Maxcab from SENNEBOGEN

New Maxcab from SENNEBOGEN takes comfort to the next level

With the new Maxcab, one of the best cabs around is about to get even better. More room, more comfort, a better view and even quieter inside than before – these are the key benefits that all drivers of SENNEBOGEN machines will now be able to enjoy. The machine manufacturer from Straubing will be presenting its new comfort cab to a large audience on the occasion of a major in-house exhibition and the company's 65th anniversary.

 SENNEBOGEN launched the first generation of the Maxcab in 2006, and the cab went on to set a new benchmark for material handlers, duty cycle cranes and other cranes for many years. With the innovations introduced at the time, the drivers of SENNEBOGEN machines experienced a huge improvement in comfort, ergonomics and safety. The sliding door, which was introduced over 10 years ago and makes getting into and out of the cab much easier, is particularly worthy of note.

More room

The new version of the Maxcab is 70 mm longer, and the driver will notice the extra space immediately. This not only makes the driver feel less cramped, but also provides extra space for an electric cooler and a storage area for documents and folders behind the driver seat. The flexibly adjustable and air-conditioned driver seat, which was previously presented at bauma 2016, and the consoles and ergonomic joysticks that move with the seat create the perfect environment in the cab for long periods of fatigue-free work. The workstation can be individually adjusted to the size and weight of every driver, ensuring the best possible working posture.

 Ideal view and optimized ergonomics

The sliding door continues to provide the same convenient, safe access to the cab. In fact, the opening width of the door has been enlarged compared to the previous model. The cab windshield has been pulled down to the base plate, optimizing the view to the front in material handlers in particular. Together with the large side window panels, this provides a panoramic view over the entire work environment. The new floor mat is flush with the access opening, making the floor easy to clean. All of the operating elements are easy to understand and intuitive to operate. There are charging sockets for electrical and electronic devices on the right behind the driver seat to ensure that all necessary devices are always ready for use. Additional storage places in the interior keep things tidy and within reach inside the cab.

 Optimum climate – strong solutions down to the last detail

The air conditioning in the cab has been further improved by means of optimized air conduction with a total of 9 outlet nozzles. The SENNEBOGEN Maxcab remains unique thanks to its optimal distribution of cooling air throughout the interior – even at a high cooling output, the air is blown in at a pleasantly low speed via outlets distributed around the cab, even at roof height. Furthermore, the cab still features a side window panel which can be opened in the driver door and an adjustable windshield which now has an improved operating mechanism, both of which help to ensure a pleasant working environment. The window panels behind the B-column are tinted and reduce the amount of cooling power required for the cab.

New design – less noise

Designers were involved in the development of the new Maxcab right from the start. As a result, the cab boasts a smart design which meets all of the constructional specifications and implements them in a functional manner. This means that the design composition and features which aid recognition underline functional elements; for example, the green cover of the air filter with easy access for servicing. The developers of the new cab were also able to use sound-absorbing materials and structural solutions to significantly reduce the noise level in the cab once again.
SENNEBOGEN prioritized higher-quality solutions during the design and development process – a strategy which will be evident to every driver working in the cab.

 Important options to suit the application

The new Maxcab will be used in most material handlers, but also in duty cycle, telescopic and crawler cranes. The Maxcab is also able to cope with the varying  requirements of different drivers extremely well, as a wealth of different options enable machine operators to tailor the cab to their needs during the project planning stage. These options include a wide range of protective grating and glazing variants incl. armored glass, as well as roof windows with wipers and an integrated sunshield in the roof.

The diesel engine features an automatic idle reduction, shut down and performance optimisation aimed at reducing fuel consumption. Eco Mode intends to increase fuel savings by up to 20 per cent during operation. The operating comfort of the 818 E-series has been improved through a hydraulically elevated cabin, offering an operator eye level of approximately 5600mm. Meanwhile joystick steering control offers maximum visibility and a clutter-free cabin. The safety of the materials handler has been bolstered through a sliding door for cabin entry, an emergency cabin lowering function accessible at both ground level and inside the cabin and two 115° cameras to the right and rear of the machine. Maintenance and service has also been maximised through all daily service checks easily accessed from ground level on the machine, a straight forward and clearly labelled electrical system and a low percentage of proprietary parts.

