Homemade Log Splitter First TEST! Part 16


This is the first test of the log splitter. It works great! Only running it around 1/2 throttle and that ram really moves fast. Pump is a Haldex 16/4 gpm dual stage pump. Running 3/4″ hoses, 2.25″ rod in a 4″ cylinder. Not sure what this cylinder came off of, but the in/out are 1/2″. Runs great. Tank holds about 4 gallons of hydraulic fluid. Still need to build my log table at the end and beef up under the wedge. Thought I could get away with it, but it needs a little more reinforcement. Man, that ram moves faster than I thought it would, bring on the wood!
