Log Splitter - Fails to Split Logs
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:
Fails to split logs – Operating lever loose or not bent correctly and therefore not operating valve correctly
Remove the combined drain plug and dipstick, tip the log splitter vertically and drain the old oil.
Tip the log splitter vertically and refill with fresh oil so that it just touches the dipstick. Note that the dipstick must be fully screwed in when checking the level.
We recommend using our HYD46+ hydraulic oil which has been specially formulated.
