Liebherr has released a range of XPower® L 550, L 556, L 566 and L 576 wheel loaders, which are now available in an optional tunnel version.
The new tunnel package includes a number of features aimed specifically at optimising the robustness of these machines. This ensures high standards of safety and machine availability for tunnelling applications.
The new tunnel package for includes a special soundproofed cab design that boasts a windscreen made of armoured glass. It also offers a roll over protection system (ROPS) and effectively protects machine operators from falling objects (FOPS), which is key in tunnel construction.
In the Stage IV / Tier 4f emission standards compliant XPower® wheel loaders, exhaust gas after treatment is handled by the Liebherr SCR system. The tunnel package enhances this reliable system with the addition of a diesel particle filter, which minimises the emission of particles and contaminants in tunnels.
