A Liebherr-France SAS design
Liebherr France SAS in Colmar, Alsace (France) is the historical production site of Liebherr crawler excavators from 18 to 100 tonnes. With over 50 years of experience in the field, Liebherr-France SAS was able to offer the adapted solution for Ehlert and Söhne.
This demolition excavator has the Liebherr Demolition Control (LDC) system, which received innovation awards at the Intermat trade fair in Paris in 2015. This innovative system shows the operator the position of the demolition attachment and also guarantees the stability of the excavator.
This significantly reduces the probability of human error that may affect the stability of the machine. The colour touchscreen visualises the real-time position of the attachment and the inclination of the machine. The operator is informed in real time of authorised movements.
The R 960 Demolition crawler excavator also has a water spraying device, a hydraulic removable counterweight to reduce the weight during transportation, a compressed air system and a retractable undercarriage. Moreover, the cab can be tilted at 30° offering the driver improved visibility of the working area and implements.
The two operators are equally satisfied with the machine, its comfort, stability, sensitivity and the low level of noise when in use. The seat can be adjusted to individual requirements whereas the controls and displays are in perfect harmony with the ergonomics of the machine.
