The new Sennebogen 718 is a unique machine on the market for fuel wood harvesting and landscape conservation. The overall concept impresses with the elevating multicab comfort cab which can be raised to a viewing height of 4.8 m, a special boom system with a 13 m reach and 1.6 t load, as well as attachments specially designed to suit the device.
The development of the SENNEBOGEN 718 was inspired by legislation. Wood for fuel has grown immensely in significance in light of the Renewable Energies Act (EEG). Used in conjunction with the Bracke C16 felling head, the SENNEBOGEN 718 is the ideal machine for ensuring extremely economic fuel wood harvesting, but the machine has even more to offer via a hydraulic quick-change system, it is possible to switch extremely quickly between felling head, harvester heads, timber grabs and felling grabs etc.
The pressure control for the relevant attachments is activated via the on-board software and the hydraulics system controlled accordingly. The extremely stable boom made of fine-grain steel was developed specifically for the requirements of the relevant applications with different attachments. The hydraulic system and hose routing have been adapted and the boom in the jib helps achieve the unique reach of 13 m with 1.6 t load. This enables safety distances to be significantly reduced when felling. This makes the SENNEBOGEN 718 a multifunctional and highly flexible machine with a wide range of uses.
Whether landscape conservation, municipal services, embankment restoration, river bank maintenance, problematic felling, cutting structure gauges or tree maintenance - the machine can be used all year round. The compact dimensions with a width of 2.58 m, a length of 4.74 m and a 2.3 m rear end radius mean that the machine can also be used in even the most confined spaces. With an operating weight of just 19.5 t and wide single pneumatic tyres, The machine can be driven carefully on forest roads or green areas. The weight and dimensions also make transportation easy and relatively cheap. The multicab comfort cab can be elevated to a viewing height of 4.8 m and offers the best overview and maximum safety for all tasks. The raised position of the driver is a particular advantage for construction site boundaries, slopes and during work over dykes or in ditches.
