What are the key components of a Log Splitter?

Engine - Most log splitters use a 4 cylinder engine to power the hydraulic pump.

Motor - Some log splitter use an electric motor to drive the hydraulic pump.  Electric motors are quieter and produce less emissions, but are also less powerful.  

Pump - Log splitters use hydraulic pumps to create hydraulic pressure to actuate the cylinder.

Hydraulic Tank - the hydraulic fluid must be stored onboard.  Typical Log splitters hold approximately 5 gallons of hydraulic fluid.  The larger the cylinder diameter and stroke, the more fluid that must be available pump through the system.

Valve - the hydraulic valve or typically a spool valve directs the flow of the hydraulic fluid from the pump in order to control the extension or retraction of the cylinder.

Hydraulic Fluid - As fluids are not able to be compressed, they are a good fluid to be used as a pressure fluid.  Most log splitters utilize an oil filter to keep the hydraulic fluid clean. 

Hydraulic Hoses - The hydraulic fluid is transferred between the various components of the hydraulic system through hydraulic hoses.

Cylinder - The hydraulic cylinder uses the differential pressure created by the pump to create linear motion to move the log splitting wedge toward and away from the log. 

Wedge - Log splitters use either use a two sided wedge or a four sided wedge.  The wedge is a simple mechanical device that splits the wood as it is pushed into the log.

Frame - The log splitter frame supports the engine, pump, and of course the logs that need to split.

Tongue - Larger log splitters are able to be towed behind vehicles using a hitch.

Spark Arrestor Muffler - Spark arrestor mufflers prevent the emission of flammable debris from the generator muffler.

Wheels - Log Splitter wheels are used to support the log splitter and enable the log splitters to be moved or towed.
