Liebherr crawler excavator on Champs Elysées

Within the framework of organising a Liebherr event at the House of Alsace, at the heart of the Champs Elysées, the 60 000th Liebherr crawler excavator occupied a special place on the avenue on 12 and 13 September.

Unveiled on 1 March to local officials and the Liebherr France SAS workforce, the 60 000th crawler excavator has since embarked on a trip around France, Belgium, and Luxembourg.

Also exhibited at bauma in Munich, the Tour de France in Colmar, and by some of the Liebherr sales network, this time the flagship Colmar stopped in front of the House of Alsace on 39 Avenue des Champs Elysées for two days.

With its stopover in the French capital, the flagship from Colmar emphasised its close ties with its Alsatian origins and at the same time benefitted from the international and symbolic dimension of the Champs Elysées.

The 60 000th R922 is characterised by a new design, revised in order to improve comfort, safety, ergonomics, and performance.

Manufactured in March on a dedicated assembly line, introduced in 2019, this crawler excavator is the first eight generation model to have left the Liebherr-France SAS factories.
