New Products


LiuGong NA introduced a new, 9-ton midi-excavator, the 909ECR. Designed to compete in the critical 8- to 10-ton size class, 909ECR has limited tail-swing with wide undercarriage, giving operators a versatile, best-in-weight, multi-function tool carrier with greater lift capacity and greater stability. 

The 909ECR has an operating weight of 19,180 pounds and bucket capacity of 0.3 to 0.42 cubic yards. Lifting capacity at ground level is over 11,500 pounds. 

“It was engineered to provide high performance under demanding conditions for customers, while staying true to LiuGong’s DNA of simplicity and value, said Gita Rao, senior director of Product Development and Engineering. 

With a reliable and powerful 62-horsepower, Yanmar engine, 909ECR’s ergonomically designed controls and feature-rich cab improve ease of use and increase productivity. 

The improved cab design offers operators better line-of-site as well as standard features like rear cameras, proportional joystick controls, an air suspension seat and an enhanced monitor. An operator can now control and diagnose high-level machine operations through the monitor.  

Steel tracks with rubber street pads come standard with the 909ECR, allowing use in a variety of worksite conditions. Two-speed travel with auto downshift enables it to move effectively, while lowering impact on the surface environment. 

Operators will also appreciate the boom slew that allows them to dig parallel to the blade. While working in an offset position alongside obstacles, the swing post and cylinder stay within the tracks. 

The 909ECR also comes standard with two auxiliary hydraulic circuits whose pressure and flow can be controlled at the operator’s monitor. The standard case drain line ensures easy installation of hydraulic tools like grapples, mulchers and mowers.  

Like all excavators in the LiuGong line, the 909ECR ROPS/FOPS-certified cab comes standard with rain guard, 2-stage air-cleaner, pattern changer, 3-year telematics and a 3-year / 4,000-hour full-machine warranty designed to provide peace of mind. 

Built tough for the demanding, daily use of contractors, landscapers and rental fleets, the 909ECR is still compact enough to be transported on a trailer pulled by a pickup truck
