Liebherr has commissioned the first PR 776 mining dozer in Indonesia at a copper and gold mine.
Within only two months at the unnamed operation, Liebherr said the 70-tonne dozer has achieved more than 1,000 operating hours with outstanding productivity and physical availability. “It has been proven that the PR 776 outperforms its peers in terms of tons per liter of fuel burned and overall costs per ton of material pushed,” said the OEM.
Liebherr also noted that the constant power management of the hydraulic system ensures low fuel consumption and enables a reduction in the carbon footprint.
“We are confident that our ultra-class dozer has made and will continue to make its beneficial features clear to a wider audience,” said Max Muench, general manager of Liebherr Indonesia. “The second and third PR 776, which will be delivered to other Indonesian mining concessions shortly this year, are already a favourable indication to us.”
The Liebherr PR 776, which was launched in 2016, is the world’s largest hydrostatically driven mining dozer.
