I can see that been fantastic on embankment clearance projects, fast, precise and comfortable.

Can the cab also tilt back to give you a clearer view up when cutting at full hight as in 1st picture?

Will look forward to seeing some pictures of it in action and hopefully a few bit of video also.

No a Tilt/Elevating cab is a very rare beast, as it's usually Tilt for Demolition and Elevating for Handling. But it's a nice cab, and has great vision, plus I had a top wiper added which should help.

Should still give a vast improvement in view over a standard cab position even if you still have to look up a bit every so often, will she be taking the mulcher head as well as I imagine being able to look down onto the material rather than straight at it especially roady will be a huge advantage.

One last but what could be a daft questions, can it still be used to dig be it not heavy earth shifting but more grading work with that top ram and boom length configuration?

Certainly not a daft question and yes I've ensured its set at full power downwards so it'll dig no problem. As for grading its smooth as silk, but that is Liebherr quality! Sat 3 days with the dipper end 50mm off the floor and never moved!

be careful with the boom and dipper as they are material handling types try to avoid side sweeping with them looks like a cracking piece of kit is it fully piped for autolube as well i do like liebherr stuff the smallest we had was a 914 is this the new replacement for it
