INTRODUCTION
Congratulations on your choice of Log Splitters. This equipment has been designed and manufactured to
meet the needs of a discriminating buyer for the splitting of logs.
The Gearmore trailer mounted, engine driven log splitters are the latest compact designed splitters. The units
are available with two different engines 6 H.P. Briggs and Stratton or 5.5 H.P. Honda. The log splitters can be
used in the vertical or horizontal position. The 2" ball hitch allows the log splitter to be towed by ATVs, utility
vehicles, small tractors, etc.
Safe, efficient and trouble free operation of your Log Splitter requires that you and anyone else who will be
operating or maintaining the machine, read and understand the Safety, Operation, and Maintenance information contained within the Operator's Manual.
Keep this manual handy for frequent reference and to pass on to new operators or owners. Call your dealer,
or us if you need assistance, information or additional copies of the manuals.

2.1
TRAINING & PREPARATION
Before operating this Log Splitter, read and
understand this manual completely. Become
familiar with it for your own
safety. To fail to do so may
cause serious injury. DO NOT
allow anyone to operate this
Log Splitter who has not read
this manual.
NEVER use your Log Splitter for any other purposes than splitting wood. It is designed for this
use and any other use may cause an injury.
NEVER allow children to operate your Log
Splitter nor adults lacking proper instructions.
Keep them away from your work area. Your Log
Splitter is not a toy. Only the operator is to be
near your Log Splitter during use. Keep all others, including pets a minimum of 10 feet away
from your work zone. Flying wood can be hazardous. If a helper is assisting in loading logs,
NEVER activate the control until the helper
is clear of the area. More accidents occur when
more than one person operates the Log Splitter
than at any other time.
2.2 SAFETY WEAR
NEVER wear loose clothing or jewelry that can
be caught by moving parts of your Log Splitter
and pull you into it. Keep clothing away from all
moving parts of your Log Splitter. Wear proper
head gear to keep hair away from moving parts.
ALWAYS wear safety
shoes. A dropped log can
seriously injure your foot.
ALWAYS wear safety
glasses. A piece of
splitting log could fly off
and hit your eyes.
If you wear gloves, be sure they are tight fitting
without loose cuffs or draw strings.
Have a first aid kit available
should the need arise and
learn how to use it.
ALWAYS wear protective
hearing devices as needed.
NEVER operate your Log Splitter when under
the influence of alcohol, drugs or medication. A
clear mind is essential for safety.
NEVER allow a person who is tired or otherwise
not alert to use your Log Splitter.
PREPARE LOGS PROPERLY
BOTH ends of each log should be cut as square
as possible to help prevent the log from riding
out of the splitter during operation.
PROLONGED EXPOSURE TO LOUD
NOISE MAY CAUSE PERMANENT
HEARING LOSS!
Tractors with or without equipment attached can often be noisy enough to cause
permanent, partial hearing loss. We
recommend that you wear hearing protection on a full-time basis if the noise in the
Operator's position exceeds 80db. Noise
over 85db on a long-term basis can cause
severe hearing loss. Noise over 90db
adjacent to the Operator over a long-term
basis may cause permanent, total hearing loss. NOTE: Hearing loss from loud
noise (from tractors, chain saws, radios,
and other such sources close to the ear) is
cumulative over a lifetime without hope of
natural recovery.

2.3
OPERATING SAFETY
YOU are responsible for the SAFE operation and
maintenance of your Log Splitter. YOU must ensure that you and anyone else who is going to operate, maintain or work around the Log Splitter
be familiar with the operating and maintenance
procedures and related SAFETY information
contained in this manual. This manual will take
you step-by-step through your working day and
alerts you to all good safety practices that should
be adhered to while operating the Log Splitter.
Remember, YOU are the key to safety. Good
safety practices not only protect you, but also the
people around you. Make these practices a working part of your safety program. Be certain that
EVERYONE operating this equipment is familiar with the recommended operating and maintenance procedures and follows all the safety
precautions. Most accidents can be prevented. Do
not risk injury or death by ignoring good safety
practices.
•
Log Splitter owners must give operating
instructions to operators or employees before
allowing them to operate the machine, and at
least annually thereafter per OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration)
regulation 1928.57.
•
The most important safety feature on this
equipment is a SAFE operator. It is the operator’s responsibility to read and understand
ALL Safety and Operating instructions in the
manual and to follow these. Most accidents
can be avoided.
•
A person who has not read and understood all
operating and safety instructions is not qualified to operate the machine. An untrained
operator exposes himself and bystanders to
possible serious injury or death.
•
Do not modify the equipment in any way.
Unauthorized modification may impair the
function and/or safety and could affect the life
of the equipment.
•
Think SAFETY! Work SAFELY!

