Liebherr Updates L 550 and L 556 XPower Wheel Loaders

In the five years since their debut, Liebherr’s XPower large wheel loaders have established themselves as forerunners in terms of fuel efficiency and stability. Liebherr is now updating two models in the series – the L 550 XPower and L 556 XPower. To further boost performance, Liebherr has reinforced the lift arms and overhauled the working hydraulics. Innovations also include increased tip load, breakout force and engine power.

The Liebherr L 550 XPower and L 556 XPower wheel loaders are used primarily in industrial operations such as in waste disposal. Paper handling, bulky metal scrap and refuse slag pose a particular challenge to a machine fleet. Mark Walcher, product manager at Liebherr-Werk Bischofshofen GmbH, explains:

“We remain in close contact with our customers and understand the tough conditions at landfill sites and recycling centres. With this in mind, we have purposefully invested in the performance and versatility of our two wheel loaders as part of our model updates.”

The two performance-optimized models are now available to order from all Liebherr sales partners.
