The FM16TW-TC Electric Log Splitter can produce up to a massive 8 tons in splitting force. It has a two-speed ram for soft or hardwood. If you are splitting softwood then pushing the operating lever halfway, gives you the fastest speed with reduced force. When splitting hardwood, pushing the operating lever all the way down gives you the full 8 tons of force at a slower speed. The FM16 log splitter is heavy-duty in every way.  The heavy-duty nature of the log splitter allows it to complete tasks which other competitor brands of log splitters can not. An example of this is that with competitor log splitters, the ram must stop 150mm short of the blade as it does not have the heavy-duty capability to split to the end. The FM16 make it easy to split logs the entire way and removes the physical aspect of having to rip logs apart at the end of the splitting process.

The FM16TW-TC is also equipped with our trademarked DuoCutTM blade that increases the efficiency of splitting and makes the log splitter much better at handling knotty wood than single-blade splitters.

The brand new edition of the FM16TW-TC log splitter comes with a workbench and guard to comply with all new safety regulations. Unlike other manufacturers’ safety cages, our guard has solid sides with no openings so that split logs cannot catch in an opening and cause damage. It also accommodates larger logs than other manufacturers, our guard accommodates up to 400mm* diameter whereas other safety cages only allow 250mm diameter.

The FM16TW-TC also comes with an adjustable height trolley stand for ease of moving around workshops and patios. The trolley stand gives three alternative bed heights of 370mm, 470mm and 820mm. Ram-stop for reducing cycle time with short logs. The FM16TW comes filled with hydraulic oil ready for use.

The heavy-duty FM16TW-TC was designed for long-lasting use and is currently the largest available electric log splitter by Forest Master.

  3. I had to give up manual splitting due to a shoulder injury. I find this machine has amazing power and I get as much joy out of spiltting with it as I did with a maul (only this splits absolutely everything – 1st time every time). The precision is excellent, my logs are now completely uniform. And the whole process is now so quick; I split right next to my indoor hopper – no more trolleying wood from yard to shed, and no more only being able to split on a dry day. Looking at eBay I could get at least 50% of my money back in 4 years – and buying new I’ve 3 years warranty. I am really very happy.

  4. Excellent build quality. Made short work of even the most knotty logs.

  5. Works great in everything I’ve thrown at it so far.

    I opted for the stand but am not using it at the moment. I bought with stand as it’s very expensive option to a add later (£25 with splitter £67 to add later)

Will this run using a 7.5hp generator, max power 3.8kw, rated power 3.3kw? Jenny asked on February 23, 2022

Hi, looking at the specifications, the generator should be fine. We recommend a continuous KVA rating of at least 4.0KVA which your generator achieves.

what maintenance is required for the 8 ton log splitter. re hydraulic oil? John Larking asked on September 20, 2021

The only maintenance required for the log splitter is to top up the hydraulic fluid an occasionally clean the log splitter bed. The log splitter arrives pre-filled with hydraulic fluid and will typically last around 150 hours before you need to think about refilling.
