Multitasking Sennebogen material handler is right toolkit for urban dismantling projects
After ten years of seeing the former Wangler furniture store stand vacant, local residents in Regensburg, Germany were pleased to see a crew from Metz GmbH arrive to tear down the building. At the center of the jobsite is a SENNEBOGEN 830 R-HDD E Series material handler fitted with a variety of attachments to bring down and extract the material, sort it and load it for on-site crushing.
Valued partner on the building site
The 830 R-HDD E is a 90,000 lbs. (40,800 kg) SENNEBOGEN machine on a crawler undercarriage that's specially equipped for the demanding conditions of demolition work. Easy to transport on a lowboy trailer, short set-up time and flexible range of attachments are just some of the reasons why the contractor decided to purchase the SENNEBOGEN's 830 R-HDD machine.
Metz was founded in 2007 and specializes in full-service dismantling projects - from the controlled demolition of the structure, to crushing and sorting, right through to the removal of material, all carried out by a 25-person expert demolition crew. Clearly, this one-stop approach requires machines that are as flexible as possible and Metz found them through working with SENNEBOGEN and their local SENNEBOGEN dealer.
Stability and extensive reach
With a reach of 62 ft. (19 m) and a full width of 15 ft. (4.5 m), the 830's demolition ability is ideally suited to downtown demolition. "Despite its compact footprint, the machine is very stable. This is especially evident when we are working with large loads or reaching up high", says operator Andreas Feigl.
Another plus, according to Feigl, is that the machine has a 360° working radius with equal load capacity in all directions. This provides an ideal view of the entire work area from the cab. The elevating Maxcab with a 30° tilt means that the operator can work comfortably at an eye-level height of 20 ft. (6 m). From the ergonomic comfort seat, he can control the shears, bucket or demolition grab with a direct view of the attachment, even when reaching the tallest part of the building.
Always an eye on costs
Operating with reduced emissions is an important responsibility. It's not just being kind to the environment but it's also important to be easy on the wallet. "The SENNEBOGEN 830 comes out really well in the time-money-precision equation!", says Christian Metz, founder and managing director of the demolition company. "The low fuel consumption of its Tier 4F diesel engine and the reduced downtime with fewer refueling stops has completely won us over!".
