Liebherr has introduced its first minimal tail-swing excavator — the R 924 compact swing.

Whether working on the side of a highway, trying to keep congestion to a minimum or working in the city on narrow, busy roads, it has become increasingly important to have an excavator that can easily maneuver in confined spaces and deliver powerful performance.

The R 924, which has a swing radius less than 6 ft. (1.8 m), offers a reach of 32 ft. 10 in. (10 m) and a dump height of 28 ft. 3 in. (8.6 m).

The operator’s cab is the largest in its class and was designed according to the latest ergonomic principles, according to the manufacturer.

The oversize windows provide the operator with an unobstructed panoramic view of the entire work area. Automatic climate control is standard; sensors continuously monitor the temperature settings to ensure operator comfort for a full day’s work.

In addition to a large comfortable cab, Liebherr has implemented new service features to maximize productivity each work day. Critical service points are all concentrated in one location, which is easy to access from the ground. Daily checks can be performed quickly and efficiently, ensuring a minimal amount of down-time.

The swing drive on the R 924 compact swing is completely maintenance free due to the semi-automatic central lubrication system.

The R 924 compact swing has a rugged undercarriage designed for stability on all terrains. Liebherr’s 164 hp (122 kW), four cylinder diesel engine and electronic regulating system convert the engine output in hydraulic performance. This results in increased output, decreased fuel consumption and extends the life of the diesel engine, according to the manufacturer.
