Thank you for your question.

I am sorry you are having a problem with the cylinder on the log splitter. I am sorry we do not have a service manual available for this splitter. If the cylinder is leaking out of the ram or from a fitting, you cannot tighten I recommend taking it to a local hydraulic repair shop. They should be able to install new seals and fix the leak. The manufacture dose not list repair parts for the cylinder but the shop can match up the seal and get it fixed.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life.

Mark, Thanks fot the reply. Over the weekend I pulled the cylinder off the splitter to get a better look at the problem. It's amazing how fluid leak sources can deceive. The leak is at the weld that is on the hydraulic tube of the ram return fitting which the ram control valve is directly attached. I had to disconnect everything in order to unthread the control valve from that fitting. In doing so the fitting broke off the tube at the weld. It must have been really fatigued. Can the fitting be re-welded to the tube without taking the seal out of the tube? The seal is about 2 inches from the weld point. I was going to take it to a weld shop today after work. I get off at 2pm( today is Tues. ) If you could get back to me before then I'd really appreciate it. I don't want to cause myself any additional problems. Thanks again. Pete

Welding that close to the seal is a little risky but if the welder feels he can do it without getting that area hot enough to melt the seal it should be ok. They have cloths and gels that will stop the heat from migrating from the weld. If he is hesitant on welding it, I recommend taking the cylinder apart. It is better to safe than sorry. Please let me know how this works out.
