Rail-road excavators

Sixteen modern and powerful Liebherr rail-road excavators in various performance classes that have been specially designed for rail applications combine high-quality wheeled excavator technology with high-performance and flexible application options for your construction project – even in the most difficult of working conditions. Many attachment tools, such as trench clearing buckets, sleeper changers, clamshell buckets, backhoe buckets or Movax side pile drivers for ramming steel pipes or posts, also guarantee the tailored and most cost-effective realisation of your construction project.

Sustainable for section, tunnel and people

Most of our road-rail excavators have been fitted with exhaust-particulate filters and therefore satisfy the special demands that are associated with structural reconstruction measures, e.g. in tunnel sections. It goes without saying that our experienced machinists possess all the licenses required for working on track systems.

HERING sustainability

At HERING, we see ourselves as pioneers in the field of sustainability. As early as 1996, we were the first construction company in Germany to obtain EMAS certification. Every three years, we publish an environmental statement documenting our goals and how we have achieved them. Actually, for the first time, we published a sustainability report with an integrated environmental statement in accordance with EMAS - a logical next step in view of our ecological and social responsibility. It documents how we deal internally and externally with the issues that are essential to our future viability.
