Largest Liebherr demolition excavator ever built delivered to German demolition company
The German demolition company AWR Abbruch received the key to the R 980 demolition during an official handover at the Colmar site. This excavator with its impressive dimensions was developed and produced by Liebherr-France SAS.
The customer is already familiar with Liebherr demolition machines and in particular owns an R 974 demolition machine acquired in 2007. This is still in operation today. Since this first project, AWR Abbruch has also acquired other Liebherr machines, including two demolition machines, wheeled excavators and wheel loaders.
The R 980 demolition VHHD crawler excavator
The machine has an operating weight of 190 tonnes, a counterweight of 35 tonnes and required months of study, testing and modifications in order to achieve a result that perfectly meets the customer's expectations.
The R 980 demolition developed and produced by Liebherr-France SAS has four demolition units of 21, 26, 36 and 55 metres respectively. The 21 and 26-metre equipment will be able to support tools weighing 15 tonnes, 7 tonnes for the 36-metre version and finally 3 tonnes for the 55-metre version.
AWR Abbruch GmbH became a customer of Liebherr-France SAS with the acquisition of an R 974 demolition in 2007. The VIQA brothers chose Liebherr because of its know-how, the adaptability of its products and, above all, Liebherr's more than thirty years of experience with demolition excavators.
