New L 586 XPower for Meyer Erdbau GmbH & Co. KGPublished 2/12, 2020 at 14:06
Meyer Recycling GmbH recently acquired a special wheel loader for its internal operations. The L 586 XPower, with just joystick steering, is now being used recycling building materials.
At the company's recycling site in the west of Berlin, the subsidiary of Meyer Erdbau GmbH & Co.KG recycles building materials for use in construction projects. Here, the new emission stage V-compliant L 586 XPower is in operation filling screening plants and loading trucks with processed material. “Around 30 trucks arrive at our recycling site every hour. With the L 586 XPower, our machine operator only needs two loading cycles to fill a truck,” explains the company's founder and managing director, Dipl.-Ing. (FH) Thomas Meyer.
In addition to its power split travel drive, standard in all XPower wheel loaders, the new wheel loader uses the new joystick steering for Liebherr wheel loaders. It allows the machine operator to comfortably steer using short movements on the ergonomic joystick. The position of the joystick always corresponds to the respective articulation angle of the wheel loader. The force feedback on the joystick ensures the best possible driving and operating experience.
In addition to the new excavator, the company has a modern fleet of around 60 construction machines at its disposal for recycling building materials, including numerous Liebherr machines. “The high level of service quality from Liebherr is an important reason for us to regularly invest in products from Liebherr,” says Thomas Meyer.
