place your hands or any part of your body between a
log and any part of the log splitter.
10.On ram-type log splitters, never attempt to split
more than one (1) log at a time unless the ram has
been fully extended and a second log is needed to
complete the separation of the first log.
11. On ram-type log splitters on which the logs are not
cut square, the longest portion of the log should be
rotated down and the most square end placed against
the ram.
12.Use only your hand to operate the log splitter
controls.
13.Do not refuel the engine until it has cooled for several
minutes.
1. Always shut off the power source while repairing or
adjusting the splitter except as recommended by the
manufacturer.

A
WARNING
DO NOT remove the dipstick when the engine is running
or hot. Hot oil can escape causing severe burns. Always
allow the log splitter to cool completely before removing
the hydraulic oil cap.
High fluid pressure and temperatures are created in the
hydraulic log splitters. Hydraulic fluid will escape through
a pin-size hole opening and can puncture skin and cause
severe blood poisoning.
Inspect hydraulic system regularly for possible leaks.
Never check for leaks with your hand while the system
is pressurized. Seek medical attention immediately if
injured by escaping fluid.
6. Start Engine. Extend and retract the cylinder to
purge air from the hydraulic system. Cylinder motion
should be smooth and continuous.
7. Check the hydraulic oil tank dipstick. Add additional
hydraulic oil if needed.
8. Check oil level daily and add as needed.
NOTE
To check oil level, insert the dipstick into fill neck until it
stops. Remove and read level. Do not thread dipstick into
fill neck when checking oil.

1. Check the hydraulic oil level and visually inspect all
hoses, attachments and cylinder for loose fittings,
leaks, cracks, fraying or other damage.
2. DO NOT operate the log splitter if there is any
indication of damage.
3. Inspect the engine and make sure the oil level is
correct before operating. If the engine is equipped
with a spark arrestor, clean and inspect it regularly
(follow spark arrestor maintenance schedule).
4. The tires need to be fully inflated and in good repair.
Reference the tire sidewall for recommended tire
pressure.
This log splitter must have at least seven feet of
clearance from combustible material. Leave at least
three feet of clearance on all sides of the log splitter to
allow for adequate cooling, maintenance and servicing.
DO NOT place the log splitter near vents or intakes
where engine exhaust fumes could be drawn into
occupied or confined spaces. Always operate the log
splitter outdoors.
The log splitter needs to be on a dry level surface with
good footing. DO NOT work on mud, ice, tall grass,
brush or snow.

Operation
Starting the Engine Cont’d.
WARNING
ALWAYS use the log splitter for its intended use. The
log splitter should only be used to split wood logs,
length wise with the grain.
NEVER modify, alter or change the log splitter in
anyway. Modifications will void the warranty.
NEVER attach a rope, cable or other device to the
control lever on the log splitter.
DO NOT modify or change the engine and operating
speeds or pressure settings. These changes can
cause safety issues.
ONLY operate the log splitter in daylight.
NEVER operate, or let anyone else operate, the log
splitter while under the influence of alcohol, drugs,
or medication.
NEVER leave the log splitter unattended while the
engine is running.
DO NOT change the splitting position with the engine
running. Contact with the muffler can cause serious
burns.
Always make sure the beam is in the locked position.
DO NOT let the beam drop as it could crush fingers
or cause damage to the log splitter.
Starting the Engine
1. Make certain the log splitter is on a flat, level surface.
2. Flip engine switch to “ON” position (Item A).
3. Rotate the fuel valve to the “ON” position (Item B).
4. Move the throttle lever (Item C) to the “Fast”
position.
5. Move the choke lever (Item D) to the “Choke”
position.
6. Pull the starter cord slowly until resistance is felt and
then pull rapidly. SEE NOTE BELOW.
B

D
NOTE
If the engine starts but does not run make certain
that the log splitter is on a flat, level surface. The
engine is equipped with a low oil sensor that will
prevent the engine from running when the oil level
falls below a critical threshold.
The hydraulic oil needs to be above 10° F (-12° C)
before starting the engine. Cold hydraulic oil can
damage the hydraulic pump.
If outdoor air temperature is below 32° F (0° C)
allow the log splitter to warm up by extending and
returning the wedge several times before splitting
wood.
Stopping the Engine
1. Turn the engine switch to the “Off” position. (A)
2. Turn the fuel knob to the “Off” position. (B)
NOTE
Keep choke lever in “Choke” position for 2 pulls of
the recoil starter. After first pull, move choke lever
to the “Run” position for up to the next 3 pulls of
the recoil starter. Too much choke leads to spark
plug fouling/engine flooding due to the lack of
incoming air. This will cause the engine not to start.
7. As engine warms up, move the choke lever (Item D)
to “Run.”

