Changing Tools at the Push of a Button

The Likufix quick-change system from Liebherr is now available for large, medium and small wheel loaders. The fully automatic system is an in-house development by Liebherr and well established in the company’s hydraulic excavators. The system has also proven itself in the medium-sized series of wheel loaders in recent years.

“A solution that truly comes into its own in operations involving multiple working tools,” the manufacturer emphasized. The Likufix quick coupler system would allow the operator “to safely and conveniently change mechanical and hydraulic working tools at the push of a button from the cab”.

As reported, Likufix is now available for additional wheel loader models: This applies to the two compact loaders L 506 and L 508, the two stereo loaders L 507 and L 509, as well as to the XPower large wheel loaders up to the L 580. As before, it is still available for the medium-sized Liebherr wheel loaders L 526, L 538 and L 546.
