Liebherr enlarges reachstacker portfolio

The Liebherr Reachstacker LRS 545 handling containers.

Liebherr Maritime has expanded its reachstacker product line by two devices: A reachstacker with the lifting capacity of 35 metric tons in the second container row and a log handler for timber.

Three years ago, Liebherr Maritime presented the first prototype of the Reachstacker LRS 545. Now two further products have extended the series with the LRS 545-35 and the LRS 545 Log Handler with a grapple capacity of 8.2 square meters.

“In the last three years, we collected an enormous amount of valuable feedback from our customers. The operators praise particularly the stepless and gearless driving characteristics of our devices repeatedly. Thanks to the individual wheel drive and the excellent panoramic view from the driver’s cab, our reachstackers are well-known for their high mobility and all-round visibility, even on terminals with narrow container rows,” said Eric Colditz, Liebherr Sales Director.

All the mentioned advantages of the predecessor models can be found in the new LRS 545-35 and Log Handler. The proven cab design and the slim wedge shape also offer a particularly safe and pleasant driving experience in the new devices.

To extend the safety aspect during operation, Liebherr developed the new Topview Camera System, which is an optional feature available for all device types of the LRS 545 series. The innovative Topview System offers the driver an excellent rear and side view from a bird’s-eye perspective, without blind spots. Due to the logical composition of three camera images, the complete rear area is covered by the system at an angle of 270°.
