Forest Master FM16TW 8-ton electric hydraulic log splitter with stand and castor wheels
The Forest Master FM16TW electric hydraulic log splitter is a true heavy-duty machine, designed to handle even the toughest logs with ease. With a 2300-watt motor and 8 tons of force, this log splitter can tackle logs of up to 460mm* in length and 400mm* in diameter.
One of the standout features of the FM16D is its innovative DuoCut™ Blade, a patented technology that allows the log splitter to split logs from both ends, effectively doubling its splitting capacity. This means it can handle wood that other log splitters might struggle with, such as logs with knots or other imperfections. And if one blade encounters a knot while splitting, the other blade takes over, preventing the machine from jamming and saving you time and frustration.
In addition to its powerful motor and innovative DuoCut™ Blade, the FM16D also boasts a two-speed ram. This means that you can adjust the speed and force of the ram depending on the type of wood you’re splitting. For softer woods, you can use the faster speed with reduced force to split logs more efficiently. For harder woods, you can switch to the slower speed with more force to ensure that the logs are split all the way through. This two-speed ram feature allows you to customize the log splitter to suit your specific needs and ensures that you’re always getting the best performance possible.
But the FM16D isn’t just powerful – it’s also incredibly efficient. The convenient ramstop feature allows you to adjust the return distance of the DuoCut™ Blade to suit the size of the logs you’re splitting, increasing the efficiency of the log splitter. And with a forward stroke of just 5 seconds*, the FM16D can quickly and easily split logs of all sizes.
Safety is also a top priority with the FM16D, which features two-hand operation and a workbench and safety guard to protect the operator. And with a lifetime technical help service from Forest Master, you’ll have expert support whenever you need it.
In addition to its impressive performance and safety features, the Forest Master FM16D electric log splitter also comes with a stand that makes it easy to use and transport. The stand is 740mm* tall, which means that the bed of the log splitter is 860mm* off the ground, allowing you to work while standing up and reducing the need for leaning. The FM16D also comes equipped with castor wheels, which allow you to easily move the log splitter without lifting the front. Once you have the log splitter in place, you can simply lock the front wheels to keep it securely in place. This makes it easy to move the log splitter around your workshop or yard, so you can always have it close at hand when you need it.
Overall, the Forest Master FM16D electric log splitter is a heavy-duty machine that is perfect for anyone who needs to split large amounts of wood quickly and easily. With its powerful motor, innovative DuoCut™ Blade, convenient ramstop feature, and safety features, it’s the ultimate choice for tackling even the toughest logs.

Advantage of the DUOBLADE
The DUOBLADE allows the log to be split from both ends, this doubles the splitting capacity of the log splitter, meaning it can tackle wood that a normal 8 ton machine can’t do. When splitting the log sometimes the blade may encounter a knot, if this happens with the FM16TW the other blade takes over and splits the log, if a traditional log splitter does this, it could jam the machine, and you will have to free the log before continuing.
Advantage of the Ram Stop
When splitting smaller logs, the Ram Stop allows you to control the return distance of the DUOBLADE so that shorter logs can be split faster.
Advantage of the Castor Wheels
The added feature of castor wheels means that you can move the log splitter without lifting the front, once you have the log splitter in place you simply lock the front wheels.

This is a fantastic machine. Does what it says, splits large-diameter logs easily. The 2-speed control lever is very well designed and easily controlled. The adjustable ram position is also an excellent idea so that for smaller length logs, not so much energy or time is used waiting for it to travel on the bed.
I have never used a log splitter of any type before but am more than extremely satisfied with this product. No fiddling with petrol either. It appears British-made too which if so is a real bonus.

The only thing to say is WOW. Buy one and you won’t regret it fantastic log splitter very well built. And service from arrows was perfect.

Great service from Arrow UK. Log splitter delivered the next day on a pallet undamaged.
The log splitter stand was relatively easy to construct. Solidly built and heavy. Really did the job of splitting old beech, knotty pine and oak logs up to 12inches in diameter.
Excellent piece of kit.

Just finished a day’s log splitting with this model. Very pleased with the ease of use, more powerful than I thought it would be and very glad I bought it with the stand. Overall best bit of kit I have bought for a long time.

Excellent service from Arrows, splitter was dispatched same day and arrived next day.
Log splitter is very powerful and performs very well. It’s a very heavy piece of kit, even with the supplied stand and wheels and needs care when moving it about.
Overall I’m delighted with both service and machine.
Excellent machine. Dual speed helps split soft / smaller logs quickly and still cope with much bigger or tough ones on the slower setting. The locking ring helps limit travel so if your logs are a reasonably consistent length it saves travel time for shorter ones. The small casters can be a bit of a pain on rough concrete but they lock nicely and keep the machine steady while in use. You ideally need a helper to keep up with the rate at which you can split logs or you end up marooned in the midst of a pile of nicely split firewood.