OPERATE IN SAFE ENVIRONMENT AND ON
SAFE GROUND
1. NEVER operate your
Log Splitter on slippery,
wet, muddy or icy surfaces.
Safe footing is essential in
preventing accidents.
2. ONLY operate your Log Splitter on level
ground and not on a side hill. It could tip over
or rolling logs or poor footing could cause an
accident. (This also prevents the spillage of
gas from the tank).
3. NEVER attempt to move the Log Splitter
over hilly or uneven terrain without a tow
vehicle or adequate help.
4. ALWAYS block wheels to prevent movement
of Log Splitter while in operation.
5. Keep work area clean. Immediately remove
split wood around your Log Splitter so that
you don’t stumble over it.
6. When using your Log Splitter, use in daylight
or under good artificial light.
2.4
OPERATING PROCEDURE
2.5
REPAIR & MAINTENANCE SAFETY
♦ ONLY operate the Log Splitter from the
operator zone.
Good maintenance is your responsibility. Poor maintenance is an invitation to trouble.
♦ Know how to stop the unit and disengage the
controls.
Follow good shop practices.
♦ NEVER place hands or feet between log and
splitting wedge or between log and ram during
forward or reverse stroke. To do so may result
in crushed or amputated fingers or worse. You
may lose an arm or foot.
♦ DON’T straddle the Log Splitter when using it.
A slip in any position could result in a serious
injury.
♦ NEVER try to split two logs on top of each
other. One may fly out and injure you.
♦ NEVER allow one person to operate the valve
while another is positioning the log, as serious
injury could result from starting operation with
the hands near the ram or wedge.
♦ DON’T step over Log Splitter when the engine
is running. You may trip or accidently activate
the ram if you step over it. If you need to get to
the other side, walk around.
♦ NEVER attempt to load your Log Splitter
when the ram is in motion. You may get caught
by the ram and injured.
♦ ONLY use your hand to operate the control
lever. NEVER use your foot or a rope or any
other extension device. This could result in
your inability to stop your Log Splitter quickly
and cause an injury.
♦ NEVER move the Log Splitter while the
engine is running
♦ NEVER leave your Log Splitter unattended
with the engine running. Shut off the engine if
you are leaving your Log Splitter even for a
short period of time. Someone could
accidentally activate the ram and be injured.
♦ DON’T run the engine in an enclosed area.
Exhaust gases contain carbon monoxide. This
odorless gas can be deadly when inhaled.
•
•
•
Keep service area clean
and dry.
Be sure electrical outlets
and tools are properly
grounded.
Use adequate light for
the job at hand.
Make sure there is plenty of ventilation. Never operate
the engine of the towing vehicle in a closed building. The
exhaust fumes may cause asphyxiation.
A fire extinguisher and
first aid kit should be
kept readily accessible
while performing
maintenance on this
equipment.
DON’T operate your Log Splitter in poor mechanical
condition or when in need of repair.
PERIODICALLY check that all nuts, bolts and screws
are tightened.
DON’T alter your Log Splitter in any manner, such as
attaching a rope or extension to the control lever or adding to the width or height of the wedge unless approved
by the manufacturer. Such alterations may cause your
Log Splitter to be unsafe.
PERFORM all recommended maintenance procedures
before you use your Log Splitter.
REPLACE all damaged or worn parts such as hydraulic
hoses and fittings immediately.
NEVER tamper with the engine to run it at excessive
speeds. This increases the hazard of personal injury.
The maximum engine speed is preset by the manufacturer and is within safety limits.
DON’T service or repair your Log Splitter without removing the spark plug wire.
All replacement parts must meet manufacturer’s
specifications. The manufacturer will not be responsible for injuries or damages caused by use of
unapproved parts and/or accessories.

