Simply Först. Simply great products

Since launching in 2013, Först has rapidly become the market leaders for commercial woodchippers throughout Europe. The brand has become a firm favourite for arborists, rail contractors, local authorities, powerline contractors and rental/hire companies, thanks to its absolute focus on performance and reliability, as well as being the first company in the industry to offer a three-year, no-quibble warranty on all machines.

Global Machinery Sales supplies the arboriculture, forestry, access, construction and landscaping industries with machines, including woodchippers, stump grinders, spider lifts, spider cranes and forestry mowers across the country from its locations in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.

Global Machinery Sales offers both wheeled and tracked Först chippers, but has noted Australian customers are particularly interested in the ST8D and ST6P models.

“One thing I hear a lot from contacts in the arb industry about Först chippers is ‘Wow! Someone has put some serious thought into these machines,’” said Brian Evans, Director at Global. “The access to the engine, grease points, blades and variable speed controls are all designed around the end user, making service and maintenance easier.”

Boasting 45 horsepower with a huge amount of torque and phenomenal performance, the Först ST8D makes light work of any type of timber and brash up to 8″ in diameter. The ST8D is fast, aggressive and powerful, with its Kubota diesel engine delivering exceptional fuel economy. The chipper is compact enough for the city, yet offers performance comparable to machines twice its physical size.

The Först ST6P is the fastest, most aggressive and most robust machine in its class, making it the best-selling 6″ capacity petrol woodchipper in the UK and Europe. At the heart of the machine is the industryrenowned FörstGrip feed roller system and Först flywheel system, giving this machine unmatched performance in processing all types of material.

Brian’s son Sam Evans, who also works in the business as the General Manager, shared this feedback from an ST6P customer: “The customer came back saying that the Först machine did the job in half the time of the last 6″ chipper – a different brand – he’d rented. He was really pleased with it.”

The reliability and ease of maintenance of Först machines makes them ideal for arborists undertaking any type of work. Add to that their robust build quality and resulting ability to take a pounding from the most reckless of customers, then why not consider adding Först machines to your fleet today?
