MULTIFUNCTIONAL MATERIAL HANDLER: FOR ANY JOB WITH EITHER SCRAP METAL SHEARS OR MULTI-SHELL GRAB
With his SENNEBOGEN 825, operator Martin Tausch can make a quick choice between the multi-shell grab or the scrap metal shears at any time. The material handler is equipped with a quick-action coupler that makes it a highly flexible and multifunctional tool. It is used to handle scrap at the yard of customer Schenker in Hohenkammer.
As a certified disposal specialist, Schenker Industrie- und Sta¨dtereinigungs GmbH takes care of the disposal and recycling of waste and all kinds of raw materials.
The family-owned company is located in Southern Bavaria. It has been a reliable business partner for 40 years, operating its own recycling facilities and
value-added chains. Every month around 15,000 tonnes of material are handled and recycled at the Hohenkammer site, including approximately 5,000 tonnes of scrap metal, paper, waste wood, plastics and other recycling materials. In total, four SENNEBOGEN material handlers are used for material sorting, yard logistics and, in particular, loading the processing plants. The latest piece of machinery is a SENNEBOGEN 825, which, thanks to its special handling equipment, can be used with a multi-shell grab and 3-tonne scrap metal shears as well.
SWAPPING ATTACHMENTS FROM THE CAB – WITHOUT EFFORT
The SENNEBOGEN 825 was delivered by sales and service partner Fischer & Schweiger at the end of 2016. It is equipped with a 6.8m boom and a 3.2m grab handle with quick-action coupler to provide a reach of 10m. The different attachments can be exchanged easily from the cab. Schenker uses both an original
SENNEBOGEN multi-shell grab with a
2.1m short handle for material handling and
the existing three-tonne Zato shears.
To managing director Thomas Schenker,
the advantages of this custom solution are
obvious: “Depending on requirements, we
can simply switch between the two
attachments. The shears allow us to trim
large steel beams and pipes for subsequent
processing right after delivery. The material
handler with the grab can be used for loading and sorting tasks around the entire
yard wherever needed. With this set-up,
we can reliably perform two tasks with just
FLEXIBLE USE ON COMPANY PREMISES –
The actual material handler is a
SENNEBOGEN 825 with all-wheel-drive
undercarriage, a 129kW diesel engine and
an elevating cab with a standard lift of 2.7m.
At the Hohenkammer site, work has to be done at frequently changing
locations, so any solution has to
be ultimately flexible. For
example, the SENNEBOGEN
825 fitted with shears is used
for preparatory work at the
large 2000-HP shredder. On
other occasions, the machine is
used on short call to feed the
processing plant or sort
material using the multi-shell
grab. Quickly responding to
demand is no problem because
attachments can be swapped in
only a few minutes.
“We were looking for a truly
multifunctional machine, and found it in the
SENNEBOGEN 825”, says a delighted
Thomas Schenker. Once again, SENNE-
BOGEN has been able to impress with a
straightforward solution. Schenker has
been highly satisfied with the reliable
SENNEBOGEN machines for many years.
“Up to now, we have been more than
satisfied. The contact is very personal, and
the service provided by sales and service
partner Fischer & Schweiger is excellent.”
