Demolition model shows revised control system
Liebherr has taken the wraps off the R960 demolition rig, a 93.5 tonne crawler with a choice of 28m and 34m boom configurations. A replacement for the previous R954C, the R960 is powered by a 240kW Stage IV diesel engine and features the latest Liebherr Demolition Control (LDC) active safety system. This system provides the operator with a graphic image of the machine’s tilt angle and tool position. Capable of handling attachments weighing up to 3.5 tonnes, the R960 demolition was awarded the silver Intermat innovation prize for 2015, in the Engineering and Systems category.
