Liebherr's recently launched R26 crawler excavator is now equipped with a Leica-supplied Geosystem machine-control system. The Leica-equipped Liebherr excavator was displayed for the first time at the ConExpo-Con/Agg 2020 trade show in Las Vegas. Liebherr and Leica Geosystems have formed a strategic partnership in the field of machine-control solutions.

“The release of our latest-generation crawler excavators coincides with the announcement of Liebherr's partnership with Leica Geosystems to introduce 2D and 3D machine controls,” said Peter Mayr, managing director, Liebherr USA, during the company's conference press event. “Controls can be optionally mounted to generation-6 and -8 wheeled and crawler excavators and use real-time data for precise, fast and effective processing of construction projects.”
