Liebherr, booth G-4637


The company’s 50,600-square-foot booth will showcase more than 22 pieces of earthmoving, material handling and construction equipment. On display will be X-Power wheel loaders, crawler loaders, crawler tractors, excavators, deep foundation machines, material handlers, tower cranes and mobile and crawler cranes, plus concrete pumps. The company also has an indoor South Hall booth at S-84230, featuring its line of mechanical, hydraulic and electric drive and control components.

XL Specialized Trailers, booth G-2416


The XL 80 Power Tail trailer is designed to transport medium-duty construction equipment, and uses a hydraulic fold-under flip tail ramp for quick loading and unloading. With a load angle of 10 degrees, the hydraulic tail can handle man lifts, rollers, forklifts and paving equipment. The trailer is rated at 80,000 pounds overall and 50,000 pounds within 10 feet.  The tail has a lifting capacity of 25,000 pounds for loads centered on the main platform, and has two sections: and 8-foot 8-inch platform ramp and a 60-inch flip tail. Lug-style hinges prevent debris from accumulating. A hydraulic pop-up ramp connects the deck to the gooseneck, and there’s a foot hole and grab handle on each side of the gooseneck for climbing onto the deck.

Wacker Neuson, booth G-3435


A new line of medium frame skid steers and compact track loaders (CTL) range from 55 to 74.3 horsepower and 6,245 and 8,095 pounds of operating weight. Each of the four skid steer and two CTL models have a universal skid steer attachment plate and a 33-gallon fuel tank.  In the cab, there’s no lap bar, and operators can choose between mechanical hand-foot and selectable electric-hydraulic control options.

Booth activities: Celebrating its 60th year in the United States, Wacker Neuson will have a live show showcasing the company’s newest products, including skid steers and compact track loaders. Visitors can test their skills on the excavator challenge.

Other equipment on display: The booth will showcase concrete, pump, power, lighting and heat equipment, along with wheel loaders, telehandlers, excavators and dumpers.
