On the road.

The Sennebogen 830E is a machine designed for material handling applications.  It has a typical operating weight of around 39 tonnes.

The modelled version is fitted with an orange peel grab. 


The model box is Sennebogen-branded and it includes some information about the real machine.  Inside the model is contained within cardboard-backed foam rubber. 

There were no missing parts or defects on the review model.

The assembly required is to fit a mirror, the handrails and the grab.


The underside of the machine is simple with the axles modelled in detail.  The double plastic wheels are detailed and the tyres have a good tread pattern. 

The undercarriage is metal with plastic stabiliser beams and pads at each end,and the colour match to the metal parts is very good.  There are textured metal ladders and stepping points.

The cab is the latest Sennebogen Maxcab design, and it has metal grab rails although the mirror is not silvered.  Inside the detailing is good with distinct controls.  The elevating mechanism is connected by small brass rivets and the cable band is nice soft material. 

The body casting is enhanced by the graphics which include small warning signs and the Sennebogen name is embossed in the counterweight casting.  Also good is the rear camera and the exhaust pipe.  At the front is a metal ladder leading to the roof where there is texturing and painted detail.  Metal handrails surround the top of the engine compartment.

There are soft hoses running up the boom, across the stick, and to the grab.   The connection rivets used are small, and there are two light blocks on the stick.

The sorting grab is plastic, presumably to keep the weight down, and is nicely formed.  Hydraulic hoses from the stick clip on to it.


It rolls well on its wheels.  One axle steers to a good angle, and it also oscillates for use on uneven terrain.

The stabilisers can be lowered and the pads pivot. 

The cab elevates smoothly and stays horizontal throughout.

The model rotates well.

The movement of the boom and stick is very good and the cylinders have enough stiffness to hold any pose. At maximum reach the model remains stable.

The sorting grab rotates and it opens and closes with the interlocking shells moving together.  It is detachable.

The handrails can be removed and the model adopts a realistic transport pose with the exception of the platform outside the cab which would have been better if it was removable. 


This a good quality model by Conrad with plastic used appropriately.

The paintwork is very good with nice sharp detailed graphics throughout.


It is good value.


This is another solid Sennebogen model by Conrad.  It has a good balance between detailing and functionality. 


This model first appeared in the Bauma exhibition in April 2019.
