LiuGong introduces new excavators and wheel loaders
By Jenny LescohierFebruary 09, 2022
LiuGong has refreshed its 856H and 890H wheel loaders and 913FCR and 922F excavators, bringing to market a lineup that’s said to emphasize high tech and fuel efficiency with an eye toward the quarrying and mining market.
“These machines showcase LiuGong North America’s commitment to the quarrying, aggregate and mining segments,” said Chris Saucedo, senior vice president, strategy & customer solutions, noting the introductions kick off a series of 20 new products coming to market in 2022.
The 856H Stage V wheel loader is the fifth-generation product in the 856 line. Weighing in at just over 41,000 lbs, it features a Cummins EU Stage V-approved, 6.7-liter (1.8 gal.), six-cylinder, straight turbocharged diesel engine that has a maximum output of 245 hp, which is a 5% increase coupled with a 31% increase in torque over the previous model, reports indicate.
At just over 68,500 lbs., the 890H large wheel loader features the latest fuel-efficient Cummins engine, has a net power rating of 351 hp at 1,800 rpm and fully complies with EPA Tier 4 Final emission standards without compromising on power or performance, according to the company.
New to the North American market later this year will be the 913FCR and 922F excavators. The 913FCR falls in between the 909 and 915 midi-excavator range, while the 922F is slightly bigger than the 915 midi-excavator and a bit smaller than the large excavator line.
In related news, LiuGong introduced the 856E MAX Intelligent Remote Control Electric wheel loader last summer, a model designed to offer low energy consumption, low noise and high performance.
