Taking centre stage at Stand Z6 at Hillhead 2018, and painted in Liebherr’s mining colours, will be a bespoke demolition crawler excavator.

The R 960 Super Mass Excavation (SME) machine is equipped with an undercarriage from the next class size up, heavy-duty tracks, oversized cylinders, heavy-duty boom and stick, increased engine HP and an optimised hydraulic system for operating with heavy-duty attachments. A full demolition specification, including a number of protective components and a specially designed heavy-duty stick, makes this machine unique. Its configuration and resultant 10 t of additional weight give the R 960 the ability to operate with heavier tools for its countrywide demolition tasks.
