INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE
ELECTRIC/HYDRAULIC LOG SPLITTER
the product is shipped in two separate boxes to prevent shipping damage.
One box contains the motor and the other the body.
panic if you see some oil in the box as the temporary
tape that covers the holes may got loosen. It does not damage or ruin
the product since you will have to remove the tape anyway!
What to do:
take both the log
splitter motor and the main body out of their boxes with extra care.
Dropping them will void the warranty.
remove the dip stick oil
measure (part# 10) and check the oil level
only if you
found excess oil in the box. Tilt the unit on its end w/o breaking the
levers to measure it.
If you need extra oil,
you may use any good quality hydraulic oil sold at Home Depot
or any auto part store. If you cannot locate the recommended type of
oil shown in the manual than you may use the
AW-32 hydraulic oil
If the oil level is
between the two marks (which is marked in to the stick and you may
have to use your nail to touch it) carefully begin to turn the stick
clockwise without tool. After the first 2-3 turns
when you have made sure that it is in good position, you can use
wrench to tighten the nut. The first groove is about 1/2 inch, the
other is 2 inches from the end of the dipstick.
- place the main body on a flat surface with the wood
plate/tapes upwards to prevent the oil from escaping the system as shown
on the picture below.
- make sure to remove the wooden plate and all the tapes
off the oil cylinder cover so you can get access to the two holes in which
the oil flows. You will find some gray color tape under which must be
removed as well and scraped off with a knife.
- make sure to have the two black rubber O-ring seals on
the unit attached to the motor. (it might have fallen off in the box)
- you can put a tiny amount of grease on the rubber rings
to help them stay in place when placing it on the log splitter body.
- place the motor on the body with the three holes
aligned properly. THE SCREWS MUST BE TIGHTENED
BY HAND FIRST! If you have to apply excessive force to tighten them than
you did not aligned the screws well and you will STRIP THE
THREADS!!! No claims will be accepted for stripped threads!
- now you can assemble the leg and the wheels as shown on
page 6-7 in your book.
- place the log splitter on the ground or leave it on the
bench to test its operation. Ground must be somewhat level.
- remove the bleeder screw
completely and run the splitter freely without log 3-4
times then place a log on it and start splitting.
The bleeder screw is shown on the right corner.
Problem: No pressure to split
- if the oil is leaking from the point where the motor
was assembled onto the body, it means that you did not aligned the motor
properly or the two rubber rings are not in place.
- if you use long extension cord or not high grade cord
you have a good chance that the circuit breaker will go off quickly. (it
must be 10-12 gauges and be plugged in to a 20AMPS single outlet)
Problem: The splitter is too
slow and/or does not move forward or retract properly.
remove the bleeder screw completely
check the oil level.
make sure the splitter is in horizontal position
do not use longer than 25 feet extension cord and it is
an industrial heavy duty grade.
the motor is turned on
both hand levers are pushed down
the wedge is sharp, apply cooking oil
for more hints, please check manual.
Problem: Oil is leaking
both levers must be operated at the same time
not enough oil in the system or the oil is too old
unit must be placed on level surface
the handle bars (part# 51-55) are off-positioned on the
valve. It happened because the fixing screws (part# 51) were not
tightened enough. Remove the handle seats (part# 52) and the the valve
knobs (part# 53). Locate the valve shaft under the handle seats and
align them properly so the fixing screws and the valve knobs will
touch the flat surface on the valve shaft!
For detailed information on how to work around the
problem of the splitter not retracting or the ram not moving forward,
Problem: when the motor is
turned on the circuit breaker shuts down.
locate the leaking part
if it is leaking from
under the handle seat (part# 52) then remove it along with the valve
shaft holder then change the seal inside.
if the leak is at the
motor assembly: reassemble the motor by making sure that the rubber
seals are in place.
if the leakage is found
at any other places, please change the seals.

If you are using an
extension cord, make sure it's 10-12 gauges and not too long
remove the motor
run it for about 5-7
reassemble it on to the
body. It will remove the air from the system.
after the motor is
assembled: run the splitter twice without log
operate the splitter
