The Liebherr Group now comprises over 130 companies all over the world and has a workforce of more than 46,000 employees. This family-run business is one of the world's largest construction machine manufacturers and, what's more, is also renowned in many other sectors as a supplier of technically sophisticated, user-oriented products and services. Liebherr-Hydraulikbagger GmbH is on the open-air site at LIGNA 2019 in Hannover to showcase a range of specialist machinery for the wood processing industry, including the LH 50 M Timber material handling machine.

The LH 50 M Timber is specially designed for challenging timber handling tasks. It is equipped with a straight, 6.7-meter-long boom, a 4.3-meter-long angled stick and a Liebherr GMH 80 wood grab with a capacity of 2.5 cubic meters. The configuration is rounded off by the LFC 120 rigid cab elevation. A new, clever, space-saving access system with integrated treads and 10° inclination aims to ensure easy access to the cab and enhance safety. Meanwhile, the adaptive mudguards offer maximum splash protection, regardless of the travel direction, thanks to their symmetrical design.

The SCRFilter developed by Liebherr means that the LH 50 M Timber now meets Stage V exhaust emissions limits. Its engine output is 10 kW higher than the previous model and is intended to ensure higher torque and more powerful movement without load peaks. Last but not least, the four-wheel steering of the LH 50 M Timber, which is included as standard, delivers great agility and maneuverability, even in the tight space of a timber yard, while also increasing driving stability and improving directional stability.
