The FM8TW-TC 5-ton Forest Master log splitter is the ideal product for beginners or 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 FM8TW 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.
The FM8TW-TC comes filled with hydraulic oil ready for use.
It can also be fitted with our DuoCut bladeTM (sold separately) that increases the efficiency of splitting and handles knotty wood more easily. With the Duocut blade fitted you can cut logs up to a maximum length of 300mm.
The brand new 2019 edition FM8TW-TC is a heavy-duty log splitter that comes with a workbench and guard to comply with all new safety regulations. Unlike the safety cages used by other manufacturers, our guard has sides with no openings so that split logs cannot catch in an opening and cause damage. Our guard also allows you to split logs up to 300mm* diameter, other manufacturers cages only allow 250mm diameter.
The FM8TW-TC comes with our latest trolley stand which uses the rear wheels from the log splitter and has locking castors at the front. This makes it much easier to move around a workshop etc.
