World’s first Liebherr-Leica digger arrives in UK

The world’s first factory-fitted Liebherr crawler excavator with Leica Geosystem’s 3D machine control solutions has been delivered to Brad-Pave in the UK. When Paul Bradshaw, director at Brad-Pave, saw the partnership announcement between Leica Geosystem and Liebherr shortly after ConExpo 2020, he immediately called his Liebherr representative, Andy Foster, to order his new crawler excavator R 934 Litronic with factory-fitted machine control solution.

Bradshaw has already used two different machine control systems from Leica Geosystems in the past. Now, ordering his new Liebherr crawler excavator of the new generation 8, he is able to invest in the most reliable machine, with pre-installed machine control technology that he trusts. “I’ve been using GPS for three years and tilt rotators for five years, so I know the numbers work. With a small business, everything has to work right first time, I’m a big believer in getting the best kit for the job – that’s why I chose the combination of Leica Geosystems machine control solution and Liebherr’s new generation of crawler excavator,” said Bradshaw.

Available for customers across Europe, Liebherr excavators can be ordered with the factory-fitted Leica Geosystems machine control solution directly at local Liebherr dealerships or subsidiaries. The Liebherr excavator factory teams have been trained by Leica Geosystems and assemble the systems directly on the assembly lines for wheeled and crawler excavators. Next machines will be commissioned in Germany, France, Nordic countries, Central Europe as well as in Spain.

Brad-Pave’s Liebherr R 934 with Leica machine control features in the April 2021 issue of EARTHMOVERS MAGAZINE – on sale Friday March 5th.
