Tomcat Wood Chippers

A massive thanks to the guys from Tomcat Wood Chippers for providing the Fransmanshoek Conservancy (operating as an NPO) with new blades and spare parts at a reduced and affordable price. The new parts, organized by Hugo and Frans, make it possible to keep the conservancy chipper going in the fight against alien vegetation infestations and reducing fuel loads that otherwise pose a great fire risk to the natural ecology as well as human settlements within the Conservancy. #conservation #conservancy #chipper #fuelloadreduction #invasivealienplantmanagement ...

Congratulations to Andre from Port Shepstone in KZN with the purchase of his brand new TOMCAT Model 150 AFP wood chipper. Andre is a Macadamia farmer on the South Coast and what makes his farm so unique is the fact that his farming operation is 100% organic! ZERO chemicals/pesticides are used on his farm and ZERO material are being wasted. He uses the wood chipper to create wood chips from the branches collected during pruning season and then uses chips to produce his own compost. The compost then goes back into orchard and used as a mulch. Keep up the good work Andre and thank you for the support! ... See MoreSee Less
