Liebherr LH 30 M, LH 60 M Material Handlers

The high-performance of the LH 30 M Industry Litronic is demonstrated through its handling capabilities in various applications.

Wed April 05, 2023

With the LH 30 M and LH 60 M Industry Litronic material handling machines, Liebherr has presented two models specifically designed for scrap handling.

The handling of scrap steel and other metals is one of the toughest applications in industrial material handling. When it comes to material handling, especially when loading and unloading trucks and ships, loading shredder conveyors or sorting out different kinds of metals, robust, reliable, high-performance and economical material handlers are required.

Liebherr rose to these challenges by producing machines designed for the toughest requirements, the company said. These machines are extremely efficient and economical due to in-house Liebherr components specifically developed to meet the application requirements, making Liebherr material handlers optimally prepared for every working situation.

In-house parts and components such as injection systems, hydraulic cylinders and electronics are tailored to match each other, contributing to increased efficiency.

Redefined Performance: LH 30 M Industry Litronic

The LH 30 M Industry Litronic with an operating weight between 58,400 to 64,200 lb. features versatility and demonstrates maximum handling capacity in all applications. The optimally designed engine power of 190 hp also allows for high torque for powerful and fast movements.

The separate hydraulic pump in the closed slewing circuit only supplies hydraulic fluid to the swing mechanism. The maximum delivery volume is therefore always available for swiveling the uppercarriage, making fast and overlapping movements.

The substantial cooler with large mesh guarantees excellent cooling of the machine at full power, ensuring a longer service life, according to the manufacturer.

Quality in Every Detail: LH 60 M Industry Litronic

With an operating weight between 121,300 to 134,500 lbs., and an engine output of 258 hp, the LH 60 M Industry Litronic is designed for heavy-duty scrap handling.

The hydraulic cab elevation, which can be adjusted for different loading situations, gives the operator an optimal view of the working area. Cameras are installed as standard to allow optimal monitoring of the rear and sides of the machine, increasing work safety. The perfect overview provides a feeling of security and ensures safe handling of the machine at all times.

Wide non-slip steps, gangways and platforms allow easy access to all maintenance points and ensure safe entry and exit. In combination with the foldable left arm console, entry and exit into and from the operator's cab is particularly convenient.

Equipment such as cab protective grid, impact-resistant laminated safety glass and piston rod protection for cylinders are specifically developed for the use in scrap handling and guarantee maximum reliability in the toughest conditions. The material handling machine is equipped with the Liebherr ERC System (energy recovery system), that gives the machine a boost in terms of performance and saves fuel. This results in significantly greater material handling performance as well as improved machine economy, the manufacturer said.

Right Solution for Every Application

The two material handlers offer a diverse range of equipment and are optimally configured for the application.

To increase machine productivity in industrial and material handling applications, Liebherr offers a broad selection of attachments such as special multi-tine grapples for many different applications.

The Liebherr quick coupling system available as an option, increases the utilization of the machines by up to 30 percent. With the fully automatic quick coupling system Solidlink, attachments can be exchanged easily and conveniently from the operator's cab at the touch of a button. It connects the machine and attachments quickly and safely to form a powerful unit.
