How SENNEBOGEN UPtime Repair Kits Save Operators Time and Money

When you have to stop everything for a small repair, you’re losing money. It’s that simple.

Every minute your SENNEBOGEN equipment is out of service affects your business. Waiting on a technician to come fix the issue only adds time to the clock. Plus, having to pay that worker to do the job subtracts money from your wallet. 

That’s why it’s important to make service, maintenance, and repairs easy—and fast. Why not turn your downtime into uptime by proactively organizing all the required parts and tools for specific tasks?

SENNEBOGEN’S UPtime kits allow you to streamline the repair process. In this article, we’ll introduce you to a variety of kits as well as their components, value, and potential impact on your business.

Comparing Bucket Trucks to the 718 Tree Handler

Most tree service workers are skilled at the traditional method of tree climbing to trim branches and dismantle trunks section-by-section. But, this occupation didn't become one of the most dangerous in the country due to lack of skilled tree cutters.

Testimonial From The First SENNEBOGEN 718 Operator - Rob Frost

Discover what the very first American operator of the SENNEBOGEN 718 has to say about the machine's impressive performance during storm cleanup operations.

"Because of the speed, because of the effortless work that it takes - It's a game changer!"

The SENNEBOGEN 718 is purpose-built to do one job - to safely cut and remove trees faster, more efficiently, and with one operator. The arbor industry employs workers to perform some of the most dangerous job duties in the country. Giant trees fall, heavy limbs cause major destruction, and injuries are common.

SENNEBOGEN 718 vs An Excavator with Attachments

The first hydraulic excavator was originally developed for the construction of the hull docks in 1882. Over the last century it has become the Swiss army knife of construction, demolition, mining and forestry jobs, just to name a few. While not initially intended for tree removal, innovative tree care experts have adapted the excavator for use in forestry and tree service operations.

We'll take a look at how excavators have been fitted with thumb attachments, tree shears, circular saws, and mulcher/mowers to adapt them for cutting trees, shredding limbs or mowing dense undergrowth, and we'll compare that to the efficiency of a SENNEBOGEN 718 tree handler.

SENNEBOGEN 718 Tree Handler vs. a Crane

SENNEBOGEN is on a mission to take the tree care industry to new heights! We talk to tree care industry experts - real operators and arborists - and learn their challenges and daily struggles. With that feedback, we purpose-build our machines to be the solution to those challenges. The SENNEBOGEN 718 truly is a game changer!

While we don't claim to replace every piece of equipment in your tree care removal arsenal, we're proud to say there are many jobs that the SENNEBOGEN 718 is simply better suited for than some of the equipment of yesteryear.

Cranes are popular for tree removal due to their ability to reach great heights. Reach is great, but it's not everything.  Time on the job site with prep work and clean up, plus the work a SENNEBOGEN can do AFTER cutdown, make it better suited for tree removal than a crane. (Yes, it's even better for really tall trees!)
