Sennebogen launches 50-tonne telescopic crawler crane


With a 50-tonne safe working load and proven full-power boom, Sennebogen has added the 653 telescopic crawler crane to its product range. The pick & carry crane features maximum flexibility and easy transport.

The new 653 will join the Sennebogen line-up as a versatile go-to crane for structural engineering and bridge construction. It comes with a 129kW Cummins diesel engine, meeting Tier 4F emission standards, and up to two hydraulically driven 50kN winches, with winching speeds up to 115 m/min.

The boom can be continuously extended and retracted over a length of 30.4m. As with all machines in this series, it is also designed as a full-power boom. This highly robust, maintenance-free system allows for continuous extending and retracting, and is always friction-locked. The machine can be set to any desired boom length variably and quickly via joystick, saving time and enabling effective working. Sennebogen telescopic cranes are quick and agile at any length, especially when working with varying boom lengths. The fly boom extends the maximum reach height to 43.4m.

The crawler undercarriage of the 653 is ideal for working on small or large construction sites, and the machine can be variably driven even at full load. Even in rough terrain, the telescopic crane is impressive with its excellent maneuverability. It can operate on inclines of up to 4° and at just 3m wide, the extendable crawler tracks save space during transport and can be extended out to 4.5m support width when in use. The 5.34m long crawler tracks with optional track shoes up to 800mm wide ensure low ground pressure and optimal stability.

The proven Maxcab comfort cab, with automatic air conditioning and a spring-cushioned seat, offers the crane operator a comfortable working environment and can be tilted up to 15° as standard. An optional hydraulic cab elevator and standard camera system also improve the overview of the work area. The Sencon control and diagnostics system by Sennebogen offers a clear presentation of all operating parameters and easy, intuitive user control, as well as the ability to process error messages quickly. It also reliably monitors the load moment limitation system. The central maintenance and lubrication points are conveniently placed for easy access during maintenance and daily servicing.
