Sennebogen’s “green” material handlers
Design updates to Sennebogen's line of material handlers includes, Eco-Mode, which combines reduced engine speed with an automatic idle control that helps reduce fuel consumption.
“They’re good for the environment and they’re easy on the budget,” is how Constantino Lannes, President of SENNEBOGEN LLC defined the most recent round of design updates featured in the new 830, 835 and 840 model material handlers introduced recently to the North American market.
“E-Series SENNEBOGEN material handlers mark the beginning of a new generation of machines building on fuel-saving and environmentally-friendly efficiencies throughout their power train and hydraulic system,” he says. “The result is a line-up of Tier IV-compliant machines that also reduce operating costs.”
The SENNEBOGEN purpose-built material handlers are engineered for continuous use in demanding applications such as log handling, scrap recycling and demolition, and ports facilities. Introduced by SENNEBOGEN as the “Green Efficiency” models, the E-Series builds on SENNEBOGEN’s established standards for high performance with low fuel consumption, industry-leading operator comfort and maximum safety.
A key feature of the “Green Efficiency” design is the innovative “Eco-Mode” and no-load automatic stop function. The “Eco-Mode” setting combines reduced engine speed with an automatic idle control and a start-stop system that will effectively reduce fuel consumption.
Thanks to a new intercooler design with direct mechanical drive, the E-Series fan system delivers maximum air supply right from the start. With an additional temperature-dependant oil and water cooler, the system’s materials and components all reach their operating temperature quickly and uniformly, which in turn reduces overall energy demand.
On all models, Cummins engines provide ample reserve power, even under high loads, setting new standards for low noise emissions. With reinforced cab windows and insulated sound transmission paths, sound pressure in the operator’s cab measures 4 dB lower – a noise reduction of more than half! In all models, NOx (nitrogen oxide) emissions have been halved by the E-Series exhaust aftertreatment system and particulate matter has been reduced by 90%.
As well, the 830, 835 and 840 are still offered in electric-drive models, which can reduce operating costs by up to 50% more when compared to diesel drives. Powered by 100% emission-free electric motors, these clean electric-drive material handlers offer low noise, vibration free operation for an even more comfortable operator environment.
The elevating maXCab comfort cab offers outstanding visibility and operator ergonomics. Its distinctive sliding door with entry step and handrail, featured as standard on E-Series, provides today’s safest access to the operator station. The SENCON control system and an array of periphery cameras help the operator to operate safely, even in congested and busy work zones.
The E-Series models also make maintenance and servicing tasks easy. Centrally accessible service points and simple, computer-free engineering save time and effort in everyday operation while increasing uptime through every service cycle.
With a wide range of mobility choices such as the rubber-tired undercarriage or wide track crawler and several optional boom and stick configurations, the SENNEBOGEN E-Series models adapt easily to any task where large quantities of material have to be moved quickly and consistently.
