In terms of maintenance, the Liebherr R 946 crawler excavator has been designed to speed up operations carried out every day and improve machine availability. The maintenance areas are easy to access and the R 946 has automatic central lubrication as standard. The operator can also easily check the engine oil and urea solution levels via the control display.
The new R 946 offers a spacious cab that provides a pleasant working environment for the driver. The seat has air suspension as standard to ensure maximum comfort, further enhanced by the ergonomic controls. The large colour 7’’ touchscreen provides a high definition display, compatible with video, and boasts a range of setting, control and monitoring options. Also supplied as standard is fully automatic air conditioning, with 13 air outlets to ensure a constant and pleasant working temperature. The image from the reversing camera, fitted as standard, can also be displayed on the on-board display.
The integrated roll-over protection (ROPS) in the cab complies with the ISO-12117-2 standard and ensures the driver remains safe in all situations. The engine compartment lighting allows maintenance to be carried out on the machine easily and in complete safety. The lower windshield wiper, 360-degree camera and timed lights-out feature also help to optimise the working environment and ensure it is as safe as possible.
