The recycling industry is growing rapidly and changing at the same pace.
According to Liebherr, many waste disposal companies have developed from generalists to highly specialised recycling operations.
This has brought with it a whole new set of challenges to be met by the machines used in the recycling industry.
Liebherr acknowledges this and develops machines and equipment options for every need and application. The company manufactures many different components, including but not limited to engines, fuel injection systems and hydraulic cylinders, which have to be optimally configured for each other. Liebherr believes this diverse componentry experience allows it to offer extremely capable yet efficient machines.
Even when developing these components, the requirements of future applications are taken into account to ensure that Liebherr specialised machines are optimally prepared for every feasible working situation.
Liebherr material-handling machines are used for a wide variety of tasks in the recycling and waste management sector. Mobile material-handling machines, crawler material handlers, wheel loaders, dozers and crawler loaders all aim to sort, separate and load recyclables and solid waste quickly, reliably and efficiently. These materials include glass, metal, wood, paper and agricultural waste.
The new generation of Liebherr material handlers are adept at a wide range of tasks: feeding a conditioner or crusher, loading and unloading trucks and containers, sorting materials and waste products and piling up and moving materials of any kind.
