Operating Safety
ALLOW ONLY ONE (1) PERSON TO LOAD AND OPERATE
THE LOGSPLITTER.
• Allow only adults to operate the log splitter. No one under the age of 18 should
be allowed to operate the log splitter.
• Always keep bystanders, including children and pets, at least twenty-five (25) feet
away from the work area. Only the operator should stand near the equipment and only
within the safe operating area prescribed in this manual.
• When the ram of the log splitter is in the return mode, keep your hands off the
machine - the log splitter is designed to automatically stop when the cylinder is fully
retracted.
6
• ALWAYS disconnect the spark plug wire when the log splitter is not in operation.
• Do not allow any person to operate the log splitter until they have read and understood
the safe operating instructions contained in this manual.
• Do not, under any circumstances, alter your log splitter. This equipment was designed
and engineered to be used in accordance with the operating instructions. Altering the
equipment, or using the equipment in such a way as to circumvent its design capabilities
and capacities, could result in serious or fatal injury and WlLL VOID THE WARRANTY.
• Never operate, or allow anyone else to operate, this equipment while under the influence of medication, drugs, or alcohol.
• Never wear loose clothing or jewelry that may get caught or become entangled in the
log splitter.
• NEVER place hands or feet between log and splitting wedge or between log and ram
during the forward or reverse stroke.
• DO NOT STRADDLE OR REACH ACROSS THE SPLITTING AREA WHEN
OPERATING THE LOG SPLITTER.
• Do not step over your log splitter when the engine is running, because you may trip or
accidentally engage the ram.
• NEVER attempt to load your log splitter while the ram is in motion.
Only use your hand to operate the control lever. NEVER use your foot, knee, a rope, or
any other extension device.
Log Splitting Safety
• Always keep your fingers away from any cracks that open in the log during the splitting operation.
• ALWAYS make sure that both ends of the log you are splitting are cut as square as
possible. This will prevent the log from sliding out of position while under pressure.
Logs should be 24 inches or shorter in length.
• NEVER try to split two logs on top of each other.
• Never pile logs to be split in a manner that will cause you to reach across the log splitter.
Maintenance and Repair
• Follow all safety rules, because most accidents involving the operation, maintenance,
or repair of products occur because the assembler/owner/operator failed to observe basic
7
safety rules or operating instructions.
• ALWAYS inspect your log splitter before each use. Make sure all nuts, bolts, screws,
hydraulic fittings, hose clamps, etc. are securely tightened.
• ALWAYS check the oil level in the hydraulic oil tank and engine reservoir.
• NEVER operate your log splitter when it is in need of repair or is in poor
mechanical condition.
• NEVER tamper with the engine to run it at excessive speeds. The maximum
engine speed is preset and is within safety limits.
• NEVER make alterations to your log splitter in any manner. Such alterations
may cause the log splitter to become unsafe and WILL VOID THE WARRANTY.
• NEVER attach a rope or extension to the control lever or add width or height to the
splitting wedge. Such ALTERATIONS may cause the log splitter to become UNSAFE
and WILL VOID THE WARRANTY.
• ALWAYS clean the unit after each use. If possible, store the unit inside or cover
Towing
• ALWAYS check before towing to make certain your log splitter is correctly and
securely attached to the towing vehicle. Be sure that the ball hitch you are using is the
proper size for the hitch coupler on the log splitter . Be sure the safety chains are properly hooked to the vehicle leaving enough slack for turning.
• ALWAYS allow for added length of the log splitter when turning, parking, crossing
intersections, and in all driving situations.
• ALWAYS be careful when backing up. You could jackknife your log splitter if care is
not taken.
• ALWAYS disconnect your log splitter from your towing vehicle before attempting
to use it.
• NEVER exceed 35 m.p.h. when towing your log splitter. Obey all state and local regulations when towing on state and local roads and highways. Adjust your speed for terrain and conditions, as needed. Be extra cautious when towing over rough terrain, especially over a railroad crossing.
• NEVER tow your log splitter when there is fuel in the engine's tank.
• NEVER allow anyone to sit or ride on your log splitter.
• NEVER carry any cargo or wood on your log splitter.
8
Refueling
• ONLY refuel the log splitter outdoors in a clear area void of gas fumes or spilled
gasoline.
