A Queensland man has died after reportedly falling into a woodchipper at a property in Gympie, around 160km north of Brisbane.

Described as a "decent fella with a heart of gold" by friends, police said Mr Saunders died "instantly" when he fell through the woodchipper.

The man, whose identity is not being released, was with two friends at the time of the accident.

"They are obviously quite traumatised now".

Insp Algie could not yet say if the man had been using the woodchipper unsafely or incorrectly.

None of the men were contracted to do the job, but were helping the owner clear the property in Goomboorian, north-west of the Sunshine Coast.

"It's a horrendous thing to have to attend as a police officer - any sudden death - but these circumstances were absolutely shocking", police acting inspector Paul Algie told ABC.

First responders and anyone investigating the incident have also been offered support services.

A/Insp Agie said: '(Mr Saunders) was placing a tree into a tree shredder, he's become entangled, the circumstances of which are now under investigation.

"That's part of our investigation - that's still ongoing", he said.

"We just implore that people follow those instructions carefully, because obviously only a small mistake can obviously lead to a very, very awful set of circumstances leading to someone passing away".

Queensland Workplace Health and Safety are conducting a full review of scene including the machinery used by the workers.

Police are preparing a report from the coroner.