Operation
Log Splitter Operation
Operation at High Altitude
1. ALWAYS wear ear and eye protection, protective clothing
and safety gear.
The density of air at high altitude is lower than at sea
level. Engine power is reduced as the air mass and airfuel ratio decrease. Engine power and generator output
will be reduced approximately 3½% for every 1000
feet of elevation above sea level. This is a natural trend
and cannot be changed by adjusting the engine. At high
altitudes increased exhaust emissions can also result
due to the increased enrichment of the air fuel ratio.
Other high altitude issues can include hard starting,
increased fuel consumption and spark plug fouling.
To alleviate high altitude issues other than the natural
power loss, Champion Power Equipment can provide a
high altitude carburetor main jet. The alternative main
jet and installation instructions can be obtained by
contacting Customer Support. Installation instructions
are also available in the Technical Bulletin area of the
Champion Power Equipment internet site.
The part number and recommended minimum altitude
for the application of the high altitude carburetor main
jet is listed in the table below.
In order to select the correct high altitude main jet
it is necessary to identify the carburetor model. For
this purpose, a code is stamped on the side of the
carburetor. Select the correct main jet part number
corresponding to the carburetor code found on your
particular carburetor.
2. Block tires and ensure support leg is secure to
prevent unintended movement of the log splitter
during operation.
3. Load a log onto the beam against the wedge.
CAUTION
Back injury can result from lifting logs onto the log splitter
if proper lifting techniques are not used.
4. Make sure all limbs are clear of crush zones.
5. Push and hold the control valve handle forward
(towards the wedge) to split the log. The wedge will
stop when the control valve handle is released, or
when the cylinder reaches the end of stroke.
6. Push the control valve handle backward and release
to return the wedge to its original position. The
control valve handle will return to the neutral position
when the wedge is fully retracted.
7. Clear the split wood from the work zone.
CAUTION
Do not hold auto control valve in return position. It
will damage the stop block or beam.
NOTE
It is normal for the hydraulic fluid to become foamy or
frothy during operation.
NOTE
If log sticks on wedge, load another piece of wood and
extend ram to push the stuck piece off the wedge.
NOTE
The cylinder stroke is designed so the wedge stops
approximately 1.5 in. (3.81 cm) from the end plate.

