From big to small we manufacture them all!

We offer the widest range of locally designed and manufactured engine-driven wood chippers on the continent! Each unit was designed and purpose-built for a specific industry or application. Our chippers range between 100 mm and 375 mm capacity. All our chippers are available as a tractor-driven unit or with an electric motor.

Making compost like a boss

Using our range of compost turners is by far the most cost-effective and efficient way to turn your compost when doing it on a large scale. We manufacture the Wikkelnick range of compost turners that's been designed and built in Worcester since the early 2000s and sold across South Africa. The robust design and the hydraulic horizontal /vertical lift function makes this compost turner the most popular unit on the market.

FAE STC200 Stone Crusher for hire in SA

We offer a contracting service on our PTO stone crusher paired with the powerful New Holland T6090 tractor to crush rocks and stones in your vineyards and orchards or when you want to level the soil before establishing a new block. For more info please contact us.

Utilising Invasive Species - Bos Tot Kos

Bos-tot-kos is when encroaching bush/alien vegetation is cut down and processed into feed for sheep, goats, cattle and game. Producing bushfeed is definitely not for the faint-hearted. It is hard work and needs dedication. You will need some tools to produce it and it is labour intensive. Despite this, the benefits of producing bushfeed are endless.

Woodchip Mulch

It has been proven over time that there are many benefits of applying mulch in your garden.  Have you ever wondered why one should use wood chips as mulch? Wood chips are a sustainable source. Most wood chips in South Africa are produced from alien clearing projects or by chipping wood that would have ended up on a landfill site.  So by using wood chips as mulch you are utilising something that would have been burned or not used.

Clearing Alien Vegetation and river systems

Alien vegetation is plants and trees that are native in another country and came over to our country where they settled between our indigenous vegetation. Some alien vegetation was brought to South Africa centuries ago intentionally as these plants possess many beneficial properties. Some aliens, however, have been spread unintentionally over the years, entering our country on people’s shoes, tents, ships, animals, imported plants and airplanes. But since these species are not indigenous to South Africa they pose several risks.

Effective composting

Compost in its simplest form is a recycling process where organic matter such as wood, vegetable scraps and leaves which is regarded as waste, is decomposed and turned into a product rich in nutrients that feeds the soil. Compost is the product created through a natural process where organic (waste) products are combined so that micro-organisms can develop and decompose these materials into a useable product called compost.

Chipping difficult & fibrous palms, reeds and grape-vines

Palms are one of the most popular trees in Southern Africa especially along the coastal towns of our country. During a proper trimming session a decent sized palm tree will produce quite a lot of waste. If palm fronds are left unprocessed (in their natural form) on the ground they will take many years to decompose. The fibre inside palm leaves is very tough and does not break down easily. Palm leaves are extremely durable and do not simply rot and decompose like other plants.

CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

Jannie Theron - Owner of First Tree Felling

TOMCAT 200AFE, TOMCAT 350SG Stump Grinder and TOMCAT 450HV Log Splitter

“By incorporating the TOMCAT fleet into our business, we have improved our efficiency on site which eliminates numerous trips to dump sites and are now utilizing the chipped mulch from the TOMCAT 200AFE for customers who are in search of mulch. The advantage of having a TOMCAT 450HV Log Splitter has also allowed us to offer an additional service for firewood to customers. To top it all off the TOMCAT 350SG Stump Grinder allows us to offer a complete solution to our customers.”

Fourie Zulch – Wakkerstroom Boerdery Ceres

TOMCAT 250 AFP Wood Chipper

"We were in the market for a new woodchipper after our old chipper of 18 years was retired. Imported wood chippers were quite expensive. I phoned TOMCAT Chippers to arrange a demonstration. At first I was sceptical about a chipper that was so much more affordable than imported chippers. I was absolutely amazed at the performance of the woodchipper. We bought a TOMCAT 250 AFP and the service was great. After a year we wanted to customize the chipper to work better in our application on the farm. TOMCAT helped us with open arms and made all the changes in their workshop. I am very glad that I decided to buy a TOMCAT. This woodchipper works so fast that it catches up with the pruning team, where the old one used to get left behind. If I were to buy another woodchipper, I would definitely buy a TOMCAT again, but maybe a bit bigger."

TOMCAT Model 200 AFE & Model 250 AFE Wood Chipper

"I have owned two TOMCAT wood chippers and between the two I have nearly logged 1000 hours of trouble-free operation. Spares are no problem, couriered the next day unlike imported machines, so from my experience I wouldn’t hesitate to highly recommend these very capable machines."

Sam Hardingham – Everyday Arbor, Australia

TOMCAT Model 100 CDT Wood Chipper

"It looks like a toy, but the Tomcat 100 CDT wood chipper is far from the toy performance you might expect from a chipper of this size. Its design and build quality rival well known chipper manufacturers whilst being possibly one of the most maneuverable chippers on the market. Of course, it's not going to process material as quickly as a larger machine, but limited access jobs can be tackled with a different approach."
