LAS VEGAS – Liebherr will introduce two diesel-electric haul trucks at MineExpo in September: the new T 284 as the follow-up to the successful T 282 C in the 400 short-ton class, and the newly-designed T 264 set to catapult Liebherr into the 240 short-ton payload class. Liebherr will also introduce two new large hydraulic excavators: a face shovel version of the 386-ton R 9400 as well as the brand new 140-ton R 9150.

The T284 haul truck offers the highest payload in the industry and features the latest generation of the Litronic Plus AC drive system. Developed and built by Liebherr, the proven Litronic Plus drive system determines the optimal way to extract power from the diesel engine. With this system more power is available to accelerate the truck and climb grades. This system also conserves fuel when the engine is idling. In this way the Litronic Plus system minimizes fuel consumption and maximizes performance.

With 30 years of proven design and operational experience, Liebherr is re-entering the 240-t payload class with the T264 haul truck. It is fuel efficient and built for safety and reliability. The T264 is sized to match the Liebherr R996B and R 9800 hydraulic excavators, as well as electric shovels and wheel loaders for optimal performance.

The R9150 excavator is optimally paired with 50-t trucks and offers a wide array of uses. The advanced R 9150 is the successor of the Liebherr R 984 C. It offers the largest bucket capacity in its class combined with high digging forces and optimal cycle time. The R 9150’s new, modern cab design offers ideal working conditions and optimal operator comfort.

The R9400 excavator is built for ultimate performance in the medium class mining market and is the ideal machine to load a fleet of 150-t trucks. It comes in either diesel or electric versions. The attachment kinematics combined with a bucket shape optimized for mining ensure the highest crowd and breakout forces. Even under tough conditions the R 9400’s high digging force allows easy bucket penetration and high bucket fill factors to achieve high productivity.
