In this series of articles, we will be sharing exclusive coverage from all aspects of the ARB Show 2023. 

TP sparked plenty of interest with a demonstration of its new electric woodchipper, the TP175 E-ZE.

This fully battery-powered, 25 hp, electric chipper has a 175 mm capacity, rechargeable lithium batteries and, at just under 750 kg, is road towable with a galvanised chassis.

And, as was demonstrated at the show, it has power to rival any petrol or diesel chipper of the same size.

Sales coordinator Axel Block said: “In the beginning we saw it being sold to local authorities, which it is, but it is mainly going to contractors who work for the local authorities.

"It is a true zero-emission machine. Customers can choose to have three, four or five batteries, for between three and five hours’ runtime.
