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

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

Borgstena Dumpertransport, which has an R 930, is also pleased with its fuel consumption of 11 litres per hour, its efficiency and smooth hydraulics.

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

Equipped with a “positive control hydraulic” system, generation 8 excavators have been optimised for smooth combined movement and improved overall performance. It was the R 930 excavator’s smooth movement and fuel consumption of around 14 litres per hour which pleased Skultorps IF too.

Key advantages

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, thanks to reduced vibration and low noise levels. For easy day-to-day operations, the cab is equipped with an air sprung seat with vertical and longitudinal damping. Fodio Entreprenad has been impressed with the R 924’s performance as well as its low external noise emissions.

Advantages of the R 930 crawler excavator: increased engine power, larger bucket filling volume and reduced fuel consumption.
The R 930 has a completely new design, characteristic of the new range of “Generation 8” machines.
The R 924 is from the new generation 8, which has been entirely revamped for increased comfort, safety, ergonomics and operating performance.
The R 924 purchased by EggvenaShakts was the first generation 8 excavator delivered in Sweden.

A stable, well-designed machine

Ma Shakt, which also opted for an R 930, found that the machine’s proportions offer optimal stability in any conditions. Design is no less important than technical performance. Looks played a major part in the decisions of all these customers.

The Swedish market is a key market for Liebherr. Since last year, sales of Liebherr excavators have doubled in Sweden.
