Liebherr has unveiled the new A 922 Rail Litronic in exhaust emission stage V. Because it is a railroad machine, the A 922 Rail is suitable for use on railway tracks and for road construction and is fast thanks to the mobile undercarriage. A rail travel drive is mounted on both sides of the undercarriage. When entering the rails, the rail travel drive lifts the tyres to rail height. The inside wheels of the dual tyres ensure travel of the excavator on the tracks.
With the A 922 Rail, Liebherr is seeking to offer the perfect overall package: the basic machine, the rail travel drive, the quick coupler system, attachments and all of the safety systems are developed by Liebherr and customised for the machine.
The new generation of Liebherr railroad excavators offers a higher level of efficiency. The new 120 kW / 163 PS engine ensures that the A 922 Rail achieves even higher working speeds with the usual fluid equipment movements. The hydraulic concept of the A 922 Rail consists of a Liebherr variable displacement double pump with independent control circuits. High-performance, hydraulic attachments can thus be operated independently of the working and travel movements of the Liebherr railroad excavator. The delivery rate of the Liebherr variable displacement double pump was increased to 2 x 220 l/min for even better performance. The heavy ballast was also redesigned to yield the best bearing load values with improved weight distribution and a more compact rear dimension of 2,000 mm.
