Mazeau Recyclage welcomes a new Liebherr LH 80 M High Rise materials handler

  • Designed for heavy materials handling in the scrap metal, timber and port transhipment sectors
  • LH 80 M High Rise, a machine tailored to our client’s specific needs
  • Up to 35% fuel savings compared to the previous model

Mazeau Recyclage was looking for a new materials handler to improve the site’s productivity and reduce boat loading times. This one is an addition to the existing Liebherr A 944 C HD High Rise Litronic handling machine. The LH 80 M High Rise is being used in the Paris region for materials handling tasks at Mazeau Recyclage’s Gennevilliers centre.

Gennevilliers (France), 5th November 2021 – Satisfaction with its partnership with Liebherr since 1998, especially the responsive after-sales service from our Paris agency, led this Paris-based company to opt for a Liebherr machine once again. The LH 80 M High Rise enhances a pool of about thirty Liebherr machines used for demolition and recycling. Stage V-compliant and with an operating weight of over 90 tonnes, this materials handling machine can produce 230 kW/313 HP of engine power.

More productive and cost-effective

The LH 80 M High Rise from our industrial range is designed for handling heavy goods in the scrap metal, timber and port transhipment sectors. The Liebherr mobile undercarriage offers great stability for safe and precise work, as well as a better view of the working area, in the high-rise version with lifting tower.

A large 5.5 tonne lifting capacity makes the LH 80 M High Rise more productive. It has a reach of 21.5 m, which is 1.5 m (20%) longer than that of the A 944 C HD High Rise delivered to Mazeau Recyclage in 2008. That machine has run up nearly 18,000 operating hours to date.

The LH 80 High Rise’s hydraulic elevation allows a maximum viewing height of up to 9.8 m, increasing the handler’s versatility and thus offers best visibility conditions as well as a greater flexibility by adapting to the different loading situation. Joystick control, with no steering column or wheel, offers the LH 80 High Rise’s operator better visibility. The cab has a sliding door for safe and easy access.

Thrift and high performance

Equipped with an energy recovery patented system on its boom cylinders and a new, simpler engine, this Liebherr materials handler stands out for its cost-effectiveness. It produces more power while at the same time achieving up to 35% lower fuel consumption than its predecessor.
