The LiuGong 95t 995F is targeting the mining, quarrying and demolition jobsites where cost per tonne, reliability, operator safety and comfort are the key considerations. Powered by an 18.1-liter Perkins engine producing 447kW of power with low engine speed and high torque, the 995F delivers class leading tear out forces. To further improve cycle times, operating precision and fuel efficiency, the 995F is equipped with 3 operating modes: Eco, Standard, and Power. 10 engine speeds allow the operator to balance power and efficiency to meet the application's requirements. “The New 995F is the first model of our large excavator F-Series range and delivers the toughness and reliability you would expect from LiuGong. It’s tough but it also excels in controllability and comfort, so it is perfectly matched to the demands of customers and operators in the European market,” said Harry Mellor, Excavator Product Manager for LiuGong Europe.The 995F also features an Advanced Variable Electro-Hydraulic System, which adjusts the flow distribution according to the operating conditions. The 995F comes with increased functionality, including the boom float assistance. With 2 operating modes for loading and breaking, the boom is allowed to lower under its own weight, which reduces fuel consumption, prevents damage and increases operator comfort.In addition, the 995F also has a specially tailored Demolition Package version - 995FDM - complete with bucket cylinder guard, swing open Level II FOPS guard, plus rotation pipework and an attachment drain line.Justin Ffrench from J. Ffrench Ltd. in Bedfordshire, UK is clearly pleased with his first 995FDM. “Very impressed with the way this machine delivers. It’s got the power you want but with the controllability you need. It’s put together very well. I think LiuGong have a very credible machine here for heavy applications,” commented Justin Ffrench.Howard Dale, Chairman of LiuGong Europe, is confident that LiuGong have given customers in the heavy-weight sector something to think about. “We see the launch of the New 995F as part of our commitment to add value to our customers’ businesses. With this new heavyweight model, we can now offer them a wider range of top quality, tough machines designed for Europe. The 995F is proof that we are not just listening to our customers, we are delivering for them too,” mentioned Dale.
