PORT equipment business Liebherr is celebrating what it says is “decisive success” in the Central and South American market, with a number of ports set be equipped with its new reachstackers.

The Liebherr reachstacker relies on a “hydrostatic drive” for many machines.

As well there are less power losses due to the non-existent mechanical power transmission.

“The result is significantly lower fuel consumption while maintaining the same performance,” Liebherr states.


Empornac Guatemala awarded Liebherr a contract to supply and service 20 Toplift Reachstackers as the winner of an international tender.

The operator took into account fuel consumption and driving comfort of the Liebherr hydrostatic reachstacker considering it “unique under the given conditions”.

“For this reason and in addition to an excellent delivery time and quality commitment, they came to the decision that Liebherr offers the most advanced and cost-effective reachstacker,” Liebherr stated.
