LiuGong’s extensive range of wheel loaders has established a global reputation for durability and reliability. The new 856H wheel loader is a stand-out addition to the range, developed to meet the needs of the European market and its strict emissions standards.“The 856H embodies LiuGong’s determination to adapt to the needs of all markets, conditions and customers worldwide”, says Linjun Wang, Senior Sales Manager for Europe. “It complies in full with EU Stage IV emissions regulations and is designed for extreme to light conditions across mining, energy, quarry, sand, earth moving, coal and other environments.”
Ready for Europe, ready for anything
The 856H draws on all LiuGong’s 50 years of experience and commitment to engineering in the shape of machines that are easy to own, easy to operate and easy to maintain. The result is a rugged, reliable machine with an Operating Weight of 17,800 kg and a Standard Bucket Capacity of 3.3m that can tackle anything at any time.
Cummins engine and ZF axles with slip limited differential
The 856H is powered by a Cummins QSB6.7 engine that delivers a powerful combination of high performance and low fuel consumption even in extreme conditions. This is supported by a New ZF powertrain of 4WG200 (F4/R3) gearbox and wet axles. With four forward gears and three reverse gears, the transmission is optimised for balance and responsiveness in all operating conditions. Situated front and rear, the ZF wet axles ensure maximum traction and less slip even on the soft and muddy terrain.
Fresh thinking and fresh air
The 856H incorporates a contemporary new LiuGong design language that provides comfort and productivity for the operator. It is certified FOPS/ROPS and provides a state-of-the-art and low-noise environment with a Grammer vertical and horizontal air suspension seat and adjustable steering column.
Within easy reach of the operator are the finger-controlled joysticks and forward, reverse and kickdown functions. There is also a rearview camera, heated mirrors, a large storage area, and a large curved front glass for superior visibility.There are four viscous silicon rubber mounted shock absorbers, and the air recycling ventilation system ensures a non-stop supply of fresh air inside the cab. AC is equipped with eight outlets for rapid temperature control, and the easy-to-replace air filter prevents coarser dust and particles from entering the cab.
Load sensing makes sense
Operability is further enhanced with LiuGong’s Intelligent load sensing hydraulics. The Rexroth piston pumps supply power to the working functions based on demand ensuring fast response, smooth operation and reduced fuel consumption. A further example of LiuGong’s forward-thinking R&D is its investment in advanced analysis tools for dynamics and stiffness simulation. This capability ensures strong structures and an extended machine lifetime.
Easy maintenance for more uptime
All LiuGong wheel loaders are designed to keep working day after day, week after week, month after month. The 856H therefore features an SKF automatic greasing system and remote pressure checking points. The cooling fan is driven by hydraulic motor to ensure the regular temperature of the core components, and the electrically controlled reversible function blows air in the opposite direction for effective self-cleaning performance. Maintenance is also made easier with LiuGong’s ground maintenance principle, which means that users can check and replace of filters and fuels while still standing on the ground. With the 856H, LiuGong has taken another significant step forward its long-term objective of designing and constructing outstanding wheel loaders that meet the specific operational needs of hard working customers in all markets worldwide.
