Forest Master FM5D 5 ton electric hydraulic log splitter

Forest Master FM5D electric log splitter, provided by the leading UK brand for forestry equipment, is the perfect machine if you have a small wood burner or are planning on splitting short log lengths. The FM5D is equipped with a 2200 watt motor which helps the machine reach 5 tons of force with ease. The FM5D is also a fast log splitter, the total travel time is less than 9 seconds*, meaning splitting logs has never been faster from a hydraulic log splitter.

This log splitter is perfect for dealing with soft and/or green wood, if you are considering splitting hard or knotty wood, then please look at the FM10 series log splitters.

Featuring two hand operation and supplied with the workbench and safety guard, using a log splitter has never been safer, once attached the safety guard allows you to split logs and contain them, this prevents any debris leaving the cage, in turn greatly reducing the risk of injury. The safety guard is also different from other designs, by removing the holes on the sides, the possibility of a log damaging the guard is greatly reduced. This also means that the log splitter meets the latest safety standards.

Forest Master offer a life-time technical help service, should you need advice, with your Forest Master log splitter, you can call them or email them at no cost.

    Bought this to split about 4 ton of logs from a massive 100 yr old Ash tree we took down.Split almost everything but the worst knottiest pieces but it even managed to bust them apart just needed severing with the axe.Definitely worth the money.Only slight moan is the work table that comes with it could be a bit stiffer but is OK as is.
