Dry Bulk,

As part of the next model of the Star Lifter series, SENNEBOGEN has also added the 5500 crawler crane to the new engine generation of the E-Series for the bauma trade fair. The new model boasts a 180 t lifting capacity and has numerous equipment variants, a modern Tier 4f engine and the proven Star Lifter undercarriage.

As a crawler crane for structural engineering and rental, the SENNEBOGEN 5500 has been in applications around the globe for many years, used in a variety of tasks, from lifting work to assembling large building elements, or for logistics tasks.

SENNEBOGEN has revised its 180 t crawler crane, the SENNEBOGEN 5500, from the ground up and optimised it to meet Tier 4f emission standards.

The new 5500 crawler crane comes with a powerful 261 kW diesel engine that reliably drives the two 160 kN winches. Thanks to its robust Star Lifter crawler undercarriage, the machine is not only stable, it can even be conveniently driven under load.

A modular boom design permits numerous equipment variants with lengths up to 104 m including luffing jib. The crawler tracks can be easily removed for transport, after which the base machine, at just 3.0 m wide, can be easily transported. All further components are designed so that they can be stowed in containers or tarpaulin-covered trucks in a space-saving way.

Thanks to the innovative SENNEBOGEN self-assembly system, the crawler crane is assembled in a few steps. As a crawler crane of the E-series, the 5500 with Green Efficiency Technology not only satisfies the Tier 3b/4f requirements but also has high energy efficiency thanks to EcoMode, temperature-controlled fan drives, and a SENCON control and diagnostics system.

The modern Maxcab comfort cab provides a comfortable operating environment and an optimal overview. The cab can also be tilted by 20° and elevated up to 2.7 m – an added bonus in ergonomics and work safety. In order to make daily maintenance as easy as possible, all service and maintenance points are positioned so that they are easily and safely accessible.
