The Liebherr-Hydraulikbagger GmbH division of Europe-based mobile material handling equipment maker Liebherr is touting its quick coupler system and specialty attachments as optimal tools for different recycling and demolition applications.

The company says its attachments can be used with both hydraulic excavators and material handlers from Liebherr as well as with machines from other manufacturers.

Liebherr says its product portfolio “ranges from quick coupler systems for all applications through digging tools for the earthmoving sector to grabs for diverse applications in material handling technology.”

On the material handing side, the company indicates its attachments “can tackle challenges including hard rock, fine sand or bulky demolition material.” Working with its customers, says the firm, “gives rise to countless variants for the common grabs or buckets, which can be configured to meet customer-specific requirements.”

In applications including timber and port handling, plus waste management and scrap recycling, attachments can be customized to meet the specific requirements of the different applications and “therefore optimize handling capacity,” says the firm.

Liebherr offers different levels of configuration for its quick coupler systems to suit specific applications, the company indicates. “Liebherr’s mechanical quick coupler is the perfect solution when the aim is to increase machine flexibility and productivity while minimizing investment costs,” the firm states.

With its hydraulic quick coupler system, mechanical tool attachments can be switched while the operator stays in the cab, according to Liebherr.
