The tips for using the log splitter

1. Check the splitter

Before using the machine, ensure it's lubricated, has enough gas and oil, and operates properly. 

2. Position the wood

When you start splitting the wood on the workbench, you can position the wood so the blade is a slightly off-log centre. The centre of the log is the densest part and the hardest to split, so splitting the off-centre of the log can cleaner cuts with fewer splinters.

3. Use the high-quality oil

High-quality oil will help your log splitter run at peak performance for longer.

4. Protection measures

Protection measures are essential when using the machine to split wood. Wear gloves when operating to protect the hands from wood thorns.

Make your operation safer and more professional with these steps.
