LiuGong 856H wheel loader is tailored for the Australian market.

LiuGong’s 856H wheel loader has been tailored for the Australian market, bringing with it half a century of LiuGong technology and innovation. The 856H wheel loader marks the start of a new era at LiuGong, and it introduces a new level of productivity and serviceability to the Australian market.

The 856H is powered by a 162kW (220hp) 9.3L Cummins engine offering improved torque and efficiency from previous models, and includes a 3m3 bucket and 12.5t straight tipping load.

Other key features include closed circuit pumps for hydraulics and steering; larger cab with improved visibility; forward hinged hood for improved access; stack cooling pack for better cooling; and, ground level access for easy maintenance.

Modern ZF technology is applied in the driveline system and the axle housing and main transmission system are reinforced to improve strength and load capacity, with carrying capacity being increased by 40 per cent from the previous model.

It has a long service life, with the average life cycle being increased by 250 per cent from the previous model. The transmission works efficiently with the machine to achieve an optimal power output, and an automatic shift transmission with kick down function and electric proportional FNR (Forward-Neutral-Reverse) lever make operating more convenient reducing operator fatigue. All of this, with world-class parts, ensures the 856H maximises productivity for the customer.

The 856H’s cab design allows for improved visibility to the work tool and improves all-around visibility for safety. Frequently used controls are placed within easy reach of the operator, and curved glass in the cab decreases sound levels, and a constant temperature function can adjust the temperature automatically.

The cab features ROPS and FOPS, which ensure that operator safety is at a maximum.

Maintenance of the 856H is simple and convenient. It adopts a ground maintenance idea, which means that users can accomplish the replacement and checks of various filters and fuels by standing on the ground without climbing up and down. The forward tilting engine hood is equipped with an electric lifting device, which alleviates the need to manually open the engine hood, which will prevent any WH&S issues occurring. It also allows for ground level access to service points to increase accessibility to components, thus reducing daily and scheduled service times while increasing the machine’s availability to work. The hydraulic driving fan motor can be reversed for cleaning, and the water and oil drains are placed together to realise easier, faster maintenance and service.
