What’s New In Plant & Equipment
Liebherr’s L538 Wheel
• Highly versatile machine
• Increased productivity with Liebherr Electronics
• High fuel economy
World of Concrete participants got a close look at
the new L538 Wheel loader from Liebherr
Construction Equipment Co.
The L 538 on display featured a Z-bar linkage for
standard operations, achieves a tipping load straight
of 22,485 lb (10,199 kg) at an operating weight of
29,000 lb (13,154 kg) and is driven by a 154HP (l) /
115 kW. This loader is equipped with a 3.14 yd
) quick hitch re-handling bucket with bolt
on cutting edge.
The wheel loader belongs to the new generation of
mid-size range loaders, most commonly referred as utility
size. These size loaders are highly versatile machines
suitable for a multitude of applications.
They can be used in a traditional capacity, to stockpile
or move earth/materials, or can be used to handle all
types of construction material through the use different
Increased productivity with
The implementation of energy efficiency technologies
such as the hydrostatic drive combined with the Liebherr
Power Efficiency system (LPE), optimizes the interaction
between drive components.
This system is able to adjust the performance and
power for every working situation, enhancing the effi-
ciency of the wheel loader and providing additional fuel
savings up to 25% according to Liebherr.
An additional contributing factor to fuel economy is
the configuration of the machine and the positioning of
The engine is used as natural counterweight. The
center point of gravity of the drive line components is
behind the rear axle to avoid unnecessary additional
counterweight. Less operating weight has to be carried
around, therefore, less horse power is required.
Subsequently, less fuel is consumed.
