Sennebogen has underlined its material handling pedigree with the addition of a hybrid model to its portfolio. The new 855 E material handler becomes the third in the range of vehicles, positioning itself between the existing 850 E and 860 E.
Powered by a 231kW diesel engine that meets Tier 5 emissions standards, the machine has automatic idle-stop and eco-mode functions. A Tier 3a version with 224kW and an electric motor is also available.
Lifting capacity in the new model is 7.7 tons and equipment lengths are between 17m and 21m.
The so-called green hybrid system included on the machine means power is increased while energy savings of 30% can be realized.
A Sennebogen spokesperson said, “In any situation where material is handled in continuous operation and the height of the equipment needs to be changed accordingly, the green hybrid system not only provides power assistance but also means that much less drive power is required from the diesel engine. This results in systematic fuel cost savings.
“The system’s reliability and safety has been proven in customer use across the globe. An energy recovery cylinder mounted on the boom in between the two hoist cylinders offsets the weight of the boom in its function, significantly reducing energy costs by up to 30%.”
