Liebherr launches new truck mixer
Published by Lucy Stewardson,
Liebherr has announced that the HTM 1205 T/LTB 12+4 truck mixer as a semitrailer is now part of its range. The new semitrailer concept is flexible and has the option of a telescopic conveyor belt, which brings time savings to the construction site. Manoeuvring is no problem, even on narrow ground, due to a rear steering axle.
The new truck mixer combines flexible application possibilities with a high payload. The newly engineered 12 m3 mixing drum has been designed for optimum distribution of the axle loads, and thus optimum economy.
The company’s telescopic conveyor belt has been established on the market for 15 years. Until now, the conveyor belt variant was only available for fixed-mounted truck mixers. From now on, the belt is also available in conjunction with a semitrailer and a mixing drum. In addition to concrete, other materials, such as sand, gravel, grit, screed, etc., can be distributed directly on the construction site. The material arrives immediately at the right place without a crane or wheel loader, which saves time and money.
The semitrailer supplements the vehicle fleet at peak order times and has a high payload. At low order levels, the tractor can take on other tasks, for example driving a cement silo semitrailer or a bulk material tipper. If the maximum payload is required, the conveyor belt can also be uncoupled and parked in just a few minutes.
On the semitrailer’s tractor, the last axle is designed as an electronically-controlled steering axle, ensuring optimum manoeuvrability, both on the road and at the construction site. Due to its narrow turning circle and ideal handling, even construction sites in narrow city centres can be accessed. Reversing onsite or at the mixing plant is easy, as the steering axle can also be controlled manually, via a remote control in the driver’s cabin, instead of an automatic mode. The new variant as a semitrailer with a conveyor belt is well suited to ready-mixed concrete plants.
