Question about Ryobi Garden

1 Answer

Hydraulic fluid "top-up". In my usual maintenance of my Ryobi log splitter (Model # RY49701), I noticed the hydralic fluid to be somewhat low. The operator's manual suggested topping upo with , I assume, 22 grade hydraulic fluid, and gave several examples, eg.Shell Tellus 22, Mobil DTE 11, ARAL Vitam GF 22, etc. I am only assuming that the fluid is 22 grade given the examples but I'm unable to find that in any of the hardware, automotive, shops that I have tried. What grade hydraulic fluid should I be using, and if another grade is suggested, can I mix the fluid in the splitter as I bought it , with the top up, or should I drain the fluid and replace it with an alternative fluid? Thanks for the help. Perhaps a rather stupid question but I do want to follow the manufacturer's recommendations. Thanks again, Eric Pasquet

    Yep. Good advice. I can get the 32 grade (light) so I'll change whatever is in the splitter and replace it with the 32 grade.
    Very helpful. thanks.

Hi,

Here is a crossreference sheet that gives many other brands.
I would think that you could find one of those oils to top off you splitter with...
Check places that deal in "outdoor equipment" or a farm machinery dealer.
Don't know if you have a "Tractor Supply" Store near you either... they would have it.
They also have a universal hydraulic oil that can be bought online.
This is a 10W-20 oil that would work and mix with what you have...

Log splitter ram will not move


Are you low on hydraulic fluid due to a leak? Check the fluid first, if that is ok the ram control valve may be leaking internally.

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.

Loss of power


Sounds like either the internal relief on the control valve is bypassing prematurely of the setting or possibly the packing in the hydraulic cylinder is worn and bypassing fluid. Not really enough info to make a good diagnosis.

do you hear hydralic motor if not use test light while operating control switch up and down position, you need a helper for this procedure.if power is at switch, see if power at hydralic motor while helper work the control switch, if no power at motor hook test light to good ground if no power at hydralic motor check fuse.if power at hydralic motor and you hear no sound hydralic motor bad.if power going to control switch and not to hydralic motor either control switch bad or you have broke loose wire at switch going to motor.if all electrical system okay and when you work the up switch and hear hydralic motor running your hydralic fluid level low reason why convertible top not going up.check fluid level at the side of the motor and pump you should see screw type check plug.you should have see through side reservoir fluid level should be between min and max marks.if fluid is low check for leaks at the pump hoses and hydralic cylinders.

I have a King Canada 5 ton electric log splitter and the log pusher won't push the logs. And now it won't even turn on at all even though it is plugged in. I've added hydraulic oil. What can be the...


Plug a known working lamp into the power socket to verify that power is there. This unit should be used on a 20 ampere circuit and use a heavy 12 gauge extension cord if required. When the motor runs, it also drives the pump. The pump could be in poor condition or the piston may be passing hydraulic fluid by it. Service of these units should be left to an experienced hydraulic mechanic who will have the necessary pressure gauges and other specific tools. If you just obtained this splitter, take it back for warranty service or replacement. Hydraulic service is not cheap! Hope this helps!

Ryobi log splitter model# RY49701 Motor will not Run properly.


Make sure that you are not using a light extension cord (use a heavy 12 gauge cord) as it will starve the motor for voltage. Hopefully, there are no contaminants in the hydraulic oil which could cause the pump to bind up at times. Worst case is if the motor bearings are going bad. Hope this helps!
