Excavators & Earthmovers
LIEBHERR Mining Equipment Colmar SAS announced it will launch the new B-versions of the R 9100 and R 9150 excavators in January 2019.
Both machines have proven to be reliable and productive partners in the mining industry over the years.
With the newest upgrades, these hydraulic excavators would take a step forward to clearly exceed the performance and reliability compared to any other player in this class, while lowering the cost per tonne.
The R 9100 B and R 9150 B 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, the machines were built for extreme conditions.
The Liebherr D9512 diesel engine is the latest generation of Liebherr diesel engines and is now USA/EPA Tier 4f compliant.
It has been upgraded on many levels with an increased engine lifetime and new features that facilitate and improve the engine maintenance.
Furthermore, the new B-versions come with exclusive EVO Bucket Solution with patented Liebherr design to maximise the loading capacity and ensure optimal penetration efficiency.
The new buckets also make both excavators the perfect working partners in terms of shovel match for the Liebherr T 236 truck and all other articulated and rigid trucks in the 50 tonne to 100 tonne class.
Both the new B-versions’ upper structure is accessible via a robust fixed ladder of 45 degree access stair in option and integrates one large central platform equipped with slip resistant surfaces.
The 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 modern and large cab provides ideal working conditions and optimal operator’s comfort.
Mounted on silent blocks, the optimised cab design reduces vibrations.
The new headliner limits noise pollution to provide a quiet working environment – a decrease of 2 decibels in the cab compared to the previous version.
Both new B-versions are also 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 customised reports to track and analyse 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.
The Liebherr R 9100 B was premiered at Bauma in China at the end of November.
