LiuGong introduces productive, high quality wheeled loader
LiuGong's new wheeled loader takes the firm into a new market
LiuGong is aiming its new 856H wheel loader squarely at the European market. The high performance machine features full EU Stage IV regulation compliance and I said to introduce a new level of productivity and serviceability to the European market. A spokesperson for the firm said, “It’s really a western-design machine.”
Power comes from a Cummins QSB6.7 diesel equipped with proven variable geometry turbocharger technology to optimise torque. It has a high pressure common rail fuel injection system, which also optimises fuel consumption. The engine powers the machine through a ZF driveline system, and the 856H also features a ZF AP3000 axle. The axle housing and main transmission system are reinforced to increase strength and the machine’s carrying capacity has been increased by 40% from the previous model. The ZF 4WG200 transmission is said to work to achieve optimal output. An automatic shift transmission with kick down function and electric proportional FNR lever make operating more convenient. Along with the
The 856H’s new cab design allows for improved visibility to the work tool and improves all-around visibility for safety. The cab features ROPS and FOPS protection in compliance with safety standards, ensuring operator safety is maximised.
As with other LiuGong machines, maintenance of the 856H is said to be simple and convenient. The forward tilting engine hood is equipped with an electric lifting device and allows for ground level access to service points to increase accessibility to components. The hydraulic driving fan motor can be reversed for cleaning, and the water and oil drains are placed together to speed maintenance and service tasks.
