Increased fuel efficiency, more horsepower, and improved hydraulics add up to greater production with these excavators.
Liebherr’s R 964 C Litronic offers a 29-foot, 10-inch digging depth; 75,400-pound breakout force; an operating weight of 150,790 pounds; and a lift capacity of 25 feet over end and side. Liebherr Tool Control allows operators to easily change hydraulic tools and adjust pressure and flow rates.
Caterpillar’s 156,043-pound 374D improvements include new buckets and a greater operating weight to boost loading and lifting capabilities, a stronger undercarriage, safety enhancements, and easier serviceability. The Cat C15 ACERT engine features electronic control, precise fuel delivery, and refined air management.
Komatsu says its PC800LC-8 Super Digger uses double-arm cylinders and an HD bucket cylinder to increase arm digging force by 19 percent and bucket digging force by 9 percent over a standard machine — without sacrificing working range. The machine also features the Komtrax satellite monitoring system and on-board diagnostics.
Case says its CX800B is ideally suited for applications requiring heavy muscle and long reach. The 178,575-pound machine features an electronically controlled, common rail, 15.7L Isuzu engine and is available in standard and mass-excavation configurations.
