Wood splitter slow action

I have an older Didier wood splitter. Nothing stops the hydraulic piston. However, it is extremely slow. Is there any adjustment I can make to speed up the ram?

What's going on is the seals are worn out on the inside and the fluid is bypassing. This is why it is slow.....while operating it, feel it. If it is hot, it's bypassing....the actuator (cylider that houses the piston) needs rebuilt.

If you can get the specs on this, it is really easy to reseal....pressure testing is another thing....take it to a rebuild shop. get this done and it will last another 30 winters!

Good luck!

If it's always been that way, it may have a single-stage pump. My Troy-Bilt PTO splitter was made by Didier around 1984 and has a 2-stage hydraulic pump. The cylinder return stroke is relatively quick.

Was working fine until just not enough power to split log


Air conditioners usually cannot split logs very well. They are better at cooling instead of splitting wood. If you have a wood splitter and picked AC by mistake then I would check the hydraulic fluid level, grease the slide that the splitter wedge runs on. Then change the oil in the engine and clean the airfilter or replace it. Also make sure you use fresh gas and not old gas. gas goes bad after sitting a few months.

I have a didier wood splitter and the hydraulic need seals. part number is 200889.where can i get the seals. here is my e mail .harleyman5787@hotmail.com


Most companies have a website that offers repair parts . You'll be asked to enter the model number and serial number to be sure to get the correct parts you'll need. Some websites give you a contact number where you can call them directly to order the parts that you want. Google the manufacturer name. That will put you on the right track. Good luck .Hope this helps you.

Have an older Sears Craftsman 10" Table Saw, model


you should be able to order one from sears. another place to look is ebay. the round plastic thing is to mark with pencil the cut of the blade. put in your sliding miter Gage set at 90 deg. put a piece of wood on it, push forward and cut the wood then slide back and mark the wood position on the plastic. that's the point where your blade cuts

Ryobi electric log splitter won't return to startposautomaticaly


We have one of these splitters and the only problem has been a control valve sticking down. Oiled the valve button with silicon oil which seems to have helped. Be sure to close the bleeder valve when putting the machine away. We bought the machine from Home Depot. Use some headphones for your music! We have split rounds much larger than recommended by splitting from different sides. Hope this helps!
