Fuelwood 2003 Kindlet not working

Recommended Posts

Hi I have a 2003 fuelwood Kindlet. I have to say these are an impressive machine have it from 6 months old. 


Recently i I have problems with it slow to start and run and stopping as the blade hit the softwood. 

I got the capacitors checked and they were all done. Changed the start and run inside the box and the black 160-200 one outside the box. Machines is running perfect band ram working when it’s not under stress, but still as it hits the wood it stops. Any suggestions? The machine is at the mark with hydraulic oil. 


Thanks chris

When it stops 

Does motor carry on running or does motor stop?? 

When it hits something hard does hydraulic system blow off / bypass??

Sounds like the hydraulic system to me. Either a valve is stuck open/part open in the valve bank allowing the oil to bypass the ram to pressure it, or possibly (and easier to check I would think) that there is a blocked hydraulic filter? That will slow the amount of oil that can be sent through the system.


I don't have one of the machines, but I have a stack of machinery which runs off hydraulics and those would be my favorites from my experience. You can get the system pressure tested so that you can see where there is good pressure and where it is dropping off, which in turn isolates the problem.
