The founding of sand and gravel excavating company “Lenz & Co” in 1906 laid the cornerstone for today’s LZR – Lenz Ziegler Reifenscheid GmbH in Kitzingen/Bavaria, supplying also ready-mixed concrete. Sand and gravel extraction in the Main valley has always been a mainstay of LZR GmbH. Every day, approx. 800 tons arrive at the gravel plant in Kitzingen via the Main River. Operator Uwe Marx is in charge of unloading the material and supplying the processing facilities. Since the end of 2017, he can rely on his new SENNEBOGEN 835 E material handler to do the job. Equipped for a reach of 18 m and with a 2000-l double-shell grab, Marx dredges the raw gravel from the hulls or directly feeds the processing units of the concrete mixing plant. For an optimal view of the work area and all the way down into the hulls, the 835 E was specified with an elevating and extendable cab.
By customer request, the SENNEBOGEN 835 E was painted in the LZR company colors to perfectly match its yellow-blue environment. The machine is equipped with a 224-kW diesel engine complying with state-of-the-art tier 4f emission control requirements. Its all-wheel travel drive allows it to be used flexibly all across the company premises.
