Sennebogen 5500 HD debut in Bauma in Munich 2001, a 150-tonne crawler that was previously promoted as the Sennebogen 6150. It has been re-named as part of a new nomenclature across the product range. The 600 series designation is now for foundation and duty-cycle equipment and the 500 series is for lifting cranes, of which this model is the first.

The 5500 HD has been developed in conjunction with Mammoet Van Seumeren (in whose colours it is shown) to ensure it meets the needs of rental companies. By stowing boom elements inside one another, all parts can pack into standard 40ft containers, for example.
Sennebogen announced at Intermat in Paris last year (2000) that it had taken five orders from Mammoet Van Seumeren for what was then the 6150. This has now been increased to 10 units. The very first unit to be delivered, however, is going to another Dutch company, Hans Dekker.
The 5500 HD can be fitted with a main boom of up to 80.3m, and luffing jibs up to 53m. It features two 160kN winches and is powered by a 231kW Deutz engine.
