Press releases | 08/23/2018 TPV adds new Liebherr R 914 Compact crawler excavator to its fleet

  • TPV has acquired a Liebherr R 914 Compact crawler excavator with Stage IV / Tier 4f engine
  • The Liebherr R 914 Compact operates particularly well in confined spaces

The Alsace-based construction company TPV (Travaux Publics du Vignoble) from Sundhoffen has acquired a new Liebherr R 914 Compact crawler excavator with Stage IV / Tier 4f engine. The new compact excavator is to be used primarily for earthmoving tasks, the development of water supply networks and the construction of outdoor areas for private homes.

TPV purchased the Liebherr R 914 Compact crawler excavator based on the machine’s excellent performance and its confidence in Liebherr’s service. The machine enables safe and comfortable work in confined spaces.

The R 914 Compact expands TPV’s fleet of Liebherr machines, which consists of A 311 and A 314 wheeled excavators and L 506 Compact and L 509 Stereoloader. This investment by TPV is also a reflection of the level of trust that its two Managing Directors, Etienne Oesch and Yann Sciquot, and their 30 employees have been placing in Liebherr for some time. TPV has been relying on its Liebherr sales partner since the company's formation in 2007.

When TPV was looking for a compact excavator for work in restricted spaces, the impressive solution the Liebherr sales partner presented to the company was the R 914 Compact: high levels of performance on construction sites, superb operating comfort and precise movements combined with rapid deployment.

With a short tail swing of only 1.55 m, the Liebherr R 914 Compact can be used to perform whatever tasks may arise in the construction of private homes, such as creating a garage entrance. The compact dimensions of the excavator make the work of TPV’s employees safer and more comfortable and the risk of damage to the construction site environment is therefore very low.

The R 914 Compact is in perfect harmony with TPV’s primary objectives: user-friendliness and job satisfaction, with excellent results.

Powerful and versatile: the new R 914 Compact

The R 914 Compact crawler excavator with Stage IV / Tier 4f engine is the smallest crawler excavator built by Liebherr in Colmar, France. The model was designed for work in restricted spaces, such as inner city applications. Its very short tail swing makes it particularly convincing.

Thanks to its 14.9 tonne operating weight and 90 kW / 122 HP engine, the excavator has a high penetration force.

To simplify maintenance, regular maintenance tasks can be carried out at ground level and the automatic central lubrication system can significantly reduce the amount of time spent on daily maintenance tasks.

The R 914 Compact provides a comfortable working environment with air suspension for the seat as standard. Cameras around the excavator, which are also fitted as standard, guarantee safety.
