I have a 45 ton Grudge Log splitter. the ram works but has no power to split logs.


indicates insufficient pressure from the pump
bypass at the ram/piston seals---seals or scored cylinder
have it checked by a hydraulic specialist

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.

Log splitter won't return to start position


well it's a complete guess due to fact you didn't mention model or mfg or even a photo , but most log splitters have a auto return tripper device this should activate ,either a switch or hydraulic lever to reverse the flow of oil from the cylinder after a log is split , some models even use large springs to force the cylinder back into its sleeve after it extends out , I guess springs could break ? this would be easy to clearly see with a close visual inspection

Replace the Hydraulic oil in the log splitter after
every 150 hours of use. Take following steps to
replace it.
  1. Make sure all moving parts stops and the log splitter is unplugged.
  2. Unscrew Oil Drain Bolt with Dipstick to remove it.
  3. Turn the log splitter on the Support Leg side over an 4 liters capacity container to drain the hydraulic oil off.
  4. Turn the log splitter on the the motor side.
  5. Refill fresh hydraulic oil at the volume as per the hydraulic oil capacity of a particular model indicated in above specifications table.
  6. Clean the surface of Dipstick on the Oil Drain Bolt and put it back into the oil tank while keep the log splitter vertically.
  7. Make sure the level of the refilled oil is just between 2 grooves around the Dipstick.
  8. Clean the Oil Drain Bolt before thread them back. Make sure they are tightened to avoid leakage before place the log splitter horizontally.
Periodically check oil level to ensure it is between
2 grooves around the Dipstick. Upon Lower oil
level, oil refilling is required.

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!

Whay kind of hydraulic fluid do I use in a mtd split it wood splitter


Hi,

You can use 10W AW hydraulic fluid or Dexron III automatic transmission fluid. It takes approximately 4 gallons. You need to change the fluid after every 100 hours of usage.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
