The FM4DDE is a patented GB2008049.5 compact electric wood chipper capable of chipping wood up to 50mm (2 inches) in diameter. The FM4DDE’s 4hp 2800 watt electric motor can rotate the chipper drum at a maximum of 2800 rpm. This enables it to easily chip all kinds of freshly cut wood from hard to soft. It is direct drive for better performance and this also means that there are no belts that you have to keep adjusting. Although it is a powerful 2800 watt electric motor, it still runs off standard 240v household mains electricity. The UK model of the wood chipper is fitted with a UK 3 pin plug and the EU model arrives fitted with an EU Plug.

The FM4DDE has twin reversible blades so that when one side becomes worn from use the blades can simply be turned around to use the second side. This saves the need for constant resharpening and effectively doubles the life of the blades. The lightweight and compact size of the chipper enables it to be extremely manoeuvrable and easy to store. Both the feed hopper and the discharge chute have a hinged chute design, enabling the user to easily access the drum for quick maintenance. The end of the FM4DDE’s discharge chute can be angled to direct the chips.

The entrance leading directly to the cutter (hopper chute) is 95mm x 95mm. The upper section has a CE plate fitted. This safety plate it not required for USA or Canada.

    This is a really good quality chipper. If you want a powerful electric chipper, this FM4DDE model is probably one of the best you can buy, certainly the best I could find.
    It meets my needs perfectly, I have reasonable (medium?) sized garden, about a third of an acre, with lots of rhododendrons which grow fast and need regular cutting back. My previous chipper, admittedly second hand, was a standard £130 garden chipper. This was much noisier than this model, and kept jamming, and eventually broke. Since then I have been letting the branches dry and burning them. However, I live in an urban area and although the neighbours are great about it, it is a little antisocial to be burning them. Much better to chip them and use the chippings as mulch on the flower beds. I was looking for an electric model, because I don’t want the hassle of maintaining a petrol engine. However, I wanted the most powerful model that works off a standard 13A socket. This was the only one I could find that fits that requirement. The branches I need to chip are mostly less than 30mm, but I wanted a machine that copes with more than this, to reduce the amount of jamming, which is a huge time waster and extends the length of the job. The maximum branch size on this machine of 50mm is not a significant limitation, as any more than that I would not chip, but use for firewood.  Assembling the 4 parts of the chipper was straightforward just needing an adjustable spanner.  Although it is a lot more powerful that my last model, it takes up about the same size, i.e. really compact. Whilst assembling I could see the parts are really solid and well engineered to a high quality. Although quite heavy, due to the power of the motor, the wheels make it very easy to move around. That said, it is no heavier than my previous model. It is relatively easy to unscrew the hopper and exit chute for clearing any jams. Although this model is not cheap, at over £400 it is three times the price of standard garden chippers, you are getting something completely different – a well engineered, robust and higher capacity chipper that is much less likely to keep jamming, and is likely to last a good deal longer. For what you get I think it is good value. My experience is it’s always worth going for the best quality you can afford where garden machinery is concerned.
    Customer service really helpful too.
