Proven Performer Makes Its Debut
When the use of chainsaws in the hands of a skilled arborist cannot do the job of maintaining roadways and powerline right-of-ways, urban foresters are now turning to tree care handlers from SENNEBOGEN. The 728 M is the latest member of the growing family of tree care handlers that can safely and efficiently grab, cut and carefully place trees and shrubs. Although launched a few months ago, the 728 M, a 34,000 kg machine has already proven itself to arborists.
The 728 M (rubber tired) and 728 R-HD (tracked) fill in between the 718 and the 738 which have already become very popular in the U.S.
With a reach up to 19.8 m which is only 3 m less than the 738 but 6.7 m more than the 718, it covers a lot of ground. This translates into a machine that can still reach trees that are quite far away which is especially crucial in challenging environments like clearing slopes while being able to stay safely on the ground.
With a lifting capacity of 1,680 kg at its maximum reach, it has the power and the capability to cut and stack large limbs and whole trees in a single, efficient step while essentially eliminating any risk to ground crews.
Driven by a perfectly matched Cummins 17 hp Tier 4f engine, the hydraulic system has all the power required to run a wide selection of heavy-duty attachments including grapple saws and mowers. Like the smaller 718, the machine is easy to transport on public roadways without special permits and once on the ground, the 728 M is street legal and can move into position and between jobs at 20 km/h.
The elevating, safety enclosed, climate controlled Maxcab, with its protective guarding on the roof and windshield and bullet-proof glass combined with its ability to tilt 30°, gives the operator a wide angled view of the worksite. With its reach, it can be safely used to avoid high-risk manual work-at-height situations.