2.6
TOWING SAFETY
2.7
FIRE PREVENTION
OBEY all state and local regulations when towing on public roads and highways.
NEVER operate your Log Splitter near a flame or
spark. Hydraulic oil and gasoline are flammable
and can explode.
BEFORE towing, be certain that the Log Splitter
is correctly and securely attached to the towing
vehicle and that a safety chain is in place. Leave
slack in chains for turning allowance.
DO NOT fill the gas tank while the engine is hot
or running. Allow the engine to cool before refueling.
DON’T allow anyone to sit or ride on your Log
Splitter. They can easily fall off and be seriously
injured.
NEVER smoke while operating or refueling your
Log Splitter. Gas fumes can easily explode.
BEFORE using your Log Splitter, disconnect
it from the towing vehicle. A log can easily be
pushed forward onto the vehicle.
Only refuel your Log Splitter outdoors in a clear
area void of gas fumes or spilled gas. Always use
an approved fuel container. Always replace the gas
cap securely.
NEVER carry any cargo or wood on your Log
Splitter. It may fall off and endanger vehicles
that are following you.
If gasoline is spilled, move machine away from the
area of the spill and avoid creating any source of
ignition until the spilled gas has evaporated.
Allow for added length of your Log Splitter when
turning, parking, crossing intersections and in all
driving situations.
Take a Class B fire extinguisher
with you when operating your
Log Splitter in dry areas as a
precautionary measure against
possible flying sparks.
Be careful when backing up. You can easily jackknife your Log Splitter.
Adjust towing speed for terrain and conditions.
DO NOT exceed 45 MPH. Be extra cautious and
reduce speed when towing over bumpy or rough
terrain including railroad crossings.
Completely drain the fuel tank prior to storage.
This guards against the accumulation of fuel
fumes, which could result in a fire hazard.
ALWAYS store gasoline in an approved, tightly
sealed container. Store the container in a cool, dry
place. DO NOT store in the house or near a heating appliance.
NOTE:
This unit is equipped with an internal combustion engine and should not be used on or near any
unimproved forest covered, brush covered or grass
covered land unless the engine’s exhaust system is
equipped with a spark arrester meeting applicable
local or state laws (if any). If a spark arrester is
used, it should be maintained in effective working
order by the operator.
In the state of California, the above is required by
law (Section 442 of the California Public Resources
Code). Other states may have similar laws. Federal laws apply on federal lands. A spark arrester
muffler (optional by manufacturer) is available as
an accessory at your nearest engine dealer. Check
legal requirements in your area.

2.8
HYDRAULIC SAFETY
The hydraulic system of your Log Splitter requires
careful inspection along with the mechanical
parts. Be sure to replace frayed, kinked, cracked
or otherwise damaged hydraulic components. Just
because it isn’t leaking today doesn’t mean that it
will not fail tomorrow.
Fluid escaping from a very small hole
can almost be invisible. Do not check for
leaks with your hand. Escaping fluid
under pressure can have sufficient force
to penetrate skin causing serious personal injury
or even death. Leaks can be detected by passing a
piece of cardboard or wood over the suspected leak
and looking for discoloration.
If injured by escaping fluid, see a doctor at
once. Serious infection or reaction can develop
if proper medical treatment is not administered
immediately.
Should it become necessary to loosen or remove
any hydraulic fitting or line, be sure to relieve all
pressure by shutting off the engine and moving
the control handle back and forth several times.
DO NOT remove the cap from the hydraulic tank
or reservoir while your Log Splitter is running.
Hot oil under pressure could result in serious
injury.
The pressure relief valve on your Log Splitter is
preset at the factory. DO NOT adjust the valve.
Only a qualified service technician should perform
this adjustment.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
STEP 1: Starting
CAUTION: DO NOT START OR RUN
THE ENGINE WITHOUT OIL IN THE
HYDRAULIC RESERVOIR AND ENGINE.
IMPORTANT: The engine and hydraulic tank are
shipped without oil. See the engine operating and
maintenance instructions manual packed with
your Log Splitter for the type of crankcase oil, fuel,
etc. The engine manufacturer recommends leadfree gasoline only.
CAUTION: DO NOT START OR RUN
THE ENGINE BEFORE READING ALL
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS AND
NOTES ON SAFETY THOROUGHLY.
STEP 2: The hydraulic reservoir should be filled
with an SAE20 hydraulic oil. If hydraulic oil is
difficult to obtain, automatic transmission fluid
can be substituted and should be used instead
of hydraulic oil when temperatures are below
32º F. Use only clean oil and take care to prevent
dirt from entering the hydraulic reservoir.
CAUTION: WHEN TIGHTENING THE
BREATHER CAP ON THE TANK, POINT
THE HOLE AWAY FROM THE ENGINE
AND THE OPERATOR ZONE.
4.1
ENGINE OIL RECOMMENDATIONS
BRIGGS & STRATTON ENGINES:
For temperatures above 40º F use an SAE30W
oil. Using multigrade oil may increase oil consumption. Using SAE 30W oil below 40º F will
result in hard starting and possible engine bore
damage. For temperatures below 40º F use an
SAE10W-30 or SAE5W-30 oil. Oil capacity for
the 6 H.P. engine is approximately 5/8 quart (20
ounces; 0.6 liter). Refer to Briggs & Stratton engine owner's manual for additional information.
HONDA ENGINES:
For temperatures above 50º F, use an SAE30W
oil. Using multigrade oil may increase oil consumption. For temperatures below 50º F use an
SAE10W-30 oil. Using SAE30W oil below 40º F
may result in hard starting and possible engine
bore damage due to inadequate lubrication.
SAE10W-30 is recommended for general use.
Refer to the Honda engine owner's manual. Oil
capacity is 0.58 quart (19 ounces; 0.55 liter).
ALWAYS check oil level before starting the
engine. Keep oil level at full.
11
4.2
FILLING HYDRAULIC SYSTEM
Fill the hydraulic reservoir with at least four
gallons of hydraulic fluid. After the hydraulic
reservoir and the engine crankcase are filled
with oil, start the engine. The hydraulic pump
should prime itself. With the engine running,
move the hydraulic valve lever toward the
wedge. This will cause the cylinder to extend
and expel air. When the cylinder is fully extended, retract it. Repeat this procedure several
times. An erratic movement of the cylinder
indicates that there is still air in the system.
More oil should then be added to bring the fluid
level up to the "OK" range on the dipstick. Total
hydraulic capacity is 5 gallons.
NOTE: If the tank is overfilled, it will tend
to expel oil from the breather cap when the
cylinder is retracted. After adding more oil to
the tank, cycle the cylinder again until it has a
constant speed indicating that all oil has been
expelled. Check the oil level in the reservoir
again with the dipstick to make sure it is in the
"OK" range.
4.3
TOWING
The Log Splitter is equipped with road speed
tires, a Class I coupler (2" diameter ball required) and safety chains. Before towing, the
safety chains must be secured to the hitch or
bumper of the vehicle. Local regulations should
be checked regarding licensing, lights, towing,
etc. See also Towing Safety in the Safety information section of this manual.
When transporting the machine, review and
follow these instructions:
1. Be sure all bystanders are clear of the
machine.
2. Be sure that the machine is securely attached to the tow vehicle.
3. Be sure you are in compliance with all
applicable lighting and marking regulations when transporting. Check with
your local authorities.
4. Be sure your machine can clearly be
seen by overtaking and oncoming traffic.
5. NEVER allow riders on your Log Splitter.
6. DO NOT drink and drive.

