Multi-disciplinary contractor Liviero was honoured to be chosen by Liebherr to take delivery of the first new Liebherr R 776 prototype crawler tractor to land in South Africa. This exceptional machine is the world’s first hydrostatically powered crawler tractor in the 70 tonnes category, and it joined Liviero’s fleet ahead of its global market launch at Bauma 2016.
Liviero and its mining clients will reap the benefits of the PR 776’s lower fuel consumption, outstanding performance, operating comfort and safety. An intuitive joystick control has maximised operating comfort, while safety has been enhanced by a design that offers an excellent view of equipment and the surrounding area.
Liebherr handed over Liviero’s new acquisition at a celebration at Vanggatfontein colliery, where Liviero Mining is working in partnership with client Keaton Energy, and has delivered outstanding production results over the years. “We are delighted to add this modern, high-performance new machine to our fleet at Vanggatfontein. It reflects Liviero’s commitment to investing in state-of-the-art equipment that can enhance our performance and give our clients a competitive edge,” comments Liviero CEO Neil Cloete.
