Alan Watson Excavations Limited is based in Maryport, Cumbria and Alan and his Liebherr machine are constantly busy throughout the north west of England. Applications for Alan are varied and demanding, including bulk muckshifting, groundworks, grading, demolition, materials handling and, predominantly, plant hire. To enable him to undertake such a variety of tasks, Alan Watson has taken his new Liebherr R 914C Litronic with a number of extra features. These include an additional hydraulic circuit for a hammer, hydraulic swivel for grab work or tilting grading bucket and a quick-hitch hydraulic coupler for changing buckets. For lifting duties, the R 914C is equipped with check valves, safe load indicator, a load diagram system and the hoist cylinder is fitted with hose burst safety valves. Also, and because Alan often finds himself working in remote areas, the excavator has a refuelling pump and, for safety when parked up overnight, has also been provided with a set of vandal guards.
The R 914C Litronic is a 25 tonnes operating weight machine with a standard 1.40m³ bucket capacity. This particular model has been supplied with a 5.70m gooseneck boom and a 3m stick. Power is provided by a reduced emissions Tier III, Liebherr made D 934 S turbo-charged and after-cooled diesel engine which develops 115kW at 1800RPM. Automatic central lubrication is included.
The operator's cab is comfortable and functional with full instrumentation and Litronic engine and hydraulics management. Air-conditioning is standard and the driver's seat is air-suspended with headrest, heating and automatic lap safety belt. Additional headlights and a flashing beacon have also been supplied and fitted.
