18HP Petrol Wood Chipper with Electric Start

If you’re looking for a powerful petrol wood chipper that is capable of shredding a large amount of garden waste then you can’t look much further than the Forest Master FM18DD (GB2008049.5).

The FM18DD is able to chip and shred any wood up to 5″ in diameter, making it perfect for big garden jobs. Powering the chipper is the very latest LCT Maxx 18HP 478cc 4-stroke petrol engine, capable of chipping any freshly cut wood from hard to soft.

This machine has been thoroughly tried and tested by industry professionals in a range of garden and landscaping jobs to ensure that the machine can handle pretty much anything you can throw at it. Forest Master wood chippers and garden shredders excel in being the most powerful chippers of their size.

The direct-drive and compact design allow the petrol wood chipper to be very quickly manoeuvred, assembled or disassembled and can be efficiently stored in the back of a small van or estate car if you require a machine that can easily travel from location to location.

Impressively, the powerful and compact chipper only requires very minimal maintenance. You need only check the oil level and the cutting blades of the chipper, both of which can be very easily replaced or refilled in just a few short moments. 

Both the feed hopper and exit chute also utilise a hinged design which means you can gain access to the chipper drum promptly with the removal of just a single bolt. Equipped with twin reversible blades, the need for constant sharpening is no more. When one side of the blades dull, you can simply flip turn the blades over and effectively take full advantage of double the life span.

Overall, the 18HP petrol wood chipper is the perfect machine for shredding large volumes of wood on a regular basis. It’s built for absolute power, simplicity and manoeuvrability which you won’t find anywhere else on the market.

Please note that this item is not pre-filled and requires 1.1L (1100ml) of standard engine oil. We recommend 10W-40 engine oil.

Q & A

What is the largest diameter branch your machines can shred? Can they shred coconut husks? Eric Sylvan asked on March 9, 2023

The FM18DDES will shred up to 5 inches (125mm) in diameter. This hasn't been tested with Coconut Husk but I imagine the machine will be perfectly capable of shredding these. It may be best to feed these through with some branches just to give the drum something to latch onto and ensure the husks are self-fed easily into the machine.
