Hamburg: A new Liebherr Generation 8 crawler excavator for the Hagedorn company

 

- An R 926 G8 crawler excavator at Hagedorn

- Opting for performance, stability and comfort

- Hagedorn: A family business with more than 30 years of experience

 

The Hagedorn company carries out earthworks, sewer construction work as well as disinfection, deconstruction and recycling projects. The company chose the Liebherr R 926 crawler excavator for earthmoving, concrete piping and laying work on a construction site in Hamburg.

 

Hamburg (Germany), 2nd February 2021 - The city of Hamburg has launched a construction project to build two new logistics platforms in the Wilhelmsburg district. Since space was limited and already determined, a French architect who had already designed a two-storey logistics centre in Paris was brought in for this project - a world first. This idea is also being used for this project. The Hagedorn company is taking care of the earthworks on the site and the drainage of the rainwater that accumulates on the flat roofs of the two buildings. For these tasks, it chose an R 926 Generation 8 crawler excavator.

 

Opting for performance and stability

Hagedorn opted for the R 926 G8, which offers an optimal combination of performance and stability. With its 150 kW (204 bhp) exhaust stage V engine and 27.5 t operating weight, as well as a 6.20 m adjustable boom, the excavator has a high lifting capacity and is therefore perfectly suited for handling concrete pipes. The excavator is to lay the concrete pipes that connect the rainwater drains from the roofs of the two buildings to the central collection station. The excavator is equipped with a swing bucket that allows more precise earthworks on slopes. The R 926 G8 replaces the Generation 6 predecessor model of the same name, but has a more powerful engine that reduces fuel consumption while increasing performance - to the complete satisfaction of the user company. The machine has a fuel consumption of 14 litres per hour.
The Hagedorn company appreciates the responsiveness and know-how of the technicians from Grotemeier, the authorised Liebherr dealer, who ensure that the machine is in perfect condition and also provide Liebherr customer service.

 

Cab comfort and smooth movements

The Generation 8 crawler excavator R 926 offers great comfort for machine operator Michael Moritz. The operator has a spacious and air-conditioned work area with an air-suspended seat with height and longitudinal damping. The cab is equipped with a high-resolution 7-inch colour touchscreen. The new LED lighting is also appreciated by the machine operator and his colleagues working in the immediate vicinity, as it is more powerful and has a greater reach than the previous halogen system. A GPS guidance system was installed on the excavator to precisely position the pipelines according to the specified laying plan. Michael Moritz, the sole driver of the excavator, is nearing the end of his professional career and is thrilled that he was able to complete this assignment with such a comfortable excavator.
