  1. I have had this splitter for 2 years and run quite a bit prob over 80m3 through it (domestic use). It has been cracking also have a 6lb maul and x27. If the wood is easy I go to the x27 as it is quicker but everything else goes through the forest master. It has been very abused splitting nasty knotty stuff up to 30” wide and found with big bits as long as you take little bites with it is fine!! I have had it in bits once to try and fix the ram returning when the pump was running but couldn’t find the fault (and the splitter still works fine) I have also had to weld the black log support side rails on as the larger pieces of wood stripped the screw threads. Some spare parts are available for them if you do a bit of searching. In hindsight I would of got a vertical splitter to make splitting the bigger stuff easier but for a mains splitter and for the money it has lots of power has only been stopped by a handful of pieces and it eventually went through them!! I have a friend who has the screwfix Titan and the forestmaster is about twice as heavy 47kg and has far less issues with knotty bits
  2. Just a thought, but might be worth putting a post on “British BBQ forum” on Facebook the people on there are really into there BBQing and smoking they are always looking for quality reliable lump wood charcoal. You may get a few local customers if your willing to ship you should definitely shift some!
