Sennebogen unveils its first ‘G’ series material handlerPublished 20/12, 2022 at 10:41
The Sennebogen 835 G Hybrid material handler is the start of a new generation of machines, the G series. The series is equipped with the latest generation of engine, an innovative ‘Green Hybrid’ energy recovery system which have been developed using decades of Sennebogen expertise.
The Sennebogen 835 G Hybrid is the first of a completely new generation of material handlers. Ten years after the launch of the extremely successful ‘E’ series, the Bavarian machine manufacturer is taking another major step. The G series combines the experience gained from demanding material handling with a new, forward looking generation of machines. With the new series, Sennebogen aims to create an all-rounder. With equipment lengths of up to 20m, the machine is aimed at applications in scrap and timber handling as well as port operations. As usual, the Sennebogen modular principle allows customisation using numerous undercarriage variants, from mobile undercarriage to crawler tracks and stationary solutions.
The 835 G has an economical 188kW Stage V diesel engine which is supplemented by the Green Hybrid energy recovery system, which is said to considerably increase the system's overall operational performance. As a result, the machine is said to gain additional working speed and increases handling performance with lower fuel consumption (Sennebogen states that this delivers 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 theme of efficiency runs through all the innovations in the G series. The efficiency of the material handler has been further increased and the hydraulics has been completely reworked.
An important feature in the further development of the new generation machine is dedicated to operators and service personnel, with the new ‘Maxcab’ being used for the first time in the new series. The operator’s workplace has been optimised, 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 optimised. Many tried and tested features however 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, whilst 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 2.80m as standard, and optionally up to 3.50m.
Sennebogen has also optimised service and daily maintenance features. The components are said to be now even more accessible, and work is made easier thanks to a clearly structured machine design and central maintenance points. Numerous platforms and grab handles provide high levels of safety. The 835 G Hybrid is also available in an electric version. This is said to be able to reduce operating costs 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.
