COOMBES Group expands capabilities with new SENNEBOGEN machine and Xwatch Safety System

COOMBES, a leading provider of forestry and rail services, has recently acquired a new SENNEBOGEN 728e machine to enhance its operations. The company, known for its commitment to safety, has also partnered with Xwatch Safety Solutions to install its advanced safety system on the new machine in the coming weeks.

Last week, COOMBES welcomed the arrival of the SENNEBOGEN 728e, supplied by Molson Group, to its fleet. Eager to put it to the test, the company headed over to Avonmouth Docks for a trial run. COOMBES already relies on the slightly smaller SENNEBOGEN 718, which has proven to be a reliable workhorse for the company’s various projects, particularly in roadside tree works and rail vegetation management on third-party land. 

With the new addition of the SENNEBOGEN 728e, equipped with the state-of-the-art 1650 VOSCH Equipment grapple saw, Xwatch Safety Solutions control system, and an impressive 21-metre reach, COOMBES expands its capabilities and aims to deliver even greater value to its forestry and rail clients. The Xwatch Safety Solutions control system is known for its advanced safety features, ensuring a safe working environment for the company’s operators. 

Commenting on the importance of safety, Dan Leaney, Sales and Operations Director at Xwatch, emphasised, “Safety is not a choice; it is a necessity. At Xwatch, we are dedicated to providing cutting-edge safety solutions to industries like forestry and rail. We are proud to partner with COOMBES to install our Xwatch safety system on their new SENNEBOGEN machine. With our advanced technology, we aim to enhance the safety measures and operational efficiency of their operations.” 

COOMBES encourages industry professionals to keep an eye out for their new machine at the upcoming #raillive2023 event in June. With its remarkable features, the SENNEBOGEN 728e, accompanied by the Xwatch Safety Solutions system, is sure to stand out among the crowd. The company looks forward to demonstrating its expanded capabilities in the field of rail, forestry, and arboriculture.

Their participation underscores the event’s reputation as a gathering point for key industry players, each bringing their unique perspectives and innovative solutions to the forefront of the rail industry.
