Celebrating its 60th Anniversary this year, LiuGong has launched several new products to meet a wide range of applications. Among them is the 886H, the company’s first-ever intelligent remote controlled shovel wheel loader.
The 886H represents a combination of intelligent remote control and intelligent technology. The intelligent shovelling system enables the machine to shovel independently as long as the driver controls the wheel loader close to the stack. And the operator only needs to lower its arm to carry out the second shovelling operation. The intelligent loading system senses material penetration, has one bottom loading and dumping, along with bucket auto levelling and controllable placement of the bucket.
The 886H also features the intelligent protection technology to realise automatic identification system and auto emergency stop. As a result, the machine can not only be used in its normal applications, but also can be widely used in dangerous environments such as rescue and disaster relief. And the remote-control technology makes it ideal for the tasks in odorous environments or radiation environments. All the operations can be observed from the videos that are sent back by the machine’s cameras and the effective control distance is 2,000 m.
The Cummins QSM11 engine provides dependable power to the LiuGong 886H. Two working modes of Standard and Economic can be switched easily according to working conditions for additional energy-savings. The newly optimised work hydraulic system and power combination increase bucket breakout force and loading capacity. Careful distribution of stress loads improves job efficiency.
New constant flow hydraulic system, highly efficient, energy-saving and quick responding, it takes any compound actions with ease. Integrated FNR pilot control joystick is easy to operate. The intelligent throttle control system can automatically adjust the fuel input to optimise the power output and save energy.
The 886H has a 309° panoramic cab and according to LiuGong, it has the largest interior space in the Chinese wheel loader ranges. All key buttons are within reach and the control handle can move with the operator’s seat. At the same time, the fully sealed and micro pressurised cab can effectively reduce dust and noise, creating a safe and comfortable environment for the operator.
The front-flip hood can be opened and closed by hydraulic lifting system, allowing for additional maintenance space. The machine also features a 360° surround platform design for easy access to all key components.
The 886H wheel loader is expected to start its launch in China in January 2019.
In addition to the new wheel loader, LiuGong has introduced five other new machines including the 990F excavator, B170DL bulldozer, 4180D motor grader, TC800C5 truck-mounted crane and and S935 sugarcane harvester.
Note: More detailed information on LiuGong’s new machines will be published in the upcoming Jan/Feb 2019 issue of Southeast Asia Construction.
