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 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 in 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 remove 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 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.

  1. Richard (verified owner)

    Excellent service, prompt delivery. Straightforward assembly. The machine looks well designed and made, and works very well so far, easy and safe to use. Very pleased overall. The large wheels could be a bit more robust and the hub caps seem unnecessary and don’t fit very well, otherwise excellent.

  2. Matthew Holloway (verified owner)

    This is great kit, quickly delivered and FM offer good phone support if you have any queries. It has dealt with anything we have thrown at it so far including some very knotty oak blocks.

  3. Stefano P. (verified owner)

    Great unit, but arrived with a number of M8 bolts missing. Operation is great though, just note you’ll need two people to unpack and set it up.

  4. Peter M. (verified owner)

    I’ve used
    ThIs
    Machine for a
    Couple of hours & found it to be
    Faultless.

  5. Kevin D. (verified owner)

    Delivered promptly. Not opened yet. Delivery drivers (Tufnells?) had no sack truck and refused to move it 7m to back of house out of sight of the road. They claimed that they were too busy and had another ten deliveries to do. It would have taken them 2 minutes.

  6. ALED HUGHES (verified owner)

    Not the best assembly instructions,needs to be more detailed. The issue is that there are different parts from bench mounting and stand mounting.

  7. Rupert H. (verified owner)

    Great bit of kit; managed to split and stack about 1.5 tonnes of wood in a few hours, including some very knotty stuff.

  8. robert (verified owner)

    Excellent good quality log splitter, fast delivery, wish I had got one years ago

  9. Karl (verified owner)

    Fast delivery, looks to be a well made robust machine all the parts we there and easy to assemble. Would like the switch on the electric motor to in a different place you are leaning into the centre of machine when operating

  10. Rodney Tunley (verified owner)

    Delighted with my purchase.
    The safety cage needed a modification as I found the opening too small for large logs. A bit of work with an angle grinder solved the problem.
    I can send a photo of the modification if you are interested.

  11. guy marmont

    Purchased a manual log splitter from these guys arrived in double quick time and did exactly as they said very pleased had a small technical hitch (my issue didn,t read manual) phoned and that was resolved by technical dept (a person) straight away a proper firm would not hesitate to recommend

  12. Robin Smith (verified owner)

    So far, so good. Used once for an hour and did what it should

  13. rl cserjen (verified owner)

    Awesome- used my neighbours before buying this one. It is very very heavy so recommend the stand – not set up or using the safety cage (h&s gone mad!). During delivery slightly bent when trying to fit stand into one slot but I bashed it straight! My new toy so goodbye wedges and sledgehammer!

  14. Anonymous (verified owner)

  15. Mrs Anne Carroll (verified owner)

    the splitter deals effortlessly with quite large logs , the assembly instructions could do with being more informative but having said that we are very pleased with the splitter

  16. Hugh Fraser (verified owner)

    Excellent log splitter! I have used many petrol splitters and this is as good as any of them. There is nothing it won’t split. Genuinely very surprised but massively impressed. Very well made, fairly quick and plenty of power. Stand could do to be a bit higher and wheels a bit small. But definitely would recommend

  17. nicholas h. (verified owner)

    Great bit of kit splits oak a dream
    Needs bigger foot brakes as you cant flick them up with boots on should come with a cover to keep outside while not being used

  18. Ian Andrews (verified owner)

    Loved this purchase a very fast delivery time and great communication with the forestmaster team ! This is a fantastic log splitter ! I will def buy from you again ! 👍

  19. Terry K. (verified owner)

    Well worth the money. I have an old 4ton splitter that I have used for several years and had a pile of knotty bits that it wouldn’t touch, this splitter went through them easily, splitting logs will be simple from now on.

  20. Peter Shimmin (verified owner)

    Excellent product. Easy to assemble but needs two people. Easy to operate. Has had no trouble dealing with some fairly substantial logs. Should have bought one years ago. Very good customer service from the guys at Forest Master.

  21. Roy Finch (verified owner)

    Prompt delivery but unfortunately wheels are still missing

  22. Gordon N. (verified owner)

    Fantastic bit of kit , splits elm with ease .

  23. Chris Crow (verified owner)

    Take the statement “Pre-filled with Hydraulic Oil and Ready to Use” with a very big pinch of salt. It came in 3 boxes which you have to construct. There are no instructions as such. The book that comes with has 2 pages on constructing the stand, in basic diagrams with no real explanations, its all guess work and I got in wrong a couple of times and had to take it apart again. Also I built it on its side by my self and thought I was going to give myself a hernia when I stood it up. But very pleased when I finally got into place and tried it out. This is replacing a Clarke’s (Machine Mart) Log Buster 6 which gave up the ghost after 5 years sterling service. I’d had a few very knotted rounds which I had kept aside as the Log Buster did not deal with them well at all. The 8 ton Duocut went through like a hot knife through butter, so very pleased and will forgive Forest Master for their mis direction. But they do need to change the wording of their description so you know you’re getting three boxes of bits and they should write some decent instructions.

  24. Greig Duncan (verified owner)

    Delivery on time. Good Service

  25. GARY (verified owner)

    The 8 Ton 2 Speed Duocut Electric Log Splitter With Work Bench, Guard and Trolley FM16TW-TC is a fantastic bit of kit makes easy work of splitting even the hard wood logs wish I had invested in one years ago.

  26. Steven Mowat (verified owner)

  27. James cullen (verified owner)

    Excellent service and after care thankyou.

  28. Sue Sharp (verified owner)

    Excellent piece of kit! Has split some seriously difficult twisty bits of log!! .. fabulous investment 👍🪵

  29. David Vaughan (verified owner)

    I was unsure whether this would be worth the money but the first day of using it I knew it was worth every penny!

    Easy to set up and extremely sturdy, it hasn’t struggle with anything it’s come into contact with.

    Really happy with the purchase and glad I stretched the extra bit to get the bigger unit.

  30. Neil (verified owner)

    Instructions for stand could get much clearer. Machine itself seems straightforward on first use, got through quite a lot of timber in a couple of hours.

  31. Louis S. (verified owner)

    could not fault the service or the product only let down was the delivery firm who did not deliver on the day they said they would but still marked it as being delivered emailed Forest master and a lovely lady called Donna phoned me back to keep me updated on what was happening with the delivery firm, Tuffnells . Thank you Donna .

Q & A

Question
Will this run using a 7.5hp generator, max power 3.8kw, rated power 3.3kw? Jenny asked on February 23, 2022
Answer
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. Forest Master answered on February 24, 2022 store managerstore manager

Question
what maintenance is required for the 8 ton log splitter. re hydraulic oil? John Larking asked on September 20, 2021
Answer
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. forest answered on September 22, 2021 store managerstore manager
