A tree care handler, sometimes also called a felling crane, is an excavator equipped with a telescopic boom. At its tip, powerful attachments can be operated via a separate hydraulic circuit, e.g.:
The machines are used in tree care, landscape maintenance, embankment maintenance, timber harvesting, mulching and clearing work.
Tree care handlers are mostly used by tree services or municipalities. Particularly along roads, trees are subject to road safety regulations, which is why they have to be professionally maintained on a regular basis. This is where the machine shows its strengths: In tree care as well as in tree felling work, no tree climbers or aerial work platforms are required; instead, one employee sits safely in the height-adjustable cab, which is equipped with a full safety guard. This means maximum safety and saves valuable time. Because tree care handlers usually work much more efficiently than conventional solutions.
