Forest Master Compact Petrol Wood Chipper 6HP Garden Shredder

The FM6DD is a patented (GB2008049.5) compact petrol wood chipper for sale which is 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 access the drum for quick maintenance easily. 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 manufactures 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.

  1. Awesome chipper. Shame the kit doesn’t come with a 13mm, 10mm spanner for assembly and also Alan key to remove engine from the wooden plate. The chipper is crying out for a handle for manoeuvring. The chipper needs a decent spark plug like an NGK not a cheap cheerful version. Apart from this a great little chipper.

  5. Worked well for an hour or so but then constantly blocked the exit chute, spent the rest of the weekend without the chute on getting covered in chippings and making a mess

Q & A

Can I remove the protective plate covering the top of the shoot with two 50mm holes in it or is it welded in place? Richard Lampitt asked on September 20, 2023

Hi Richard, Yes, this plate can be removed. We advise that this is not removed unless outside of the UK/EU in compliance with UKCA/CE regulations. I hope this helps.

Wie groß ist die Einlassöffnung beim Forest Master? Kann ich da auch meine Küchenabfälle für den Kompost häckseln und auch verzweigtes Astmaterial. Könnte nirgens etwas darüber in Erfahrung bringen. Rüdiger asked on March 23, 2023

Der Eingang, der direkt zum Schneidwerk (Trichterrutsche) führt, ist 95 mm x 95 mm groß. Der obere Abschnitt ist mit einer CE-Platte ausgestattet, um die Schnittgröße auf 2 x 55-mm-Löcher mit einem Schlitz zu beschränken, der die beiden Löcher verbindet und einen Eingang für Seitentriebe und Äste usw. bietet. Die Sicherheitsplatte ist für die USA oder Kanada nicht erforderlich.

The entrance leading directly to the cutter (hopper chute) is 95mm x 95mm. The upper section has a CE plate fitted to restrict the cutting size to 2 x 55mm holes with a slot joining the two holes, providing an entrance for side shoots and branches, etc. The safety plate is not required for USA or Canada.

Wo genau mache ich einen Ölwechsel, kann ich den Hächsler dafür anheben, um das Öl zu entleeren? Ich kann nirgendwo eine Anleitung dazu finden. Christoph asked on March 17, 2023

Auf der Rückseite der Maschine befindet sich genau in der Mitte eine Ölablassschraube, unterhalb der Stelle, an der der Motor auf die Basis der Maschine trifft. Ein Bild dieser Schraube finden Sie hier:

There is an oil drain bolt on the back of the machine in the very centre, below where the engine meets the base of the machine. You can find an image of this bolt here:

Can you adjust the blade position/s so that a more finer chipping is obtained. I seem to remember reading, that you can do this on the website, but cannot now find the page. PETER NELSON asked on July 29, 2022

The blade gap can indeed be adjusted in order to enable finer chipping. You can find instructions within the product manual ( on page 18.

Can I run any garden waste through this chipper? Leaves and bits from herbaceous border for example. Rob Ward asked on June 25, 2022

Generally, the accepted ratio for the wood chipper is around 80/20. 80% of the material should be wood and this will facilitate the 20% of greenery. If you want to chip and shred more green material, then the FM6DD-MUL is the recommended machine as this will allow any ratio of wood to greenery.
