Sennebogen reveals 100 tonne crawler crane
By Alex Dahm27 January 2022
A 100 tonne capacity telescopic boom crawler crane has been launched by Sennebogen in Germany.
The Telecrane 6103 E offers a maximum reach of 62 metres and sits between the 70 tonne capacity model 673 E and the 120 tonne capacity 6113 E. It helps complete the line up which is now eight models from 16 to 130 tonnes capacity.
The five section pinned boom is 46.8 metres long and can be extended with a fly jib and extension section. Maximum working height is 50 metres.
The 6103 E is designed for demanding pick and carry operations, Sennebogen said, for example, in precast concrete and component assembly. Power is from a 186 kW diesel engine to exhaust emission standard EU Stage V. The main and auxiliary winches have a 100 kN line pull and offer a maximum hoisting speed of 125 metres per minute.
Requirements of special civil engineering and hydraulic engineering are catered for with a range of functions, for example, working range limitation, a cold weather package and being able to use water-based bio-oil in the hydraulic system instead of mineral oil.
Maximum track width from the telescopic undercarriage is 4.2 metres. Pick and carry duty is 100 per cent of the chart. Operation can continue with the crane up to 4 degrees out of level.
Its Maxcab operator cabin can be tilted by up to 20 degrees to improve the driver’s view of a load. An option is the hydraulic cabin where the operator’s eye level can be raised to 5.6 metres above the ground. Radio remote control from outside the cabin is another option.
Easier to transport
For transport the crane can be moved in one piece, other than removing the rear ballast blocks to bring the weight down to 61 tonnes and a width of 3.48 metres. The crane upper weighs less than 40 tonnes and can go on a low bed trailer. Assembling the crane, including the crawler track frames, can be done by the crane itself without an assist crane.
Among other materials handling equipment and cranes, Sennebogen has been building telescopic boom crawler cranes since 1992. The launch of this latest 100 tonner coincides with the 30 year anniversary of selling this crane type all around the world.
