07/18/2014 Special equipment for quarry operations at the Steinexpo 2014
At the Steinexpo 2014, the International Demonstration Show for the Construction Materials Industry, Liebherr is represented not only with a trade fair stand but also with equipment on the demonstration site. From 3rd - 6th September 2014, Liebherr is showing special equipment in Homberg/Nieder-Ofleiden for quarrying.
The new 80 tonnes crawler excavator R 970 SME, which will be equipped in Homberg with wear protected 4.5 m³ bottom-dump bucket, will be presented to the public for the very first time. The bottom-dump bucket is equipped with the new Liebherr Z-type tooth system, which features self-sharpening teeth to offer the best penetration over a long period of time.
The mining excavator R 9150 will be presented for the first time at a European trade fair. The equipment in the 100 tonnes category (130 short tons) had its début at the Minexpo 2012 in Las Vegas (USA). At the Steinexpo 2014, Liebherr is presenting the successor of the R 984 C as a bottom-dump bucket version with a bucket capacity of 8 m³.
The mining excavator R 9100 as a backhoe bucket version will be another highlight in Homberg. The 100 tonnes excavator, which was introduced at the Bauma trade fair in 2010, is equipped with a Liebherr bucket with a nominal volume of 7 m³.
Furthermore, Liebherr is presenting a Liebherr wheel loader L 580 as well as an L 586, which can be seen in operation on the demonstration site. Both machines are specially equipped for tough quarry operations.
