Liebherr and Leica Geosystems, part of Hexagon, have been partners in the machine control systems area since last year. A Liebherr R 934 G8 crawler excavator, the first hydraulic excavator with a factory-fitted Leica Geosystems machine control system, has been delivered to a customer in Great Britain.
The partnership allows customers to purchase generation 6 and 8 crawler excavators and wheeled excavators with a factory-fitted 2D and 3D machine control system as an option. The generation 8 comes with the Leica 3D passive system and will be updated with a semi-automatic system featuring an automatic inclination/rotation function.
The R 934 crawler excavator is the first Liebherr machine with a factory-fitted Leica Geosystems control system. The entry into partnership between Liebherr and Leica Geosystems announced in March 2020 enables us to offer our customers the expertise of both companies.
