Liebherr crawler excavators for special applications
With more than 60 years of experience in the design and production of hydraulic crawler excavators, Liebherr is today one of the major players in the manufacture of equipment for special applications, whether demolition, tunnels construction or handling as well as many other tailor-made requests.
Every Liebherr crawler excavator is designed with one goal: to meet the demands and specifications of our customers in terms of performance, reliability and efficiency, as well as safety and comfort.
The Colas-Sarrazy branch uses an R 945, the heaviest Generation 8 model, in its “Multi-user” configuration with a 10.70 m Boom and 7.70 m Stick. The machine is in charge of cleaning the sludge tanks in one of the group’s local gravel pits. On-board systems, such as demand-driven power regulation and the Liebherr Positive Control hydraulic system, provide adequate and sufficient power to penetrate the tanks bottom. This model of nearly 45 tonnes, replacing the R 950 SME, is also distinguished by its completely new basic concept, its comfort whatever the application is and its ever better operating performance.
Excavation work at great depths requires the use of longer attachments. For such applications, Liebherr has developed “multi-user” attachments perfectly tailored to its machines. Our multi-user attachments allow operations to be carried out at distant or deep locations. This attachment version is available for crawler excavator models R 922 to R 976 Litronic. Its range varies from 15 to 23 m depending on model and type of boom.
For more information on the "Multi-User" equipment, see the brochure.
A Liebherr R 950 Tunnel crawler excavator is being deployed on construction sites for the Grand Paris Express. As part of this huge project, our crawler excavator is in action in shaft 807 of Line 15, performing extraction work with a cutter, installing arches and handling various kinds of loose materials. The Alliance Group is very satisfied with this 45 tonne Liebherr machine.
Construction work in tunnels poses specific challenges: confined spaces, dust and limited visibility are factors that increase the difficulty of underground work. Liebherr tunnelling excavators have been developed for these specific conditions. Their narrow slewing radius allows these machines to turn in tight spaces, and the tunnel excavator has automatic height limitation, allowing it to work only within pre-set height limits. Cameras make the operator’s job even easier.
With the R 940 Demolition, Liebherr complements its existing range of demolition excavators R 950 and R 960. The customer Melchiorre, a demolition specialist, acquired the very first model of this excavator to come out of Liebherr's production lines in Colmar.
Equipped with the Liebherr Demolition Control (LDC) as standard like all Liebherr demolition excavators, a system that allows the operator to visualize the position of the equipment and thus guarantees the stability of the excavator, the R 940 Demolition can lift higher tool weight at longer spans for more productivity.
For its metal waste recycling activity, the Belgian company Ijzerland has chosen performance while respecting the environment. It was to meet these needs that it chose the Liebherr electric material handling excavator R 944 C-E in its High Rise version.
Protecting the environment and sustainability are becoming increasingly important in all areas of life. Companies also want to contribute to achieving these goals. Our electric crawler excavators offer zero-emissions operation without compromising on the proven performance of Liebherr excavators’.
The R 934 C, R 944 C and R 954 C models are part of Liebherr’s range of 100% electric materials handling machines. A single electric motor for all hydraulic functions (actuator concept) makes machine service and maintenance very easy. Sensitive electro-hydraulic controls ensure high accuracy in operation.
For the unloading of coal from the Shakhtersk terminal in Russia, EMCO opted for four Liebherr R 976 crawler excavators. The quality and robustness of the machines as well as the performance of the Liebherr service on-site are essential.
