New demolition excavators are thin on the ground at bauma, with the sole new machine being shown on the Liebherr stand in the shape of this 44.6 tonne R 946 tracked excavator powered by a IIIB compliant Liebherr 6 cylinder diesel developing 200 kW (272 hp) at 1,800 rpm.

The new machine is based on the R 946 introduced last year at Intermat and is fitted with 4.3 m(14.1 ft) boom and a 3.3 m (10.8 ft) dipper. With a second 3.m dipper, the machine can reach heights up to 15 m (43.7 ft). The maximum tool weight at that height is 2 tonnes
