Electric Drive Electric traction drive for Pick & Carry

Electric Drive

SENNEBOGEN Electric Drive is an electric traction drive for material handlers. It is used especially for machines that are designed for continuous operation - such as machines in sawmills, timber handling, log yards, etc.

  • The technology can save operating costs and reduce energy consumption by up to 30%.
  • In addition, the machine is more dynamic and quieter.

What is behind the “Electric Drive” concept?

The Electric Drive is an innovation for mobile material handlers. For the first time, SENNEBOGEN has installed two electric drive engines in mobile, self-powered applications without the need for a power supply cable. The energy for the electric travel drive is provided by a generator run by the diesel engine.

The degree of efficiency in the service chain from the diesel engine to the electric travel engines is increased by up to 90 %.

When does the Electric Drive kick in?

The new Electric Drive is mainly used in day-to-day operations when accelerating, braking and driving under load. This is where the available energy can best be used. This is especially the case when handling timber, which is why SENNEBOGEN chose the powerful 735 E Pick & Carry material handler to be the first machine to be fitted with the Electric Drive.

How does the Electric Drive work?

The new system kicks in where we found the largest amount of unused energy. Starting-up and braking are controlled by an efficient electric drive and any surplus braking energy is recovered giving a higher level of efficiency that with a traditional hydrostatic diesel drive.

How much energy can I save with Electric Drive?

Thanks to the electric drive in the undercarriage and an intelligent energy management system, energy consumption can be reduced by up to 30 %.

What is the technology behind the Electric Drive?

SENNEBOGEN has developed this new travel drive in close collaboration with long-term partner Bosch Rexroth. The components are based on Bosch Rexroth drive components and were developed together to create a marketable product.
