LiuGong Introduces New Wheel Loader

PTP070119 LiuGong“The shift from ‘made in China’ to ‘created in China’ has inspired LiuGong to accelerate innovation in science and technology with the aim of becoming an industry leader,” said Guang’an Zeng, chairman, LiuGong Group and LiuGong Machinery, in remarks made earlier this year at the bauma trade show in Munich, Germany. The 61-year-old company’s vision is to be a top 10 global construction equipment manufacturer.
In keeping with that vision, LiuGong North America (LGNA) introduced its new 877H wheel loader, a high-production machine, to fill the gap between its 856H and 890H wheel loaders.

The new machine has a Cummins QSL9 engine, generating 331 hp. With an operating weight just over 54,000 lb. and a bucket size of 5.5 cu. yd., the 877H is positioned to fill the needs of the most common “rock and dirt” bucket applications, including in the aggregate industry.

The 877H transmission and axles are manufactured in Germany, then imported to factories in China for assembly.

“This is another wheel loader like our 890H unit, engineered to work in those applications that require a wheel loader to work at least 8 hours a day, five to seven days a week,” said Hugo Chang, LGNA product manager.
