The Sennebogen 830E Demolition machine is optimised for demolition activities.  It has a typical operating weight of around 45 tonnes.


The box is Sennebogen-branded and is in a high quality presentation style. It includes some information about the real machine.  Inside the model is contained within black foam rubber. 

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

An instruction sheet describes the assembly of the model.


The underside of the undercarriage is fairly simple and the crawler tracks are metal.  The track frames have plastic steps attached.  There are no working rollers.

The cab is a Sennebogen Maxcab design, and it has metal grab rails although the mirror is not silvered.  Plastic protection guards are fitted to the front and top. 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.  Outside, the metal walkway has a textured surface.

The body casting is enhanced by the graphics which include small warning signs and the Sennebogen name is embossed in the counterweight casting.  At the front is a metal platform 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 to the boom where they connect to plastic pipes,  Hydraulic lines run  across and down the stick to the crusher.  

The crusher is a mainly metal part and hydraulic hoses from the stick clip on to it.

A metal boom stand is also included.


The tracks roll by hand although they were a little sticky on the review model.  They are mounted on extendible track frames, so transport and working poses are possible.

The cab elevates smoothly and stays horizontal throughout.  It also tilts and holds a pose when elevated, although not when lowered.

The model rotates well.

The movement of the boom and stick is very good and the cylinders have enough stiffness to hold any pose. The stability of the model is very good.

The demolition crusher rotates and it opens and closes and itt is detachable.

The handrails can be removed and the model adopts a realistic transport pose.  The boom can be detached, and the model also features a working counterweight attachment mechanism which is an excellent addition.


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

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


It is reasonable value.


It is good to see another demolition model and this Conrad model features some really nice functionality and flexibility. 


This model first appeared in October 2023.
