XPower® is the innovative machine concept for the new generation of large Liebherr wheel loaders L 550 to L 586. Technology and design differ significantly from conventional wheel loaders. Besides creating a strong appearance, the development of the design was focused on functionality and visibility for the driver. Core of the XPower® wheel loaders is the rugged Stage IV / Tier 4f power-split XPower® driveline concept. It brings together the hydrostatic drive for short loading cycles and the mechanic drive for long distances and for driving uphill. The combination of both drives in one wheel loader offers maximum efficiency at every application.
