FÖRST has unveiled a new sub-750 kg petrol woodchipper which it described as “something of a revolution for arboriculture”.

The new Först TT6 weighs in at 745 kg, with a 270-degree turntable and a fully emission-compliant 37 horsepower. It’s perfect for city contractors and any arborists looking for outstanding performance, unrivalled manoeuvrability and convenience.

Built to be tougher and stronger than its predecessors it incorporates the chipping chamber and engine from the Först ST6P and is designed sleek and sharp to look good behind any vehicle.

It measures 2,800 mm in transport position and 2,250 mm when turned 90 degrees. There’s a wide hopper right down to the FörstGrip feed, which in turn gives an exceptional grip on timber.

The introduction of the TT6 follows months of rigorous testing to guarantee a strong, robust product and is backed by a three-year warranty.

The TT6 is sold directly from Först, the manufacturer, serving customers from UK locations including Andover, Hampshire, South Yorkshire, Glasgow and the company’s new depot in Doncaster.

“We put a depot in Doncaster in order to get closer to our customers in the north,” said Douglas Ghinn, Först sales and marketing director. “From this depot we now sell new and used woodchippers, hire chippers and carry out servicing on all makes and models. It’s our aim to provide customer service and care that is second to none.”
