Twente B.V. has specialized in the storage and handling of all types of bulk goods since 2004. It is primarily animal feed that is shipped via the Twente Canal and unloaded with the new SENNEBOGEN 835 Mobile. The current E-Series machine replaces a proven B-Series 835, which with 26,000 operating hours has reliably done its service. Compared with the predecessor machine, now for the first time, Twente is relying on the electrically operated variant. It is not just the 50 % reduction in operating costs that convinces. The machine is also significantly quieter in operation and very service-friendly. For the employees the work environment has become more pleasant, more comfortable, and more quiet, reports operator Henry Louwrink. In direct comparison with the predecessor machine the new 835 is more powerful, and even more reliable in daily operation. The combination of a strong hydraulic system and simple control enables fast and safe work.

The SENNEBOGEN 835 is fitted with equipment of 18 m in length and a 160 kW electric motor. Power is supplied via a cable that is safely installed in the ground. Through the combination of mobile undercarriage and electric drive, the machine offers flexible implementation and can be easily converted, maintaining however the advantages of the electric drive. In addition to economic aspects, the concern for the environment also counts. Emission-free operation and low-noise work, combined with the use of biodegradable hydraulic oils make the SENNEBOGEN 835 a particularly green machine.

The overview from the industrial Maxcab of the 835 is ideal. For this purpose, the hydraulic cab elevation function that bridges a height differential of 2.7 m was increased by an additional meter. The contiguous windshield and a floor window together with three surroundings cameras offer an optimal overview of the work area. Thus operator Louwrink not only has an unobstructed view of the feed hopper, he also has the ship in constant view.

Statement:"We have long been convinced of the SENNEBOGEN material handling machines. The new 835 Electro impresses with minimal operating costs and it was specially designed for our requirements in the area of bulk goods handling." CEO Johan Stufken, Op- en Overslagbebrijf Twente B.V.
