The latest generation of the SENNEBOGEN telescopic crawler crane was officially launched at the end of 2014. Now one of the first machines is being used to construct industrial buildings. Max Bögl is constructing a warehouse in the Tauernfeld/Deining industrial zone near its headquarters in Neumarkt in der Oberpfalz to support the company's traffic engineering endeavors.
With the SENNEBOGEN 6113, which will soon utilize its maximum safe working load of 120 t in the construction of wind turbines, will hoist primarily steel building components and pre-cast concrete elements up to 12 t in weight. And already after only a few days of use has it settled into its new workplace: "Telescoping and driving with load using the Full-Power boom in particular is what convinced me right from the start. It can move even heavy parts anywhere on site so safely. At the same time, the boom length of 40 m allows me to operate over an extensive area from a central position," reported the operator.
Compared to tower cranes that the operator controlled until recently, the telescopic crane is not only ready for use faster and can adapt to various environments, it is also easy and quick to transport on a lowbed trailer thanks to the self-assembly system. The telescoping undercarriage navigates the terrain with ease and boasts impressive stability, even with dynamic work. The machine can be safely operated up to an inclination of four degrees. The tiltable Maxcab comfort cab lets the operator keep an eye on everything. He noted how quiet the machine is. He can barely hear the 168 kW Cummins diesel engine in the rear and he expressed how impressed he is with the crane's low fuel consumption. The SENCON control and diagnostic system supports the operator in everyday operations, lets the operator make individual fine adjustments directly from the panel and the integrated load moment limiter can be monitored with ease.
Thanks to the service-friendly design with a central lubricating strip and straight-line motor, all components are easily accessible and simple to maintain. The side steps and a gallery surrounding the uppercarriage ensure safety during daily operation.
The new SENNEBOGEN 120 t telescopic crane is being used by the Max Bögl company to hoist steel components and pre-cast concrete elements to construct industrial buildings. The 6113 E-series boasts ease of use and top flexibility.
