Wachtberg Kompost relies on the 355 E telehandler from SennebogenPublished 10/5 at 13:58
At the Wachtberg composting plant there are many different tasks to be done. For this you need a true all round machine, which has been supplied by Sennebogen.
Since 1993, Wachtberg Kompost has been processing organic material into high quality compost, soil and bark mulch. To ensure that the sorting and loading of the material, the decision was made to acquire a Sennebogen 355 E telehandler, supplied by Jungbluth Baumaschinen GmbH. This is used to deal with materials received by the company, sorting large amounts of green waste, root woods and other untreated garden waste. These do however hinder manoeuvrability, but the steering system of the telehandler reduces the turning radius of the machine to less than 4m.
Everything in view
A shredder is used to chop bark into bark mulch, with loading efficiency improved due to the 4.25m elevating cab of telehandler which provides views into the shredder's loading opening for precise loading and to prevent possible blockages. Mr. Riebau, owner of Wachtberg Kompost, says, “For us, the 355 E is a multi-talent, which simplifies the processing of green residues as well as material handling and loading considerably. Above all, the elevating cab gives us a constant overview of the site and also of the trucks. Thus the 355 E has become indispensable for us.”
Once shredded, the bark mulch is stacked very high. This is easy with the 355 E, with the combination of telescopic handler and wheel loader making it ideally equipped. The robust steel construction of the telescopic boom has a stacking height of 8.5m, power transmission into the bucket uses ‘Z-kinematics’ and the variable travel drive provide the driver with the perfect working conditions. This enables even heavily compacted and heavy compost to be extracted, with the innovative control of the drive unit automatically providing the driver with the optimum mix of pull-thrust force and travel speed. The 355 E can be equipped with the Volvo quick change system on request, an additional hydraulic circuit on the boom head and a permanent function for the standard auxiliary hydraulics.
