I've had this valve on my log splitter for two seasons. At first it worked fine, but by the end of season one, every time the ram was returned, a little shot of hydro fluid would be spit out of the back of the valve when the auto kick-out functioned. Being just a couple drops, I figured so what. By the end of season two, fluid was leaking out of the back of the valve regardless of whether the machine was running or not.

Went to the Prince web site. In the FAQ section was an FAQ addressing this very problem. It indicated the leakage could be caused by a pressure spike in the hydro return line. OK, so what do you do about it? The web site gives no indication. Searched for information on the web, no luck. Tried to disassemble the valve to see if there was a bad seal I could replace, but there are no instructions available. I ended up damaging the valve.

The Prince web site says, don't contact us if your a lowly end user (only distributors can contact them directly). A link is given to the various distributors, which all happen to have the same name. Go to their site and you discover they deal with major equipment, not log splitters.

This valve is cheaply made, poorly designed, and has no support. Buy at your own risk! I'm replacing mine with a Cross valve. Yes it costs more, but you get what you pay for.

Hey Prince, consider replacing the "Made in America" sticker with one that says "Made in China"!

I bought this valve as a replacement for the original Prince log splitter valve that started leaking. This Prince hydraulic log splitter valve started leaking after about 2 years of use and I have wrapped a rag around the drippy end of the valve. I have split about 50 cords. I am not abusive or rough on this valve. Valve spurts a blob of hydraulic fluid when the ram completely retracts on the return stroke.

This valve was a perfect replacement for my failed 25 year old log-splitter valve. It works great and was American made, and at a great price.

A quality replacement.

I don't always control the direction of my valve or logsplitter, but when I do, I always use this item.
