Liebherr’s new generation of crawler excavators designed for the Swedish market

Global Mining Review,

Liebherr's new generation crawler excavator is steadily establishing a presence in countries around the world. One example is Sweden, a growing market for earthmoving machinery and crawler excavators, where the machine's versatility, performance, comfort and design are attracting more and more local customers.

The R 924 crawler excavator, owned by Eggvena Shakts, was the first generation 8 excavator to be delivered on Swedish soil. The customer was pleased with its stability and performance, as well as the low average fuel consumption of 9.9 l/hr.

At Borgstena Dumpertransport, which has an R 930, the customer is also pleased with the fuel consumption of 11 l/hr, meaning the machine is efficient, cost-effective and has smooth hydraulics.

The R 924 purchased by Granaths is well suited to the company's diverse earthmoving, digging and pipework operations.

Equipped with the ‘positive control hydraulic’ system, generation 8 excavators have been optimised for smooth combined movement and improved overall performance.

Maximum comfort and top-level service

The operator benefits from a spacious and comfortable work area in all working conditions. Generation 8 machines offer real operator comfort due to reduced vibration and a low noise level. For easy day-to-day operations, the cab is equipped with an airsprung seat with vertical and longitudinal damping.

A stable, well-designed machine

Ma Shakt, which also opted for an R 930, has found that the machine's proportions offer optimal stability in any conditions.

The Swedish market is a key market which is constantly changing. Since last year, sales of Liebherr excavators have doubled in Sweden. Sweden represents an ideal market for Liebherr, which is proud to supply its products to highly qualified operators that often drive innovation and progress within the sector.
