SIMPLICITY OF MAINTENANCE
Two catches and two bolts to access the service part for the machine. One bolt to remove the anvil.
A simple yet advanced electrical control system taking care of all the electrics on the machine. Historically electrics on plant and machinery are a troublesome – AutoIntelligence overcomes this with a completely water and vibration proof system designed and tested in the toughest environments.

FÖRSTGRIP FEED ROLLER SYSTEM
The Först Unique feedroller system with emphasis on exceptional crushing power. The FörstGrip top feed roller climbs on an arc toward the timber, pulling the material toward the flywheel and naturally climbing butt ends to make infeed grip exceptional. Twin high tension springs either side of the roller as well as the sheer weight and gravitational pull mean even the toughest forks and limbs are broken.
OPEN TOP FLYWHEEL SYSTEM
Simply phenomenal velocity when chipping. Först will throw the chip right to the front 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.
