Jensen Success At Arb Show

Jensen Success At Arb Show: The team behind the UK distribution of Jensen woodchippers, the world’s first and original woodchippers developed in 1884, were delighted to host a stand at the 2019 Arb Show this month.

With a prominent stand overlooking the entrance, Jensen woodchippers were on full display to several thousand visitors that attended over the course of the two-day event, drawing in crowds of interested people and resulting in a large number of demonstration bookings throughout the country.

Jensen are known for supplying the widest range of woodchippers in the industry, from 6” to 12” capacity; towed, PTO, tracked and hydraulically-adjustable ‘Spider’ tracks; as well as turntable functionality on all 8” and above machines.

A wide variety of Jensen machinery was available to see at the show, including towed and tracked machines, having both petrol and diesel models on display.

The 6” capacity, diesel A530L woodchipper is road-towable at less than 750kg, which made it one of the most popular machines on the stand from interested tree surgeons and arborists looking for a powerful but lightweight all-round chipper.

Similarly, the 6” A530L, petrol version, at under 700kg fully braked attracted much attention on the stand. With a 35hp Briggs & Stratton Vanguard engine, and electronic safety touch-sensors fitted as standard, the A530L offers power, performance and safety in a practical sized machine.

Always one of the machines to draw a crowd is the Jensen A540 Spider, and at this year’s Arb Show it was no different.

Capable of tackling timber up to 190mm effortlessly, the A540 with Spider tracks is designed for embankments and awkward terrain.

Agile and manoeuvrable, visitors to the stand were impressed to learn about the stability benefits of the A540 Spider, which features independently adjustable hydraulic tracks both horizontally and vertically.

Visitors to the stand were varied with hugely interesting careers and equipment requirements, from independent tree surgeons looking for a single woodchipper for daily tasks through to large, crane-fed machines for highway and railway maintenance.

“This is the third year we’ve attended the Arb Show with Jensen and we were delighted with not only the turn out to the event but the huge level of interest in the brand”, says Bill Johnston, Head of Machinery Imports division and Business Manager for Jensen in the UK.

He continues, “It was excellent to meet a large number of existing Jensen owners who were pleased to share their experience of Jensen machinery with us, as well as a whole host of new customers booking on-site demonstrations.”

“We’re looking forward to seeing lots of those visitors again over the coming weeks, giving them the opportunity to try a Jensen for themselves and experience the power and performance of the world’s original woodchippers.”

The Jensen dealer for Wales, Riverlea, supported the stand at the show and was represented by Sales Manager Paul Austin.

“This was my first time at the Arb Show and I found it very interested. We were pleased to speak to visitors and leave at the end of the show with some leads, which I hope will generate some more sales for Jensen over the coming months.”

Först Arb Show Preview

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.
