French heavy haulage company Transconvoi has taken delivery of a 70 tonne Sennebogen 673 E telescopic crawler crane to assist with loading and unloading materials and machinery.
The 673 E features a four section, 36 metre main boom plus an eight to 15 metre bi-fold swingaway extension which can offset by up to 40 degrees. Features include a Stage V engine, a tilting cab, extendable tracks as well as pick & carry capabilities. It has also been supplied with an additional winch and a five tonne auxiliary jib.
As well as assisting with its operations, the crane will be used within the mining, quarry and construction industries. Its first job was to unload and place large concrete blocks on a mining site in the region of Bourgogne Franche-Comté.
Managing director David Bredillet, said: “The 673 E is perfectly designed for the services I would like to offer my regular customers from now on. Thanks to its modularity and short setup time, the 673 E telescopic crawler crane is easy to transport and immediately available upon arrival at the construction site. It is also capable of moving with heavy, indivisible loads on the hook – exactly what my customers are looking for. With this crane’s exceptional ability to master even the most difficult terrain, I want to offer an alternative to the large All Terrain and Rough Terrain cranes, because for these machines, access to the sites, which in my case are usually located on difficult and spatially restricted terrain, is not as easy as for the telescopic crawler crane.”
