Liebherr XPower wheel loaders feature power-split driveline as standard. The manufacturer says this ensures power and efficiency as the transmission performs the same function as the traditional power-split transmission, but with a greater level of efficiency. It combines a hydrostatic drive — which is said to be the most efficient drive in short loading cycles — and the mechanical drive for long distances and driving up gradients. The result is a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 30 percent. In addition, strengthened Z lift arms provide up to 20 percent more breakout force, and the optimized bucket is said to offer improved penetration action.
