Having previously purchased a Sennebogen 305 Multihandler from Hassells for their operation in Stone, Staffordshire the decision to add another two versatile and robust machines endorsed Sennebogen as supplier of choice for its requirements.
Weighing in at 11 tonnes the Sennebogen is of strong build quality and offers increased durability and component life expectancy. Operating on foam filled tyres the Sennebogen 305 features a two section telescopic boom as standard equipment and is hydraulically extendable from 4.1 to 6.6 metres.
Featuring a hydraulic quick change device operated from the driver's cabin a 2.5 cubic metre the two machines are fitted with a hook lift mechanism enabling easy and efficient handling of the waste bins at both sites. Both machines have also been ‘beefed up' by Hassells and have the option of a compaction framework attachment to allow compaction of the waste in the bins. Hassells also supplied a set of fork lifts with each machine which has added a third option to the machine handling for Staffordshire CC.
The Sennebogen 305 also features a hydraulically elevated cabin and 3 position steering which provides the SCC operators with improved vision, exceptional maneuverability and excellent all round vision when loading high sided vehicles or containers.
Excellent service accessibility and extended maintenance intervals also offer reduced maintenance costs on the 305 machines.
Fred Marsden - SCC Waste Facilities Manager, commented, "The versatility of these machines allows them to carry out many different tasks around the site one of which is the manoeuvring of the containers thereby reducing the demand on other service vehicles. It is also anticipated that the Sennobogen machines will assist in the operation of the new small trade waste schemes that are due to be opened at the Stafford and Cannock sites."
