Heavy-Duty Electric Log Splitter (7-Ton) DuoCutTM with Trolley, Work Bench & Guard
The FM10TW-7 is a powerful 7-ton electric log splitter suitable for heavy-duty domestic use. It has a ram pressure of 500 bar* to handle hard woods such as oak and is fitted with our new trolley stand that has lockable castors on the front to make it easily manoeuvrable.
To handle the higher pressure and harder wood, the FM10TW-7-TC has a number of upgrades including a reinforced heavy-duty fixed blade and a larger cylinder diameter than 5 ton models.
The FM10TW-7-TC comes with our trademarked DuocutTM blade, enabling it to split logs more efficiently than log splitters fitted with a traditional pusher and by being able to split from either end to cope with knotty wood. In addition, it is fitted with a ramstop that reduces the return distance and time when splitting shorter logs.
The latest model of the FM10TW-7-TC log splitter is fitted with a workbench and guard that are compliant with safety regulations. Unlike the cages fitted by other manufacturers, our guard has no holes in the side panels to ensure logs can’t get caught and damage the guard. It also allows a greater log diameter than other manufacturers, our guard allows 400mm* diameter whereas other manufacturers only allow 250mm.
- 7 ton of force for splitting harder woods
- Duocut blade for more efficient log splitting
- Workbench and guard have smooth sides so logs can’t get caught
- Guard allows a maximum log diameter of 400mm*
- Ramstop to reduce the time taken to split short logs
- Castor stand for ease of moving
- Filled with hydraulic oil ready to use out of the box

I’ve assembled the trolley and guard but haven’t used the splitter yet. The guard was very awkward to fit and some holes didn’t line up. But it looks good so far. Clear instructions
Jill Rees (verified owner) –
Absolutely awesome! It cuts through my biggest logs with ease. It is pricier than the others I looked at, but worth every extra penny, I highly recommend this piece of equipment.
Paul Keys (verified owner) –
Can’t fault it. It’s handled everything I’ve chucked at it with ease, wet logs, dry logs knotty logs, the lot. Highly recommended.

Just received 7t splitter looks and feels quality
Tried it out on a modest sized knotty log
Like a knife through butter

Excellent service – item delivered with a faulty front leg and was replaced the very next day, The installation instructions for stand are not all that clear and no instruction of how castors to be attached to the foot of stand. Other than that a very good service.
Geoff M. (verified owner) –
Delivery excellent. Assembling the mobile stand not so good. At least 6 of the required bolts were missing. Also have miscellaneous small parts left over – hope they are not vital! Had to buy M8 and M10 bolts but I think the splitter should be safe to use. It has taken me about 8 hours to assemble the trolley
MARK moston (verified owner) –
The operating handle item 14 was slightly bent in transit
Would it be possible to send out another one
Also when the unit is released the blade doesn’t retract all the way back which is awkward on bigger logs i have to manually push it back etc
The trolley was a bit awkward to put together definitely requires 2 people but once sorted seems quite sturdy

The delivery company leaves a lot to be desired! They delivered it to completely the wrong address, miles from my house. The people at the address it was delivered to contacted me to say they had my delivery and that had asked for it to be collected… it was not! We ended up driving to collect it ourselves.
However, the log splitter itself is fabulous. It works so well. I’m pleased I chose this model as its easily split seasoned wood. 5*
David (verified owner) –
I’ve had this splitter less than a week so can’t really comment on durability yet but the splitter itself seems well engineered. Its solidly built and very heavy. Assembly of the stand and workbench took me (quite mechanically experienced with plenty of different spanners) about 2 hours. It could have been a lot easier if the stand had come with castors attached as indicated in the instructions. Mine were in a separate bag with no guidance on placement of various washers etc. It’s possible to fit the retaining nuts wrong way round and this whole step took me about 40 minutes. The workbench is fiddly to fit but quite solid once done.
The instructions included are detailed and written in clear English. There’s a lot to read if you don’t want to miss something important like opening the bleed screw and I would have appreciated a step by step operating guide which it doesn’t have. But they have clearly been written by someone who understands the machine and whose first language is English.
I’ve split a few trailers full of logs so far. The splitter seems very powerful and once assembled is very simple to use. Some woods like beech and ash split very easily and straight. We had a lime tree fall in recent storms and it copes less well with that because the wood is softer and more fibrous. If there’s a knotty bit you can end up with a bit of a mashup with pieces of wood joined by strands of the grain. But that’s probably going to happen with any splitter. Those pieces need finishing with an axe.
Overall I’m very satisfied.
Forestmaster used Tufnells for delivery and they were dreadful but that’s another story!
Colin Halstead (verified owner) –
Delivered next working day as stated on website.
Used for a couple of hours and so far very
impressed.The stand is definitely worth getting as it makes using and moving the log splitter much easier.
This is a solid bit of kit so you may need
help when assembling the stand.
You will need Allen key and small spanner
For heavy domestic use this splitter is excellent.
Will (verified owner) –
Looks a strong machine, but not used for very much yet.
Not keen on the wheels, would be better to have blow up tyres at least on the bigger wheel end , something more robust on the other end. Neither of these things make he machine work better but would aid moving it.

Simple order process, arrived the following day and reasonable price. Stable machine that does the job a treat.

Assembly instructions a little confusing. Otherwise very happy with purchase . Only used it once. so far so good.
Jon Rundle (verified owner) –
Very impressed with this log splitter, sturdy and robust. Took a couple of hours to assemble the workbench that came with it because of the fiddly Allen keys but won’t have to do that again. Splits big logs with ease and the workbench means I’m not constantly bending down and picking up logs that need splitting again.

