German demolition project success for Sennebogen
Metz GmbH use 830 R-HDD E material handler to demolish eyesore derelict building
AFTER 10 years of seeing the former Wangler furniture store stand vacant, local residents in Regensburg, Germany, were pleased to see demolition contractors Metz GmbH arrive to tear down the building.
At the centre of the jobsite is a Sennebogen 830 R-HDD E Series material handler, which has been fitted with a variety of attachments to bring down the existing structure, extracting the building material and then sorting and loading it for on-site crushing.
The Sennebogen 830 R-HDD E is a 40,800kg demolition handler on a crawler undercarriage that is 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 (eg demolition grab, bucket, shears etc.) were some of the key reasons why the contractor decided to purchase the 830 R-HDD E machine.
With a reach of 62ft (19m) and a full width of 15ft (4.5m), the material handler is suitable for use on urban demolition projects. ‘Despite its compact footprint, the machine is very stable,’ said Metz operator Andreas Feigl. ‘This is especially evident when we are working with large loads or reaching up high.’
Another key advantage, according to Mr Feigl, is that the machine has a 360-degree 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-degree tilt means that the operator can work comfortably at an eye-level height of 20ft (6m). From the ergonomic comfort seat, the driver can control the shears, bucket or demolition grab with a direct view of the attachment, even when reaching the tallest part of the building.
The Sennebogen 830 R-HDD E material handler has been designed with the environment in mind, as operating with reduced emissions is an important responsibility for Metz. And thanks to the demolition handler’s Tier 4 Final diesel engine, the machine benefits from lower fuel consumption and reduced downtime with fewer refuelling stops.
