Simply no comparison or compromise. An industry first, true 8” performance tool combining compact usability with outstanding performance and quality.
Boasting the 8”x10” ForstGrip feed roller system, Autointelligence no stress system and a flywheel big enough and with enough inertia to move a mountain this machine will ravage timber.
The ST8 really does set a benchmark for all-round excellence. If you’ve been impressed with the ST6 then the ST8 will blow you away. It’s through and through Forst. Tough, fast and relentless.
