ConExpo 2023 shined a light on the Generation 8 R 924 and R 945 crawler excavators. Both machines are representatives of the Generation 8 crawler excavators developed and manufactured by Liebherr-France SAS in Colmar, France.

Special advantages of the generation 8 machines, are their increased performance and efficiency combined with low fuel consumption, according to Liebherr.

Since their first appearance at ConExpo 2020, the machines have become fully established in the U.S. market.

The R 924 and the R 945 stand out due to higher engine power, a heavier counterweight combined with higher bucket capacities as well as enhanced digging and tractive forces — special characteristics of the generation 8 crawler excavators in comparison to previous models.

Optimal loading cycles lead to increased efficiency and significant fuel savings. Its revised cab concept incorporates a side monitoring camera system for optimal view and safe operation, providing operators with a comfortable workspace in challenging environments.

Versality and high performance are key assets of the R 924, as well as low fuel consumption. The machine has a high breakout force and is perfectly suited for frequent tools changes. In addition, the cab is equipped with a comfortable and ergonomic seat and is entirely glass to offer maximum visibility.
