0Phil B 6 years ago ReplyUpvoteI just put together a log splitter for my son-in-law using various junk parts he gathered. He had acquired an Enerpac Hushh Pup electric pump powered by a 1 horsepower electric motor running on 120 volts. A hydraulic ram 2 inches in diameter and about 3 1/2 feet long came attached to the pump. It works quite well, although it is a little slow. My job was to attach the ram and the pump to the leftover portion of an old log splitter that is an "I"-beam with a slider to push the wood and a large knife to do the splitting. Another part of the job was to mount it on a set of wheels from the front end of an old riding lawnmower. All of this sounds rather simple, but there has been a lot of thinking, cutting, grinding, fitting, and welding to get all of the details as close to right as possible.
