eDaily: Liebherr L 586 2plus2 Wheel Loader

May 01, 2008

Liebherr’s L 586 2plus2 wheel loader is and has a tipping load of 45,040 pounds, making it the largest hydrostatically driven wheel loader in the world. Trading on its 25 years of experience building hydrostatic wheel loaders, the company claims its drive systems reduce fuel consumption as much as 25 percent, compared to mechanical-drive machines; reduce tire wear by 25 percent; and experience virtually no brake wear. It is powered by a 340-horsepower (at 1,800 rpm) Liebherr D 936 L engine, a significant reduction in horsepower for this class of loaders due to the hydrostatic drive. The 71,838-pound unit wields a standard 7.8-cubic-yard bucket.
