Freyer GmbH is a family-owned company that can look back on a 100-year history. In 1969 extensive logistics activities were added to the gravel works and material handling operation business sectors. This has formed the basis for the cargo handling in the port of Germersheim in the German state of Rhineland-Palatinate.
Located directly on the Rhine, Freyer today is a specialist for cargo handling, storage and transport of bulk goods and piece goods.
The Sales and Service Partner Schlüter Baumaschinen placed the new SENNEBOGEN 860 with Freyer for these extremely varied requirements and has been managing the project since.
Loading takes place at several locations in the port, either onto trucks, in piles, on conveyors or into hoppers. A height difference of up to 11 m must be overcome at tide levels between -3 and -7 meters.
The machine is equipped with 20 m long equipment and kinematics engineered specifically for long reaches when offloading the ships.
The SENNEBOGEN 860 is powered by a 268 kW 6-cylinder Cummins diesel engine.
The materials handled range from sensitive types of grain or fertilizer to pea gravel, sand and crushed stone or waste glass. The operator has a choice of two 2-shell grapples with 3 m³ or 4.5 m³ and one 3.5-t multi-shell grapple with a capacity of 2 m³. Using these, maximum hourly throughputs of up to 300 t of scrap, 600 t of pea gravel or 400 t of glass can be moved.
At the same time, the model 860 is compact in size and offers convincing maneuvering characteristics. This was an important purchasing criterion in addition to achieving maximum possible capacity. The heavy wide-track design of the mobile undercarriage ensures stability.
The Maxcab Industry cab, which can be hydraulically elevated by 2.7 m, offers the operator an ideal overview. Thanks to the straight, uninterrupted windshield and the floor window of armored glass, the operator is ensured optimal visibility of the work area below and ahead. Additional assistance is provided by 2 cameras and 8 LED work lights that permit operation at night and in the fog.
Operator Martin Will praises the power and stability of the machine as well as the joystick control, which in addition to intuitive operation ensures optimal visibility from the cab.
