SENNEBOGEN has expanded its tree maintenance product portfolio with the launch of the new 728 E-series.

An addition to the line-up which includes the 718 E and 738 E tree-care handlers, the 728 E has a reach of up to 21 m, making it suitable for a range of challenging wood management tasks, particularly maintaining trees along roads and paths.

The 728 E has extremely long work equipment consisting of a 9.2 m compact boom and a 6 m telescopic stick, which can be quickly retracted and extended continuously by an additional 2.5 m and under load at the push of a button.

Thanks to the robust mobile undercarriage with a support width of around 4 m and pneumatic tyres, the machine is always safe and stable. 

Optimized for use along roads and forest paths, the 728 E can also be transported quickly and easily by low-loader or, with individual road approval, can be moved directly from site to site as a mobile machine. Thanks to the machine’s compact dimensions and fast operation, traffic disruption can be minimised.

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 impressive all-round visibility from the cab, which can be raised by 2.7 m and tilted by 30 degrees, 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.

Power is provided by a powerful Stage V diesel engine with 140 kW, 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.
