Production begins on Sennebogen 300-t duty cycle crawler crane for Bauma 2016 premiere


Sennebogen’s latest and largest duty cycle crawler crane is slowly taking shape. Classified as a 300-metric ton machine, the Sennebogen 6300 has an impressive size and is arousing curiosity with its premiere at Bauma 2016 in Munich, Germany, on April 11-17, 2016.

Managing director Erich Sennebogen said, “With the latest Sennebogen 6300, we are creating a duty cycle crawler crane that will surpass everything that has come before it.

“Every part has been designed for maximum durability, the base frame is solid steel to ideally absorb forces during continuous use, and we also spared no expense in high-quality, solid components. We are currently expanding our production areas in plant 2 in order to have the organization required to process future orders.”

Even the transport dimensions promise great things: the huge duty cycle crawler crane measures 12m in length; the crawler tracks alone are 9.5m long, with a track width of 6.8m for stability and easy maneuverability; and the green uppercarriage and solid counterweight plates bring the machine to a prestigious overall weight of 310 tons. The uppercarriage alone weighs around 100 tons and will have to be transported to the trade fair in Munich, Germany, on a low-bed trailer.

More than 60 years of experience in designing and developing duty cycle crawler cranes has gone into this project. The extreme hydraulic power in particular allows for demanding, dynamic use under extreme loads, for example in dredging, mining and special underground engineering operations.

Sennebogen’s proven modular concept opens up versatile variants, such as an 80m main boom that is available for use with lifting hooks. The 6300 duty cycle crawler crane, with hydraulic power up to 350 bar, a 2,000-liter hydraulic tank and oversized hydraulic lines and valves, is also ideal as a drive unit for hydraulic attachments.
