03/08/2019 Belgium: first Liebherr R 936 Compact crawler excavator delivered to Elboka
- The R 936 Compact is equipped with a 6.2 m boom and a 3.2 m stick
- Elboka N.V. exclusively uses Liebherr crawler and wheeled excavators
- A compact model for more versatility on site
Last August, SOMTP Belgium delivered the first of the new R 936 Compacts in Benelux to earthmoving company Elboka N.V. With an operating weight of around 36 tonnes, the R 936 Compact crawler excavator is the largest compact crawler excavator produced by Liebherr-France SAS.
Like the other compact models developed by Liebherr, the R 936 Compact is ideal for applications operating in confined spaces, making it perfect for urban operations. With a short rear turning radius of 1.98 m, the R 936 Compact offers maximum safety and flexibility on site.
The R 936 Compact's powerful engine develops 190 kW/258 hp, in line with Stage IV/Tier 4 Final and using Liebherr SCR technology. This technology, developed and produced by Liebherr, operates without external recirculation of exhaust gases (EGR), a diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC) or a diesel particulate filter (DPF). This guarantees superior performance and reliability.
At Elboka N.V., the Liebherr R936 Compact crawler excavator has an operating weight of around 36 tonnes and a bucket capacity from 1.00 m3 to 2.15 m3. The company also opted for 900-mm-wide crawlers and an LC undercarriage to minimise ground pressure. The mono boom is 6.2 m long and the stick 3.2 m.
The equipment of the R 936 Compact is designed with cast steel articulations to better respond to varying application constraints. In addition, its high digging forces guarantee maximum productivity on site.
Elboka's Liebherr machines
All of Elboka N.V.'s crawler and wheeled excavators are Liebherr models. The largest crawler excavator weighs 45 tonnes. Elboka N.V. has a total of four A 914 wheeled excavators, a PR 726 crawler tractor, three wheel loaders (L506 Compact, L 544 and L 514 stereo) and several Liebherr crawler excavators. In addition to the R 936 Compact excavator, SOMTP recently supplied Elboka N.V. with an R 936 crawler excavator and an A914 Compact wheeled excavator with GPS and Tiltrotator – the only one of its kind in Belgium.
Elboka N.V. has four Liebherr compact excavator models: the R 914 Compact, the R 920 Compact, the R 926 Compact and now the R 936 Compact. The latter has just been added to the existing machine fleet. In Belgium, Liebherr compact excavators are the number one choice for numerous companies and hirers. Their short rear turning radius and high performance substantially increase versatility and efficiency on all kinds of sites.
