LiuGong mini excavators ideal for restricted jobsites

The LiuGong 9018F, 9027FZTS and 9035EZTS mini excavators are suited for the tight spaces that come with utility and landscape work. They were recently displayed at Conexpo 2020.

The 9018F has an operating weight of 1,900 kg, with a 0.045 cu m standard bucket capacity and 2,290 mm maximum digging depth. The 9027FZTS offers an operating weight of 2,750 kg, with a 0.08 cu m standard bucket capacity and 2,853 mm maximum digging depth. The 9035EZTS provides an operating weight of 3,860 kg, with a 0.11 cu m standard bucket capacity and 3,085 mm maximum digging depth.

Both the 9018F and the 9027FZTS (zero tail swing) compact excavators are part of LiuGong’s sixth generation of excavators. They are equipped with load sensing hydraulics ensuring smooth and precise operations, and are powered by Yanmar engines for both reliability and efficiency. The engine has auto-idle and auto shutdown, combined with variable flow proportional auxiliary hydraulics, making the excavators powerful whilst energy-saving.

The 9018F is a standard configuration length HEX with retractable undercarriage for a minimum width of 980 mm to a maximum width of 1,290 mm and a foldable dozer blade, enabling the machine to pass through narrow spaces. It is easy for operators to load and unload from trailers. The excavator is also fitted with standard boom and dozer cylinder guards.

All three models are available with open TOPS cab or closed ROPS cab with heat. They feature two speed travel and can be easily shifted by the switch in the dozer blade joystick. The attachment flow can be adjusted through the operator monitor and the boom swing controlled through thumb switch. The arm is thumb ready to accept thumb cylinder auxiliary hose plumbed to bottom of arm.
