Liebherr to launch its B-versions of the R 9100 and R 9150 in 2019
Liebherr Mining Equipment Colmar SAS will launch its B-versions of the R 9100 and R 9150 on January 1, 2019
With the newest upgrades, these hydraulic excavators take a step forward to clearly exceed the performance and reliability compared to other players in this class while lowering the cost per ton.
The Liebherr R 9100 (first launched in 2010) and R 9150 (first launched in 2012) are based on 60 years of Liebherr experience in the development and construction of hydraulic excavators. Innovative technologies from the manufacturer’s large hydraulic excavator program, together with well-proven Liebherr components, make these updated models ideal for the mining and construction industry’s needs.
They are equipped with the long-lasting and proven Liebherr V12 diesel engine specifically designed to withstand extreme outside temperatures and high altitudes with low atmospheric pressure. Integrating the latest engine management system, these machines are built for extreme conditions.
The B’s version upper structure is accessible via a robust fixed ladder or 45° access stair in option and integrates one large central platform equipped with slip resistant surfaces. This new arrangement with wide catwalks facilitates maintenance and ensures comfort during all the operations. These excavators are fitted with ergonomic access for fast and safe maintenance. All service points are within reach from one side and at machine level.
The new B-versions are serially equipped with GSM data transmission functionalities to collect operating parameters, error codes and machine faults. The data is accessible through the Liebherr-Mining Data platform (LMD) on which the user can generate customized reports to track and analyze machine data. The accurate information collected through the Connectivity Kit is recorded in a worldwide database and enters a systematic assessment and resolution process to continuously improve existing and new products and components.
Liebherr’s vertical integration practice means Liebherr designs and builds components that meet the specific operational requirements of both the customer and mine site.
