Liebherr Expands Quick Coupler to Additional Loaders


Liebherr quick coupler

Liebherr is expanding the availability of its fully automatic LIKUFIX quick-change system to additional wheel loader models.

The system is now available for two compact loaders, L 506 and L 508, for the two stereo loaders, L 507 and L 509, as well as for the XPower large wheel loaders up to the L 580. As before, LIKUFIX is still available for the medium-sized Liebherr wheel loaders L 526, L 538, and L 546.

The machine operator can switch, for example, between a hydraulic 4-in-1 folding shovel, a forklift, or a sweeper within seconds at the push of a button. The hydraulic lines are connected automatically.

Liebherr's hydraulic coupling is supported by springs. The forces that act on the quick coupler are therefore not transferred to the coupling system. Even with long periods of use, the connections between the hydraulic circuits remain absolutely tight, the company says.

To make maintenance easier, all moving parts are easily accessible. If necessary, customers can easily carry out cleaning and simple maintenance activities, such as changing, a seal themselves.
