The new ST6P is an extension of Först’s range of six-inch capacity machines, which is powered by a 37hp V twin petrol engine, meaning the woodchipper is compliant with the new Stage V emissions legislation coming into play in 2019.
Först say they were able to manufacture the sub 750kg ST6P woodchipper through the use of a lighter engine, GRP panels and a shorter chassis. This allowed the company to utilise the same chipping chamber, flywheel, hopper, and feed roller system used on its ST6 machine.
The ST6P woodchipper boasts features and benefits including the manufacturer’s feedroller system (FörstGrip), which ensures crushing power.
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.
