When splitting logs the wood splitter does not have enough power to do the job. It seems that the motor is working fine but not the power supply to actually split the log.

Works for 15 min and then ,the ram moves to log and stops,checked fluid ok, voltage 115 ok


My thought is that there is air in the line. I had problem like that with my splitter. To cure it I had to stand the splitter on end because the oil fill is at the wedge end. I filled it. set it back horizontal and cycled the ram full length 3 times. I stood it on end again and could add more fluid. When I filled again it was now full of fluid and works properly. It also could be that the splitter is not powerful enough to split that size log down the middle. I must take a smaller bite then it works.

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.

Adding hydrolic oil to yardworks 4-ton wood spliter


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!

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


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...

I share a TV antenna with my neighbour. there are three splitters in the line - one to give an output to a next door bedroom TV, a second gives a signal to their lounge TV with th other leg continuing to...


I suspect there is a Mast Head Amplifier to supply enough signal to split so many ways and the power supply is powered from the power socket supplying the neighbours TV. Switch it off and no/poor signal.
