Liebherr has modified an R 974 C demolition specification excavator to allow it to carry a 13,410 kg (29,500 lb) La Bounty MSD 7500 R shear for French contractor Brunel Demolition that will find use during the demolition of power stations.

In addition to the usual tilting cab and extending undercarriage, the new machine features a mechanical quick coupler system for the boom that allows an attachment change in just 10 minutes. Liebherr says that the demolition versions of its excavators will be delivered with a Stage IIIA/Tier 3 engine until the end of 2015.
