Log Splitter Operation Tips
Splitting with Log Splitter in Horizontal Position
Logs should be cut with square ends prior to splitting.
Splitting with the log splitter in the vertical position
- Step 1
- Stabilize the log before moving the control.
- Step 2
- Place log on the end plate and turn until it leans against the beam and is stable.
- Step 3
- When splitting extra large or uneven logs, the log must be stabilized with wooden ships or split wood between the log and the end plate, or ground.
- Step 4
- Always keep fingers away from any cracks that open in the log while splitting. They can quickly close and pinch, or amputate, your fingers.
