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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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.

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!

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
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

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 .

Highly recommended service and product.
Timothy Barber (verified owner) –
Very prompt service and delivery. The delivery man was very helpful in getting the splitter to where it was needed on my premises. A well made robust splitter. The table around the splitter prevents wood from falling on to the floor which hence avoids frequently having to pick things up.
The only negative comment is with the lack of clarity with the instructions for constructing the stand. A simple job but which tube and which way round?

Instructions for assembly could be a bit better but the product itself appears to be very robust and well made. Only used it to test so far and it split 6` silver birch easily
So far very impressive.
Delivery was quick but the delivery driver was unable to assist move the heavy box after dropping it off at the pavement.
All in all very happy with Forest Master

janette ireland (verified owner) –
Absolutely brilliant, best fun a 69 yr old lady has had since the chainsaw ! I use it without the stand so far, as the logs I am splitting first are too heavy to lift. It copes with everything. Love the 2 stage handle, fast or slow and powerful. It did need 2 of us to lift into place, I use inside a shed. Splits old wood, massive tree slices & easy on the new pine trees. The stop to reduce the width does come undone occasionally, so screw up tight.

Fab bit of kit. Effort less, No sweat cleaving hundreds of logs compared to swinging an axe.
Robert Halhead (verified owner) –
Good product. Delivery was troublesome. Assembly instructions need improvement. Latter look like they’ve been written by someone very familiar with the splitter (though the experience wasn’t helped by the delivery problems – soaked packaging meant an important pack of fasteners were left on a gravel track…didn’t find them for a few days!). The machine is great…just make the instructions better folks…get someone who doesn’t know the product to put one together (watch and listen)…..then brilliant

Nick H. (verified owner) –
The assembly of the castors is terrible, guess work and a bad design. Apart from that seems good, not yet used the machine but seems slow, design of stop very poor, just catches the casting it stops against. Poor instructions. I think probably basically a good product spoiled by a lack of attention to detail and obstructions, a hapeth worth of tar !
Michael B. (verified owner) –
Not assemled yet, hence intermediate rating. After removing all the packaging and reading the manual. ( which is clearly written in plain English) I was disappointed to find that the assembly instructions were sparse in the extreme and will try again when I have more time to figure it all out. I looked on UTube but there is nothing there on assembly.
