Först to showcase new lightweight petrol woodchipper at EHS

Först

Först will be showcasing its new sub 750kg petrol powered woodchipper at this year’s Executive Hire Show (EHS), as diesel alternatives continue to become more and more popular amongst contractors, arborists and landscapers.

The ST6P is an extension of Först’s popular range of six-inch capacity machines, which is powered by a 37hp V twin petrol engine, meaning the woodchipper is not only compliant with the new Stage V emissions legislation coming into play in 2019, but also matches the strength and performance that users have come to expect from Först’s diesel powered machines.

Först was able to manufacture the sub 750kg ST6P woodchipper through the use of a lighter engine, GRP panels and a shorter chassis. This allowed Först to utilise the same chipping chamber, flywheel, hopper, and feed roller system used on its popular ST6 machine, building on its reputation of bringing fast, aggressive and robust woodchippers to market. 

Doug Ghinn, director at Först, commented: “We are very excited to be exhibiting at the Executive Hire Show as this provides us with the perfect platform to showcase to operators the performance levels our petrol powered machines can achieve. Diesel engines will continue to be popular in the arboriculture industry, but it’s important that users are aware that petrol engines can maintain the power and robustness that diesel engines provide, with the added benefit of being far more fuel efficient and a lot quieter during operation.

“The ST6P not only delivers exceptional performance and reliability, but also ensures users don’t have to incur costs to obtain the necessary licence to tow a machine over 750kg, offering true value to tree surgeons and contractors.”

The ST6P woodchipper boasts the features and benefits contractors and tree surgeons have come to expect with Först, including the manufacturer’s unique feedroller system (FörstGrip), which ensures exceptional crushing power. The FörstGrip top feed roller climbs on an arc toward the timber, pulling material down toward the flywheel and naturally climbing butt ends to make the infeed grip exceptional to break the toughest of forks and limbs.

The machine also features an open top flywheel system ensuring chip is thrown, not blown, minimising blockages on wet material and helping to maintain increased velocity when chipping.

As with the whole range of Först woodchippers, the ST6P comes with a three-year warranty as standard for complete peace of mind and is backed up by Först first class service offering.

To get a closer look at the ST6P, visit stand XX at The Executive Hire Show at The Ricoh Arena, Coventry, on the 7 – 8 February 2018.
