Couple years back I purchased a 6-ton mini log splitter.
The unit works as advertised but I'd like to upgrade the unit with an
air-hydraulic jack. The manufacturer sells such an upgrade but the
cost of it is nearly the price of the original log splitter itself. Plus
they do so only for the next larger size splitter which may have
As I shop around I see numerous air-hydraulic bottle jacks available.
Each calls for a range of CFM and pressure. Ideally I'd like to be able
to utilize a simple home quality electric compressor. Are the CFM and
pressure requirements critical if not trying to split larger pieces?
Without resorting to modifying the base, the jack would need to fit into
a space approximately 3 1/8 x 5 1/4. Might someone be able to
recommend where I can find components that fit?
Any chance someone here has already done a similar upgrade?
