The first use of the machine was also highly symbolic, with the former CSU Party Headquarters in Munich's Nymphenburgerstraße giving way for a new building. Right in the tightly-packed inner-city zone, sure instincts are needed if a building is to be demolished piece by piece. In this case the hydraulic handler has considerable advantages over other dynamic demolition designs such as, for example, wrecking balls. Above all, in built-up areas buildings can be demolished without any vibrations. The machine can capture individual facade elements and entire building structures with pinpoint precision using the demolition shears or grab and bring the parts safely to the ground. At the same time, the demolition material handler can also reduce and load the material on site. The driver has a perfect view of his working from the cab, which can be inclined by 30 degrees and elevated 2.70 m, and additional cameras. In total the SENNEBOGEN 870 E, with its tripartite demolition equipment, gives a reach height of 33 m and a reach width of up to 20 m with comfortable load capacities up to 4 t.
"Delicate and precise work, as is often required in demolition, particularly if, as is the case here, it has to be carried out in extremely tight inner-city areas. Thanks to the cab that can be elevated and inclined, and with the help of several surrounding cameras, I always have by work site in view."
