Sennebogen introduced the new 855 E model to its line-up of material handlers and completes the largest product line of purpose-built material handlers worldwide.

With an operating weight of approximately 160,000 lb. (72,574 kg) the new 855 features reach packages from 59 to 68 ft. (18 to 21 m), a powerful 305 hp (227 kW) Cummins Tier IVf diesel engine as well as Sennebogen’s “Green Hybrid” technology. The new 855 E as well as all other models are available as rubber tired, crawler and stationary versions and can be equipped with diesel engines or electric motors.

30 Percent More Energy Savings

Enhanced by Sennebogen’s Green Hybrid system, the 855 E design is easily recognized by the large energy recovery cylinder mounted in between the boom’s two hoist cylinders. The hydraulics of this energy recovery cylinder effectively reduces the energy (fuel) demand for each lift cycle by as much as 30 percent, according to the manufacturer.

“The Green Hybrid system captures energy on every downstroke and stores it in separate gas accumulators at the rear of the machine,” said Constantino Lannes, president. “It then releases this stored power on each lift to assist in raising the boom and its load. The principle is similar to a spring being compressed and then releasing its energy by allowing it to expand. Furthermore, the system is a very simple design using a standard hydraulic cylinder that connect to the accumulators at the back of the unit.”

Sennebogen’s model 855 E, 860 E, 870 E and 875 E are all equipped with the green hybrid system.

Operator Comfort & Safety

The 855 E also is equipped with the newest version of the Sennebogen Maxcab. The new Maxcab includes a wide range of ergonomic comfort features, as well as large windows and joystick controls for travel providing an unobstructed view of the complete work zone from the operator’s seat.

A two-camera system is standard delivering operators a clear view to the right side past the boom and to the rear of the machine. Bulletproof glass also is standard in the Maxcab, providing additional operator safety. Additional features like a permanent catwalk for safe and easy cab entry and exit, handrails on top of the upper carriage as well as many more safety related items that are standard.
