Liebherr has delivered a new LRS 545 Reachstacker to Bothra Shipping Services Pvt Ltd at Kakinada Port. The new Reachstacker is being used at Bothra Shipping Group’s busy port for container operation predominantly for the stacking of containers inside the terminal. Bothra Group opted for a Liebherr Reachstacker because of the smooth handling features and the high total economic value of the machine.

Low total cost of ownership

The LRS 545 is designed for highly responsive operation to allow high performance in a relaxed manner. The innovative individual drive concept ensures that, a hydraulic motor independently drives each wheel. Not only is this a more compact solution, it reduces tyre scrubbing and thereby increases tyre life. The reduced wear and tear of the tires strongly contributes to low total cost of ownership. By removing the mechanical gearbox element, the drive of the machine from acceleration to braking is smooth and step less, which provides added sensitivity at low speeds and increases driver comfort.
