With an operating weight between 19t and 22t, the new Liebherr R 918 crawler excavator is ideal for earthmoving applications. A large selection of attachments makes the machine extremely flexible for more specific work.
The R 918 has an engine that complies with the Stage IV exhaust emissions standard and has a power rating of 120kW. The engine is equipped with a urea injection SCR system and an oxidation catalyst. A particulate filter is also available as an option. There is an optional automatic idle-stop when the engine is inactive.
The cab is equipped with a pneumatic seat with vertical and longitudinal absorption as standard and a fully retractable windscreen. The workstation is also equipped with a high-resolution 175mm colour touchscreen. The R 918 has unobstructed panoramic visibility and rear and lateral cameras as standard. The structure of the cab is resistant to rollovers and is ROPS-certified.
Besides an emergency exit at the rear window, the laminated and tinted windscreen and right window guarantee maximum safety in the event of impact.
