LiuGong Machinery Corp.’s new 877III wheel loader features a 10.8-liter, turbo-charged, electrical-control Cummins diesel engine that is said to deliver extra load-carrying power with its 50-percent torque rise, while keeping fuel consumption to a minimum. A hydraulically driven variable-speed fan cools the engine. A double-pump hydraulic system helps reduce energy loss, keeping power strong and consistent at the bucket. Emergency back-up steering is standard. The machine features a ZF automatic transmission and limited-slip front and rear differentials for improved control and efficiency.
