Contractor, peter duffy, has bought its first ever excavators from liebherr– the R 924B Litronic and R 934C Litronic models. The two “new generation” hydraulic excavators are already working on numerous projects. The new excavators have been supplied with heavy-duty, extra long undercarriage (HD-SL) fitted with 750 mm wide track pads, hydraulically adjustable booms, quick-hitch, hydraulic attachment swivel, automatic central lubrication system and refuelling pumps.
Both machines are required for lifting as well as earthmoving and materials handling – especially with regard to pipeline and shaft work – and Liebherr has provided load diagram systems for lifting duties. A spokesman for Peter Duffy said, “Both machines will undertake a wide variety of tasks but their prime duties are deep digging – such as shafts and pipeline trenching – and their excellent lifting capacities will be used for placing shaft linings and pipe sections.”
