Managing Director Patrik Snells is already the proud owner of 12 Liebherr machines and was given the opportunity by the mine operators to increase the flow volume, thanks to the high demand for Swedish iron ore. That's why, following his investment in a R 976 in 2018, he has now decided on this machine which has been designed especially for quarrying. Apart from the safety features, like with the new R 980 SME, the convenient and safe hydraulically folding access ladder, Patrik Snells also appreciates the efficiency and availability of the machines. Diesel consumption and production capacity are crucial with the 24-hour operation of such a machine.

Patrik Snells proudly mentions that it is a pleasure to see how much he saves per hour with all his Liebherr machines compared to competitor machines. For him it is clear that the motto of Bauma 2019 has turned into reality: "Together, now & tomorrow" – together with Liebherr he is competitive today and will also be able to expand his position in the future.
