SENNEBOGEN 6130 HD transports tons of gravel

Heavy mining work is underway at the lake Alperstedter See close to Erfurt – with a SENNEBOGEN 6130 HD duty cycle crawler crane with drag shovel (Fig.). Equipped with a 5.6 m³ dragline, the machine extract 2500 m³ of gravel each day to depths of up to 5 m. The 29.9 m 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 majority goes straight to the ICE Trasse Berlin-Nürnberg construction site. The pouring work with the SENNEBOGEN 6130 is carried out by construction company Himmel und Papesch on behalf of K+B Kies und Beton GmbH.
