The LH 40 M has an operating weight of 84,800 to 85,680 lbs. (38,000 to 38,850 kg). The LH 60 C tracked industrial handler’s industrial stick measures 23.9 ft. (7.3 m).

The Liebherr LH 40 M and LH 60 C handling machines combine comfort, performance and reliability to provide customers greater efficiency and low operating costs. They deliver a new level of economy as the result of their high load capacities and reach, according to the manufacturer.

Specially developed for material handling, both machines also comply with the requirements of Tier IVi/stage IIIB emissions regulations.

High Performance at Maximum Comfort

Efficiency comes standard on the LH 40 M and LH 60 C. Both are equipped with the Liebherr energy recovery system (ERC) as standard. The additional hydraulic cylinder helps to increase the handling capacity while reducing fuel consumption. The machine features Liebherr power efficiency system (LPE), which optimizes the interaction between the drive components and therefore increases the efficiency and optimizes the engine’s power output.

The newly-developed operator cab provides the space and comfort needed to use the full capacity of these machines. The operator’s seat comes standard with air suspended seat, a heating system and lumbar support.

Reliable and Efficient Operation

The diesel engine, hydraulic components, electronic components, slewing ring, slewing drive and steel structure are developed, tested and produced by Liebherr. These components are designed to provide long service life and maximum machine availability.

The Liebherr energy recovery system reduces fuel consumption by up to 25 percent while promoting faster and consistent operating cycles for increased handling capacity. The engine’s particulate filter allows for compliance with Tier IVi/stage IIIB emissions regulations. Service-based machine design assures quick servicing times, minimizing maintenance costs and down times. These Liebherr-designed systems reduce emissions and operating costs.

Equipment Options Support Versatility

The versatility of Liebherr handling machines is not only demonstrated by its wide range of equipment, but also by the attachments available. The latest generation Liebherr attachments are available for applications such as scrap metal, bulk goods, timber handling, and sorting. These attachments can be easily and conveniently changed in matter of seconds using the optional, fully-automatic quick change system. The operator does not have to leave the cab to exchange attachments. The result is an increase in productivity by up to 30 percent, according to the manufacturer.
