The FM4DDE is a patented GB2008049.5 compact electric wood chipper capable of chipping wood up to 50mm (2 inches) in diameter. The FM4DDE’s 4hp 2800-watt electric motor can rotate the chipper drum at a maximum of 2800 rpm. This enables it to easily chip all kinds of freshly cut wood from hard to soft. It is a direct drive for better performance and this also means that there are no belts that you have to keep adjusting. Although it is a powerful 2800-watt electric motor, it still runs off standard 240v household mains electricity. The UK model of the wood chipper is fitted with a UK 3-pin plug and the EU model arrives fitted with an EU Plug.

The FM4DDE has twin reversible blades so that when one side becomes worn from use the blades can simply be turned around to use the second side. This saves the need for constant resharpening and effectively doubles the life of the blades. The lightweight and compact size of the chipper enables it to be extremely manoeuvrable and easy to store. Both the feed hopper and the discharge chute have a hinged chute design, enabling the user to access the drum for quick maintenance easily. The end of the FM4DDE’s discharge chute can be angled to direct the chips.

The entrance leading directly to the cutter (hopper chute) is 95mm x 95mm. The upper section has a CE plate fitted. This safety plate is not required for USA or Canada.

  1. Really great machine did get clogged a few times as we had rain the night before but it’s quite easy to clear, it helped me to have a garden blower to clear debris but it’s not necessary just made it easier for myself. Small tip.

  2. Good at fresh stick to the declared diametert but and little limited because there is no option to move the chute so as to convert to use as a mulcher when it pretty much looks like the same basic motor and stand. Also there should be “wheelbarrow” handles so you can move it about easily – as a fixtrue, not an optional extra

  3. Works well so far. Wheel caps are a bit tricky to get on.

  5. Easily assembled with one exception of a bolt damaged in transit but was easily replaced. The chipper works well on green fresh wood that has any side branches trimmed but does not like older dry branches of more than 30mm. I use a mini chain saw to prepare the wood and the through put is great. Any jams or blockages are easily cleared and 10mm spanner kept in the pocket is essential. I have been using it for the past three days clearing Leylandiy and pine and am very impressed with this bit of kit.

Pourquoi il ne faut pas utiliser de rallonge électrique si le câble est si court ? Why shouldn't an extension cord be used if the cable is so short? Marc Chevré asked on November 15, 2022

English --
On average, we lose 1 volt of power for every meter of cable. So if you were to extend over 30 meters, then you’re losing 30 volts of power. When a motor is designed for 230/240 volts, you are overloading the motor by running it with less than 220 volts.

In the past, customers have been known to run at 200 volts with no issues, but over time this can cause issues with the motor causing them to fail.

Standard household mains will typically run at around 230v/240v, but it’s recommended that you check this as it’s quite possible that you’re running at a lower level.

The extension cable you use will also have to be 2.5 cable and be used fully unwound.

Français --
En moyenne, nous perdons 1 volt de puissance pour chaque mètre de câble. Donc, si vous deviez vous étendre sur 30 mètres, vous perdez 30 volts de puissance. Lorsqu'un moteur est conçu pour 230/240 volts, vous surchargez le moteur en le faisant fonctionner avec moins de 220 volts.

Dans le passé, les clients étaient connus pour fonctionner à 200 volts sans problème, mais au fil du temps, cela peut entraîner des problèmes avec le moteur et les faire tomber en panne.

Le secteur domestique standard fonctionnera généralement à environ 230v/240v, mais il est recommandé de vérifier cela car il est tout à fait possible que vous fonctionniez à un niveau inférieur.

Le câble d'extension que vous utilisez devra également être un câble de 2,5 et être utilisé entièrement déroulé.
