Client Testimonials

Paddy Ilman from Nelspruit – TOMCAT Model 250 AFE

"I purchased a TOMCAT Model 250 AFE wood chipper and I am very impressed with the machine. Prior to this I ran an American brand chipper. The TOMCAT chipper is a strong, reliable and well priced machine and best of all is the spare parts are all local. I am pleased I made the move."

Jeremy - Country Lane Lodge in White River – TOMCAT Model 150 CDP

"I have a 10ha macadamia farm in white river and was getting charged exorbitant rates to rent a chipper for my annual pruning. I decided to buy a TOMCAT PTO driven wood chipper and have never looked back. My ROI will be three years. The service I get from TOMCAT is world class."

Schalk from Agri Pruning, Mpumalanga – 2 x TOMCAT Model 250 AFE & 375 AFE IC

"I run an agricultural pruning business called AgriPruning in Mpumalanga. I recently bought the TOMCAT Model 375 AFE IC chipper and it has been a fantastic purchase. It gives me the confidence to tackle any job."

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.”

Rob Black from Leven Point (PTY) LTD - TOMCAT Model 200 AFE
"Been a contractor for a while. If your machine is not operating due to a break down this equates to loss in income. Part of the factors in our choice for a chipper was Locally manufactured and with a dedicated support team and structure. Our TOMCAT Model 200 AFE  was chipping Pecan Nut prunings, some 150 km from our base when the drum shaft sheared off. This happened due to operator error.

I made a short video and a phone call to TOMCAT Chippers, at 4:00pm on a Wednesday afternoon. Thursday morning a drum, bearings and other spares held in the spares department were couriered to Durban. Parts were collected from EPX on Monday and by 12:00pm the chipper repairs completed and returned to site Tuesday to complete the contract.  Three days of down time. Using TOMCAT Parts and service give me confidence and reliability in my machine. Knowing I have minimal down time.

Thank you, Hugo, and team, for the back up support."

MJ Odendal – TOPTURF Cape Town – TOMCAT 150 CDE Wood Chipper
"Speedy and professional service. Excellent craftsmanship. I will recommend TOMCAT Wood Chippers to anyone!"

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."

Joubert van Vuuren – Bloemfontein Tree Felling – TOMCAT Model 200 AFE Wood Chipper

Simon Barlow – Rustenberg Wine Estate
"Out of all the chippers we have seen this is by far the best game one. Ease of use, hardiness and great service makes it a must-have if you are clearing bush and trees."

Adriaan Louw – TOMCAT Model 150 AFE SC Wood Chipper
"Very happy with how the chipper works and very happy with the excellent service we received from TOMCAT. Definitely a company to recommend to anyone."

Fred The Feller – 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."

Lee Mager – Arbor Ascent Tree Care , Cape Town – TOMCAT Model 1000 CDE Wood Chipper
"Very productive, easy to handle & very mobile as you can pull it right next to the branches."

Brett Wortmann – Selborne Golf Estate – TOMCAT Model 1200 AFE Wood Chipper
"These chippers speak for themselves - definitely quality. We are using it constantly throughout the year. We use it 2 to 3 days a week between the golf course and garden departments. If I had to do it over, I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to buy a TOMCAT Wood Chipper again or to promote your brand."
