The SENNEBOGEN 738 is our largest and most robust tree care handler. Perfectly suited for forest maintenance, heavy land clearing and large tree removal along thoroughfares, service roads and railway lines, the 738 offers maximum reach and the ability to use an array of attachments with no loss of power. Felling trees of the greatest heights, log handling, timber harvesting, and large-scale cleanup are a breeze for this beast of a tree care handler. 

Twice the size of the 718, the 738 extends to a reach of 75 ft. (23 m) while, according to operators, handling with the same fluidity, the same precision, the same fast cycle times as its smaller version.

Why did SENNEBOGEN build the 738 tree care handler? 

As always, our goal at SENNEBOGEN is continuous innovation.  We purpose-build each machine specific to its industry, and we don’t stop making improvements to our models. 

The 738 was born out of the need for a timber harvest and large tree removal machine that handled just as easily as its smaller counterparts – the 718 and 728.

Benefits of the 738 Tree Care Handler

Got Reach?  

The new SENNEBOGEN 738 E boasts a huge reach of nearly 75 feet, making it the perfect purpose-built machine for removing problematic trees and for fuel timber harvesting. 

Being able to dismantle trees up to 125 ft. (38 m) make the 738 a true game changer.

Maximum Visibility: Unparalleled Safety

The 738 was designed to optimize safety and productivity. For that to happen, we wanted to make sure our operators could see even more clearly than before. So, we optimized the view from the MaxCab by way of huge panoramic windows. We allowed the cab to tilt up to 30 degrees for the best viewing angle. Plus, the cab can be raised up to 6.5-meter eye level – just over 22 feet. 

 

No Terrain is Too Difficult

Finally, to maximize the performance of this stellar machine, we had to make it capable of navigating even the most challenging terrain. All-wheel drive, forestry axles and a robust undercarriage make getting to the job site a breeze.

What kind of tree care jobs is the 738 best suited for? 

No job is too big for the 738. The largest of our tree care handler line, the 738 is well suited for forest maintenance, timber harvest, large-scale tree removal and cleanup. Ideal for heavily wooded areas and mountainous regions, this beast can handle the biggest jobs with ease. 

  • Forest maintenance
  • Timber harvest
  • Large tree removal
  • High growth height trees
  • Heavily wooded areas
  • Rough and mountainous terrain 

Operator Rob Frost estimates the 738 could move at a pace of cutting 100-150 trees in a single day with no additional crew. 

 

The SENNEBOGEN 738 at Work

Atlas Tree Surgery Inc. of Santa Rosa, CA is a perfect example of the 738 in action. Rich Kingsborough now houses a full SENNEBOGEN fleet that includes six 718 E machines in both mobile and crawler versions, plus one 738. For Kingsborough, this specialized fleet means more than added capacity and new projects for Atlas. 

“The most important thing is that SENNEBOGEN has proven to perfectly align with our company mission: To elevate the standard of our industry through safety, training, and innovation.”
