Tough World. Tough Equipment
At LiuGong, it isn’t about just developing the latest technologies. It’s about developing the latest technologies that work – consistently, reliably, day in and day out, at the toughest, most extreme job sites.
Precision operation of a skid steer starts with better weight distribution and the LiuGong 385B Skid Steers get it right with better balance, stability and lift control.
The narrow stance and panoramic view combine for superior handling and control in tight quarters between buildings and walls and inside trailers. With a dump clearance height of 2425mm and with a lift speed of 4.1 seconds, dump at 2.4 seconds and float down of 2.2 seconds, they are quick all around.
Tougher Structural Components
LiuGong machines are designed, built and tested for extreme-duty applications. The 385B Skid Steers are no exception. The new integrated monoblock frame provides a solid, rigid foundation for long, hard, productive days. The beefy, box section loader arms match the strength and durability of the frame, make the 385B Skid Steers long lasting and reliable machines for all applications – from high-cycle construction and mining applications to farms, nurseries and ports.
The 385B Skid Steers don’t just look better – they last longer. Many thousands of hours of real-world testing were spent on the development of the new skid-steer, and the result is machines that not only please their customers, but machines that also live up to the strict quality standards that LiuGong mandates.
It’s all Under Control
The 385B features double-lever pilot control for sure, simple, effortless operation. The hydrostatic transmission system provides infinite speed control so operators can inch through critical areas with no extra space, but still travel quickly over large areas. Spring applied, hydraulic release brakes allow the operator to position the machine exactly where needed, and hold it there for pinpoint accuracy on precision jobs. They also have hydraulic self-levelling, especially useful for pallet fork applications.
The universal LiuGong quick-coupling system makes for fast, easy changes with the complete line of LiuGong attachments, plus the 385B can pick up existing attachments, from any suppliers that the customer may already own.
Spacious, Productive Operator Station
The cabs are extra-large and uncluttered – with plenty of leg, elbow and headroom. Controls are intuitive and ergonomically placed for simple, effortless, fingertip control. The large, curved windows and well-placed mirrors eliminate much of the operator twisting and turning you find with other machines. The 385B Skid Steers feature a full suspension seat that is fully adjustable.
The ROPS and FOPS certified structural cab design greatly reduces both vibration and sound levels – for better operator comfort and superior communication between the operator and other personnel around the worksite.
Easy Access for Efficient Maintenance
The large, swing-open tailgate provides convenient access to routine maintenance points in the 385B Skid Steers. There are no radiators to move, lift arms to raise or lift-arm support devices to install. Maintenance ports for the hydraulic system on the 385B have been placed in convenient locations for a quick inspection. The cab can be tilted back up to over 80 degrees to replace the engine oil filter and hydraulic oil filter. Radiator for cooling water and hydraulic oil are located in the front of the machine for easy maintenance and daily check.
Plenty of Options
The 385B Skid Steers come with a range of options to help customers meet their job requirements and performance needs. The list includes high-flow hydraulics, heater, and air conditioning, enclosed ROPS/FOPS Cab, solid tires and tire chains, plus many more.
The company is totally dedicated to reliability – from engineering to testing to manufacturing. And the real test is always the real world where real jobs have to get done.
