It was one of those cold December evenings that you spend on the couch with Pre-Christmas joy, cookies, tea and a warm blanket. But while some people are at home enjoying their well-earned evening off, the hard work of others begins: On the company premises of the , transport professionals load heavy equipment onto the low-loader, lash the chains and the approximately two-kilometer drive of the to the city center of Straubing begins: straight from the plant to the job.
Over the past weeks, the 45 t demolition machine from the SENNEBOGEN rental park created space for new office and residential units in the city center. Around the area of operation and within reach of the 830 Demolition, deconstruction professional Manfred Brandhuber arranges different rubble containers in order to conveniently fill them with the material without repositioning the machine: "For us, selective dismantling means removing material in a controlled and safe manner. Normally, we rely on earthmoving equipment, but it simply didn't offer us the necessary reach height for this job. Since SENNEBOGEN is located virtually around the corner, the 830 Demolition was available very quickly and we were able to expand our fleet easily with the rental offer."
Demolition grab, shears, bucket, hammer: thanks to the powerful hydraulics of the , the operation of different attachments requiring high pressures is possible. With the quick coupler on the stick, the 830 Demolition also adjusts to a new task in no time. It is the central player on the Straubing construction site and scores with its precision, its user-friendly joystick controls and the design focused on the needs of the operator: "The elevating and tilting cab is really a practical feature for leaning back in the seat close to the work area when removing the material. That' s good for my neck, because I can work in a natural posture and at the same time enjoy a clear view of my attachment," Brandhuber comments on his experience with the machine.
The 4.5 m wide, telescopic undercarriage in particular is responsible for the stability of the demolition machine. It ensures that the compact 45-ton machine remains stable at all times, even when the upper carriage is rotated quickly and heavy loads are in the grab. Brandhuber himself demonstrates on site what the 830 E is capable of: "In our operation today, the roof of the building is being removed. We first grab the chimney at a height of 15 m, move it to the ground in one piece, disassemble all other components of the roof there and immediately load bricks, metals or wood into the various containers for subsequent recycling."
Both the stability and the ability to work in 360° mode are crucial for Brandhuber, the demolition contractor, because the endless upper carriage rotation eliminates all time-consuming maneuvers for repositioning the machine. In a worst case scenario, the ground would have to be specially prepared and stabilized at the machine's new location, which would take up further valuable time. So the better the construction steps are planned in advance, coupled with well thought-out positioning of the demolition machine on site, the more time and money can be saved.
Brandhuber adds that it is strategically valuable that he has rented the SENNEBOGEN 830 E directly from the manufacturer and works in the immediate vicinity of the plant: "Fast support is important to me, as I depend on the functionality of the equipment on the construction site. That's why I really appreciate the personal contact with SENNEBOGEN and the resulting short lines of communication."
