Problem with Log Splitter

retiredltMay 23, 2009

Our Lickity Splitter won't split logs. We just replaced the pump and pressure is good. Hydraulic fluid was changed, and put on new hoses. Ram will slide out and retract jus fine, but stops when it comes into contact with wood (any size piece). Any help would be appreciated.

You may have air in the system. Cycle the ram a few times then top up the oil with the ram retracted.

Is there a pressure relief valve on this thing? Relief stuck open.
I am not familiar with this splitter but I would look on the control valve for a relief valve. Sounds like you have oil flow to move the ram without a load but not creating pressure.
Remember you can have flow, (think open garden hose)
but pressure is only created with a restriction. (Same garden hose but with a nozzle on the end.)
