Tips & Advice
Heating with wood is becoming more and more popular. Many people appreciate the feeling of sitting in front of the fireplace in winter in their living room. One saying is, "Wood warms three times": first when the wood is sawn, then when it is split, and finally when it is burning. Here are a few tips about the log splitters.
How do horizontal log splitters work?
Horizontal log splitters work by pushing the wood horizontally into a splitting wedge.
Cut the wood to size
Saw the wood to the ideal length to fit in your log splitter.
Split fresh wood
Split freshly cut wood inline with the grain. Splitting dry wood is risky because it can burst and parts of the log can fly off.
Wood splitters should be used on a solid, flat surface. Please wear safety shoes, goggles and gloves.

Why does the splitter ram not automatically return to its original position?
Why does the log splitter not apply enough pressure?
Which hydraulic oil is recommended?
For refilling we recommend hydraulic oil with the viscosity class HLP 46.
The KHS log splitter runs along but only up to about 16 cm. Is there a fault?
No. Due to the design the splitter can not continue to drive towards the splitting wedge.
Does the hydraulic oil have to be replaced?
A complete replacement is not necessary. We only recommend refilling with HLP 46 oil as required. Please refer to your operating instructions.
How do I store the log splitter?
Clean the unit and store it in a dry place.
