For longevity I think chippers need to be over 750kg, for the job they do!


I'm much happier with the thickness of metal and construction methods on the Forst than on the sub 750 chippers.

I've used the 230 on several occasions and even had the pleasure of the black tracked demo machine for 2 days and was just about to seal the deal on one when I heard a friend of mines was going back for warranty due to cracks appearing, this is the 3rd time maybe it's gone back for this reason and he has been offered a full refund and if he wants out more money down to get a 280 when it comes out.. Anyway, redwoods rang me on Friday also as when I saw them at a show last year and said will be thinking of upgrading in March they actually remembered and I have a Forst coming to site tomorrow morning! Then someone mentioned I should take a look at the 160.. There is also a blue one on eBay at the moment in company colour blue! (Don't know anything about the greenmechs) it's also only £7200. That's where I'm at! I absolutely love the 230 but my main concern is its all well and good getting it sorted under warranty for cracks etc whilst it's in place but what happens after 2 years?
