Sennebogen - not exactly a household name

Parent company Sennebogen Maschinenfabrik GmbH has been in business since 1952, and is well established world wide. Its North American operation apparently started in 2000, so that may explain why the name was new to me when I saw this 830M model tonight. It had arrived in Halifax by ship and was outbound by train. Another unit may also have left on last night's train too.

Specializing in hydraulic material handlers, excavators and cranes, Sennebogen appears to have a niche in  scrap handling. See:

The unit I saw is the rubber tired model (they also have crawlers) and its boom can be fitted with grab or magnet. unfortunately I was on the "off side", so the elevating control cab arrangement was not visible.
