Liebherr unveils new LRS log handler at Bauma


At Bauma 2019, for the first time ever, Liebherr is presenting its new LRS log handler to the public.

The robust, reliable and powerful timber-handling machine, located at the show’s Bauma Boulevard next to Gate 15, is capable of quickly transporting logs in industrial plant and timber handling applications.

The LRS LH has a grapple capacity of 8m² (86 ft²) and a stacking height and an outreach of over 8m (26ft) each.

As with all Liebherr reach stackers, the log handler is equipped with a step-less, hydrostatic drive. It is characterized by its low fuel consumption and excellent driving performance.

The log handler is fitted with a Liebherr Pactronic hybrid drive system as standard, which enables a temporary increase in performance without additional fuel consumption and exhaust emissions, if required. The sustainable hybrid drive reduces the Log Handler’s CO₂ emissions, as well as other harmful substances. Fuel saving is achieved through complete utilization of the regenerative energy and surplus power in the system.

Other new features for the log handler include a log pusher, specially designed for timber
handling, as well as a protective structure for the driver cab.
