Först Arb Show Preview: Först, a leading supplier of high performance and robust woodchippers, will be at this year’s Arb Show at Westonbirt National Arboretum, where it will be showcasing its latest fuel efficient, petrol powered machines.
At the heart of the stand will be Först’s ST6 P woodchipper, a six-inch capacity machine that is powered by a 37hp V twin petrol engine, meaning the woodchipper not only weighs under 750kg, but also meets Stage V emissions regulations coming into force in 2019.
Powered by the same engine, the TR6 P will also be showcased on stand, highlighting the efficiency benefits of the new petrol driven fleet and how the woodchippers can match the strength and performance users have some to expect from Först’s diesel powered machines.
Doug Ghinn, Director at Först, said: “We are very excited to be exhibiting our new petrol woodchippers in support of our established ranges as this allows tree surgeons and contractors to see up close the exceptional performance, reliability and true value our machines can deliver.
“The Arb Show is a highlight on our event calendar and offers everyone from trade professionals through to those simply just starting their arboriculture career a fantastic opportunity to lean more about all aspects of the industry.”
Visitors to the stand will also be able to get a close look at Först’s extensive range of established wheeled, tracked and PTO woodchippers. These include the XR8 Traxion, a powerful and exceptionally versatile woodchipper specifically designed to traverse banks and slopes up to 35 degrees with ease, and the PT6, which has its own hydraulic system and reservoir, meaning the machine doesn’t need to be connected to a power unit’s hydraulic system.
