The FM8D-TC 5-ton Forest Master™ log splitter is the ideal product when using small to medium wood burners. Unlike other small log splitters which only have a 1500 watt motor and produce 4 ton of force, our FM8 has a 2200 watt motor and produces 5 ton of force. It is also fitted with a stronger moving carriage that holds the pusher block so that it can split harder wood. It is capable of cutting logs up to 370mm in length and 300mm in diameter. To comply with the latest safety regulations it has button and lever operation and is fitted with a tray and safety cage. It is supplied filled with hydraulic oil, ready for use out of the box.
It can also be fitted with our trademarked DuocutTM blade (sold separately) that increases the efficiency of splitting and handles knotty wood more easily. With the DuocutTM blade fitted you can cut logs up to a maximum length of 300mm.
The brand new 2019 edition FM8 is a heavy-duty wood splitter that comes with a workbench and guard to comply with all new safety regulations. Unlike the safety cages used by other brands, our guard has sides with no openings so that split logs cannot catch in an opening and cause damage. Our guard also accommodates logs up to 300mm* in diameter, the safety cages used on other brands only permit up to 250mm diameter.
The FM8D-TC can also be mounted on either our stand or our trolley;
Model FM8T-TC comes with our stand which uses the rear wheels from the log splitter and has a simple foot at the front.
Model FM8TW-TC comes with our trolley which has lockable castors on the front as well as using the rear wheels from the log splitter.
