The FM8T-TC 5-ton Forest MasterTM log splitter is the ideal product when using small to medium wood burners. Unlike other small log splitters which only have a 1500 watt motor and produce 4 ton of force, our FM8 has a 2200 watt motor and produces 5 ton of force. It is also fitted with a stronger moving carriage that holds the pusher block so that it can split harder wood. It is capable of cutting logs up to 370mm in length and 300mm in diameter. To comply with the latest safety regulations it has button and lever operation. It comes filled with hydraulic oil so it is ready to use out of the box.

The FM8T-TC models can also be fitted with our DuocutTM blade (sold separately) that increases the efficiency of splitting and handles knotty wood more easily. With the Duocut blade fitted you can cut logs up to a maximum length of 300mm.

The brand new edition of the heavy-duty FM8T-TC log splitter comes with a workbench and guard to comply with all new safety regulations. Unlike the safety cages on other brands of splitter, our guard has sides with no openings, so that split logs cannot catch in an opening and cause damage. Our guard also allows logs up to 300mm* diameter to be split. The safety cages fitted on other brands only allow up to 250mm.

The FM8T-TC comes with our stand which uses the rear wheels from the log splitter and has simple foot support at the front.

  4. The positive reviews on this site convinced me to get the Forest Master log splitter. I have not been disappointed. This is a solid, well-finished and well-built piece of equipment. I deliberated for days whether to get the FM5 (shorter bed) or FM8, cost being the only issue. Reviews, and the FM video, persuaded me to get the Duocut Blade and, not wanting to limit log length, I decided on the more expensive FM8. Don’t underestimate how heavy this set up is. I have no regrets getting the stand (FM8T-TC) too. Excellent next day delivery. Clear instructions to assemble – as recommended, just prop the splitter vertically against a wall. The Duocut Blade requires a bit of leverage and muscle to position the bolts correctly. Once assembled, the entire set is very stable. Splits logs beautifully! I am delighted with this purchase.
