£249.95

Description

The FM5 5-ton electric log splitter is a fast, lightweight and compact log splitter that can split logs up to 300mm in length. This is an ideal machine to split soft or green wood.

The FM5 is one of the fastest small log splitters with a cycle time of only 9 seconds.

This machine has a 5-ton splitting force with a 2200W motor meaning that it can easily split logs for small to medium wood burners. With its compact size the weight of the machine is only 32Kg, meaning that it can be easily transported. In order to comply with the latest safety regulations, the FM5 is operated by simultaneously using a push button and lever.

Excellent machine which takes a lot of the effort out of splitting logs
Great value and the only criticism, if you would even call it that, is that the logs must be under 12" or 30cm which required me to halve a few that I had already chainsawed. However, in future I will make sure the logs are under that length. Filled my log store up in no time at all. I will also be able to restock through the winter months really easily and without the amount of effort that was needed with my axe. Despite having a top quality Fiskars axe, some of my logs were impossible to split with an axe so the FM5 has easily taken care of those. You must wear safety eye goggles (or sunglasses) as the odd slinter will fly off. Highly recommended Read more

This wood slitter is ok for only small sizes of logs but not powerfill enough for heavy duty logs.
This wood slitter is very handy to own when it comes to breaking up small wood into kinderlin however, But unfortunately this wood splinter wasn't powerful enough to break up my larger logs let alone fit in between the 12 inches length of the machine which would be the distance between the axe and the push bar. A lot of my logs were far to long in order to fit into the wood slitter, But apart from this make and model is capable to do small jobs on it. As some of my logs were much to long to fit between the axe and the end of the push bar. However i would still use it on small lengths of logs if and when i need too. As this is still a brilliant wood slitter and i just wouldn't be without it at all. Read more

Overall, a great tool.
The machine is ideal for the wood I have to split. Easy to follow instructions and easy to use. Only one issue - the power lead gets in the way when operating the splitter. I will be re-routing the cable to the non-operating side. Read more

Brilliant tool
Couldn't be happier with this. Its a solid little unit that's easy to operate and packs an impressive punch. Just split a huge pile of Ash and sweet chestnut and it chomped through it all with ease in no time. Even knots and gnarly bits don't seem to be a problem. I love the satisfaction of splitting by hand, but this has just retired my axe! Read more

log splitter
I have had a log splitter before, which has now broken. It was called a handy. I find with this one the length of block i can fit in is smaller, also to split them the position of the button to turn on the electric is quite awkward, having to hunch myself over the machine to do both to split. I already have a bad back and this position isn't helping. It splits well but doesn't like knots. The wood I'm splitting is softwood so it should go through easily. i use it on a concrete base in the garden, having put 2 blocks under the feet. it was a reasonable price compared to other makes. the delivery was outstanding. i ordered online on a Tues evening and it was with me by Thurs morning.

Very easy to use, saves hours of backbreaking work with an axe.
Acquired the power splitter to prepare the logs from a couple of trees we had felled in our garden. The machine devoured the logs so we quickly had about three years supply of split logs. Would heartily recommend this product unless you want to swing an axe for ages. Read more
