The Sennebogen rubber-tired 718 M is a 47,180-lb. (21,400 kg) purpose-built tree care machine equipped with a hydraulic tree saw and grapple attached to its 43-ft. (13 m) telescoping boom.
Around the Sennebogen 718 grapple saw attachment (L-R) are Greg Roberts of Sennebogen; Jeremy Lacey and Jason Sykes, both of L&L Tree Service in Jacksonville, N.C.; Terry Jones of Sun Machinery Company in Lexington, S.C.; and Jim Westlake of Sennebogen.
Sennebogen works with many different attachment manufacturers on installation procedures to make sure both companies products perform as expected.  Wade Myers of Wright Tree Service in Des Moines, Iowa, looks over the FAE UML/HY excavator mulcher.
Sam Caldwell (L) of Sun Machinery in Lexington, S.C., and Brian Ligon of Big Dog Tree Service in Augusta, Ga., look over the grapple attachment on the Sennebogen 718E.
The 718 is practical for municipal projects; roadside maintenance; commercial work; right-of-way clearing; utility line clearance; storm work; and streams; slopes and embankment maintenance; and other jobs that require the removal of more than trees.
On June 18, 2020, Sennebogen held a live demo day of its 718 tree handlers at the company’s Stanley, N.C., headquarters.

On June 18, 2020, Sennebogen held a live demo day of its 718 tree handlers at the company's Stanley, N.C., headquarters.

Greg Roberts, Sennebogen tree care manager, said that his initial focus will be on building awareness of the Sennebogen brand and familiarity with the 718 and 738 tree handlers within the industry.

"I'll be working to increase the number of demos so more people have a chance to touch and feel and see what these machines can do. The more exposure this machine has, the more successful it will be. These machines certainly have a ‘wow' factor to them."

The Sennebogen rubber-tired 718 M is a 47,180 lb. (21,400 kg) purpose-built tree care machine equipped with a hydraulic grapple saw attached to its 43 ft. (13 m) telescoping boom. It dismantles trees up to 75 ft. high, and is on rubber tires. Its high-rise and tilting Maxcab operator station elevates the operator for an unobstructed view into the work zone, according to the manufacturer. Its powerful hydraulics provides lifting capacity to grip, load and stack up to 3,700 lb. (1,700 kg), with the precise controls necessary to let operators perform delicate tree surgery.

The 718 R-HD E Series also dismantles trees up to 75 ft. high, and is on tracks for added stability.

The 718 is practical for municipal projects; roadside maintenance; commercial work; right of way clearing; utility line clearance; storm work; along rivers and streams; slopes and embankment maintenance; and other jobs that require the removal of more than trees.

The 738 M, a rubber tired machine, provides similar capabilities on a larger scale: a 95,700 lb. (43,500 kg) machine with 75 ft. (23 m) reach is built to work off-road in heavy land clearing and right-of-way maintenance, easily dismantles trees up to 125 ft high.