• ALWAYS use an approved fuel container to carry gasoline.
• ALWAYS replace the log splitter gas cap and the fuel container cap securely.
• If gasoline is spilled, move the machine away from the area of the spill and avoid creating any source of ignition until the spilled gasoline has completely evaporated.
• Take a class B fire extinguisher with you when operating the log splitter in dry areas
as a precautionary measure against possible flying sparks.
• Always store gasoline in an approved, tightly sealed container. Store the container
in a cool, dry place. Do not store the container in a house or near any heating appliance.
• Do not smoke or have open flames when refueling the engine. Do not spill fuel. If fuel
should spill, quickly wipe up the spill and allow the excess to evaporate before continuing. Make sure gasoline soaked rags are properly disposed of.
• DO NOT fill the gas tank while the engine is hot or running. Allow time for the
engine to cool down before refueling.
Preventing Fires
• NEVER operate the log splitter near a flame or spark. Oil and gasoline are flammable
and can explode.
• NEVER smoke while operating or refueling the log splitter. Gasoline, oil, and even
gas fumes can explode.
Important Notice
The log splitter is equipped with an internal combustion engine and should not be used
on or near any unimproved forest-covered, brush-covered, or grasscovered land unless
the engine's exhaust system is equipped with a spark arrester meeting local or state laws
(if any). If a spark arrester is used, it should be maintained in effective working order by
the owner and/or operator.
Start-Up Procedure
IMPORTANT NOTICE:
Do not start the engine. Follow all of the instructions in the "Start-up Procedure" before
operating the log splitter. Failure to follow this recommendation will result in engine
and hydraulic pump damage.
If this log splitter is purchased without an engine, the customer assumes all liabilities
9
that might arise from an engine that is incompatible with the design of the log splitter.
Also, any unauthorized changes or modifications to the log splitter will void all warranties. HUD-SON FOREST EQUIPMENT 1-800-765-7297
IMPORTANT: The hydraulic system oil for your log splitter NEEDS TO BE
CHECKED FOR PROPER LEVEL BEFORE STARTING ENGINE. Make sure
the filter is installed before attempting to fill the hydraulic tank or start the
engine.Instructions are printed on the side of the filter.
IMPORTANT: Before starting the engine, read the
engine manufacturer's operating and
maintenance instruction manual. If an engine manual was
not supplied with the log splitter, it is your responsibility
to obtain a manual. Start by contacting the store where
you purchased the log splitter. If they cannot help you,
contact the engine manufacturer. Check the hydraulic tank fluid level. Add if needed
with SAE 10W tractor hydraulic oil
or automatic transmission fluid, such as Dextron III. The tank is full when the oil
level is approximately one inch from the top of the tank. Tighten the fill cap. Be
careful not to spill fuel when filling the engine. If fuel should spill, quickly wipe off
and allow the excess fuel to evaporate before continuing. Fuel and fuel vapors are
highly flammable and can cause personal injury or even death when ignited.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
Your log splitter is equipped with a factory
installed engine, do not mix oil with the
gasoline. Using mixed oil/gasoline in a four
cycle engine can cause engine damage.
1. Fill the engine's fuel tank with fresh,
clean, lead-free automotive gasoline.
2. Grease fittings are installed at major friction surfaces and grease needs to be adequately maintained to friction bearings and surfaces. Attach the spark plug wire and
start the engine per the manufacturer's instructions.
3. Cycle the log splitter several times.
4. Again, check the fluid level in the hydraulic tank and add oil as needed. Replace
and tighten the fill cap.
5. Your log splitter is now ready to operate
Towing
Maximum Speed Limit - 35 mph - Your log splitter is built on a solid, unsuspended
axle. To prevent damage or possible loss of vehicle control, use extreme caution when
10
towing and do not exceed a vehicle speed of 35 mph, especially when driving on a
bumpy road. Exceptions may apply contact HUDSON FOREST EQUIPMENT 1800-765-7297.
1. Position the hitch coupler of the log splitter over or onto the tow vehicle's tow ball. In
some cases, the hitch coupler may not totally engage with the tow ball without raising
the jack leg assembly. Pull the latch assembly on the hitch coupler up and into the open
position.
2. Release the latch assembly on the hitch coupler and lock the hitch coupler onto the
tow ball. Attach the towing safety chains to the tow vehicle.
