Sennebogen Presents First G-Series Material Handler
Published: 30/12, 2022
The Sennebogen 835 G Hybrid is the first of a completely new generation of material handlers, combining the Bavarian machine manufacturer’s experience in demanding applications with a new, forward-looking generation of machines.
With the new series version of the popular 835, Sennebogen has immediately dared to create an absolute all-rounder in material handling. With equipment lengths of up to 65.6 ft (20m), the machine is aimed at applications in scrap and timber handling as well as port operations. As usual, the Sennebogen modular principle allows customization using numerous undercarriage variants, from mobile undercarriage to crawler tracks and stationary solutions.
The 835 G has an economical 188 kW Stage V diesel engine supplemented by the “Green Hybrid” energy recovery system, which considerably increases overall operational performance. As a result, the machine gains additional working speed and even increases handling performance with lower consumption. In concrete terms, this means a reduction of around 30% in fuel costs. The system itself functions like a tensioned spring that supports the boom’s working movement. The components, a third hydraulic cylinder on the boom and nitrogen accumulator at the rear, are therefore not only safely installed, but also virtually maintenance-free.
The efficiency of the material handler has been further increased and the hydraulics have been completely reworked – every hose guide, every diameter, every valve and all the flow cross-sections have been examined and optimized. All this has resulted in genuine tuning of the hydraulics through the sensible relief of pressure on the pump system.
Operator comfort and safety are major themes of the new series
An important point in the further development of the new generation is dedicated to operators and service personnel. The new Maxcab is being used for the first time in the new series. The operator’s workplace has been optimized, and all settings can be conveniently adjusted via the new, foiled keyboard and the SENCON display. Air conditioning elements and air flow as well as shelves and storage compartments have also been optimized.
Some of the original 835’s tried-and-tested features remain, including the established sliding door for easy entry and the ergonomic joysticks. The new continuous front and side windows offer an unobstructed view of the surroundings. The design and kinematics of the cab elevation have been further improved and now elevate the operator in an even more comfortable way. The cab can be moved continuously over a height difference of 9 ft (2.80m) as standard, and optionally up to 11.5 ft (3.50m).
Sennebogen has also optimized all aspects of service and daily maintenance. The components are even more accessible, and work is made easier thanks to a clearly structured machine design and central maintenance points. Numerous platforms and grab handles ensure the highest level of safety for people and machines.
The 835 G Hybrid is also available in the electric version too, offering operating cost reductions of by up to 50 %. The environmentally-friendly, emission-free electric motor offers low-noise and vibration-free operation even in the most demanding of situations.
