Liebherr’s R 9150 mining excavator has an operating weight of 286,600 lbs. (130,000 kg) and is equipped with shovel attachment. The R 9150 is the successor of the Liebherr R 984 C.

With the Litronic Plus electronic control system, Liebherr-made cylinders, and an 10 cu. yd. (8 cu m) bucket, the R 9150 ensures high digging forces, easy material penetration and excellent bucket fill factors to perform even in the most demanding conditions, according to the manufacturer.

The R 9150’s powerful 757 hp (565 kW) Liebherr V12 diesel engine works in harmony with the engine management system. Thus, the R 9150 delivers fast cycle times resulting in higher productivity.

Engineered for optimum serviceability, the R 9150 ensures first class service arrangements. The grease tank and fuel tanks are sized to extend the time between service intervals and with its one side service access, the R 9150 allows easy access to the major service points for quick and safe maintenance. The modern large cabin with its large panoramic windows, the electro-hydraulic controls, the new machine monitoring system and the adjustable air suspended seat creates an ideal and efficient working environment for the operator.

Equipped with a sliding ladder, a large catwalk and walkway, the R 9150 allows access to the major service points for easy and safe maintenance. In addition to its ergonomic design, the R 9150’s cabin with its armored front and attachment side windows provides maximum protection for the operator. The falling object protection system and the front guard are available as an option for even more safety.

Integrating the latest engine management system, the R 9150 is built for intense mining while complying with USA/EPA Tier II emission limits. When less power is required, the ’’Eco-Mode’’ can be selected via the machine monitor panel to reduce engine load, improving fuel efficiency and reducing carbon emissions.
