Improvement of Machine Efficiency to Increase Production - The New Liebherr R 982 821096
Construction machinery, in general, has high power consumption. Most manufacturers today are working to improve the efficiency of their machines to satisfy the rising energy consciousness of their customers.
Machine design changes to improve the output to input ratio should not only involve components, but also factors such as easier material penetration, better maneuverability, easier maintenance and faster repair.
Recent overall efficiency improvements in Liebherr’s “2” series excavators are described, using the R 982 as an example.
