LiuGong North America introduced a new 9-ton midi-excavator in the 909ECR.

The excavator is designed to compete in the 8- to 10-ton class, the company says.

The 909ECR features a limited tail-swing design with a wide undercarriage, giving operators a versatile, best-in-weight, multifunctional 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 cu. yd. The lifting capacity at ground level is over 11,500 pounds, LiuGong adds.

“It was engineered to provide high performance under demanding conditions for customers, while staying true to LiuGong’s DNA of simplicity and value,” says Gita Rao, senior director of product development and engineering.

A 62-hp Yanmar engine powers the machine. Ergonomically designed controls and a feature-rich cab make operating the 909ECR easier, LiuGong adds.

Also, an improved cab design offers operators better line-of-sight, as well as standard features such as rear cameras, proportional joystick controls, an air suspension seat and an enhanced monitor. Operators can now control and diagnose high-level machine operations through the monitor.

Steel tracks with rubber street pads are standard with the 909ECR, allowing use in a variety of worksite conditions. Additionally, two-speed travel with auto downshift makes it easy to move effectively while lowering impact on the surface environment, LiuGong says.

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 such as grapples, mulchers and mowers.