Sennebogen National Business Development Manager Neil Adlam says the 818 E-series offers an uncompromised high performance in all critical areas of material handling excellence.

“The total Sennebogen package is supported locally by the dedicated team at Pacific Materials Handling, with national branches and local technicians to support any requirements.”


Equilibrium Handler

Rethink and save: equilibrium handler to serve as backbone of wood logistics at Borg Manufacturing

What can we do to increase our productivity while also saving on operating costs? This is the question many companies ask themselves. For John Borg, owner of Australia's Borg Manufacturing, the SENNEBOGEN was able to deliver a persuasive solution for wood handling with the 8130 equilibrium handler.

Borg Manufacturing operates a large MDF factory in Oberon, a small town in New South Wales, Australia, that is about 2.5 hours West of Sydney. Since its founding in 1991, the family-owned business has become Australia's leading manufacturer of kitchen cabinet doors and decorative MDF panels distributed through the brand Polytec. The wide range of MDF panels are manufactured primarily at the Oberon site. This is where the new SENNEBOGEN handling machine comes into play.

Optimized logistics processes – SENNEBOGEN crane at the core

The SENNEBOGEN 8130 is the heart of the reorganized lumberyard. Whereas previously the conveyor belts of the loading system would be laboriously served by multiple vehicles using a ramp, these logistics are now covered by one stationary crane. The raw material, which can be between four and five meters in length, is unloaded and sorted all around the stationary balance crane. With its reach of 23 meters, the 8130 can easily cover an operating area of around 1,600 square meters. The reorganization added logistical value and also enhanced occupational health and safety, since only one central machine now does all of the loading. The loading line can now be safely filled from above, and vehicle traffic has been reduced.

Saving costs – working effectively with a stationary electric machine

Operating and maintenance costs have also been reduced, reported Borg. "Where numerous vehicles were consuming a lot of expensive diesel before, the electric equilibrium handler now only accounts for a fraction of the costs." The excessive ground wear from the vehicles is also a thing of the past. These vehicles would not only damage the surface when retrieving wood at ground level and result in yearly repairs, they would also introduce foreign material to the loading lines. This is now completely avoided thanks to the elevated machine position and grabbing from above.

Australian sales and service partner Pacific Materials Handling delivered the 8130 in the middle of 2014. The machine is equipped with a 132-kW electric motor, a 23-meter attachment, and the Maxcab Industry cab. The crane is mounted above the loading line on a 5.5-meter tall pylon. The equilibrium principle keeps the machine balanced thanks to a coupled counterweight. Only two hydraulic cylinders are needed to move the entire equipment. The electric drive proves itself with its strong performance and low noise level. In total, the longer maintenance intervals, small number of moving parts and the electric drive save up to 75% on operating costs – an argument that has persuaded not only Borg.

Sennebogen 860M with Skylift cabin at C3 Limited New Zealand

Pacific Materials handling  have recently delivered 2 x special Sennebogen machines to C3 Limited in NZ.

 The 2 x Sennebogen 860M machines are complete with a Cummins 268kW diesel engine, 21m boom, 1.5m pylon, SMAG 2.5sqm log grab and a specially designed operators "skylift cabin" that allows the operator to enter the machine from ground level and then hydraulically elevate to an operating position of up to 10,000mm. The cabin also features a side platform with walkway for safe entry & exit to the cabin.


The machines weigh in at close to 90,000kgs with the log grab fitted but they are still able to travel at speeds of up to 14 km /hr and have a nominal lifting capacity of just on 9,000kgs at 15m forward reach x 15m high.


The benefits of the operator being able to enter at ground level are obvious but when coupled with the amount of reach, lift capacity and the clear vision and safety of sitting at 10m high when surrounded by logs and constant roadtruck and heavy equipment traffic in NZ's busiest ports make these machines a real game changer for log handler in port applications.
