Forest Master Compact Petrol Wood Chipper 6HP Garden Shredder – Outlet Grade 1
This product is an ex-demo model which means it has been previously used as part of demonstrations. The item may arrive with signs of use, marks or scratches to the paintwork and the packaging may be damaged.
The FM6DD is a patent-pending (GB2008049.5) compact petrol wood chipper capable of chipping wood up to 50mm (2 inches) in diameter. The FM6DD’s powerful 6hp LCT engine can rotate the chipper drum at a maximum of 3600rpm. 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 or chains that you have to keep adjusting.
We have two versions of the FM6DD available, a standard version that features a pull start and an upgraded Electric Start version for those who don’t want to deal with the hassle of a pull start. The electric start version also includes a backup pull start.
The FM6DD 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 easily access the drum for quick maintenance. The end of the FM6DD’s discharge chute can be angled to direct the chips.
The FM6DD is powered by the latest LCT Maxx Series 208cc 4 Stroke engine. LCT are a US-owned company that manufacture 4 stroke engines that are used in a wide variety of outdoor power equipment.
The powerful and compact wood chipper only requires minimal maintenance, you are only required to check the oil level and the cutting blades of the chipper, both of which can be easily replaced or refilled in just a few short moments.
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 the USA or Canada.

Excellent service, originally ordered an ex demo unit and there were some issues during delivery, no questions asked and a brand new one delivered the next day. Wasn’t expecting much from it for the money, if I’m honest but all of the other reviews were right, fantastic bit of kit, first day I used it for around 6 hours and it didn’t miss a beat. Only issue is the same as a few others have, it could do with a handle for moving it around but realistically, you get it out, use it and then put it away. It’s just a bit awkward to move about on our meadow. All in all, cracking purchase.

much better than expected, although a bit small it is more than capable of doing the job
