Liebherr’s R 9400 will be a star attraction for Digger

Digger Blogger | 20:44, Wed January 30 2013

Liebherr is set to exhibit its 350-tonne R 9400 mining excavator at the Bauma 2013 trade fair in Munich, this April.

The Digger Blog will be making tracks for the impressive Liebherr stand at Bauma 2013, and one of the first machines I will be looking for during my visit will be the face shovel version of Liebherr’s R 9400 mining excavator, which is highly anticipated to be displayed alongside one of the company’s mining dumptrucks, in a scenario similar to the 2010 event as seen in this photo.

With a 22m³ bucket as standard equipment, the R 9400 is, according to Liebherr, the ideal machine for loading a mining truck fleet in the 136 tonnes class. The R 9400 is available with either a diesel engine or an electric motor, for optimal flexibility in a wide variety of applications. There are currently over thirty R 9400 hydraulic mining excavators operating in four countries. The latest R 9400 commissioned in a Ghanaian gold mine, is the first model in face shovel configuration. The excellent productivity that the R 9400 is known for in backhoe configuration, is expected in its face shovel configuration.

We look forward to getting a closer look at this machine in Munich, so look out for a report on my return if you can’t make it to Bauma yourselves.
