In the very rare case that the valve core shoots out of the log splitter, this is caused by misuse of the machine.
You must remember not to press down with force on the operating lever. The operating lever simply controls whether or not the ram moves – pressing harder on the lever will not increase the splitting pressure.
When the lever is pushed down with force, it bends the handle down and leads to a pressure build-up which eventually pushed the valve core out. You must also remember not to leave the log splitter under constant pressure when splitting for more than five seconds.
This can be solved – check to make sure that every part of the valve core is present, this can then be inserted back into the machine. If the valve core is damaged, you can contact us directly to purchase a new one.
You must also ensure that the operating lever is straightened to a 90 degree angle.
