The new LiuGong 909E CR (close radius) is a 9-metric ton excavator featuring a new cab for improved operator comfort and a completely new upper frame design that improves access to engine and hydraulic components during standard maintenance.

LiuGong's new F-series excavators are sixth-generation designs integrating technology, intelligence and environmental protection. The 922F is a 22-ton class excavator with the latest in electronically controlled hydraulic systems, consisting of a main pump with large displacement, low-speed, high-torque engine and main electro-hydraulic proportional control valve. Improved hydraulic flow distribution, greater operator control and more precise operator placement of bucket or attachment increase quality of performance and operational efficiency.

LiuGong will offer next generation 2D/3D machine control platforms for excavators, with both its LiuGong E- and F-Series, as well as selected dozers. The next generation 2D/3D platform is becoming the industry standard for excavators with intuitive, easy-to-learn software running on simple operating systems enabling operators of all skill levels to work faster and more productively.

LiuGong loaders on display at ConExpo include the mid-sized 215 hp 856H Stage V Cummins engine at 19-ton operating weight and the 315 hp, 24-ton 877H. Both feature the Tier IV Final Cummins engine and new and improved ZF automatic transmissions with improved fuel economy and lower service costs.
