Comment on this model.

The Liebherr L 576 is a wheel loader with an operating weight of around 24 tonnes.  It has a bucket capacity of 4.5m³ and a dump-over height of 3.9m.

This version is decorated in the colours of Eurovia which is a subsidiary of the VINCI Group


The model comes in a Conrad-branded box which is surprising as some previous models came in Eurovia packaging.  Inside the model is protected within foam rubber. 

There were no  missing parts on the review model although there was a minor paint chip.

No instructions are provided and there is no information about the real machine.  Two door mirrors have to be fitted and this is an easy task.


The transmission is modelled underneath with plastic drive shafts.  The large tyres have a good tread pattern and are mounted on detailed wheels.

The stairs and handrails up to the cab are metal and thin enough to look good, and there are textured non-slip walking surfaces.  The cab has window seals, wipers as applied graphics, and metal grab rails on top.  Inside the detail is good with identifiable controls.

The engine compartment has excellent see-through grilles and interior shapes hint at the engine inside.  At the rear there are painted lights and sharp graphics.

At the front the plastic wheel arches have separate mud flaps.  The centre pivot point looks busy but there are no hydraulic hoses anywhere on the model.  The Z-frame loader mechanism is modelled well and tiny warning signs add detail.

The Eurovia graphics are applied well.

The bucket is a nice casting.


The wheels roll well and the rear axle floats with a good range of movement.

Steering at the centre pivot point has a nice level of stiffness and achieves a realistic angle.

The loader mechanism is very good.  It can hold any pose and reaches a realistic height.  The tipping angle on the bucket is very good.


The model is typically robust and well made.  The paintwork is good and the graphics are applied well.


The model is reasonable value for a limited edition.


It is always good to see a model in VINCI company colours and this is a good quality model.  It has some nice touches of detailing, and it works well.  It is highly recommended.


This version of the L 576 appeared in the VINCI web shop in May 2013 as an exclusive edition of 300 models.
