Press releases | 09/06/2023 The Liebherr R 9300 makes its Australian debut

  • Liebherr-Australia recently delivered an R 9300 mining excavator to long-term customer MACA at the Karlawinda Gold Project
  • After a successful launch – with five of these excavators already sold in Indonesia – the commissioning of the first R 9300 in Australia further demonstrates the strength of the machine’s reputation
  • The R 9300 250-tonne class excavator is the latest excavator to be launched within Liebherr Mining’s portfolio

The first Liebherr R 9300 mining excavator to hit Australian soil was commissioned in late August at the Karlawinda Gold Project, located in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. MACA – a global contractor that works within the mining, construction, and process engineering sectors – is excited to welcome this machine to its growing Liebherr excavator fleet.

MACA has added the new R 9300 250-tonne class excavator to its fleet at the Karlawinda Gold Project in Western Australia. The R 9300 – which joins three Liebherr R 9200 excavators on the site – expands MACA’s already extensive Liebherr fleet, totalling over twenty excavators.

The R 9300 was chosen not only for its capacity to assist in meeting the production targets of its client, but also for the excavator’s fuel efficiency; its state-of-the-art technology, such as Liebherr’s Assistance Systems; and its operational effectiveness. MACA has expressed its excitement in seeing what the new R 9300 is able to accomplish on site, based on the impressive performance of its existing fleet of Liebherr machines.

First-class support and service from Liebherr-Australia

Liebherr-Australia completed the assembly, testing, and commissioning of the R 9300 in a matter of four weeks. The company will continue to support the machine and MACA from both its Perth and Newman branches as well as from the factory for Liebherr mining excavators in Colmar, France.

The R 9300 was launched to the global mining market in June of this year. It is the second Generation 8 excavator within the Liebherr Mining portfolio and comes with the most advanced Liebherr Mining innovations as standard. The R 9300 will replace the R 9250 as the 250-tonne mining excavator in Liebherr’s portfolio in 2024.
