The new vertical lift VL80A loader from LiuGong, shown at ConExpo offers a heavier tipping load, high dump height and longer dump reach compared to similar-sized radial lift loaders. The vertical lift, Z-bar loader arm design also allows you to get closer to trucks for loading
The new loader has a 162-horsepower, Tier 4 Final, QSB 6.7 Cummins engine and a new ZF 210 gearbox with four forward and three reverse speeds and wet axles. Load sensing hydraulics and a VL80A Rexroth pump power the working functions and deliver power on demand.
The full-turn tipping load is 39,000 pounds and the operating weight is 44,000 pounds. A rearview camera, heated mirrors and a large curved windscreen complement the FOPS/ROPS cab.
