"The R 9600 sets a new benchmark in the Liebherr mining history and prepares our future product portfolio towards all the upcoming opportunities - Digitalization, Automation and Energy transition."
Michel Runser, Product Manager at Liebherr-Mining Equipment Colmar SAS
15" touchscreen to display and control the Liebherr Mining assistance systems.
Switchable night mode with user-friendly interface for machine monitoring.
Operator and trainer seats are air suspended and offer the same comfort with USB plugs and smartphone stands.
Mounted on rubber isolator, the cab design reduces vibrations and limits noise (69 dB) to provide a comfortable space.
Standard ambient lighting ensures even at night serene working environment.
The slim dash line allows for the operator’s seat to be positionned as far left as possible to guaranty best visibility of the working area.
The R 9600 offers superior adjustable vision system which integrates four cameras strategically fixed on the uppercarriage. The dedicated upper monitor inside the cabin provides permanent 270° vision all around the machine.
Liebherr offers a wide range of standard equipment: heated seats, single A/C unit, draw-style refrigerator, reading spotlights, storage units, etc.
Optional equipment is also available: vacuum cleaner, double A/C unit, HEPA filtration system, cooled premium seats and many more.
The Best Performance. Easy.
Available today inside the R 9600, the Liebherr Assistance Systems are advanced onboard applications designed to support operators to become more efficient through analytics and actionable insights from live data. It will help the operator to get optimal productivity and efficiency by providing realtime operational datas.
Assists the operator to obtain target truck payloads.
Measures and analyzes the overall performance.
Using KPIs, histograms and time-related charts
Quantifies application, reports severity indicators and provides an Overall Application Severity score (TRC).
KPIs to indicate and display the application as sensed by the machine.
Detects and counts events to improve operator effectiveness.
Several filtering criterias to identify specific events.
First automation product of the Liebherr hydraulic excavator portfolio, this combination of two innovative engineering developments is an optional feature that allows easier bucket filling and consistent bucket fill factor, especially in blocky or hard digging conditions. As a result overall productivity improves while operator's fatigue decreases.
Anti-Stalling Function: Prevents the bucket from being stalled during the digging phase.
Semi-Automatic Bucket Filling Function: Allows the operator to realize the bucket filling process automatically.
Thanks to its innovative attachment solution improving cost per tonne, maximizing machine productivity and improving component lifetime, Liebherr redefines performance standards in the 600t class.
When mining applications become demanding, Liebherr attachment solutions provide best in class fatigue resistance and productivity. Using hollow pins and aluminium covers on all attachment points, Liebherr engineers are able to install bigger buckets, which enable higher performances.
Designed for best force distribution, the tailored attachment design delivers high digging and lifting forces, which ensures maximum payload during each cycle. But by optimizing the bucket shape and reducing the bearing block, Liebherr has engineered a patented bucket design to improve productivity without impacting cycle time or fuel consumption.
The EVO bucket allows the operator to take advantage of each pass and therefore increase productivity.
Built to outperform all competitors in the 600t class, Liebherr offers the best durability by creating a brand new machine and components to deliver state-of-the-art capabilities and reliability.
Use only the power and the hydraulic flow you require
Specific engine and hydraulic management, drastically reducing fuel consumption.
The R 9600 provides safe machine accessibility and wide catwalks for inspection.
The uppercarriage has been designed for easier maintenance and quicker service. The central service area provides the staff accessibility to all features, which reduces potential downtimes. Refill and drain points of the R 9600 are well accessible from the ground with fast couplings and depressuraized valves.
The R 9600 can be fitted with different powertrain options:
Using Selective Catalytic Reduction system to comply with latest emission regulations the R 9600 combines flexibility and productivity to meet customer expectations without compromising productivity and impact on the environment.
The electric drive system is an efficient alternative to diesel engines allowing less vibrations, lower maintenance costs and less noise pollutions. With high motor efficiency, electric drive option gives maximum performance even in cold climate conditions.
After years of development, the Mining Division of the Liebherr Group is proud to launch the new R 9600 hydraulic excavator. This 600t excavator sets new standards in the open pit mining market.
The successor to the thoroughly proven and iconic R 996B is based on the successful R 9800 and fitted with the most advanced Liebherr Mining technologies including Assistance Systems and Semi-Automated functions.
