The LeTourneau L-2350 is the largest wheel loader in the world! The LeTourneau L-2350 is part of the mining product range of the world’s largest underground mining specialist Joy Global, which acquired Le Tourneau in May 2011. New features are a new drive system with regenerative power system, so everytime the Loader breaks it regenerates electric power which is then fed to the drive system.
P&H Generation 2 wheel loaders deliver outstanding fuel efficiency – in some cases up to 45% less fuel consumption than comparably sized mechanical drive wheel loaders – because they are engineered for the most fuel efficient operation possible. The exclusive Joy (Global) SR Hybrid Drive system is the key.
