Liebherr’s first telescopic wheel loader

Liebherr has revealed its first telescopic wheel loader. The L 509 Tele combines the lift height and reach of a regular telescopic loader with the productive material handling capacity of a classic wheel loader, says its maker.

Based on the Speeder L 509 stereoloader, Liebherr’s new telescopic wheel loader retains the proven stereo steering and can reach a top speed of 38km/h as standard thanks to the powerful hydrostatic travel drive. Its 73hp engine also complies with the emission Stage 5/Tier 4F specifications.

Instead of classic wheel loader lift arms, the new L 509 Tele has an extendable telescopic lift arm which can lift to a height of 4.8m with a fork attachment. Maximum tipping load is up to 3,800kg. Thanks to the integrated Z-bar kinematics the telescopic lift arm enables the operator to load containers and lorries at great heights or stack loading material. When working with a fork attachment, no manual readjustment is necessary, because the Liebherr engineers have optimised the parallel movement during fork operation.
