Powerful 2-Speed Electric Log Splitter (8-Ton) with Work Bench & Guard

The 2016 updated FM16D log splitter can produce up to a massive 8 tons in splitting force. It has a two-speed ram for soft or hardwood. When splitting softwood, pushing the operating lever halfway gives you the fastest speed with reduced force. When splitting hardwood, pushing the operating lever all the way down gives you the full 8 tons force at a slower speed. The FM16 log splitter is heavy duty in every way.  The heavy-duty nature of the log splitter allows it to complete tasks in which other competitor brands of log splitters can not. An example of this is that with competitor log splitters, the ram must stop 150mm short of the blade as it does not have the heavy-duty capability to split to the end. The FM16 make it easy to split logs the entire way and remove the physical aspect of having to rip logs apart at the end of the splitting process.

The FM16D is fitted with our trademarked DuocutTM blade that increases the efficiency of splitting and makes the log splitter much better at handling knotty wood than single blade splitters. It also comes with a Ram-stop for reducing cycle time with short logs.

The heavy-duty FM16D was designed for long-lasting use and can handle logs up to 460mm in length and 400mm in diameter.

It comes filled with hydraulic oil ready for use.

The newest edition FM16TW log splitter comes with a workbench and guard to comply with all new safety regulations. Unlike the safety cages fitted by other manufacturers, our guard has sides with no openings so that split logs cannot catch in an opening and cause damage. Our guard will also accommodate logs up to 400mm* diameter whereas other manufacturers can only handle 250mm diameter.

  1. Alan A. (verified owner)

    Excellent build quality and performance. Tried it out on a large ash log with knots that had defied the axe – worked a treat.
    First class delivery service.
    Very helpful when I contacted re buying a stand as an afterthought – which also arrived within 24 hours.
    All in all, a first rate product from an exemplary British company.

  2. Peter Davison (verified owner)

    Build quality of this product/machine is very good, couldn’t fault Forest Master from my initial enquiry, to ordering and the prompt delivery I received, I would certainly recommend to friends and family.

    I bought the 8 ton 2-speed electric log splitter – and it is a superb piece of kit. It is very well thought out, well made, and made short, effortless work of 4 tons of very large knotty and twisted beech when I put it to work straight out of the box. The two speed control is brilliant, as you can flick between speeds instantly, depending on the force required, and the adjustable home position stop is a brilliant time saver that is quickly adjusted on the fly.
    Before committing to my purchase, the customer service over the phone was very good; the guy was knowledgeable and helpful, and answered a long list of picky questions that I had. Once ordered, the product was at my door in under 24hrs (well, it would have been if our road had not been unexpectedly closed.)
    However… whilst the product itself is truly excellent and I can recommend it thoroughly, you need to be prepared for the absolutely shambolic packing and logistics team at Forest Master. Without going into details (which would be long and tedious), there was stuff missing, stuff damaged in shipping, and it is still not all resolved now, over a month later. The customer services were generally quick to respond each time and were polite and helpful, but they have seriously got their work cut out to keep up with their packing and shipping crew who are really letting the side down for the company. But brave it out – the product is still worth it.

    What a fantastic piece of UK built kit. Delivery was prompt and service polite.
    I split a very large pile of large oak logs in double quick time, even knotty ones.

  8. Nigel Adams (verified owner)

    A great machine. My second actually, which speaks volumes. The service from Forest Master is as good as it was 7 years ago.

    What a brilliant piece of kit. Well made, really sturdy and I’m glad I added the stand to increase the working height.
