    Default Fliud amount

    Hi, I just got an Iron & Oak log splitter (it's pretty old) yesterday. It worked like a million bucks all day but I noticed it had a hydraulic fluid leak that i'm gonna fix as soon as possible, I know it's not a good idea to run it low on fluid so I quit until I get it fixed, but when I went outside today and fired her up just to see how it ran and the hydraulics don't work and the wedge won't move. It is about half full on fluid and again I am going to fix it before it see's wood again but is the low fluid why it's not working or do i have deeper problems?

    Remove a cyl hose , place hose in bucket, and see of you have fluid flow.

    Lower your suction tube more in the tank.

    Fill to correct level.

    Cyl will self bleed as you cycle the splitter.

    When I works, I works hard. When I sits and thinks, I goes to sleep.

    Git er done.
