If a log becomes stuck on the splitting wedge and will not completely split, follow the directions below to remove the log:

  1. Release both the power button and the control lever. Wait until the log pusher has completely returned to its original position and stopped moving.
  2. Insert a wooden wedge under the jammed log.
  3. Push the power button and pull the control lever simultaneously to start the log splitter. Allow it to push the wooden wedge completely under the jammed log.
  4. Repeat steps 2-3 using progressively larger wedges until the jammed log is free.


WARNING! Do not attempt to remove the jammed log with your hands or knock it out of the splitting wedge. This may cause serious injury or damage to the machine.
