I have a 35 ton black diamond log splitter . The ram won’t move it has plenty of hydraulic oil . Worked fine 2days ago .


does it make any noise when you press the lever?
it could be a number of things.
hydraulic circuits usually have bypasses when they reach a certain pressure the relief valve opens and oil is returned to the tank safely. if not you could have popped a safety v/v which is in place if the return circuit is not functioning it releases the oil pressure it may have to be replaced for it to function again. this may not be the case either sometimes with log splitters the track get clogged full of crud but you would hear the pump loading then unloading through the relief circuit. the ram could be bent but usually there would be an oil leak in this case. i assume that the pump is running and all that?

Hydraulic oil spewing from fill cap

Check the assembly and note that the ram returns to its position when you activate it EVEN if you release the valve handle. Also make sure you don't have too much fluid in the reservoir.

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.

Wood splitter is pushing hydrolic fluid out fill tube on the return stroke


make sure that the ram is in the fully retracted position
empty oil reservoir until the oil level is at the required position normally about 1/4 inch below filler plug
if oil is added with the ram at any extension then the extra oil will be pushed back into the reservoir and over flow out

  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.

Splitter (2 years old) motor won't shut off.


First of all, I hate to, but have to ask, have you verified oil level is up to proper level? Have you checked power at directional solenoid when handle is moved to different directions, as well as released? Obviously when handle is in stop position, there shouldn't be power to motor in either direction. I can't see exact model, or design obviously,but that would be a good place to start.

Log splitter how to flush hydraulic system


removing hydraulic oil from the system
  • fully extend the cylinder. and shutdown.
  • remove the one end of the hose that is from the rod end of the clylinder.
  • two ways you can go here. either: detach the one end of the hose that is attached to directional control valve and leads to the cap end of the cylinder and place the end in a pale then retract the cylinder by physically forcing the rod back in and all the oil will drain out of the cap end into the pale and the rod end will fill with air.
  • or u could hold the directional valve in the position to let the oil flow back to tank while physically forcing the rod back in. the oil in the cap end will drain to tank and rod end will fill with air.
  • drain the tank of oil.
  • if you wanted to be extra thurough remove the remaining lines and drain the oil out of them.
  • reattach all lines.
  • replace oil filters/strainers. should be one on the return line going to tank. and one on the suction line before the pump. But there may not be a second filter.
  • fill tank with new oil.
  • extend the cylinder using the pump. allowing the air to bleed off the rod side. may chatter at bit while extending. if excessive chatter remove line end to allow the air in the rod side to bleed to atmosphere and continue till fully extended.
  • reattach line. probably a good idea to run a couple cycles.
  • and repeat the entire process for a thurogh flushing.
  • ! note: dont be dissconnecting lines with pressure in them or while the system is running.
  • ! note: be sure to have enough oil in the tank so the pump is not sucking air. this will eventually cause unrepairable damage to pump if sucking air for too long.
  • i just wrote this off the top of my head and ive only worked on industrial hyraulic systems and never on a log splitter before so just keep that in mind. hope it helps
