The new Liebherr R 926 Compact crawler excavator has an operational weight of 25 tonnes. Its diesel engine features a DOC (Diesel Oxidation Catalyst) emissions treatment device. A Liebherr particulate filter is available as an optional extra. The engine delivers an output of 120 kW/163 HP and like all the Liebherr engines on the latest-generation machines, it meets stage IIIB exhaust emission standards.

The R 926 Compact combines the power and versatility of a standard excavator with a compact design particularly suited to urban building sites. Thanks to its unique range of equipment and options, this machine can be configured for all types of work involving excavation, pipe-laying or demolition.

The new maintenance concept integrated into the R 926 Compact, with access points within arm’s reach and accessible from the ground, helps reduce service times to increase productivity. Operating costs are also lower thanks to its low fuel consumption and the integration of an automatic tool change system.

The cab on the R 926 Compact is more comfortable, more spacious and offers exceptional visibility; it is ROPS certified and features the latest technologies to ensure optimum machine performance while further enhancing working conditions. The particularly quiet cab is also equipped with a high-definition colour screen with touch screen control and reversing video camera; it also boasts numerous options for settings, checks and monitoring, including air conditioning and engine or tool parameters.
