Developed by Liebherr, the new LiTiU attachment with its protected swivel motor is available as either a direct mounting or sandwich attachment in two different sizes. It announced a new tilt unit, the LiTiU, to increase the functionality of attachments by extending the swing angle. Liebherr says that fixed attachments can reach swing angles of up to 2 x 75 degrees with the LiTiU unit. In addition, hydraulic attachments like sorter grabs, swivel-mounted ditch cleaning buckets, and tilt buckets can be combined with the LiTiU unit for an even bigger swing angle. The unit, which is available in different versions and sizes, is designed for applications where the swing angle represents an extension of the working area.
The new Liebherr LiTiU attachment enables a greater range of applications for wheeled and crawler excavators. Apart from classic excavation works, the machines can be used for leveling and modeling banks, ditch cleaning, demolition, and recycling without the need to reposition the machine or change the attachment. With fixed buckets, the new LiTiU unit lets each fixed attachment become a swivel-mounted unit with increased versatility. Hydraulic attachments can also be combined with the LiTiU unit for an even bigger swing angle as can attachments from other manufacturers such as vibrating plates or mulchers. The LiTiU attachment is available as a direct mounting or sandwich attachment in two different sizes. For direct mounting, the LiTiU 12 or LiTiU 18 is mounted directly to the stick end of the wheeled or crawler excavator.
The connection between the bottom of the LiTiU unit and the attachment is realized either with the Liebherr quick coupling system SWA 33/SWA 48 or the fully automatic Liebherr quick coupling system SWA 33 LIKUFIX/SWA 48 LIKUFIX. With the optional extended hydraulic circuit, the LiTiU 18 unit can also be activated directly to let high-pressure and medium-pressure circuits control the functions.
