Sennebogen's 6130 HD duty cycle crawler crane has received praise for its mining work in central Germany
The machine, which comes with drag shovel and a 5.6m³ dragline, has been extracting 2,500m³ of gravel/day. The crawler crane's 29.9m boom is used to pour material over a large heap before it is sieved after a short drying period and transported on with a HGV. The Sennebogen
6130 is being used by construction company Himmel und Papesch
on behalf of K&B Kies und Beton
. Himmel und Papesch says the machine was chosen due to its ability to transport large quantities of mined material. They say its driver has also praised the crawler crane's outstanding stability, smooth running and in-cab comfort. The robust Sennebogen HD crawler cranes have been used in a wide range of different fields all over the world for nearly 60 years. The HD product range includes nine models with loads of 20-200tonnes and motor performance of 119-570kW.
