A MAJOR distributor has added another woodchipper manufacturer to its growing lineup of brands. 

Japanese firm Ohashi and its "unique little machines" joins TH White's Machinery Imports range. 

With a capacity from three to six inches, Ohashi woodchippers are said to be premium machines of "exceptional build quality". 

The manufacturer was founded in Japan in 1988 and has since developed agricultural and forestry-focused products that are low-impact – providing a high level of performance and low level of pollution.

These products are widely used throughout the European market, earning a solid reputation for advanced environmental and safety standards. With this significant success in France, Germany and Italy in recent years, TH White bosses expect these compact chippers to be as popular here in the UK.

Bill Johnston, director of Machinery Imports, said: “Feedback received from numerous demonstrations confirms that the Ohashi woodchipper provides a great solution for our contractors, whilst reducing their need for additional labour. 

Forestry Journal:

"We have been able to access the smallest of areas to complete some significant chipping works. Stock has now arrived in the UK and our sales team are busy distributing to a UK-wide dealer network.”

TH White says Ohashi offers the "most powerful compact chipper in its class", providing easier access to jobs and the reduced labour of dragging materials to collection points. 

With a max width of 720 mm, there aren’t many side gates or doorways that the Ohashi range can’t pass through, making them highly manoeuvrable.
