From January 2019, Liebherr is launching a completely new generation of crawler excavators for earthmoving: the Generation 8. With an operating weight between 22 and 45 metric tonnes according to the different configurations, the new series of crawler excavators will cover an engine power range from 120 kW (163 hp) to 220 kW (299 hp). Videos at Liebherr seem to always have high production values and this one is no exception.
