The Liebherr R 918 crawler excavator with an operating weight of approx. 21 tonnes is equipped with a Liebherr diesel engine with a power rating of 95kW / 129 HP and satisfies the emission standards of stage IIIB. It boasts a straight monoblock boom of 5.45m and a stick of 2.70m, a NLC travel mechanism with track gauge of 2000mm, B60 chains with triple grouser track pads of 500mm, and a heavy counterweight (2.5t) for a high degree of stability. For work in dusty environments a water spraying system and an air pre-filter with dust discharge are available. The excavator is also equipped with a reversible fan drive and a dust grid at the cooler.
In order to increase the service life of the components, the Liebherr R 918 crawler excavator has protective devices. Theseinclude various protectors on the uppercarriage, a swivel-mounted protective grid, fixtures for protecting the stick and the piston rod, as well as a reinforcement of the travel mechanism.
Special equipment, such as the FOPS protective grid, the ROPS cabin design, as well as an armoured windscreen and roof, guarantee the driver's safety. The rear area monitoring and the lateral camera ensure additional safety. They give the driver an superb view of the working area and an overview of the surrounding area of the machine.
