  1. Are forst the only guys that offer an 8 inch diesel machine these days then?
  2. Interesting @KhrissI'm no engineer but the Forst works great for me and never had any issues with the blades but I do make sure I buy genuine ones as have heard of people having issues with the copies. Not sure if its to do with the Forst blade design but the chip quality is also really good and consistent
  3. Well said Butters, I have no complaints to make about Forst. In my opinion and experience they are by far the best chipper on the market and best service and aftersales from Redwoods. Forst do seem to have some haters online but reads like lots of this is from people that aren't even running a Forst chipper! They have clearly taken over the chipper market and are the most popular machine out there these days, i think lots of the anti Forst could be coming from other manufacturers and dealers that are losing lots of business to Forst!
  4. Buy a Forst - their bearings are warrantied for 3 years
  5. I have used them side by side and very different machines - forst tr8 was much more aggressive and powerful, plus threw the chip much better
  6. Forst TR8 all day, beats the timberwolf hands down in terms of performance and back up from Redwood
  7. Talk to Redwood they are very helpful - 01264 721790
  8. If weight isn't an issue, try the Forst ST6 - if you liked a tw150 you'll love an ST6
  9. How many TP dealers are there in the UK?
  10. Seen PTO TPs about but perhaps that's because there isn't much to go wrong with PTO chippers - good after sales and back-up is as important as getting the right chipper!
  11. Just spotted this advertised http://redwoodused.com/car/bandit-2005/
  12. Has anyone tried the Forst or Timberwolf petrol 6" chippers?
  13. Glenn, try talking to Orange Plant - i believe they import Carlton and are based around the midlands, definitely worth a phone call
  14. No I think his was an older machine, think a trader offered him around 4k with the electric fault but not sure what he sold it for in the end. Sound good value for a 2009 machine with 12" capacity but I guess you run the risk of downtime if you have to wait for parts to come in from US. Also could be hard for you to see on if you decided to change it in a few years time... Is it the 12 inch capacity that's tempting you?
