RIKO Farmi Mastersplit wp36

Recommended Posts

I wonder if any of the readers on here could help me withja slight problem with my petrol wp36. When extending the ram to split a log, the ram on occasions isn't returning automatically back to the start position. I've oiled all the visible moving parts which seems to help a little but hasn't solved the problem! Anyone had a similar problem and fixed it?

Cheers

 

At least 3 possible reasons here: http://arbtalk.co.uk/forum/maintenance-help/101631-farmi-mastersplit-wp36-ram-sticking.html (junk in the splitting chamber, lack of lubrication, or a broken valve)

Thanks for the help on this issue chaps! I haven't yet got the bottom of the problem but I hound hat id it set the matching on a slightly uphill gradient the problem was minimised! I got this years cutting done so it's a fix that has been pushed down the job list! When I find out what the problem is I shall report back

Cheers

Usual cause of squeaking is the scrapers that are under the box of the ram. A quick squirt of oil sorts it fine

Could also be bent infeed plate. Mine squeaked a lot when it was bent. Look down the length of the machine ad see if the gap between the plates is the same all the way along.
