Liebherr-France has begun the series production of the new R 926 Compact excavator.
This model continues Liebherr’s compact excavator product range but with a Stage IV / Tier 4f emission standards compliant engine and other developments compared to its Stage IIIB model. The new R 926 Compact joins the ranks of Liebherr’s compact machines in the 15 to 35 tonne weight range.
Enhancements include Liebherr SCR technology, an improved swing torque and greater engine power. The improved innovative maintenance concept enables simplified, safe and fast maintenance and repair of the machine. Overall, the new compact excavator achieves higher levels of productivity and economy compared to the previous generations.
Depending on the option selected, the new Liebherr R 926 Compact offers an operating weight of between 25.4 and 29.5 t. With a tail swing of 1.7 m (5 ft 6 in) and a front swing of 1.9 m (6 ft 3 in), its dimensions have been further reduced. Altogether this results in a swing radius of less than 4 m. This special feature makes the new compact excavator ideal for applications in confined areas.
The new diesel engine is manufactured by Liebherr in Bulle, Switzerland and complies with Stage IV/Tier 4f emission standards. It generates a higher engine power of 129 kW, which is an increase of eight per cent compared with the Stage IIIB/Tier 4i predecessor model.
