hydraulic problem with electric log splitter

biddoMay 29, 2007

We have an electric 5-ton horizontal log splitter from Northern Tools in Mn. It worked great until the other day. The electric motor is fine, the hydraulic air valve is open, nothing is obstructed but the spitting wedge will not retract. The owner's manual does not address this in the trouble shooting section and customer service was unable to help. Has anyone else experienced this or solved this type of problem?

If there is a coupling between the motor shaft and the hyd pump shaft,is it in good condition?

I got an electric splitter from www.omegastores.com and they could answer my questions with the log splitter! They were very helpful actually. Contact them and they might be able to help you as well. Since you did not buy the splitter from them, they may charge you some for the technical help but it's worth it.
