Generation 8 Litronic ADT has an empty vehicle weight of 54,200 pounds

Model TA 230 Liebherr articulated dump truck has been redesigned. The Generation 8 Litronic ADT has an empty vehicle weight of 54,200 pounds and a payload of 61,800 pounds. It can carry up to 23.67 cubic yards.

The 360-horsepower engine delivers up to 35.4 mph, 9.9 mph in reverse.

The powershift transmission has been positioned under the cab, and the exhaust gas aftertreatment is behind the cab, allowing for a large hood slope angle.

The redesigned, solid articulated swivel joint allows independent movements of front and rear end. The positive-locking swivel joint has a tapered roller bearing for resistance to shear stresses and optimal force distribution, according to the company.

For maximum ground clearance, the Liebherr ADT has front axle suspension with A-rods and shock absorbers at the articulated swivel joint and separate and oscillating A-rods of the rear axles at the rear end.

The diesel engine is paired with an automatic 8-speed powershift transmission, actively controlled longitudinal differential locks, and automatic traction control. As soon as slip occurs at an axle, the torque is transferred to the axle or axles with traction.

Numerous improvements to the dump bed include a straight front and low sills so that loading with a wheel loader is possible across the entire length. A standard weighing system shows the current payload during the loading process on the display in the operator’s cab. An optional loading light on both sides at the back of the operator’s cab shows the loading level outdoors. The inner edges of the dump bed are tapered.

The ADT’s cab offers unobstructed and panoramic views through the front windshield, as well as a view of the driving area while working and articulating the machine. A touch display with integrated rear camera also increases visibility in the rear area.

The modern assist systems include hill start assist and speed assist. With the hard stop function, the end position damping of the dump bed lifting cylinders can be activated or deactivated at the touch of a button. The dump bed lift is limited for work in a height-critical area with the aid of the height limit.

The adaptive steering system continuously adapts the ratio of the steering movements to the current speed.
