Sennebogen LLC recently announced the launch of its latest line of Sennebogen 835 and 840 D Series purpose-built material handlers. Long considered to be the company’s workhorses and the all-purpose machines of choice for many customers, the new 835 and 840 D Series offer the same safety and comfort features as the 825 and 830 D Series machines. The new models come equipped with powerful and emissions-compliant Cummins Tier III engines.

“These new models, already in production, underline our commitment to bringing our customers cost-efficient, reliable purpose-built material handlers with the kind of safety and comfort features they require and have come to expect from Sennebogen,” said Constantino Lannes, president of Sennebogen LLC.

Since entering the North American market in 2000 with its purpose-built material handlers, as opposed to modified excavators, Sennebogen has prided itself on offering factory-engineered solutions to its customers’ onsite application needs. Always cognizant of the fact that safety issues are not generic in nature, but unique to each customer’s working environment, Sennebogen engineers have come up with practical solutions that address these needs.

“We have listened to the concerns about operator safety expressed by leading industry spokespersons and our customers around the world. Our engineers have worked to incorporate many of their suggestions into our D Series models,” said Erich Sennebogen, owner and managing director of Sennebogen Maschinenfabrik GmbH. “We continue to design and build our machines to meet the highest standards of safety demanded by our customers. The introduction of the new Sennebogen 835 and 840 D Series is the next step in a natural progression.”

All-Purpose Machines

From unloading and loading trucks with scrap, to feeding stationary shears with feedstock, to unloading river barges and feeding hoppers with aggregate material, to stacking and picking up logs and loading them onto waiting railcars, Sennebogen 835 and 840 machines can be found on-the-job in a wide variety of job applications throughout the world.

Available with rubber tires (835 M, 840 M), as a crawler (835 R-HD, 840 R-HD), a pedestal-mounted machine (835 special, 840 special) or as an electrically-driven machine, the new Sennebogen 835 and 840 D Series incorporates the following safety and comfort features:

• A sliding door combined with the adjacent catwalk, which provides an easy and safe way for the operator to step into and out of the cab without the awkwardness of a swinging door hitting the catwalk rail

• A cab position that provides easy access for the operator to get to and from the cab via a small set of stairs and hand-rails

• Upgraded air conditioning with climate control systems in the cab that create a comfortable atmosphere that keeps operators alert, attentive and undistracted

• Improved access to maintenance areas, such as a centralized undercarriage greasing point, making maintenance easier and safer

• A handrail on top of the upper carriage for a safe working environment

• An ergonomically designed cab for more operator comfort

Gary Brouillette, general manager of the Landfill Division of Samsula Waste Inc. in Florida, spoke highly of the features on his company’s Sennebogen 825 D Series machine.

“One of the reasons we selected this unit was due to the distinctive cab on the 825 D Series, which is loaded with new features designed to increase operator safety, comfort and productivity. Our service techs also like it for the ease of access to the maintenance area.

“Being in Florida, our operators also appreciate the new climate control systems and the view from the hydraulically operated cab is perfect. It’s ideal, especially when they are feeding our horizontal wood grinder.”

The Sennebogen 835 D Series comes with these standard features:

• Operating weight of 100,000 lbs. (45,359 kg)

• 264 hp (197 kW) Cummins diesel engine

“The new Sennebogen 835 and 840 D Series is a welcome addition to our green line of material handlers,” said Lannes. “From the feedback we have received to date, these two machines will be very popular attractions at the ISRI show.”
