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. Very happy with chipper, only used it once so far, but it will be in use again soon! It’s mobile, starts at the turn of a key & for what it’s doing, relatively quiet. I’m pleased we purchased the ready assembled chipper!

  2. I’ve used the chipper for about 5 hours now and I’m pleased that I bought it however it is quite difficult to move. I think the handle which is an accessory should be included in the price. All in all an excellent machine.

  3. I’ve used the machine three times since purchase. It is performing well. Assembly was pretty straightforward. I’m more than happy with my purchase.

  4. I bought this to tackle a number of conifer trees and large bushes that had become overgrown. It works really well. If you are shredding a larger branch then it has to be fed into the machine very carefully or the engine stalls. That being said it coped well with what I threw at it (large branches and all) and I am pleased with the purchase. The only reason for the 4 and not 5 star review was for a small matter of the waste chute that continually blocked from the foliage of the conifers. The sap stuck to the sides of the chute and encouraged the waste to do likewise. I don’t suppose the design team can do much about that though. As I said, it is a great piece of kit that is easily transportable and very powerful for its size. It was also very easy to put together and fired up first time. This has saved me numerous trips to the local tip and has produced a large amount of free mulch for the garden.

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.
