SENNEBOGEN Up-Sizes Its Tree Care Line
Recognized for its remarkable 718 M purpose-built tree care handler, SENNEBOGEN now introduces the 738 M, a machine sized to reach further and to handle larger trees.
Weighing in over 43,500 kg, the new SENNEBOGEN 738 M is twice the size of the 718 and extends its reach to 23 m vs the 13 m range of the 718. Still, according to operator Rob Frost, founder of KutTech, LLC, a SENNEBOGEN service provider based in New England.
“The 738 gives you the same cycle times, the same fluidity as the 718. It’s quick and smooth. You can move at the same pace as the 718, while you’re moving much bigger wood,” he said.
While it allows crews in urban areas to take on more and larger projects, the 738 is also sized right for heavier forested areas. Intended specifically for arborists, rather than logging production, the 738 is also recommended for deeper off-road projects such as right-of-way maintenance for utility companies or for DOT throughways and rail lines.
Mr. Frost estimates that the 738 works fast enough to cut in the range of 100 to 150 trees per day, with no additional crew onsite. With its long reach, the machine can clear large swaths from one stance then, running on rubber tires at up to 24 km/h, it can easily move up the road to clear the next spot.
Developed on the same platform as SENNEBOGEN’s trailer-pulling 830 M-T log handler, the 738 M offers powerful off-road mobility driven by with transmission on both axles. The machine is powered by a 225 hp (168 kW) Cummins 6.7 l Tier 4 final engine. The operator gets a clear view of the worksite and into the cutting zone from the elevating and tilting Maxcab.
The 738 shows off even greater single-handed versatility with its auxiliary attachment pump, provided to power heavy hydraulic attachments such as a mower and mulcher. The total package offers exceptional capacity for maintaining embankments, with the ability to stand back safely while it works down a 7.6 m slope.
