The machine supplies a large set of scrap shears in the Paris suburb of La Courneuve with a throughput of several hundred tons of scrap each day. The advantage of the electric motor is clear. With the same material handling performance as the conventional diesel machine, the 850 Electro works with significantly reduced operating costs and low emission values. Particularly as the machine is working close to residential areas in Paris, the environmentally-friendly properties and low noise levels are particularly important for the operator.
The compact dimensions and good overview were also essential criteria for the SENNEBOGEN 850. On the scrapyard with limited space, it is important to keep an eye on all work activities at all times. The driver has an optimal overview from 12 meters above ground. The machine lifts the driver to this height in the cab with additional cab elevation specially developed for GDE.

Customers value SENNEBOGEN's flexibility and wealth of ideas when implementing special requests. In addition to the enormous 21-meter range of the machine, it also impresses with the significant reduction in operating costs of over 50% compared with the same machine with diesel motor. The electric motor enables the 850-D to be operated around the clock without stopping to refuel and also means that the key components in the machine have a significantly longer service life due to the extremely smooth running characteristics. The drivers and managers at GDE-Groupe Ecore are extremely satisfied with their first electric material handling machine. Follow-up orders have already been placed for identical SENNEBOGEN machines at other sites.

"The trend for the future is clearly moving towards electric motors" states Ralf Haibach, COO of GDE in discussion with SENNEBOGEN.
