We have extended our popular range of six-inch capacity machines with the launch of the PT6, our new premium machine developed specifically for contractors, arborists, landscapers and farmers.
The PT6 is a robust and powerful woodchipper that has its own hydraulic system and reservoir, meaning the machine doesn’t need to be connected to a power unit’s hydraulic system.
The new woodchipper is ideal for any professional with a power unit to drive the machine. Connectivity to a tractors trailer light sockets provides electrical power to our unique Autointelligence Control system, which operates the ‘no stress’ function fitted as standard to the machine.
Doug Ghinn, our Director, commented: “At Först, we constantly strive to develop strong and durable woodchippers that deliver exceptional performance, reliability and true value to tree surgeons and contractors.
“The launch of our new PT6 woodchipper builds on the excellent reputation of our existing six inch capacity range and broadens our offering to a wider market, making the Forst quality and performance available to those who don’t require a self-propelled machine.”
The PT6 woodchipper boasts the features and benefits contractors and tree surgeons have come to expect with Först, including our 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.
