The cylinder anchor block on a log splitter is responsible for securing the cylinder to the main beam. The main shaft sits atop two guide rods, strut plate eight, and guide rod anchors 9. Strut arms and hydraulic cylinders 10A and 10B are secured to the main beam by strut plate anchor 9. These parts, along with strut arm locator pin 12, yield a rigid substructure for the entire log-splitting device.
Strut plates 8 minimize the leverage effect.
A log splitter comprises two main parts: the main beam and a guide rod 2. The main beam acts as the support for the logs. The guide rods are secured in place by guide rod anchors. Guide rods 2 rest on strut arms nine secured to strut plates 8. The strut components are connected to the log splitter’s hydraulic cylinders 10A, and 10B by strut arm locator pins 12. Strut plate eight and guide rod anchors 43 make up a rigid substructure for the entire log-splitting device.
The strut plates, eight flanks the guide rod 2 assemblies are usually 5 to 15 inches tall, although 8 to 9 inches is a better choice. Their height is essential because they reduce the leverage effect on the log splitter cylinder anchor block. Leverage can cause forces to buckle, and the struts can effectively minimize this effect.
Guide tubes 19 are telescopically sheathed over guide rods 2
Log splitters have guide rods to compress logs during operation. The guide rods are long and extend from 65 to 120 inches. They minimize the leverage effect of compression. Guide tubes are telescopically sheathed over the guide rods to provide additional stability.
A main beam 1 supports the logs and rests on guide rods 2. Guide rod anchors hold these rods in place. Strut arms (9) are secured by locator pins in guide rod anchor blocks. The main beam is an upside-down U-shaped channel that covers and protects the guide rods 2. It supports the log splitter cylinder 10A and the split logs.
Guide rods 2 and tube 19 are connected to main beam one via hydraulic cylinders. In addition, a ram fastener plate 18 is attached to the main beam via a bolt. Fig. 5 illustrates the relative placement of the guide rods and anchor blocks.
The log splitter of the present invention has a hydraulic ram 20 that presses against the rear splitting wedge. The ram is then pushed forward using the hydraulic cylinders and guide rods.
Hydraulic ram 20 is a log splitter.
A log splitter is constructed to have a hydraulic ram for compressing and extending a log. This cylinder is shown in FIGS. 2 and 3. The hydraulic ram is shown in closed and open positions and rides on a pair of guide tubes. In operation, the hydraulic ram will compress a log and leave a cavity along the main beam of the log splitter.
Hydraulic rams are typically double-acting and heavy-duty. They are capable of up to 3500 PSI of pressure. They are available in 4″ and 5″ bore sizes. They come with a two-year warranty and free shipping. They are compatible with gas and electric-powered log splitters.
When using a hydraulic log splitter, it is essential to choose the log carefully to avoid damage. Moving large logs to the splitter cylinder is not easy when using the unit by one person. Most records are moved manually to position in the splitter and may be covered in dirt. That is not a desirable outcome if the logs are stored indoors.
Bidirectional log splitters are also available. This log splitter has two stationary splitting wedges and a moveable ram. This bidirectional design helps increase the number of split logs. A bidirectional log splitter also has a four-way star-splitting head that compresses the records in both directions.
The hydraulic cylinder 12 is mounted on a square boom tube 54. The cylinder is positioned in between two flanges, which are connected by a guide rod. Guide rod 2 is held in place by a guide tube and a ram fastener plate 18. A cotter pin 75 is secured around the cylinder by the cylinder rod.
Hydraulic ram 20 has two cylinders.
Hydraulic rams are versatile tools that can be used in many different applications. They are more potent than standard hydraulic cylinders and are ideal for pushing heavy items. A typical hydraulic ram has a working pressure of up to 10,000 psi. It can be attached to fixtures or used as a standalone tool.
One hydraulic cylinder can move a workpiece over a distance of 250 mm in just 20 seconds. Its piston is 150 mm in diameter and has a force of 50 kN. Using two cylinders allows it to work on different parts of a workpiece.
A hydraulic cylinder works on hydraulic oil or pressurized fluid to channel powerful force. They are commonly used in manufacturing environments. They are versatile and easy to use. They can move, lift, lock, and transport heavy loads. Their high working capacity makes them an excellent choice for various applications. They are also easy to maintain and repair.
The operating specifications of a hydraulic cylinder include the cylinder type, stroke, maximum operating pressure, bore diameter, and rod diameter. The stroke refers to the distance the piston travels through the cylinder. The maximum operating pressure is the maximum pressure the hydraulic cylinder can withstand before breaking.
