Log Splitter - Ram
Check that the plastic knob of the lever is screwed on fully. If this becomes unscrewed it prevents the lever from being pushed right down, stopping the log splitter from operating. View the video below for a demonstration:
Check underneath the blade/pusher and down the sides of the carriage, for any splinters of wood that may be obstructing the carriage.
Also check that the plastic spacers underneath the blade and between the carriage and the underside of the splitter have not been dislodged.
Use the Ramstop to lock the ram in position about 150mm forward. Remove the 4 bolts holding the Duoct blade/pusher to the carriage and remove the blade/pusher. Unlock the Ramstop, if the carriage returns then the arms are bent.
Check the amount of bend with a straight edge, if it is less than 5mm then you may be able to straighten them in a vice.
