Liebherr is expanding its series of Generation 6 crawler loaders with the addition of the new LR 626 Litronic crawler loader. The new LR 626 has an operating weight of between 16,130 and 18,600 kg. In addition, the standard bucket has a capacity of 1.8 m³. Its four-cylinder diesel engine also produces an output of 105 kW / 143 HP and complies with Tier 4f emission standards.
The LR 626 crawler loader has electronic drive control with integrated ECO function. This mode allows the driver to lower use of fuel through the reduction of the engine speed. In this way, the ECO control ensures more efficient operation with light to moderately heavy use.
The power adjustment involves constant monitoring of the engine and all other machine aspects. As a result the engine power is automatically temporarily increased according to the current requirements.
Balance in weight distribution is an important part of the design. It serves to maximize the engine power into performance. Thanks to this and the long running gear, the new machine offers an especially high tipping load. This increases the loading capacity. All the new Liebherr Generation 6 crawlers have the touch screen display for Liebherr earthmoving machines. This enables the clear setting of key operating parameters. The driving range pre-selection integrated in the driving joystick means that three different driving speed ranges can be freely programmed. This enables the LR 626 to be optimally adapted to diverse operational requirements.
The LR 626’s predecessor was already setting standards with just one joystick for all driving and steering movements. The LR 626 can automatically ‘turn with opposite chains’ for a sufficient tight turn. This allows the machine to achieve maximum performance.
