In the middle of October the Liebherr Group welcomed more than 1000 international customers from the quarrying sector to Saint-Nabor, France, for the Liebherr Quarry Days. The practical event offered visitors the opportunity to see a live demonstration of special Liebherr machines and the chance to also test them out.
There were new products among the 20 machines on show, such as the R 956 crawler excavator, the PR 726 crawler tractor and the new Liebherr large wheel loader XPower.
The visitors who attended the Quarry Days came from all over the world and were mainly quarry operators interested in the knowledge and expertise of the Liebherr Group in this area. Liebherr experts demonstrated the use of the quarrying equipment at various stations oriented towards the different production process in a quarry - material removal, quarrying, transportation, stone crushers and service.
Liebherr demonstrated material removal with the R 946 crawler excavator and the PR 726 crawler tractor. Special crawler excavators were used for the quarrying stage - the R 960 SME Super Mass Excavation, the R 966 and the mining excavator R 9100 with operating weights of approximately 60 tonne, 65 tonne and 110 tonne.
The new L 566 XPower wheel loader demonstrated transportation in the quarry. At the stone crusher station, Liebherr showed an A 918 wheeled excavator equipped with a hydraulic stone crusher for crushing stone blocks. The service station rounded off the program. Liebherr informed the visitors about possible service agreements, the Reman program and its tooth systems, among other things.
The diverse show, which took place four times daily, offered the opportunity to see a live demonstration of the various applications of Liebherr machines.
After the show all machines were available for customers to test out. The customers were able to experience the performance and efficiency of the Liebherr machines for themselves.
A visit to the two crawler excavator production sites Liebherr-France SAS and Liebherr-Mining Equipment SAS in Colmar, France, rounded off the program.
