Are hydraulic log splitter's pumps real noisy?

loger_gwJuly 5, 2010

A link to my log splitter that I feel is loud and dangerous to my ears is below. I have started using ear plugs and muffs at the same time. Do you feel it is loud and have suggestions toward getting it quieter. With the hydraulic lines open and the motor and pump running, there is basically no noise. The noise appears to come from hydraulic fluid pressure.

Can't open the file. It is a good idea to wear ear plugs around noisy equipment, I didn't over the years and am now paying the price.If noise is an issue even with the plugs maybe you should look at getting someone else to run the splitter.

I was hoping this would be a better address link toward sharing the Log Splitter's noise. I have noticed it is not working from this end (possibly some limits). The last 3 addresses to the Pics should work. Please let me know if all opened (copy, paste, open, "I hope"!). Are you able to hear the noise (from the first address posted? Does the noise sound normal? Let me know of any suggestions on making the splitter run quieter if it does not sound normal.
