TOMCAT Chippers wil net vir Oom Hennie van Albertinia in die Wes-Kaap baie geluk sê met die aankoop van sy nuwe TOMCAT Model 150 AFP hout chipper en baie dankie vir die ondersteuning. Hierdie masjien is hard aan die werk om sytakke en onbruikbare stamme van 'n ou Denne plantasie op te chip. Die chips word gebruik as deklaag veral om die sand grond bietjie vastigheid te gee.

Kontak ons hoofkantoor gerus indien U 'n gratis demonstrasie wil sien!

See you at the Riversdale Agricultural Show 14-17 Feb 2018!

One of our TOMCAT dealers, M.Briers Landboudienste, is showcasing a wide range of equipment at the annual Riversdale Agricultural Show next week.

M.Briers Landboudienste began operating from Riversdale in the Western Cape in 1999, catering for clients from Heidelberg to Witsand, Stilbaai to Mosselbay and inland as far as Ladismith. Their main branch and head office is still in Riversdale, just behind Overberg Agri. They've also opened a branch in George expanding their dealer network into the Kamanassie, Crags, Knysna and Oudshoorn areas.

M.Briers are involved in everything from sales to repairs of various farming implements and offer a wide range of brands, including our TOMCAT range. With 13 years’ experience they are experts in the agricultural field and after sales service is one of their top priorities!

They will be exhibiting at the Riversdale Agricultural Show from 14 to 17 February, showcasing a diverse selection of equipment and TOMCAT Wood Chippers are thrilled to be part of the exhibition. We invite anyone in the area to attend the show. More info here: http://riversdaler.co.za/skou/

We are thrilled to feature one of our oldest customers this week: FRED THE FELLER. Fred is one of the largest and most well-known tree-fellers in the Knysna, Plettenberg Bay and Crags area.

Having recently sold his old chipper (which served him well for 7 years), he has just upgraded to a big TOMCAT Model 250 AFE – full spec with a hydraulic lift cylinder and a 65Hp Kirloskar diesel engine. This powerful engine allows the unit to run all day to increase efficiency. The TOMCAT Model 250 AFE is perfect for his larger tree-felling jobs, while his TOMCAT Model 200 AFE is utilized for smaller work. Fred uses his chippers for clearing/rental purposes and also to chip branches when felling large trees to create fewer loads to cart away.

He also invested in a new tipper truck at the end of last year. This is used to cart away chips if customers do not want to reuse them for other purposes. The new truck reduces the number of trips to the landfill and the premises are cleaned up in double time by chipping directly into the truck!

We are really thankful for Fred the Feller’s loyal support over the years and we are confident that this new addition will help to make the workload significantly easier for him and his clients every day.

If you would like to make use of his services or rent a chipper from someone in your area, have a look at our rentals page for their contact details. http://tomcatchippers.co.za/rentals/
