SENNEBOGEN 8100 EQ balance material handler revolutionizes scrap handling

Compellingly different

Zlompol Sp.J., based in Tarczyn in Poland, has been handling scrap for 25 years. The company started off using classic earthwork diggers, moved on to material handlers, and is now using a modern SENNEBOGEN 8100 EQ balance material handler. The balanced machine with a reach of 27 m is not only revolutionizing the company's work processes, but is also saving it energy – the perfect gift for Zlompol's 25th birthday.

Robert Cimoszynski and Janusz Majewski, the two managing directors who run the family company, are currently experiencing an increase in visitor numbers to their 5.0 hectare scrapyard in Tarczyn. And they are not coming because of the yard's beautiful location between lakes and orchards, around 25 km from the Polish capital of Warsaw, but because they want to see the new green SENNEBOGEN 8100 EQ balance material handler which has been the centerpiece of the yard since July 2017.


"Our new machine can be seen from quite some distance away. People keep coming to admire it. Many people are even making special trips to bring scrap so they can see the new material handler, and no wonder – it's extremely efficient and the first of its kind in Poland", explains Zlompol managing director Robert Cimoszynski.


Zlompol is celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2017. The Fortschritt excavator from the 1980s, which is still on display at the scrapyard, shows how material was handled when the company first started. Today, Zlompol handles around 6 000 t scrap every month on site. The material comes from within a radius of around 50 km and is brought in by the company's own trucks or delivered by customers. When it came to successively replacing the existing material handlers, salesman Andrzej Tokarczyk from SENNEBOGEN dealer Komatsu Poland was able to win over Zlompol with a new approach.


Balance principle and electric motor enable savings of up to 75 %


As a material handler with flexible counterbalancing – referred to as the equilibrium concept – the new SENNEBOGEN 8100 EQ with a range of 27 m comfortably covers an area of just under 2 500 m². The special advantage here is that, thanks to the constant balancing of the EQ principle, a relatively small motor is sufficient to power the machine. The machine used at Zlompol is fitted with a 110 kW electric motor. According to Tokarczyk, a comparable hydraulic material handler would have needed at least a 200 kW motor to provide comparable power levels and cover the operating area. The combination of the balance principle and the electric drive enables the company to save up to 75 % of the operating costs.


"Further advantages of the electric machine include lower service and energy costs, increased service life of the components, no fuel stops, and quiet, emission-free operation – which is particularly appreciated by our neighbors," adds managing director Janusz Majewski. For the driver who feeds the 1250 PS Lindemann shredder with the 8100 EQ, one key thing has changed the view. With an eye height of 10.5 m, he not only has an unobstructed view of the shredder feed area, but can also keep an eye on the entire yard and all the processes going on around him. Managing director Cimoszynski also likes to swap his office chair for the driver seat in the comfortable Maxcab industrial cab from time to time for the same reason. For him, one thing is clear: "By purchasing the new SENNEBOGEN 8100, we have invested in the future. At the same time, we have found a reliable partner in Komatsu Poland."
