Additional information

A simple yet advanced electrical control system taking care of all the electrics on the machine. Historically electrics on plant and machinery are a troublesome – AutoIntelligence overcomes this with a completely water and vibration proof system designed and tested in the toughest environments. This system gives excellent usability and outstanding reliability, it will also make you aware when servicing is due and will recommend routine maintenance.


Simply phenomenal velocity when chipping. Forst will throw the chip right to the front of your wagon due to the open top flywheel system with large gusseted draught fins at the rear. Chip is thrown, not blown meaning blockages on wet material are simply not a problem.


The Forst Unique feedroller system with emphasis on exceptional crushing power. The ForstGrip top feed roller climbs on an arc toward the timber, pulling the material toward the flywheel and naturally climbing butt ends to make infeed grip exceptional. Twin high tension springs either side of the roller as well as the sheer weight and gravitational pull mean even the toughest forks and limbs are broken


Illuminated touch pad, IP 69 rated feed controls to remove any possibility of water and vibration issues related to electrics. Easily located at either side of the hopper mean that you don’t have to lean over the hopper to use them.
