Forest Master Compact Electric Start Petrol Wood Chipper 6HP

The FM6DD (GB2008049.5) compact petrol wood chipper 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.

This model is 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. If you wish to purchase a pull-start-only edition – view our FM6DD wood chipper.

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. Assembly is a bit tricky – the problem I had is that the bolts going throught the battery hopper, wheel frame and through to the engine mount are just a touch too short if using the flat and spring washer to secure everything – an extra 5mm in length would be better. It took about an hour to assemble from box to ‘ready for use’.

  2. Easy to put together, filled with oil and fuel started straight off on key chipped well, confusing though with oil level put in right amount but nothing came out when bolt taken out of cutter block as told in booklet

  3. Arrived boxed, some building required, which was very straight forward. That said I read reviews to be careful as the battery compartment has to be installed at the same time as bolting the engine on the frame.
    That snippet of information is key and should be in bold on the instructions.
    The pack of fixings looked like they had been salvaged as they were a bit of a mixed bag but it went together fine and works well.
    Older wood is ok, bushy branches are just ok, thinner longer branches are best and feed very well.
    So far so good after a days work.

Q & A

Hi Do these machines need to be cooled down often? Obviously depends on size of things going and for how long but I don’t want a machine that has to cool down every 20 minutes. Thanks Steve asked on March 23, 2022

The chipper features an air-cooled engine, as long as it's not in a confined space it is able to run all day long. However, I would note that if you need to refill with petrol, you will need to wait for the engine to cool down before doing so.
