Liebherr will bring 30-ton and 40-ton ADT models to North America in 2015.
The first unit, the TA 230 (above), is being tested near the company's Newport News, Va., headquarters and will be previewed to Liebherr dealers during next week's dealer meetings. President Peter Mayr said that bringing ADTs to the North American market is part of Liebherr's overall strategy to offer more products to customers here.
"We're excited about all the opportunities that exist in North America," Mayr said. He also said that introducing smaller excavators and material rehandlers are possibilities.
