James Higgs, product specialist at LiuGong Europe, said the machine has been specifically designed for the European quarrying and demolition sectors.

Two prototypes of the 952F excavator are currently being tested - one at an aggregates recycling facility in Berlin, and the other with a LiuGong customer in the UK.

In addition to Europe, LiuGong says the machine is suitable for North American customers. 

Powered by a 282Kw Cummins X12 engine, the machine could be on the market as early as Q1 2024.
