Intermittently fails to split logs – Silicone sealant or other contaminant floating in tank

Last Updated on April 20, 2020 by Forest Master

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.
