Liebherr Equipment in Africa

Construction equipment are purpose-built machines used on a construction site. Basic functions such as digging or carrying large loads are often needed for construction purposes. Other aspects, such as off-road ability, may also form part of the picture. Therefore, vehicle of specialised design are required. These machines are designed to operate optimally in the construction environment. Whether it has a rear-mounted engine to improve front lift stability, or a raised cabin to improve operator visibility, every construction vehicle is uniquely optimised.

Liebherr is a manufacturer of such vehicles. Their brand is internationally recognised and stands for quality and efficiency. Liebherr offers a myriad of industrial machinery to choose from, including a selection of construction vehicles. Kanu Equipment is a supplier of Liebherr equipment in Africa, where the construction industry has always been thriving. But construction in Africa is also very challenging; therefore, having the right machinery on your side will work to your benefit. Today, we will have a closer look at Kanu’s selection of Liebherr construction vehicles.

Liebherr Construction Vehicles

Construction vehicles gives you access to different functions that can assist you in a construction project. For example, Liebherr’s range of crawler loaders can be the ideal workhorses for earthmoving and digging jobs. Running on crawler tracks, these machines can easily travel over most surfaces without getting stuck. This gives them the advantage of reaching most locations with ease. Liebherr’s crawler loaders are hydrostatically driven, with their diesel engines mounted at the back of the vehicle. As a result, the loader is heavier in the rear, which stabilises the front end of the vehicle for optimised bucket operation.

Kanu offers three Liebherr crawler loaders to choose from, starting with the LR 624 Litronic. This machine has an operating weight of between 16,89 and 18,55 t, depending on the load being carried by the front bucket. The engine produces 105 kW to grant enough power and torque to efficiently do its job without fuss. The front bucket capacity goes up to 1,8 m³, with a maximum travel speed of 10 km/h. Its biggest brother is the LR 634 Litronic. This machine has an increased bucket capacity of (up to 2,4 m³), with a higher power output of 129 kW.

Kanu Equipment also offers other Liebherr construction vehicles. Wheeled loaders and excavators make for very useful earthmoving and construction equipment. Liebherr’s range of wheeled excavators offers useful digging tools and operating functionality for engineering purposes on construction sites. These machines are useful for specific tasks that require precision and finesse. They are also viable options for use in landscaping and water management.

Liebherr also offers wheel loaders in this category. These loaders feature large front-mounted buckets for earthmoving purposes. They are cost-effective to run as well, thanks to their efficiency; they consume up to 25% less fuel than some of their rivals from other manufacturers. Kanu Equipment offers a wide selection of Liebherr equipment in Africa. Our website contains all the details on these industrial vehicles. Contact us today with any further enquiries. Kanu Equipment can provide the necessary industrial equipment to take your business in Africa to the next level.

Wirtgen Equipment from Kanu

Mining and construction are both very demanding industries for fleet machinery. The machines these industries use are designed to fulfil certain functions on site. Accordingly, their specialist functions mean they come in weird and wonderful designs. Commonly, these machines must deal with a range of earthmoving and excavating tasks.

For construction and mining, compacting machines are also very useful. When compacting a surface, a strong foundation is created with the compacted surface material. Wirtgen offers a selection of compactors that can perform this task efficiently. Compactors are commonly used for road-construction purposes. They are also used for compacting surfaces on construction sites after excavation. Compactors do their job with large front- or rear-mounted rollers that push down on the surface beneath. These large rollers exert a great force, compacting the surface to reduce any possible movement. Once the surface area is compacted to meet the specified requirements, construction can start. Today, we will delve into some detail on Kanu’s selection of Wirtgen compactors.

As mentioned before, compactors can be used for many different applications besides compacting surfaces for road construction. These machines can also be used to compact rocks and smooth out uneven terrain. Kanu Equipment offers a selection of Wirtgen surface compactors that can perform this function. Wirtgen’s Hamm compactors feature a compact body design with a front-mounted roller drum. We offer a selection of three models in this range, starting with the H20i. This machine has an operating weight of 20 t and a roller drum with a width of 2140 mm.

It is available in two additional variants, namely the H20i P and H20i C models. Both these models are slightly different from the standard H20i, each meeting specific application requirements. Kanu also features a selection of other Wirtgen equipment. Staying with mining and construction sectors, we offer Kleeman mobile screen plants that are ideal for mining applications. This range includes double- and triple-deck vibration screening units to fit your business’s requirements.

Finally, Kanu offers the mobile Wirtgen Surface Miner. This crawler-track machine has a unique body design to cater for its wide range of functions. The 4200 SM Wirtgen surface miner has a cutting width of 4200 mm, as the name suggests. It features a conveyor system with a cutting depth that reaches up to 650 mm. The engine produces more than 1100 kW to ensure that this large machine can perform effective surface mining.
