The PR 776 crawler tractor extends the Liebherr range of crawler tractors. From April 2016, Liebherr will have a total of seven models in its portfolio with operating weights from 17 to 70 tonnes. Whether for heavy ripping work, moving material transport or fine-grading: Liebherr offers powerful machines for diverse applications.

Some new developments are being introduced with the entry to the new size class. But Liebherr also integrates special features of the Generation 6 crawler tractor programme, which have already been tried and tested in practice. These include, for example, proactive power control, the maintenance concept or the modern driver's cab.

Like with all Generation 6 crawler tractors, the main components of the new crawler tractor are manufactured in-house. These are adapted optimally to the requirements of the machinery. Here, Liebherr can draw from over 50 years of experience in the development of crawler tractors.
