The new, 30,574-lb. 842IV Z-bar production class wheel loader is the first in LiuGong's wheel loader line-up to feature EPA-compliant Tier 4 Interim engine technology. Power is provided by a 193-net peak hp Cummins QSB6.7-C200 6-cylinder, four-cycle turbocharged, water-cooled diesel. The ZF 4WG200 4/3 automatic shift transmission with a single-stage, three-element torque converter transfers that engine power to provide a breakout force of 30,574 lbs. Travel speeds range from 26.2 mph forward and 16.5 mph in reverse.
The automatic boom kick-out/return-to-dig feature enables fast cycle times for loading using the standard 3.5-cu.-yd. general-purpose bucket with reversible cutting edge. An optional quick coupler accommodates included 60-in. forks, and a multi-purpose valve with auxiliary piping provides power to other attachments. The Z-bar linkage configuration provides optimal digging capacity. The static tipping load rating is 25,640 lbs. straight and 22,311 lbs. in a full turn. The standard ride control system and single lever pilot controls reduce operator fatigue and allow more efficient loading operations.
