SOURCE: Was just curious if the 4ton 2hp electric wood

Hi,
Sorry but I think it will be a 220V motor.
They do not advertise the voltage very well and I had to do some digging to find that the motor pulls 12.5 maps which would make it a 220 v motor. At 110v a 2 Hp motor would be pulling 20 amps or more which would still make it too much for most household circuits.
Running a new line for your splitter should not be a big project for most electrictians... Also if your husband has a gas generator most of them will run that splitter and then it would be portable...! Just load up the generator and the splitter and he can split anywhere...

My wood splitter won't push through the wood


There is usually a hydraulic pump on those units. Check and see if it is low on oil. Check and see if there is a shear pin that has broken on the shaft that goes to the pump.

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.

Where do i check the hydrolic fluid


the piston contains your hydraulic fluid. By following any hose coming out of the piston you should be able to chase down the reservoir.

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!

Was just curious if the 4ton 2hp electric wood splitter was 110 or 220...hopefully 110 as I just ordered it for hubby!

How do I remove the sprocket and clutch on the Mac 3200 chain saw


Use this as a guide:
R² Drive Link Outboard Clutch
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cdqkIuVNUQc
  1. Check at the IPL for your saw to see if any special tools are needed.
  2. A length of starter cord or nylon rope may be used instead of the piston stop (retain 6" ± so you can remove it). Make sure the piston is near the top of the cylinder before feeding the cord or it can fall through the exhaust port and damage the piston as it rises.
  3. It is probably a left handed thread (tighten it to loosen it).
    Let us know how it worked for you. GL

How to remove clutch. McCulloch 438 chainsaw. This required to get access to chain lub system. Thank you, Michael.


I think its an outboard clutch, use this as a guide. A YouTube video shows the procedure using a Husqvarna 350 here:

Wood splitter slow action


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!
