Sennebogen Launches New 865 E Hybrid Material Handler

Sennebogen has launched its new premium material handler for port handling, the Sennebogen 865 E Hybrid.

While its 860 E material handler had international success in port handling and scrap processing, Sennebogen developers gave it a major update and included technological innovations in the 865 E. The result is a machine that is faster, stronger and more efficient, the company said.

The first Sennebogen 865 E Hybrid machines have already been delivered to customers, and Sennebogen said they have praised the increase in performance and noticed financial savings.

The Sennebogen 865 E is tailored to the requirements of port handling. It includes a higher load capacity and improved performance along with efficiency-enhancing measures. It has a highly efficient diesel engine in the stage V emissions category and has an output of 261 kW. In combination with the Green Hybrid energy recovery system, the material handler saves on fuel, the company said. Sennebogen estimates that based on an annual throughput of 4,000 operating hours, up to 40,000 liters of fuel per year can be saved compared to conventional diesel machines.

Depending on customer requirements, the Sennebogen 865 E can be individually configured to suit local requirements. In particular, the equipment solutions, which have a range of 18 to 25 meters, have been extended to include three additional solutions compared to the previous model. The machine has two particularly weight-optimized port sticks, and the engineers at Sennebogen were also able to increase the load capacities by around 10 percent for the other equipment solutions.

“This means that the machine not only lifts more but can handle even more bulk and general cargo in each work cycle using a variety of equipment options,” Sennebogen said.

Sennebogen also thought of operator comfort and safety in the 865 E Hybrid. The machine comes with the spacious Maxcab. As standard, the cab can be elevated up to 2.7 meters with the option of additional large-capacity cabs and elevations up to an eye level of around 14 meters. The operator is supported by a comprehensive camera system and intelligent control systems such as the Safety Boom Lift. This grab automation system protects the hull, port surfaces and equipment by automatically lifting the grab when the attachment is closed.

As with all new material handlers from Sennebogen, the 865 E Hybrid is also available as an electric material handler with a 250 kW engine, offering savings potential along with emission-free operation, the company said.
