October 16, 2019  By Liebherr

The 60,000th R 922 was on show on the world's most beautiful avenue, the Champs Elysées, in Paris, for two days.

Oct. 15, 2019 – Unveiled on 1 March to local officials and the entire workforce of Liebherr-France SAS, the 60,000th crawler excavator has since embarked on a trip around France, Belgium and Luxembourg.

Already exhibited at Bauma in Munich, the Tour de France in Colmar, as well as by some of the Liebherr sales network, this time the flagship from 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 benefited from the international and symbolic dimension of the Champs Elysées.

Symbol of the new generation of Liebherr crawler excavators

Like all eighth generation models, the 60,000th R 922 is characterised by a completely new design, revised in order to improve comfort, safety, ergonomics and performance.

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


As a symbol of local expertise serving the global marketplace, the 60,000th R 922 is still making waves!
