Question about Plumbing
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!

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.
