Sennebogen has introduced the next generation of its 860 E-series material. Featuring the Green Hybrid energy recovery system, the new material handlers are designed for port use and for scrap handling and offer lifting capacities of 6.2 tonnes with a maximum reach of up to 23 metres (75 feet). The new generation of the 860 series saves up to 30% more fuel than the previous version, Sennebogen says.
With the new generation of E-Series machines, Sennebogen says it has further optimized its material handlers. The new generation of machines is driven by a powerful 261-kilowatt diesel engine complying with Tier 4f emission standards, including automatic idle stop and EcoMode. A Tier 3a version and an electric version also are available. Effectively, the maximum range of the 860 series was increased by 2 metres (6.5 feet) to 23 metres, Sennebogen says, and even with the longest reach, a load of 6.2 tonnes is still possible and within safety limits.
The Sennebogen Green Hybrid energy recovery system features an energy recovery cylinder mounted on the boom in between the two hoist cylinders, offsetting the weight of the boom in its function, significantly reducing energy costs by up to 30%. This additional hydraulic cylinder stores the energy produced when the boom is lowered in compressed gas cylinders placed in the rear of the machine. This accumulated energy is then provided during the next stroke, Sennebogen explains. The principle is similar to a spring being compressed and then releasing its energy when it is allowed to expand. Together with Green Efficiency, maximum energy efficiency is achieved, the company says.
The 860 offers operators a comfortable work space with an overview from the elevating Maxcab cab, Sennebogen says. The Maxcab can be upgraded to the Mastercab, which offers an additional 9 metres (29.5 feet) of rise.
The new E-Series of the 860 supplements the range of Green Line material handlers for port handling and scrap yard applications. Configurations are available for such operations, allowing the machine to be tailored to customer-specific requirements.
The 860 series is available with a mobile undercarriage, crawler undercarriage, pylon variants, gantry solutions and rail undercarriages.
