It's brilliant!!
It's brilliant, I have so much wood to split and it has just gone through it so quickly. Splits even the hardest of wood that I normally would have struggled with using my axe. Love it. Read more

Does exactly what it is designed to do
With hindsight I wish I'd bought the stand at the same time as it is too heavy to keep lugging about - but the stand is on it's way. The instructions for constructing the safety cage should be in more detail as that bit was a bit tricky with the limited instructions present. Read more

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
