White's World


by T H WHITE on July 1, 2019

The team behind the UK distribution of Jensen woodchippers, the world’s original woodchippers first developed in 1884, were delighted to host a stand at the 2019 Arb Show which was held in May at the Westonbirt arboretum.

Several thousand visitors attended the two-day event where Jensen had a prominent stand, drawing in crowds of interested people and resulting in a large number of demonstration bookings throughout the country.

Jensen is known for supplying the widest range of woodchippers in the industry, from 6” to 12” capacity; towed, PTO, tracked and hydraulically-adjustable ‘Spider’ tracks; as well as turntable functionality on all 8” and above machines.

A wide variety of Jensen machinery was available to see at the show, including towed and tracked machines, with both petrol and diesel models on display.

Tree surgeons and arborists looking for a powerful but lightweight all-round chipper showed great interest in the 6” capacity diesel A530L woodchipper. Weighing in at less than 750kg and road-towable, it was one of the most popular machines on the stand. Similarly, the 6” A530L, petrol version, at under 700kg fully braked, attracted much attention. Featuring a 35hp Briggs & Stratton Vanguard engine, and electronic safety touch-sensors fitted as standard, the A530L offers power, performance and safety in a practical sized machine. 

A machine that always draws a crowd is the Jensen A540 Spider. Capable of tackling timber up to 190mm effortlessly, the A540 with Spider tracks is designed for embankments and awkward terrain. Agility and stability comes from independently adjustable hydraulic tracks, both horizontally and vertically.

Bill Johnston, Head of Machinery Imports division and Business Manager for Jensen in the UK, said: “This is the third year we’ve attended the Arb Show with Jensen and we were delighted, not only with the attendance but also the huge level of interest in the brand. It was excellent to meet many existing Jensen owners who were pleased to share their experience of Jensen machinery with us, as well as a host of new customers booking on-site demonstrations.”

“We’re looking forward to seeing lots of those visitors again over the coming weeks, giving them the opportunity to try a Jensen for themselves and experience the power and performance of the world’s original woodchippers.”
