First footage of new Liebherr loaders

Digger Blogger | 11:28, Wed August 31 2016

Among the 20 or so new machines that Liebherr launched at Bauma earlier this year was a new series of mid-range hydrostatic-drive wheeled loaders.

These machines are now ready for market and the Liebherr factory in Bischofshofen, Austria, will begin deliveries before the end of September 2016, they tell us.

The new L526 (7.7 tonnes tipping load), L538 (9.5 tonnes) and L546 (10.5 tonnes) meet Euro Stage IV/ US Tier 4Final emissions regs (with claimed 25% fuel savings compared to the competition). They have been redesigned with reinforced steel structures and bigger axles, with automatic self-locking differentials for improved traction.

Customers can choose between Z-bar linkage for standard applications and parallel lift arms for industrial applications.

The basic performance stats are:



Tipping load

Bucket content

Operating weight

Engine output
(kW / PS)

L 526




103 / 140

L 538




114 / 155

L 546




123 / 167


But it is probably easier that I just show you these short videos – first a walk-around and then some action footage.
