Liebherr Maritime has expanded its reachstacker product line by two new devices at the TOC Europe event in Rotterdam.
A reachstacker with the lifting capacity of 35 tonnes in the second container row and a log handler for timber handling will complete the existing product family.
The LRS 545 – 35 lifts 35 tonnes in the second container row and the LRS 545 Log Handler with a grapple capacity of 8.2 m².
The new Liebherr LRS 545 Log Handler’s telescopic boom allows for an unrivalled range of up to 8.5 metres and a stacking height of up to 8.9 metres.
Another advantage is the possibility of log handling below ground level.

Liebherr Maritime has also announced the extension of the load capacity by the LRS 545 – 35.
The new reachstacker is capable of lifting containers weighing up to 35 tonnes out of the second row.
Liebherr Maritime has reported that it was possible to develop a more powerful reachstacker without changing the chassis of the common LRS series.
To extend the safety aspect during operation, Liebherr has developed the new Topview Camera System, which is an optional feature available for all device types of the LRS 545 series.

The Topview System offers the driver a rear and side view from a bird’s eye perspective, without any blind spots.
Due to the composition of three camera images, the footage covers the complete rear area at an angle of 270°.
Eric Colditz, Liebherr Sales Director for Reachstacker, said: “Since 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.”
