    Default ***HELP*** Huskee 22 ton splitter problems

    Hey guys im having some problems with a log splitter I picked up.
    Its a huskee 22 ton with a 6hp brigs on it. As i was using it sunday. It started looseing its power. it seamed like it wasnt putting out its full tonage..

    Its not the motor. I was splitting ash wood and was splitting rounds up to 24" in diameter.

    Ive never had a problem before.

    Guy I work with said that its cause the cylinder was geting hot and they have a bypass in side them when they get hot so they wont put out the full tonage. Is this true? He also said there not made to be used in warm weather, but it was only 56 degrees.

    Ive never had a problem before.

    I change the fluid and filter and still no diffrence

    My pump dose leak a bit it, could this be my problem?
    Could the seals in my cylinder be shot....

    How old is this unit?

    Somewhere, you are losing pressure or HP. Does it work fine when cold?

    As the oil heats up, it will slip past a leak easier.
    Men, don't wear boxer underwear if you have to mow a bumpy field, liberal men don't have to worry about this.

    Is your h oil foaming at all? Maybe your pump is sucking air. If no foam I think you should check the piston seal in your cylinder.

    I have a 22 ton with a Briggs and mine started doing the same thing. I found that it was the slide binding on the beam, I drilled and tapped the back side of slide and installed grease fittings, also moved the spacer blocks closer to the beam to get rid of some of the slop in the slide. Got my power back.

    I have the same splitter. This may be completely unrelated, but I noticed that mine weeps Hydraulic fluid if it is leaning on the side of the fill plug.

    Could be slightly overfilled, especially when the fluid gets warm.
    Wonder if the OP has found his problem and fixed it, would be nice to hear.
