The FM16TW-TC Electric Log Splitter can produce up to a massive 8 tons in splitting force. It has a two-speed ram for soft or hardwood. If you are splitting softwood then 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 FM16TW-TC is also equipped 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.

The brand new 2019 edition FM16TW-TC log splitter comes with a workbench and guard to comply with all new safety regulations. Unlike other manufacturers safety cages, our guard has solid sides with no openings so that split logs cannot catch in an opening and cause damage. It also accommodates larger logs than other manufacturers, our guard accommodates up to 400mm* diameter whereas other safety cages only allow 250mm diameter.

The FM16TW-TC also comes with an adjustable height trolley stand for ease of moving around workshops and patios. The trolley stand gives three alternative bed heights of 370mm, 470mm and 820mm. Ram-stop for reducing cycle time with short logs. The FM16tw comes filled with hydraulic oil ready for use.

The heavy-duty FM16TW-TC was designed for long-lasting use and is currently the largest available electric log splitter by Forest Master.

  1. Richard (verified owner)

    Excellent service, prompt delivery. Straightforward assembly. The machine looks well designed and made, and works very well so far, easy and safe to use. Very pleased overall. The large wheels could be a bit more robust and the hub caps seem unnecessary and don’t fit very well, otherwise excellent.

  2. Matthew Holloway (verified owner)

    This is great kit, quickly delivered and FM offer good phone support if you have any queries. It has dealt with anything we have thrown at it so far including some very knotty oak blocks.

  3. Stefano P. (verified owner)

    Great unit, but arrived with a number of M8 bolts missing. Operation is great though, just note you’ll need two people to unpack and set it up.

  4. Peter M. (verified owner)

    I’ve used
    ThIs
    Machine for a
    Couple of hours & found it to be
    Faultless.

  5. Kevin D. (verified owner)

    Delivered promptly. Not opened yet. Delivery drivers (Tufnells?) had no sack truck and refused to move it 7m to back of house out of sight of the road. They claimed that they were too busy and had another ten deliveries to do. It would have taken them 2 minutes.

  6. ALED HUGHES (verified owner)

    Not the best assembly instructions,needs to be more detailed. The issue is that there are different parts from bench mounting and stand mounting.

  7. Rupert H. (verified owner)

    Great bit of kit; managed to split and stack about 1.5 tonnes of wood in a few hours, including some very knotty stuff.

  8. robert (verified owner)

    Excellent good quality log splitter, fast delivery, wish I had got one years ago

  9. Karl (verified owner)

    Fast delivery, looks to be a well made robust machine all the parts we there and easy to assemble. Would like the switch on the electric motor to in a different place you are leaning into the centre of machine when operating

  10. Rodney Tunley (verified owner)

    Delighted with my purchase.
    The safety cage needed a modification as I found the opening too small for large logs. A bit of work with an angle grinder solved the problem.
    I can send a photo of the modification if you are interested.

Q & A

Question
what maintenance is required for the 8 ton log splitter. re hydraulic oil? John Larking asked on September 20, 2021
Answer
The only maintenance required for the log splitter is to top up the hydraulic fluid an occasionally clean the log splitter bed. The log splitter arrives pre-filled with hydraulic fluid and will typically last around 150 hours before you need to think about refilling. forest answered on September 22, 2021 store managerstore manager
