With its reach of 88 ft. (27 m), Zlompol’s new Sennebogen 8100 EQ comfortably covers an area of almost 27,000 sq. ft. (2500 sq m). At 35 ft. (10.7 m) high, the operator can see the entire operation.

Zlompol Sp.J., based in Tarczyn in Poland is celebrating 25 years in the scrap recycling business with a new Sennebogen 8100 EQ material handler. Managing Director Robert Cimoszynsk said the firm chose a machine that improves productivity while reducing energy costs and allows them to build their business at the same time.

“Our new machine can be seen from quite some distance away. People keep coming to admire it. Many people are even making special trips to bring scrap so they can see the new material handler.”

The 8100's EQ counterbalance design, which is a simple linkage, continuously adjusts the machine's large counterweight to reduce the amount of energy required to lift each load. This allows a relatively small 110 kW electric motor to fully power the machine. Without the EQ advantage, a comparable hydraulic material handler would need at least a 200 kW motor to achieve equal power and operating area. Combining the balance principle and the electric drive saves the company up to 75 percent of the machine's operating costs. Working at an elevation of almost 35 ft. (10.7 m), the operator not only has an unobstructed view of the shredder feed area, but can also keep an eye on the entire yard and all the processes going on around him.