Champion Power Equipment, Inc. (CPE),
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) and the United States Environment Protection Agency (U.S. EPA.)
Emission Control System Warranty
Your Champion Power Equipment (CPE) engine complies with both the U.S. EPA and state of California Air
Resources Board (CARB) emission regulations.
YOUR WARRANTY RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS:
The California Air Resources Board, US EPA AND CPE are pleased to explain the Federal and California Emission
Control Systems Warranty on your 2012 small off-road engine and engine powered equipment. In California, new,
small off-road engines and new equipment that use small off-engines must be designed, built and equipped to meet
the State’s stringent anti smog standards. In the other states, new engines and equipment must be designed, built
and equipped, at the time of sale, to meet U.S. EPA regulations for small non-road engines. CPE warrants the
emission control system on your small off-road engine and equipment for the period of time listed below, provided
there has been no abuse, neglect, unapproved modification, or improper maintenance of your equipment.
Your emission control system may include parts such as the carburetor, fuel-injection system, the ignition system,
catalytic converter and fuel lines. Also included may be hoses, belts, connectors and other emission related
assemblies. Where a warrantable condition exits, CPE will repair your small off-road engine at no cost to you
including diagnosis, parts and labor. For engines less than or equal to 80cc, only the fuel tank and fuel line is
subject to the evaporative emission control warranty requirements of this section.
MANUFACTURER’S EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM WARRANTY COVERAGE:
This emission control system is warranted for two years, subject to provisions set forth below. If, during the
warranty period, emission related part on your engine is defective in materials or workmanship, the part will be
repaired or replaced by CPE.
OWNER WARRANTY RESPONSIBILITIES:
As the small off-road engine owner, you are responsible for the performance of the required maintenance listed in
your Owner’s Manual. CPE recommends that you retain all your receipts covering maintenance on your small offroad engine, but CPE cannot deny warranty solely for the lack of receipts or for your failure to ensure the
performance of all scheduled maintenance.
As the small off-road engine owner, you should however be aware that CPE may deny you warranty coverage if
your small, off-road engine or a part has failed due to abuse, neglect, improper maintenance or unapproved
modifications.
You are responsible for presenting your small off-road engine to an Authorized CPE service outlet or alternate
service outlet as described in (3)(f.) below, CPE dealer or CPE, Santa Fe Springs, Ca. as soon as a problem exists.
The warranty repairs should be completed in a reasonable amount of time, not to exceed 30 days.
If you have any questions regarding your warranty rights and responsibilities, you should contact:
Champion Power Equipment, Inc.
Customer Service
10006 Santa Fe Springs Road
Santa Fe Springs, CA 90670
1-877-338-0999
EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEM WARRANTY
The following are specific provisions relative to your Emission Control System Warranty Coverage.
1. APPLICABILITY: This warranty shall apply to 1995 and later model year California small off-road engines (for
other states, 1997 and later model year engines). The ECS Warranty Period shall begin on the date the new
engine or equipment is delivered to its original, end-use purchaser, and shall continue for 24 consecutive months
thereafter.
2. GENERAL EMISSIONS WARRANTY COVERAGE
CPE warrants to the original, end-use purchaser of the new engine or equipment and to each subsequent
purchaser that each of its small off-road engines is:
a. Designed, built and equipped so as to conform with all applicable regulations adopted by the Air
Resources Board pursuant to its authority in Chapters 1 and 2, Part 5, Division 26 of the Health and Safety Code,
and
b. Free from defects in materials and workmanship that cause the failure of a warranted part to be identical
in all material respects to the part as described in the engine manufacturer’s application for certification for a period
of two years.
3. THE WARRANTY ON EMISSION-RELATED PARTS WILL BE INTERPRETED AS FOLLOWS:
a. Any warranted part that is not scheduled for replacement as required maintenance in the Owners
Manual shall be warranted for the ECS Warranty Period. If any such part fails during the ECS Warranty Period, it
shall be repaired or replaced by CPE according to Subsection “d” below. Any such part repaired or replaced under
the ECS Warranty shall be warranted for any remainder of the ECS Warranty Period.
b. Any warranted, emissions-related part which is scheduled only for regular inspection as specified in the
Owners Manual shall be warranted for the ECS Warranty Period. A statement in such written instructions to the
effect of “repair or replace as necessary”, shall not reduce the ECS Warranty Period. Any such part repaired or
replaced under the ECS Warranty shall be warranted for the remainder of the ECS Warranty Period.
c. Any warranted, emissions-related part which is scheduled for replacement as required maintenance in
the Owner’s Manual shall be warranted for the period of time prior to the first scheduled replacement point for that
part. If the part fails prior to the first scheduled replacement, the part shall be repaired or replaced by CPE
according to Subsection “d” below. Any such emissions-related part repaired or replaced under the ECS Warranty,
shall be warranted for the remainder of the ECS Warranty Period prior to the first scheduled replacement point for
such emissions-related part.
d. Repair or replacement of any warranted, emissions-related part under this ECS Warranty shall be
performed at no charge to the owner at a CPE Authorized Service Outlet.
e. The owner shall not be charged for diagnostic labor which leads to the determination that a part covered
by the ECS Warranty is in fact defective, provided that such diagnostic work is performed at a CPE Authorized
Service Outlet.
f. CPE shall pay for covered emissions warranty repairs at non-authorized service outlets under the
following circumstances:
i. The service is required in a population center with a population over 100,000 according to U.S.
Census 2000 without a CPE Authorized Service Outlet AND
ii. The service is required more than 100 miles from a CPE Authorized Service Outlet. The 100 mile
limitation does not apply in the following states: Alaska, Arizona, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nebraska,
Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, Utah and Wyoming.
g. CPE shall be liable for damages to other original engine components or approved modifications
proximately caused by a failure under warranty of an emission-related part covered by the ECS Warranty.
h. Throughout the ECS Warranty Period, CPE shall maintain a supply of warranted emission-related parts
sufficient to meet the expected demand for such emission-related parts.
i. Any CPE Authorized and approved emission-related replacement part may be used in the performance of
any ECS Warranty maintenance or repair and will be provided without charge to the owner. Such use shall not
reduce CPE’s warranty obligation.
j. Unapproved add-on or modified parts may not be used to modify or repair a CPE engine. Such use voids
this ECS Warranty and shall be sufficient grounds for disallowing an ECS Warranty claim. CPE shall not be liable
hereunder for failures of any warranted parts of a CPE engine caused by the use of such an unapproved add-on or
modified part.

TO OBTAIN WARRANTY SERVICE:
You must take your CPE engine or the product on which it is installed, along with your warranty registration card or

hours. Alternate service locations defined in Section (3)(f.) above must be approved by CPE prior to service. Claims
for repair or adjustment found to be caused solely by defects in material or workmanship will not be denied because
