Sennebogen presented the world’s largest material handler, the 895 E, at Bauma in April. During that time, it was on display at the factory premises in Straubing.
Sennebogen has announced plans to deliver the first of its new 895 E Series model to North American customers next year.
At an estimated 390 tons and reach of more than 130 ft. (40 m), the 895 E is reputedly the largest material handler ever built. Sennebogen first unveiled the gigantic machine to the public at the firm's world headquarters in Straubing, Germany, coinciding with the Bauma 2019 exposition taking place at nearby Munich.
Bigger, Higher, Further
That's how the development in material handlers over the last few years can be summarized. Now Sennebogen has taken the limits of material handling a step further with the world's largest purpose-built unit, earmarked to take a prominent place in the manufacturer's growing fleet of green machines focused on ocean and river port applications.
The development of the new material handler has focused particularly on energy efficiency and operator comfort that Sennebogen is known for. The Sennebogen 895 E comes with the company's innovative energy recovery system and will be offered in multiple drive versions. Multiple cab configurations also are available to give operators the optimum view of their work environment.
"The dimensions of this, our largest material handler, make everything else that we ever produced seem small," said Constantino Lannes, president of Sennebogen LLC. "The operational weight alone is around 780,000 lbs."
The 895 E is powered by a 755 hp (563 kW) diesel motor or optional 670 hp (500 kW) electric drive motor. It's offered with a choice of three standard undercarriages including a crawler mount, rail mount and even a mobile model running with 14 sets of wheels. With its long reach and a maximum lift capacity of up to 50 tons, the 895 E gives major harbors a new option for loading containers and large steel coils, as well as the usual fare of bulk materials and general cargo.
Up in the 895's PortCab, operators oversee their work zone from an eye level of up to 72 ft. (22 m). In the optional Skylift cab, the operator can move the cab forward over 36 ft. (11 m) in order to maneuver into the best vantage point of the loading area.
More details on the design and performance of the 895 E Series destined for North American delivery will be confirmed as the units are readied for shipping.
