The main difference - if any could be found - was the price. Knowing that Liebherr is globally well known for its high quality products - and that quality has its price - the goal was as clear as it was difficult: The Liebherr reachstacker would have to come out with some unique features which would score in an almost saturated market." 01 Nov 2004
