SENNEBOGEN 718 E – the all-rounder for forest management
7 May 2019
Established in 1993, Schumacher Garten- & Landschaftspflege GmbH & Co. KG and its 21-strong team specialize in landscape gardening. Felling and clearing operations, including felling problematic trees, clearing construction sites, grinding tree roots, forestry mulching operations, tree care and shredding, are day-to-day business at the family company, headquartered in the North-Rhine Westphalia region of Germany. This wide range of tasks is now supported by a flexible specialist for harvesting fuel wood and landscaping: the SENNEBOGEN 718 E.
With the mission of achieving the best results for both nature and customers and a focus on environmentally friendly operation, the company invested in a SENNEBOGEN 718 E material handler. After all, this machine lives up to its “Green Efficiency” reputation: Installed as standard, the SENNEBOGEN system offers savings potentials of up to 20% fuel in EcoMode, good for both the environment and the operator’s wallet.
Thanks to the 13-meter-long telescoping stick and a powerful 119 kW diesel engine, the SENNEBOGEN 718 E material handler is well equipped for a multitude of felling and clearing operations. Weighing approximately 22 t, the mobile all-rounder is also extremely service-friendly: Easy access to all machine components, an engine installed in longitudinal direction and a structured layout of its uppercarriage make working on the machine a breeze.
As with all SENNEBOGEN material handlers, the cab can be elevated by 2.70 m to provide an optimal view of the entire work area. Additionally, the cab can be tilted by 30°, enabling complete and trouble-free control over the removal of high-hanging limbs. The operator is ideally protected from falling branches thanks to the additional protective grating on the windshield and roof.
A sliding door gives the driver easy and safe access to the comfortable Maxcab with an ergonomically optimized driver seat that is gentle on the back and ensures fatigue-free working. The SENNEBOGEN 718 E also features the proven interactive SENCON control system that allows drivers to intuitively monitor the machine’s operating state and consumption.
Managing Director Michael Schumacher reaffirms his decision to purchase: “With its power and the sensitive control, the machine is optimally equipped to handle the difficult tasks of our industry. At the same time, it has to be virtually maintenance-free and operate reliably. For years, SENNEBOGEN has offered us the highest quality with top service. Not least because Schlüter Baumaschinen has proven to be an extremely reliable service partner.”
