Why should all wood chippers be direct drive?
Most other wood chippers are reliant on a drive belt that is connected to the belt. Why is this a problem? Well, it reduces the lifespan of the machine. What’s the point in investing in a machine to have it breakdown! Moreover, a direct drive enables you to future proof yourself and worry no more!
Our experts here at Forest Master conduct hours of research. Their findings suggest that the belt is the part of the machine most likely to give out. Furthermore, this means that by removing the belt, we remove the need for regular services, maintenance and/or replacements. No belt, no problems, no headaches – just easy chipping.
FM6DD proves that size (or weight) really doesn’t matter
If you’re like us, you want something easy, lightweight, and portable. But you want the power to match. Well, the FM6DD wood chipper’s power ratio is unrivalled. Take the Bosch AXT 25 for example, it has a similar power output but weighs twice as much. Yes, it’s a whopping 75kg compared to the Forest Master’s slender 38kg. Furthermore, this allows you to pack up and go to the job and then easily stack up and store when finished. No more stressing over the size of the garden gate or whether your shed is big enough – Forest Master’s got you covered.
