German crane manufacturer Sennebogen is showing an updated version of its 673E telescopic boom crawler crane at Intermat. Work has been done on the upper and the Max Cab is 70 mm longer than the previous one. It has a climate-controlled seat and the joysticks have been designed in-house.
According to Sennebogen, the new 673E has more space between the upper and lower to allow better access for maintenance. The metal walkways are now designed to stay on the crane during transport which helps with set up and dismantling time. Time is also saved when mounting the fly jib as it is now a swing away type. Power is from a Cummins Stage V diesel engine.
The first unit is the one on display. It will be in the colours of French rental company Enco and will be delivered there after the show.
Also new from Sennebogen is the 70 tonne capacity 670 duty cycle lattice boom crawler. It fits in the range between the 655 and the 690. Typical application for this heavy duty model are dragline, grab and clamshell for earth removal.
Sennebogen is also showing its 6113E – a wheeled version of the usual model with crawler tracks. On wheels it also has pick and carry duties. It is often fitted with an elevating cabin (to a height of 6 m) to give the operator a better view of the operating environment. Maximum capacity is 27 tonnes. At the moment power is from a diesel engine but within the next two or three years Sennebogen said it will have prototypes of battery powered machines.
