The SENNEBOGEN 855 E-Series Hybrid Steps Up Productivity And Cost Efficiency For Heavy Lift Applications

SENNEBOGEN has announced the release of a new Green Hybrid material handler built to meet the needs of heavy lift applications in seaports, barge facilities, demanding mills, and industrial sites.

The SENNEBOGEN 855 E-Series Hybrid models has an extended reach and increased load capacity, the beefed-up 855 E can often allow equipment managers to replace older makes and models with a smaller, more economical machine that delivers equal or greater productivity, and is equipped with the innovative green hybrid system

With an operating weight of approx. 160,000 lb. (72.5 tons) the new 855 features reach packages from 59 to 68 feet (18 to 21 meters), a powerful 305 HP (227 kW) Cummins Tier 4f diesel engine as well as SENNEBOGEN’s “Green Hybrid” technology. The new 855 E as well as all other models are available as rubber tired, crawler and stationary versions and can be equipped with diesel engines or electric motors.

30% More Energy Savings
Enhanced by SENNEBOGEN’s innovative Green Hybrid system, the 855 E design is easily recognized by the large energy recovery cylinder mounted in between the boom’s two hoist cylinders. The hydraulics of this energy recovery cylinder effectively reduces the energy (fuel) demand for each lift cycle by as much as 30%.

According to Constantino Lannes, “The Green Hybrid system captures energy on every downstroke, and stores it in separate gas accumulators at the rear of the machine. It then releases this stored power on each lift to assist in raising the boom and its load. The principle is similar to a spring being compressed and then releasing its energy by allowing it to expand. Furthermore, the system is a very simple design using a standard hydraulic cylinder that connect to the accumulators at the back of the unit.”

By opting for one of SENNEBOGEN’s eGreen electric-drive systems, facilities can achieve even greater reductions in operating costs. Along with saving on energy bills, electric power reduces maintenance costs and downtime with service intervals twice as long as units powered by diesel engines. The advantages of eGreen power include eliminating fuel/oil filters and oil changes, and 24/7 operation with no stops for refueling. SENNEBOGEN offers a variety of choices for electric power supply, including a range of mobile solutions. To support the switch from diesel electric, SENNEBOGEN can conduct detailed route analyses and project planning tailored to specific applications and facilities.

Operator Comfort & Safety
The 855 E is also equipped with the newest version of the SENNEBOGEN Maxcab. The new Maxcab includes a wide range of ergonomic comfort features, as well as large windows and joystick controls for travel providing an unobstructed view of the complete work zone from the operator’s seat.

A 2-camera system is standard delivering operators a clear view to the right side past the boom and to the rear of the machine. Bulletproof glass is also standard in the Maxcab, providing additional operator safety. Additional features like a permanent catwalk for safe and easy cab entry and exit, handrails on top of the upper carriage as well as many more safety related items that are standard.
