The R 924 crawler excavator is part of the generation 8 range of 22 to 45 tonne crawler excavators developed at Liebherr-France SAS in Colmar (France). Launched in 2019, these excavators are distinguished by their modern design, enhanced performance, versatility and low fuel consumption.

Liebherr G8 crawler excavators are the result of intensive research and improvement work together with over 60 years’ experience in the development and manufacturing of crawler excavators. This generation features modern design and modular architecture. It has been revamped to offer the best possible ergonomics and performance, as well as improved safety.

The Leica Geosystems machine control system

The R 924 will be equipped with a semi-automatic machine control system. This machine control assistance system is the key to precise and efficient work. The strategic partnership between Liebherr and Leica Geosystems allows both companies’ expertise to be made available to customers, thus providing more advanced and reliable solutions.

Thanks to the generation 8 crawler excavator’s electro-hydraulic controls, there is no need for any additional hydraulic components, as communication takes place via CANbus. Factory installation offers the advantage of ensuring that all components are optimally integrated. Pre-calibration of the control system is also performed at the factory. This greatly simplifies commissioning at the client’s location. This new integrated assistance system allows productivity on construction sites to be considerably increased.

New options: Skyview 360° and urea filling pump

The R 924 G8 crawler excavator is equipped with Skyview 360°, an option that will be available to order in autumn 2024. This system allows the operator to monitor the whole working area around the machine on a single screen, providing a bird's eye view with no blind spots. At a single glance, the operator can see through 360° and rapidly identify danger areas, thus improving the machine’s safety and productivity.

The R 924 G8 presented at Intermat will also be equipped for the first time with a urea filling pump, which will receive its world premiere at the same show. This pump considerably reduces the need to access the uppercarriage, by enabling filling up with urea at ground level, which is quicker and safer for the operator. In addition to reducing the risk of falling, this device features an anti-overflow system to avoid soiling and pollution.

The R 924 G8 presented at Intermat is equipped with a 5.70 m gooseneck boom and a 2.90 m stick, and features an LC undercarriage and 2,390 mm track with 3 chain guides. The machine also comes with the SOLIDLINK quick coupling system, which allows tools to be changed easily and quickly. The machine also has a 1.00 m3 ditch-cleaning-bucket fitted.
