Först, a leading supplier of high performance and robust woodchippers, has expanded its petrol woodchipper offering with the launch of the TR6P, the first and famous Först 6” tracked woodchipper, now with a fuel efficient 37hp petrol engine.

Following the recent introduction of the hugely popular ST6P, the new TR6P utilises the same 37hp V twin petrol engine, meaning that not only is the woodchipper compliant with the new Stage V emissions regulations coming into play in 2019, but it also matches the strength and performance users have come to expect from Först’s diesel powered machines.

An additional benefit of the TR6P that will be hugely appealing to contractors, arborists, landscapers and farmers alike is the use of a petrol engine ensures the machine is much quieter during operation and is a far more cost effective option when compared to diesel alternatives, without compromising on performance or quality.

With a lighter weight of only 1200kg, the TR6P woodchipper can track faster and utilises the same chipping chamber, flywheel, hopper, and feed roller system as users have come to expect on all Först models, building on its reputation of bringing fast, aggressive and robust woodchippers to market.

Doug Ghinn, Director at Först, said: “We are very excited to bring another petrol powered machine to market that provides operators with the power and robustness required to carry out their day-to-day jobs, with the added benefit of being far more cost effective and quieter during operation.

“The success of the ST6P is proof that, although diesel engines will continue to be popular in the arboriculture industry, more and more operators are becoming aware of the benefits petrol engines can provide, without having to compromise on performance. The introduction of the TR6P is yet another example of our continued investment in the future of the industry and how Först fully understands the needs of its customers.”

The TR6P woodchipper boasts the features and benefits contractors and tree surgeons have come to expect with Först, including the manufacturer’s 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.

As with the whole range of Först woodchippers, the TR6P comes with a three-year warranty as standard for complete peace of mind and is backed up by Först first class service offering.
