  • Another R 946 for S Blomquist Entreprenad AB
  • Hydraulics, flexibility and stability impress the Swedish company
  • Liebherr-Sverige AB: a competent partner with extensive service network in Sweden

S Blomquist Entreprenad AB has its head office in Gothenburg, Sweden and is primarily involved in earthmoving, demolition and pipe installation in the region. The owner Stefan Blomquist can be regularly seen in the driver's seat of his machines and following good experience with Liebherr crawler excavators he ordered another R 946 LC-V to be delivered in summer 2017.

The current Liebherr R 946 LC-V crawler excavator is the largest machine in the Swedish company's fleet with an operational weight of approx. 50 tons. The six-cylinder diesel engine from Liebherr conforms to the exhaust emissions standards of Stage IIB / Tier 4i with an output of 220kW / 299hp.

Compared with its predecessor, the machine is equipped with a heavier counterweight (9 tons), a LC-V undercarriage with variable and larger track width and higher ground clearance, as well as crawler pads of 900mm. The length of the boom is 6.45m, the stick length is 3.3m. There is also a tilt rotator, which makes the machine extremely versatile.

Stefan Blomquist also purchased a whole range of various working tools for the diverse applications. The versatility and flexibility in day-to-day work guarantee productivity and perfect results.

Liebherr with true conviction

Stefan Blomquist first tested an R 944 C in 2010 at another Liebherr customer’s site. He was immediately impressed by the functionality and power of the hydraulics. Two separate hydraulic circuits enable combined and fluid movements to ensure high operational productivity.

Based on his satisfaction with the existing R 946 LC-V model and the R 944C SHD model, purchased in 2011, Stefan Blomquist placed another order with Liebherr at the start of 2017 for a new R 946 LC-V. The new machine, which conforms to exhaust emissions standard Stage IV/ Tier 4f, will be delivered in summer 2017.

The Liebherr R 946 crawler excavator impresses with its precision and working speed. In addition, there is the wide range of accessories which makes it a very versatile machine: With the tools appropriate for the respective applications, S Blomquist Entreprenad AB is able to meet all requirements.

Stefan Blomquist is convinced he made the right choice: In his opinion, "Liebherr are in a completely different league compared with most other manufacturers, especially when it comes to robustness and quality".

Liebherr network in Sweden – fast and reliable

Stefan Blomquist is also very satisfied with the expertise and support of the Liebherr service network: The company Liebherr-Sverige AB was founded in 2006 and its business segments include the sale and service of Liebherr earthmoving machines.

With six other service centres spread out all over Sweden, professional maintenance of the machines and fast delivery of spare parts are always guaranteed irrespective of the location and time. The service outlet in Gothenburg is responsible for Blomquist's machines.
