Last August, SOMTP Belgium delivered the first of the new R 936 Compact in Benelux to earthmoving company Elboka N.V. With an operating weight of around 36 tonnes, the R 936 Compact crawler excavator is the largest compact crawler excavator produced by Liebherr-France SAS.
Like the other compact models developed by Liebherr, the R 936 Compact is ideal for applications operating in confined spaces, making it perfect for urban operations. With a short rear turning radius of 1.98 m, the R 936 Compact offers maximum safety and flexibility on site.
The R 936 Compact’s powerful engine develops 190 kW/258 hp, in line with Stage IV/Tier 4 Final and using Liebherr SCR technology. This technology, developed and produced by Liebherr, operates without external recirculation of exhaust gases (EGR), a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) or a diesel particulate filter (DPF). This guarantees superior performance and reliability.
At Elboka N.V., the Liebherr R936 Compact crawler excavator has an operating weight of around 36 tonnes and a bucket capacity from 1.00 m3 to 2.15 m3. The company also opted for 900-mm-wide crawlers and an LC undercarriage to minimise ground pressure. The mono boom is 6.2 m long and the stick 3.2 m.
The equipment of the R 936 Compact is designed with cast steel articulations to better respond to varying application constraints. In addition, its high digging forces guarantee maximum productivity on site.
