Twin hydraulic horizontal feed roller system offering exceptional grip on timber. The large top feed lifts on an arc, climbing toward the timber rather than lifting straight up and down, this makes climbing butt ends exceptional. High tension due to twin heavy duty springs and a large bearings supporting either side of the top feed roller ensures strength and durability
Simply phenomenal velocity when chipping. Forst will throw the chip right to the rear 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.
Any bearings which need to be greased on Forst are all easily maintained by a central greasing bank, leaving no excuse for poor maintenance.
Highly intelligent bespoke build electrical system managing the no stress device, making sure you never miss a service and many other functions.
Illuminated touch pad, IP 69 rated and running from a printed circuit board means water and vibration aren’t going to let you down. Easily located at either side of the hopper means you don’t have to lean over the hopper to use them.
