed for ports and terminals with an electrical infrastructure. Equipped with two winches, each with a powerful
190 kw electric motor, the LPS 420 E provides a maximum load capacity of up to 124 tonnes.
With a turnover of up to 1,200 tonnes per hour, the new Liebherr LPS 420 E electric crane exceeds the average turnover of comparable electric driven cranes in the market. With a maximum outreach of up to 48 metres, ships with a size of up to Panamax class can be served.
With up to 30 cycles per hour, the LPS 420 E is the perfect solution when it comes to container handling. Ship sizes up to post-panamax class are ideally servable for the LPS 420 E. The operator of the new LPS 420 E can rely on very dynamic electric motors. Furthermore, the low moment of inertia ensures a fast response of the motor for precise drive characteristics. Due to the high motor speed spread no gear shifting between normal and heavy load is required.
The LPS 420 E is especially optimised for terminals with a power supply ranging from 380 V to 460 V. Thanks to the Liebherr active-front-end frequency converter deviations in the voltage supply can be compensated easily for safe and stable operation. Due to the critical conditions, like limited space and harsh environmental conditions, a liquid-cooled and highly efficient multi-drive frequency converter system was implemented. The compact unit ensures a high power storage capacity, which enables the accumulation and supply of 200 kw of power within 15 seconds.