OPERATION
WARNING: ALWAYS WEAR SAFETY
GLASSES DURING OPERATION
DANGER: KEEP HANDS AND FEET
CLEAR OF RAM, STRIPPER PLATES
AND BASE PLATE AT ALL TIMES.
1. Set up the Log Splitter in a clear, level
area and block the wheels. Make sure
that the suction port on the tanks is
always on the lower side of the Log
Splitter.
2. Place a log on the beam against the foot
plate. Make sure that the log is securely
on the foot plate and up against the
beam.
IMPORTANT: Leaving the valve in the
"actuate" position at the end of the
stroke may damage the pump. Always
use extra care when splitting logs with
unsquare ends.
NOTE: For operation in wooded areas, obtain
a spark arrester for the exhaust system. See the
engine operating and maintenance manual and
check with your authorized Briggs & Stratton or
Honda service center. See also Fire Prevention in
the Safety Information Section of this manual.
IMPORTANT:
TO EXTEND THE LIFE OF THE HYDRAULIC
CYLINDER, AVOID "BOTTOMING OUT" WEDGE
PLATE TO THE FOOT PIECE. TO CONFORM
WITH INDUSTRY SAFETY RECOMMENDATIONS, THE WEDGE STOPS 2 INCHES FROM
THE END OF THE STROKE.
Both ends of each log should be cut as
square as possible to help prevent the log
from riding out of the splitter during
operation.
3. Depress the valve handle so that the
cylinder will drive the wedge into the log.
Extend the cylinder until the log splits or
to the end of its stroke. If the log has not
completely split after the cylinder has
reached the end of its extension, retract
the cylinder.

MAINTENANCE
By following a good maintenance program, your
equipment will last for many years.
1.
Consult the operating and maintenance
instructions of the engine manufacturer for
engine care and maintenance.
2.
Always check the oil level of the hydraulic
reservoir before operation. Operating the Log
Splitter without an adequate oil supply will
cause severe damage to the pump.
3.
Change the oil filter after the first 25 hours of
operation. Thereafter, change the oil filter
every 100 hours or seasonally, whichever
comes first.
4.
If the wedge becomes dull or nicked, a grinder
or sharpening tool can be used to sharpen it
while still attached to the cylinder. If it is
necessary to remove the wedge, the stripper
plate (71)* must be taken off by removing the
3
/8" bolts (68)*. Then remove the cylinder
support (66)* by taking out the 3/8" bolts (63)*.
Then remove the 1/2" x 3 1/2" bolt (51)* that
