Up to 30% energy savings: SENNEBOGEN 850 E-Series material handlers for scrap handling and ports

At the bauma 2016 trade fair, SENNEBOGEN will be presenting the current E-Series of the 850 material handler: A machine for demanding material handling at ports, scrapyards, or for industrial use. The new machine generation boasts convenient lifting capacities of 5.7 t with a maximum reach of up to 21 m, and it saves up to 30% more fuel thanks to the innovative Green Hybrid energy recovery system.


For material handling at scrapyards and ports, the SENNEBOGEN 850 has impressed customers worldwide in its machine category for many years. With the new E-Series generation, SENNEBOGEN has optimized its material handlers from scratch and adapted them to the increased requirements. The new SENNEBOGEN 850 has a powerful 224 kW diesel engine complying with Tier 4f emission standards, including automatic idle stop and EcoMode. A Tier 3a version and an electric motor are also available. With a lifting capacity of 5.7 t with a maximum equipment length of 21 m, the machine impresses with comfortable reserves in scrap and port handling.

Now for the SENNEBOGEN 850 as well: The Green Hybrid system 

While the Green Hybrid energy recovery system was previously only used in the larger models, SENNEBOGEN will now be presenting the system in the 850 as well at the bauma. This system 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 up to 30%. This additional hydraulic cylinder stores the energy produced by lowering the boom in compressed gas cylinders placed in the rear of the machine. This accumulated energy is then provided during the next stroke. The principle is similar to a spring being compressed and then releasing its energy when it is allowed to expand.

Maximum comfort and ideal overview for the operator

The new SENNEBOGEN 850 offers operators a comfortable work space with an ideal overview from the Maxcab cab, which can be elevated as standard. This can be continuously adjusted 3.0 m in height and moved 2.6 m forwards.