3. Raise the front leg to the towing position by pulling the spring pin. If not already
secure, make sure the hitch coupler is properly and securely attached to the tow ball.
4. Place a customer supplied lock or lock pin into the latch assembly of the hitch coupler
WARNING: Making sure the log splitter is securely attached to the vehicle is the
responsibility of the owner/operator. Failure to securely attach
the log splitter can cause
loss of control of the vehicle or the log splitter being separated
from the towing vehicle, resulting in serious injury or death.
Operation
Do not attempt to operate the log splitter without fully understanding all our instructions, safety precautions, and/or warnings. If any doubt or question arises about the correct or safe method of performing anything found in this manual, contact HUD-SON FOREST EQUIPMENT 800-765-7297 Proper care is your
responsibility.
When operating the log splitter, make sure you are standing in a safe operating area
You must stay in the safe operating area at all times when the splitting wedge is in
motion (whether extending or retracting). Never place any part of your body into a position that causes an unsafe operating condition.
1. Set your log splitter on flat, dry ground. Make sure you read all the recommendations
from the "Safety" section before using the log splitter.
2. Make sure both ends of the log you are splitting are cut as square as possible.
This will prevent the log from sliding out of position while under pressure. All logs
should be 24 inches long or shorter.
Never attempt to split wood across the grain. The log splitter was not designed for
cross-grain splitting. Doing so will damage the log splitter and may cause personal
INJURY.
3. Only using your hand, push the control lever forward (towards the log). If the
log moves, before it is contacted by the splitting wedge, release the control lever and
11
then reposition the log. Operate the log splitter only when standing in a safe operating
area. Make sure you stand clear from the engine's exhaust. Hot exhaust is intense and
can cause serious injury.
If you find you must hold the log until the wedge touches it and holds it in place, be
very careful not to put your hand between the log and the end plate or the log and the
wedge. If you must, hold the log on top and in the middle. Remove your hand immediately when the splitting wedge engages the log.
Never use your hip or any extension device to operate the valve control handle.
Do not operate the log splitter by reaching across the rail. This is a very UNSAFE
method which could cause personal injury or even death.
Do not reach or step across the rail while the log splitter is running. This is a very
UNSAFE method which could cause personal injury or even death.
CAUTION
4. Start the engine using the instructions from the engine manual. If the log splitter has
not been running (cold engine), warm up the engine and hydraulic system by running
the engine at half throttle for 3 to 4 minutes, then advance the engine throttle control to
maximum speed.
Operation - Horizontal Position
Before loading and operating the log splitter, always wear protective gear, such as safety
goggles, face shield, hearing protection, tight-fitting gloves without draw strings or
loose cuffs, and steel-toed shoes. HUDSON FOREST EQUIPMENT 1-800-765-7297
5. Never split a log using an incorrect or unsafe method.
a. Place the log on the log splitter. Grasp the log on the sides near the middle of the
block. Center the log, side-to-side, on the rail of the log splitter, making sure that the
sawed end is against the large plate (base
plate) at the opposite end of the hydraulic control valve control lever.
Do not place your hands on the ends of the
log when loading the log splitter. This is a
very UNSAFE method and could result in
injury to your hands.
CAUTION - WARNING
c. Hold the control lever, extending the splitting wedge, until the log is split or the cylinder rod stops at its maximum travel position.
Stop the log splitter (forward movement), at any point in the splitting process, if you
feel an unsafe log splitting condition is occurring. As the log is being split, DO NOT
reach forward and attempt to catch the split wood - let it fall to the ground.
d. Once the wedge reaches its full forward travel, pull back on the control lever to the
12
full retract position. The ram of the cylinder will automatically retract into the cylinder.
It is not necessary to hold the control lever as the cylinder retracts. Stop the wedge if the
log sticks (see caution below). When the cylinder is fully retracted, the control valve
will automatically shift to a neutral position.
e. DO NOT load another log or remove split pieces until the wedge has completely
stopped and the control handle automatically returns to the neutral position.
Depending on the type of wood being split, a log may not always break into two pieces
and fall to the ground. If a log sticks to the wedge, place the valve handle in the neutral
position (stop the wedge from retracting) and carefully remove the log from the wedge.
