Beyond Bucket Trucks and Booms: Come Experience SENNEBOGEN Tree Handlers


We purpose build and fine tune every SENNEBOGEN tree handler to meet your unique needs as a tree care industry worker. While there are some jobs that the bucket truck or boom truck is ideally suited for, there are many jobs that the SENNEBOGEN can tackle faster, safer and more efficiently. 


Ever wonder what it's like to operate a SENNEBOGEN Tree Handler?

Remember how you felt the first time you sat behind the wheel of a machine that was way too big for you? You were probably way too young and way too eager. Maybe you snuck your dad’s keys and fired up his rusty old pickup when he was at work. Or maybe you had a father-son bonding moment and pop told you to hop your scrawny butt in the driver’s seat and give it a go. 

You could feel that rush of adrenaline as you clumsily fumbled the keys into the ignition. Your heart raced and your breathing shallowed as you tried to stay focused and remember what you’d seen dad do a hundred times in your life. 

Then, the moment of truth: your foot hit the accelerator. 

A zoom and a jolt of power threw you off guard initially, but eventually you regrouped and found your cool. And then, that’s when the fun began. 

You felt the weight and power of that machine underneath you and within your control. You turned the steering wheel almost effortlessly. You leaned into turns right and left.  And while you were about as awkward as a teen who just hit puberty, you knew this was something you couldn’t get enough of, and you wanted to experience it again. You wanted to run the show. You wanted to bend it to your will. 

Imagine that feeling, only 100x greater

That’s the power of a SENNEBOGEN 718.

Introducing SENNEBOGEN’s 728 Tree Care Handler!

When SENNEBOGEN introduced our 718 purpose-built tree care handler, it made a huge impact in the arboriculture industry.

The Birth of the 738 and 728

This machine achieved production rates up to 10 times greater than traditional methods, while dramatically increasing safety for operators and ground crew.

Then, we decided to go bigger, and we introduced the 738.

The 738 was fitted with the same type of equipment as the 718, but it was sized to reach farther and handle larger trees. It also had a more powerful engine.

This machine allowed crews to take on larger projects and tackle heavier forested areas, cutting 100 to 150 trees per day with no additional crew on site.

Now, we’re meeting in the middle. 

We took the mobility of the 718 and combined it with the reach of the 738 to create the new game-changer in the tree care industry

Meet the 728.
