Liebherr enhances ultra-class mining trucks

Liebherr is continuously improving its ultra-class mining trucks

The Liebherr T 284

The Liebherr T 284

The latest product upgrade for the T 264 mining truck results in a higher payload capacity of 240t (265 short tons) compared to the previous model. To maintain performance and increase productivity, the T 264 offers multiple engine options with power ratings up to 2,013kW. This allows customers to move more material in less time, while supporting the additional weight of the increased payload.

The new front wheel design and upgraded braking system offer quicker reaction times to increase safety for operators, particularly when traveling downhill. The upgraded wheel motors and rear gear ratio boosts torque and acceleration to provide similar cycle times with 10% increased payload. This truck is best matched with the Liebherr R 996 B (four passes) and Liebherr R 9800 (three passes) mining excavators.

Existing T 282 C and T 284 mining trucks can also be retrofitted for increased payload and production capacity. Now capable of hauling additional payload to reach a total capacity of 375t, this improvement allows maximisation of productivity, with the added benefit of enhanced compatibility with Liebherr's R 9800 mining excavators in a five pass match.

Liebherr provides its customers with a choice of engine options. Tier 4 solutions are designed to reduce emissions and satisfy global requirements, and Tier 4 final is already available on the T 264 and T 284 trucks.

The new Liebherr Mining Data (LMD) online portal offers real-time insights and data regarding performance and availability of mining trucks. This OEM solution software offers a single dashboard for improved fleet management of Liebherr mining trucks, so that customers can track key performance indicators (KPIs) and generate custom reports.

LMD now comes standard with all new Liebherr ultra-class mining trucks, and the hardware kit is available as a retrofit for the T 282 C generation mining trucks. Liebherr stated that providing end-to-end solutions for machine data monitoring and analysis is one of many ways in which the company continues to improve and add value for all customers.

A few benefits of LMD include detailed application analysis and optimisation, increased safety, reliability and machine uptime, with reduced maintenance, repair time and cost through actionable insights.
