With an operating weight of 70,500 kg, the 970E excels in heavy-weight applications. This tough and large excavator combines its unbeatable performance with high visibility and operator comfort and safety.


Unrivalled Performance

Powered by the latest QSX15 Cummins engine and with its maximum torque output, the 970E achieves higher breakout force at lower engine speeds. The powertrain is perfectly matched with LiuGong’s advanced hydraulics to deliver faster swing speeds and cycle times, every shift.

Built Tough

Heavy duty rollers, a reinforced idler frame and an optional full track guard ensures the undercarriage is extra tough, maximising productivity and eliminating the risk of unplanned downtime.

Work Safer

Offering a certified ROPS and FOPS cab, the 970E puts the operator’s safety first. The cab is also fully pressurised and climate-controlled to give operators a cleaner, quieter and safer workplace.

Greater Visibility

With a large glass surface area, spacious cab, intelligently positioned mirrors and rear-view camera, the 970E gives operators the best view of the site, from every angle, improving job site safety. With enhanced visibility, 970E operators can see and do more, safely.
