Liebherr to debut new excavator range at Bauma China

The Liebherr R 920 has an operating weight of 21 tonnes and an engine output of 110kW.

Liebherr will be showcasing a range of its latest technologies and developments in construction machinery and components at this year’s Bauma China to take place from November 22-25 in Shanghai. The German OEM says its presence at Asia’s most important trade fair for construction machinery shows its appreciation and awareness of the growing markets in the Asia-Pacific region.

Following the debut of a completely renewed range of Liebherr crawler excavators at the Bauma 2016 in Munich, Germany in April this year, one of the new models that made headlines in Munich, the R 920 will be on display at the 2016 Bauma China. It is said to unite power, precision and versatility, which ensures greater performance.

The R 920 has an operating weight of 21 tonnes and an engine output of 110kW / 150hp. Equipped with the latest hydraulic system, it is suitable for light and heavy tasks. It also features an automatic centralised lubrication system and intelligent energy management, which increases productivity. Furthermore, its bulldozer blade and various attachments are said to make it indispensable. With Liebherr’s understanding that a comfortable operator is a productive one, the operator’s cab includes a new seat, touch screen, and larger windows; not only does the driver have a better view, but it also ensures a safer work environment.

The 70-tonne class R 966 will also be among Liebherr’s exhibits at Bauma China. Its optimised hydraulic system, together with intelligent operating modes, allow it to work at maximum productivity, whether in earthmoving or quarry operations.

It features a V8 diesel engine with high torque even at low speeds. Additionally, it is equipped with a Liebherr bucket and tooth system, which guarantees easy penetration and simple extraction, where digging and breakout forces of 308kN and 354kN ensure fast and efficient working cycles. The R 966 proves its versatility with its various attachments and optimised kinematics.
