The 9018F LiuGong excavator is the first in its new F series. Operating weight is 3,969 pounds, and it is powered by a 17.1-horsepower Yanmar diesel engine. Maximum dig depth is 8 feet, and maximum dumping height is 8 feet 1 inch. Maximum digging reach is 13 feet 3 inches.
It has a foldable dozer blade and retractable undercarriage, which can mov from a 51-inch outside tread to outside tread measurement to 39 inches. It is available with either a FOPS-rated enclosed cab or a TOPS-rated canopy.
A more efficient hydraulic system uses 15 to 20 percent less engine power than that of its predecessor. An improved load-sensitive hydraulic system with 14.5 gpm main pump displacement utilizes a proportional control valve for better management of flow distribution for all attachments.
