LiuGong’s 915D excavator features smart engineering
Better Roads Staff
LiuGong says its new 915D excavator boosts work efficiency by 10 percent while reducing fuel consumption by 10 percent when compared to its predecessor. The unit’s smart engineering starts with its Computer Aided Power Control System (CAPC), which the company says automatically and continuously matches hydraulic output to the ever-changing workload, delivering the right amount of power needed for each load while metering out the precise amount of fuel. When extra breakout force is needed, the operator can activate the automatic power boost to provide a 10-second power boost of up to 10 percent additional force. The machine’s straight-travel function automatically holds the machine in a true line while moving forward.
