Wheel Loader – Used for the Recycling of Building Rubble

A Liebherr L 586 XPower wheel loader was recently put into operation at the German Dowideit Recycling GmbH machine park.

The company uses it for recycling building rubble, soil preparation and composting. According to the information, the wheel loader weighs almost 34 tons and has a considerable tip load of 23,500 kilograms. It is in operation for around ten hours a day and consumes an average of 14.8 liters of fuel per operating hour when loading.

Dowideit puts emphasis on safety. Poor light conditions in the operating area pose difficult challenges to wheel loader operators when working. This is particularly the case in winter when shift work begins at dawn and ends at dusk. “To counter this problem, the new wheel loader is equipped with adaptive working lighting,” Liebherr informed. This consists of an intelligent lighting control system, which the provider offers as an option. Do­wideit Recycling GmbH, located in Wustermark (in the state of Brandenburg), is a partner for the civil engineering, demolition, recycling and transport industries.

Furthermore, they have a company branch specializing in the sale of soil material to customers who use the processed materials for road construction and in horticultural and landscaping projects. The new wheel loader plays a central role in the preparation process, Liebherr points out.
