The Liebherr-Australia Adelaide Fabrication Shop is currently experiencing an increase in workload with mining buckets consistently being delivered for both our customers’ ongoing requirements and for new machine deliveries. The forward order book for mining buckets stretches well into 2019.

Recently, the team delivered a 36m3 R 996B excavator bucket destined for export to South America for Thiess’s R 996 Chile Fleet, making this the first exported bucket for the Adelaide Facility.
