Among which the 886H is the first ever intelligent remote controlled shovel wheel loader, marking a milestone in both LiuGong’s development history and in the industry.

Wheel Loader – 886H

The Cummins QSM11 engine provides dependable power to the LiuGong 886H. Two working modes of Standard and Economic can be switched easily according to working conditions for additional energy-savings. The newly optimized work hydraulic system and power combination increase bucket breakout force and loading capacity. Careful distribution of stress loads improves job efficiency.   

New constant flow hydraulic system, highly efficient, energy-saving and quick responding, it takes any compound actions with ease. Integrated FNR pilot control joystick is easy to operate.

Intelligent throttle control system can automatically adjust the fuel input to optimize the power output and save energy; the intelligent active protection can automatically identify the control status and stop the machine at emergency; the intelligent shoveling system makes the operation easy and reliable.

LiuGong 886H has a 309° panoramic cab and has the largest interior space in the Chinese wheel loader ranges. All key buttons are within reach and the control handle can move with the operator’s seat. At the same time, the fully sealed and micro pressurized cab can effectively reduce dust and noise, creating a safe and comfortable environment for the operator.

The front-flip hood can be opened and closed by hydraulic lifting system, allowing for additional maintenance space; a 360° surround platform design for easy access to all key components.

Last but not least, LiuGong’s 886H is a combination of intelligent remote control and intelligent technology. The 886H is equipped with an intelligent shoveling system. The intelligent loading system senses material penetration; has one bottom loading and dumping; along with bucket auto leveling and controllable placement of the bucket.

Intelligent shoveling enables the machine to do shovel independently as long as the driver controls the wheel loader close to the stack. And the operator only needs to lower its arm to carry out the second shoveling operation.

It also applies the intelligent protection technology to realize automatic identification system and auto emergency stop.

As a result, the machine can not only be used in its normal applications, but also can be widely used in dangerous environment such as rescue and disaster relief. And the remote-control technology made it a perfect match for the tasks in odorous environments or radiation environments. All the operations can be observed from the videos that are sent back by the machine’s cameras and the effective control distance is 2000 meters.

The machine is to launch in domestic market in January, 2019.

Excavator – 990F

LiuGong’s 990F is powered by a Perkins EFI engine with a rated power of 447 kW, combined with a 5.6 m3 bucket, making the 990F highly efficient.

The technology also makes the machine operation smoother and control easier. The machine is customizable to cope with local operating habits for the users of different areas.

The bucket is made of Swedish Hardox wear-resistant steel for a longer service life. Reinforced short boom and arm allows the 990F work harder for longer.

One of the highlights of the machine is the one-foot operation for straight walking. It changes the way of using two pedals together to drive the machine in a straight line. At the same time, the left-right hand pattern change is easy further improving job efficiency.

The cab is designed to protect you operator with FOPS, space to work and reduced noise. With oil-bath pre-filter and LED lights it is capable of working in dusty or dim working environments.

Smart and effective design makes service and maintenance fast and simple – 2 independent cooling fans are reversible for easy cleaning, walkways on both sides of the machine enabling safe and easy access to the upper structure.

Bulldozer – B170DL

The Cummins engine provides stable power to LiuGong’s B170DL bulldozer with three working modes that can be selected: Power (P) / Standard (S)/ Economy (E); meeting different application needs of the customer. The maximum productivity of P mode has increased by 31%, and the minimum fuel consumption of S mode has been reduced by 26%.

LiuGong’s B170DL adopts a modularized transmission system of European technology; the hydraulic system, single handle pilot operation and one-button gear shift allowing for smooth and stable operation.

Designed by LiuGong Industry Design Center in the U.K., the overall appearance is exquisite. B170DL has a spacious cab and the operating visibility is greatly improved from both the front and rear increasing an operator’s blind-free spots more than 10°; the multi-functional display board can show the machine’s conditions at a glance. It also features fresh air ventilation and cool/warm air-conditioner. The ergonomically designed system, high-sealed and micro-pressurized driving cab can reduce noise and dust, making long working hours easy and comfortable.

Operator is safe guarded and protected by ROPS / FOPS. The new fuel tank increases the fuel volume by 20% allowing for longer operation hours.

More configurations and attachments such as laser leveling device are optional for our customers, helping them with various applications.
