Back in 2019, Liebherr launched seven crawler excavator models that make up its Generation 8 series and offer greater mechanical power and other enhancements compared to their predecessors.
Greater power with lower consumption
Liebherr has significantly increased digging forces enabling the Generation 8 crawler excavators to achieve a much higher level of performance on site. At the same time, the new equipment concept devised for this latest generation of excavators offers increased bucket capacity and optimises the load curve and inertia of the swivelling drive in order to reduce fuel consumption.
Comfort and safety maximised
The ultra-spacious, temperature-controlled cabs come with pneumatic seats with vertical and longitudinal suspension and a high resolution, user-friendly seven-inch touch screen make work particularly convenient.
The tinted laminated cab’s windscreen can be fully lowered and the unobstructed panoramic view and monitoring cameras at the rear and sides maximise safety.
The upper carriage is now accessed from the front of the machine via a secured platform that is fitted with handrails to ensure three points of contact. The entire area is fitted with non-slip studs.
The certified ROPS cab structure provides robust protection with the rear window serving as an emergency exit on all configuration versions of the excavator.
LED technology has completely replaced the halogen headlights, increasing operating life and reducing electricity consumption whilst dramatically improving illumination of the working area.
