The 75,000th Liebherr wheeled excavator, the A 918 Compact, has been painted by one of the world's best-known graffiti artists, Claudia Walde, aka MadC
Liebherr will have a diverse model range on show at next month’s Hillhead 2018 quarrying exhibition, near Buxton, England.
Taking centre stage on the company’s stand, and painted in Liebherr’s mining colours, will be a bespoke R 960 Super Mass Excavation (SME) demolition crawler excavator. The 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, make it a standout machine. The R 960’s configuration and resultant 10tonnes of additional weight give the model the ability to operate with heavier tools for countrywide demolition tasks.
Stopping off on its world tour will be the 75,000th wheeled excavator to come off the Libeherr production line in Kirchdorf, Germany. This A 918 Compact has been colourfully painted by one of the world’s best-known graffiti artists, Claudia Walde, aka MadC.
Liebherr is also exhibiting some of its XPower wheeled loaders, dozers and crawler excavators, along with the latest truck mixer and mobile pump technology from Liebherr’s concrete division.