Splitter great bit of kit. Was but worried as packaging damp and ripped and thought might be product damage but ok. Some of instructions could definitely be clearer especially relating to tools required

Excellent service, haven’t time to try it yet but on assembling it looks very substantial, thank you.
David H. (verified owner) –
I am impressed with the log splitter so far. I bought it after selling my tractor with a log splitter attached as I wasn’t using it enough. This splitter fills the gap that was left and has been in use a fair amount since it arrived as a mature tree came down in a recent storm. Being of an age where bending down is not as easy as it used to be I find the work bench very useful but only use a side section of the guard.
My only disappointment is that I looked at the Website three days after I bought it and the price had dropped by over £60 !!
Jack K. (verified owner) –
Log splitter looks very good and works well, only problem I had was when i opened the box to find that the plug wires had a bit damage with one bare wire hanging out.

The log splitter arrived next day, the trolley was pretty straight forward to erect, and we put the splitter to immediate use. It split wet logs up to at least 10 inch diameter without the slightest problem, it is one of the few things I have ever bought that actually performs better than expected. I should have bought one years ago.

Les (verified owner) –
Inadequate packaging and/or careless transport of the splitter itself. The mains plug had sheared off pins and the switch box was majorly cracked. Credit where it’s due though they responded almost immediately to an email and arranged a replacement due to arrive today and a collection of the old one. Mistakes happen, it’s how you correct them that matters and that aspect feels good though repacking is a hassle. Obviously can’t comment on operation of product yet.
Al (verified owner) –
This log splitter is really exceeding my expectations. It’s a fantastic, well built and very capable machine. I had a minor problem which the technical guys at FM responded to very quickly and everything is now working perfectly. I was initially considering a kinetic splitter but am glad I eventually chose hydraulic. It’s very safe and controllable. I was initially concerned that the weight might be an issue, but it isn’t. The wheels and castors make it very manoeverable. I just wish I’d got one years ago instead of struggling with an axe.
Jo (verified owner) –
Great machine! It took a while to put it together with the trolley and the guard but well worth having both. It is a solid machine and I was very impressed and relieved that it works so well. It will save me days of back breaking work trying to chop the hundreds of logs I have accumulated for my new log burner. Most satisfying!!! Only comment is it wasn’t clear that one of the accompanying packets with handles and knobs included the one for the Ram stop.

I never give 5 as nothing is perfect. The product is excellent and does the job better than I had dared hope. It arrived on the day requested and a lovely strong young lad lifted it into position. Easy to unpack and set up and operating is a doddle. Good value. Special thanks to Donna in Customer Relations who sorted out a delivery problem with minimum fuss.

After payment and promptly receiving the item the next day ( very impressed) things have somewhat gone downhill. I ordered the FM10TW-7-TC log splitter only to find that 2 Allen Head bolts & 2 split pins needed for assembly were missing but it doesn’t stop there as I was also supplied with the incorrect stand having ordered the trolley stand with front wheels
I received instead the stand with the front base plate that has no front wheels.
Called Forest Master (technical department) to inform them of these errors at 11.55am on the 19/05/22 giving them plenty of time to get the parts out and was assured the parts needed along with the stand wheels would be sent out that very same day and I would receive them the next day.
It is now the 21st two days latter and no parts.
Also some of the welds to the stand are abysmal porosity,untidy beads,spatter and stray arc marks (photographs can be supplied) ,do you not have a QA department.
That being said I cannot comment on the actual machine in operation due to the said missing items.

Works a treat and makes light work of splitting logs… brought it after watching my father in law use his and he’s 70+ !
Well built and seems more than powerful enough for my needs 👍🏻
Robin A. (verified owner) –
Though this piece of equipment does what it says on the can, there is some doubt, in my mind, as to the build quality control during manufacture. Specifically the carrier trolley, which I needed to apply more appropriate fixings to and modify tools in order to build the trolley successfully and safely. Some of the welds seem to be a bit suspect also. It’s amazing what a coat of paint will cover.
Additionally, I would recommend that assembly instructions are reviewed and modified, in order to accommodate the skills of less able end users.
Overall I am generally satisfied with the item which I have purchased, as it seems to perform as required. However, though minor issue in themselves, I would not expect such issues to have arisen having paid a considerable amount of money for my purchase.

The log splitter arrived in 3 parts. The van driver initially found two in the crowded van and the third was delivered later. I did contact the delivery firm to confirm the part had been located.
The machine is heavy and solidly constructed but I was however able to fit its stand single handed. Adequate instructions and all parts required were provided. Bear in mind spanners, Allen keys and a circlip remover (ideally) are required. Split pins are provided to replace the wheel retainer circlips (optional) when fitting to the stand. The machine is stable on its stand which provides a good working height. The width of the rear stand legs are wide and may not directly pass through some shed doors.
I have tested the machine and it easily split the hawthorn logs tried. I have not fit the workbench and guards which make the machine more bulky but beware falling split logs. The ability to restrict travel on the splitter is welcome for shorter logs. Well pleased with my purchase.

Instructions were straight forward and easy to follow you will need a selection of tools to assemble took about 1. 1/2 hours

Seems a very substantial bit of kit. The stand took quite some time to build and fit but the instructions were good. Haven’t built or fitted the table and guard yet as we have been happy using it without, and it would make the splitter much heavier to manoeuvre. Was delivered the next day and despite big stickers on the box saying ‘this way up’ it was left in my porch upside down! Does not seem to have been a problem and am pleased I chose Forest Master.
