As a Service Technician, I am regularly on site with the customer. This way I find out first hand how our machines actually perform and prove their worth for the customer. Hence why after twelve years at Liebherr I am still just as much a passionate supporter of our products as I was on the first day.

  • Service Engineering at its best!
    Somewhere in Mexico near a mining jobsite: a Liebherr service engineer is having his breakfast coffee sitting in front of his laptop. He is checking his daily inspection sheet and preparing himself for another busy day. For 3 months now, he is responsible for the smooth functioning of seven HS 8300 equipped with dragging buckets. The machines are in duty 24/7 and the dynamic work operations are demanding everything from the machines and from the service engineers. However, he is still in a good mood as his specialized education in electrics, hydraulics and mechanics at Liebherr prepared him perfectly for those types of jobs. Yesterday he had a meeting with the customer in order to discuss the service schedule for today: one of the machines will have one of the regular service checks consisting of oil changes for gears, engines and hydraulics, checking the valve clearance of the engine as well as having a close look on the condition of hoses, ropes and winches. At another machine, he diagnosed a problem with an electrical component. After a short conversation with the operator and a personal assessment of the affected component, he narrowed down the problem and already has an idea on his mind. He has to find a quick solution because every machine not operating will cost our customer money. At the end of the day all seven machines are operating and the customer is shaking hands with our engineer as another successful day is fading away. After 6 months on the jobsite he will return to his home base and is already looking forward to his next challenging servicing job somewhere in the world bringing him new impressions of foreign languages and cultures a tourist will never enjoy!

  • Applying technical expertise globally
    As a service technician, you are the direct contact person on the customer’s site. You will be called in to deal with complex technical issues, and provide on-site support for the customer’s specialist personnel or the sales companies. When new machines are launched (e.g. in the Australian market), you will spend several weeks with the customer, and act as a technical advisor. In addition, service technicians receive important information on regional conditions, communicate this knowledge internally, and therefore make an important contribution to the ongoing development of our products.
