Liebherr R924 Compact Swing excavator sports the newly developed Liebherr D936S Tier 3-compliant diesel engine. Despite its compact body, the R924 is a full-size excavator rated at 163 horsepower, meaning the machine is suited to work in all terrains. But the 6-foot swing radius also enables the R924 to maneuver in tight spaces. Routine maintenance can be done easily thanks to all service points being centrally located and accessible from the ground; It also has an automatic lubrication system. Hydraulic quick-coupler system accepts attachments for grading, trenching, truck loading and more.
The 48,900-pound 210 X4 excavator delivers up to 9 percent faster cycles times than its predecessor, according to the manufacturer.
Models CX130D and CX160D have operating weights of 29,131 and 38,391 pounds, respectively.
Liebherr has introduced two Tier 4-Final crawler dozers, the PR 746 Litronic and PR 756 Litronic, joining the PR 736 introduced at Bauma last year.
The 126,000-pound R 956 excavator replaces the R 954 and features improvements to the upper carriage’s steelwork to extend service life.
