As a material handler with flexible counterbalancing – referred to as the equilibrium concept – the new SENNEBOGEN 8100 EQ with a range of 27 m comfortably covers an area of just under 2,500 sqm. The special advantage here is that, thanks to the constant balancing of the EQ principle, a relatively small motor is sufficient to power the machine. The machine used at Zlompol is fitted with a 110 kW electric motor. According to Tokarczyk, a comparable hydraulic material handler would have needed at least a 200 kW motor to provide comparable power levels and cover the operating area. The combination of the balance principle and the electric drive enables the company to save up to 75% of the operating costs.
"Further advantages of the electric machine include lower service and energy costs, increased service life of the components, no fuel stops, and quiet, emission-free operation – which is particularly appreciated by our neighbors," adds Janusz Majewski.
For the driver who feeds the 1250 PS Lindemann shredder with the 8100 EQ, one key thing has changed: the view. With an eye height of 10.5 m, he 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. Managing director Cimoszynski also likes to swap his office chair for the driver seat in the comfortable Maxcab industrial cab from time to time for the same reason. For him, one thing is clear: "By purchasing the new SENNEBOGEN 8100, we have invested in the future. At the same time, we have found a reliable partner in Komatsu Poland."
