LiuGong North America has introduced a new 9-tonne midi-excavator, the 909ECR. Designed to compete in the critical 8- to 10-tonne size class, the 909ECR is a limited tail-swing design with wide undercarriage giving operators a versatile, multi-function tool carrier with greater lift capacity and greater stability.

The 909ECR has an operating weight of 19,180 pounds and a bucket capacity of 0.3 to 0.42 cubic yards. Lifting capacity at ground level is over 11,500 pounds. Gita Rao, Senior Director of Product Development and Engineering for LiuGong NA said, "It was engineered to provide high performance under demanding conditions for customers, while staying true to LiuGong's 'DNA' of simplicity and value."

It is powered by a reliable and powerful 62 hp Yanmar engine. Ergonomically designed controls and a feature-rich cab make operating the 909ECR easier and offer increased productivity.

Steel tracks with rubber street pads come standard with the 909ECR, allowing use in a variety of worksite conditions. Two-speed travel with auto downshift makes it easy to move effectively while lowering impact on the surface environment. Operators will also appreciate the boom slew that allows them to dig parallel to the blade. While working in an offset position alongside obstacles, the swing post and cylinder stay within the tracks.

A dozer blade with float make for efficient backfill work, and operators in land clearing, landscaping and site prep applications will appreciate the unit's increased traction. The 909ECR also comes standard with two auxiliary hydraulic circuits whose pressure and flow can be controlled at the operator's monitor. The standard case drain line ensures easy installation of hydraulic tools like grapples, mulchers and mowers. 

Like all excavators in the LiuGong line, the 909ECR ROPS/FOPS-certified cab comes standard with rain guard, 2-stage air-cleaner, pattern changer, standard 3-year telematics and a 3-year/4,000-hour standard full-machine warranty designed to provide peace of mind.