Allowing the log to remain attached to the wedge when it is fully retracted could lead
to possible injury and/or damage to the log splitter.
Operation - LJHV - Horizontal - Vertical Splitter
WARNING
Before loading and operating the log splitter, always wear protective gear, such as safety
goggles, face shield, hearing protection, tight-fitting gloves without draw strings or
loose cuffs, and steel-toed shoes.
6. Never split a log using an incorrect or unsafe method.
a. To operate the log splitter in a vertical position, pull the spring-loaded locking lever
and twist the locking lever either direction to lock it in the "unlocked" position.
b. Block the wheels and stand the rail assembly up into a vertical position.
c. Turn the spring-loaded locking lever knob until the pin slides into the slot. This
allows the plunger to snap into place, securing the rail assembly in a vertical position.
d. Move the log under the splitting wedge keeping your hands on the sides of the log
near the middle of the block. Center the log making sure that the sawed end is sitting on
the large plate (baseplate).
CAUTION
Make sure you stand clear from the engine's exhaust. Hot exhaust is intense and can
cause serious injury.
Do not place your hands on top of the log when loading the log splitter. This is a very
UNSAFE method and could result in injury to your hands.
If you find you must hold the log until the wedge touches it and holds it in place, be
very careful not to put your hand on top of the log. If you must, hold the log in the middle of the block. Remove your hand immediately when the wedge engages the log.
Never use your hip or any extension device to operate the valve control handle.
13
e. Only using your hand, push the control lever down (towards the log). If the log
moves, before it is contacted by the splitting wedge, release the control lever and then
reposition the log Operate the log splitter only when standing in the safe operating area,
f. Hold the control lever until the log is split or the cylinder rod stops at its maximum
travel position. Stop the log splitter (forward movement), at any point in the splitting
process, if you feel an unsafe log splitting condition is occurring. As the log is being
split, DO NOT reach forward and attempt to catch the split wood - let it fall to the
ground.
g. Once the cylinder reaches its full forward travel, pull back on the control lever to the
full retract position. The ram of the cylinder will automatically retract into the cylinder.
It is not necessary to hold the control lever as the cylinder retracts. Stop the wedge if the
log sticks (see caution below). When the cylinder is fully retracted, the control valve
will automatically shift to a neutral position.
h. DO NOT load another log or remove split pieces until the wedge has completely
stopped and the control handle automatically returns to the neutral position.
CAUTION
Depending on the type of wood being split, a log may not
always break into two pieces and fall to the ground. If a log
sticks to the wedge, place the valve handle in the neutral position (stop the wedge from retracting) and carefully remove the
log from the wedge.
Allowing the log to remain attached to the wedge when it is fully retracted could lead
to possible injury and/or damage to the log splitter.
INSPECTION and MAINTENANCE
HYDRAULIC OIL CHANGE
HUD-SON FOREST EQUIPMENT recommends an oil and filter change every 100
hours of operation.
IMPORTANT NOTICE
Never run the log splitter unless the hydraulic oil tank is full.
1. Remove and replace the oil filter.
a. Remove the existing oil filter and properly dispose of it.
b. Apply a thin coat of oil to the rubber seal of the new oil filter.
14
c. Screw the filter onto the filter head. Once the filter makes contact with the
filter head, turn it an additional 3/4 turn. Hand-tighten only.
General Maintenance Check (before operating)
The hydraulic system (hoses, cylinder, and pump)
should be carefully inspected before
each use. Also, inspect the mechanical parts at the same
time. Make sure all clamps,
nuts, bolts, fittings, etc. are properly installed and tightened.
Grease fittings on rame wher it slide on frame (4). Do
not check for leaks with your hand. Leaks can be located by passing a piece of cardboard or wood around the suspected leak and looking for discoloration. High-pressure
fluid escaping from a very small hole can be almost invisible. Escaping fluid under
pressure can have sufficient force to penetrate skin, causing serious injury or even death.
If fluid is injected into your skin, it must be treated immediately by a doctor familiar
with this type of injury.
Always replace frayed, kinked, or cracked hoses and/or other damaged hydraulic components with HUD-SON FOREST EQUIPMENT authorized parts and components.
HUD-SON FOREST EQUIPMENT - PARTS DEPARTMENT 1-800- 765-7297
