Explore our range of reliable, rugged tree chippers and mulchers
Monitor offer a wide range of auto feed wood chippers, designed by professionals for professionals. We supply arborists, hire companies and more with quality tree chippers that are light weight and boast a small footprint to ensure accessibility. Yet of course, even though they’re light and manoeuvrable, they still offer you great performance.
Our wood chipper brands
To meet the needs of the Australian market, Monitor are proud to distribute two different, world-class brands of wood chipper.
Morbark wood chippers
Designed specifically for the demanding arborist segment, Morbark drum chippers are larger machines that throw chip significantly harder – which means less chance of blockages while you’re on the job.
Morbark chippers’ larger top feed roller means they climb a lot easier. And their 12 month warranty means you can get on with the job with confidence.
Forst wood chippers
If you’re looking for an entry level wood chipper that’s tough and reliable, the Forst range of chippers is ideal. These tracked brush chippers can easily get into the tightest access, and the disc chipper design means they’re practically un-blockable. In fact, Forst chippers can handle even palms and other wetter plant material with ease.
The Forst chipper’s clutchless design means you’ll get a streamlined startup every time – just turn the key and you’re ready to work.
We find the Forst range ideally suited to hire companies. They’re easy to use – even if you haven’t used a chipper before – which makes them great for first-time users and renters. And with a 3 year warranty, they offer you ultimate reliability to boot.
Can you tow a wood chipper behind a ute?
The answer is yes – our 6” chipper weighs just 700kg, and the 8” chipper just under a tonne. That means you can easily transport our wood chippers on a trailer or small truck.

After-sales support for wood chippers
At Monitor Lifts we’re serious about support. Having the right service and maintenance will help extend the life of your chipper, and increase your ROI by ensuring they keep working when other machines give up.
A properly maintained wood chipper will ensure safe operation for both your employees and your customers. Maintenance must be done wherever you need it, whenever you need it, to preserve your investment and operations.
Monitor’s 24-Hour Support Service can provide you with the emergency support, spare parts supply, routine maintenance and training you need – wherever you are in Australia.
Wood chipper parts supply
The cornerstone of responsive service and support is having sufficient critical parts on hand, ready to use. That’s why Monitor have made a commitment to maintaining a $2 million parts inventory.
From our central parts storage in Tamworth (soon to be expanded into an even larger facility to further increase our parts inventory) and through our other 5 warehouses in major cities across Australia, we can supply parts wherever you operate.
Monitor has sales and service outlets in 12 major cities across Australia and New Zealand, supported by a network of regional service teams and service agents.
Our specialist technicians are fully qualified in hydraulics, electrical, and mechanical servicing to keep your vacuum excavation machines running. Their years of experience with this equipment ensures we can offer you reduced downtime and increased safety.
We’re also happy to give you advice over the phone. You can talk to people who know and understand these machines and the real-world situation you’re in. We can help with both operating and troubleshooting for your team.
Our support fleet
We’ve invested heavily in ensuring our support fleet is among the best in Australia. Some of our hardware includes:
With our state-of-the-art service trailers, the Monitor Lifts team can come to you to carry out crucial on-site maintenance. You don’t have to move the machine – instead, we’ll come to you!
The trailers are fully equipped with tools, parts and everything our team need to perform a full service at your site. This efficient service makes it easy for you to keep your wood chippers running at maximum capacity, keeping downtime to a minimum and letting you get on with more work.
We understand that for your business, time is money. You need to keep working to take advantage of whatever business opportunities come your way.
That’s why we’ve invested in our own in-house pilots and aircraft, so that we can offer fast, responsive service to remote locations across Australia.
This amazing capability means we can be there for you when you need us most – giving you expert advice and support to get the problem solved quickly and get you back up and running.
Where possible, Monitor Lifts’ transport trucks allow us to control the quality of delivery you’ll receive. Our drivers know wood chippers, and can give you the advice you need at handover to make sure you’re comfortable with the machine and can get up-and-running without delay.
It’s another example of how we work to ensure a good relationship with you, right from the start.
