Two new Först woodchippers strengthen fleet

Having been extremely pleased with the performance of the Först TR8 and ST6 woodchippers, which we purchased in March 2014 and March 2016 respectively, we have extended our fleet of woodchippers by an additional two.

The new ST8 Forst woodchippers will primarily be used in street tree situations, on roadside jobs and domestic and commercial properties. 

Much of the work we undertake is in tight environments, meaning the manoeuverability of the machines is vital. On jobs with difficult access points, the need to be able to unhitch the machine and ensure it only requires one or two colleagues to move it around efficiently and safely is key.

Mike Connick, Managing Director of Connick Tree Care commented: “We turned to Först because the build quality of the machines is excellent and the performance is second to none. From a design perspective, Först have looked at the way contractors operate and identified the issues other machines have. This has allowed them to develop chippers that don’t adopt the little niggles others might.

“Our decision to invest in Först machines is due to how robust and easy to use the machines are. They process timber efficiently, very rarely break down and I love the attention to detail in the design of the machines.”

The new machines will help our teams continue serving homeowners and commercial companies across the South East, as well as our extensive work with local authorities and government entities, including Brighton and Hove Council, Royal Parks and English Heritage.
