New machines being exhibited at the fair next month include the 100-tonne LR 1100 crawler crane from the Nenzing factory in Austria and from Ehingen in Germany there will be a prototype eight-axle all-terrain telescopic boom crane.
There will also be what Liebherr describes as “the world’s first infinitely variable hydrostatically driven crawler tractor in the 70 tonnes category”, which is the PR 776.
But the biggest machine on the Liebherr stand will be the R 9200 mining excavator. This 200-tonner is manufactured in Colmar, France and has been transported by trucks for the 350 km road journey to Munich.
It has a capacity of 12.5 m3 @ 1.8 t/m3 whether fitted in backhoe or face shovel configuration.
Here it is being made ready at the Messe Muenchen fair ground. Looks cold.
