Tony Dighton of T.D Environmental Services won a new Först ST6 P woodchipper in the ‘Win a Chipper’ competition.
Tree surgeons, contractors and arborists were entered into a prize draw after purchasing a Först t-shirt. With hundreds of entries, the Mayor of Andover, Hampshire announced the 22 year-old as the overall winner.
Tony said: “To say I’m over the moon to win a brand new Först woodchipper is a bit of an understatement! My business has been operating for nearly three years now and is becoming established, but I have always had to hire in equipment. Now being the proud owner of my first piece of machinery in the ST6 P will really help take my business to the next level.”
The ST6 P is Först’s first petrol-powered sub-750kg woodchipper and is an extension of the manufacturer’s range of six-inch capacity machines, and has a 37hp V twin engine.
Doug Ghinn, Director at Först, said: “Everyone at Först is delighted for Tony and we are thankful so many people entered the competition. Tony is in the early stages of his career and the addition to such a high-performance woodchipper will be of great benefit to his business.”
