"My wood splitter was manufactured in the 70's and the company has been out of business for years. I contemplated rebuilding the original cylinder due to hydraulic oil leakage out of the front seal, but the piston was so scored after hundreds of cords of wood. After asking several questions and very careful measuring, I ordered the Nor-Trac 4 inch cylinder. I had to perform several slight modifications, but it was darn near a remove and replace operation. After purging all of the air out of the system, it performed flawlessly!
Can't beat the price!

"I used this on my homemade log splitter and havnt had any complaints about it. Tie rod end has about 1" of adjustability so it will fit your replacement log splitter. For the price you can beat it."

Cylinder

"The cylinder has increased the ability of my homebuilt splitter significantly. I did not realize how weak the old cylinder had become until I installed this one . Great product. I have been buying products from Northern Tool since they were Northern Hydraulics and have never been disappointed."

Excellent replacement

"Purchased this cylinder for replacement on log splitter. It matched the exact dimensions of the old cylinder so replacement was fairly easy. One end is welded split tongue but the other end is removable so you don't have to cut the tang off to fit into wedge end. Provides excellent power with no lag. Matched perfectly for pump PSI."
