FAQs

How much power is required to run this?
A single 15amp circuit is more than enough to power the machine.

Can I sharpen the wedge?
Over time your YARDMAX log splitter wedge will dull. If you notice decreased performance, we recommend sharpening the wedge using a fine-toothed file, smoothing any burrs or crushed areas along the cutting edge. For questions about sharpening the wedge, call us at 844-YARDMAX.

What type of hydraulic fluid should I use?
The following hydraulic fluids or equivalents are recommended for your log splitter’s hydraulic transmission system:

  • SHELL Tellus 22
  • MOBIL DTE 11
  • ARAL Vitam GF 22
  • BP Energol HLP-HM22

Can I run an extension cord?
Yes, ensure your extension cord is no longer than 30 feet and a minimum of 12 gauge with a 3-prong grounded plug.
