    So I borrowed my uncle's Swisher Splitter and was working my way through a bunch of nasty elm when all of a sudden oil started squirting from the cylinder as it was in the middle of splitting a piece. So, what's next? How does this get repaired and do I call a dealer or a hydraulic shop?

    Thanks Mellow. The next question is, what kind of a DIY project is this or am I best to take it in somewhere?

    I would call and see what someone would charge if you brought the parts. The guys that work on heavy equipment might do it.
