I am purchasing a cheap wen electric splitter to handle the small stuff and re-splits and was curious about the operation of the hydraulic cylinder. I was considering modifying it to operate dual-action. Any hydraulic gurus have advice on if the cylinder/valving/pump/seals would be able to deliver the same force on the back stroke as the forward stroke? Any indicators to look for on the unit to help out with this question? I imagine that the unit is designed to provide power only in the forward stroke but hey, its worth a shot!
