New Sennebogen 728 E Tree Care Handler is Made for the Extreme
Published: 21/12, 2021
If you talk to professionals in the field of tree maintenance or problem tree felling, one thing quickly becomes clear--safety and precision are the key criteria. When the manual use of the chainsaw reaches its limits, tree care handler come into play.
The new Sennebogen 728 E has extremely long work equipment consisting of a 30-ft (9.2m) compact boom and a 20-ft (6m) telescopic stick, which can be quickly retracted and extended continuously by an additional 8 ft (2.5m) and under load at the push of a button. Complete with equipment, the machine easily achieves a working range of up to 69 ft (21m). Thanks to the robust mobile undercarriage with a support width of around 4 m and pneumatic tires, the machine is always safe and stable.
Optimized for use along roads and forest paths, the 728 E with a transport dimension of 10 ft (3m) can also be transported quickly and easily by low-loader or, with individual road approval, can easily be moved directly from site to site as a mobile machine. Trees and shrubs along traffic routes can be removed safely and precisely with minimal manpower. Thanks to the machine’s compact dimensions and fast operation, traffic disruptions can be minimized.
When designing the tree care handler, special attention was paid to safety and operator comfort in daily operation. In the comfortable Maxcab, in addition to the outstanding all-round visibility from the cab, the operator can also look forward to particularly ergonomic controls and a comfort seat.
Protected by roof and front grilles as well as windscreens and side windows made of bulletproof glass, the machine can be configured according to customer requirements. The spacious cab itself offers a panoramic view over the entire working area, while cameras provide additional support.
The necessary power is provided by a powerful 188-hp (140 kW) Stage V diesel engine, which reliably drives the two hydraulic circuits. Like all Sennebogen tree care handlers, the 728 E comes with a separate, generously dimensioned auxiliary hydraulic system for independent operation of the attachments as standard. Depending on the intended use, the machine can be operated with a grapple saw, mulcher, cutting unit, and more.
Thanks to the long range, powerful hydraulics for a wide range of attachments and the mobile undercarriage, the 728 E is unbeatably fast in landscape maintenance and fuel timber harvesting, with a constant focus on “safety first.”
