I got a County Line 25 ton log splitter with the Kohler 6.5 hp engine. It's got less than 5 hours on it so far. I went to start it tonight and it basically wouldn't turn over. To make a long story short, I did not shut the gas off and over the last month since I used it, it siphoned the fuel out of the tank and filled the cylinder with fuel which then made it's way to the oil. I pulled the oil plug and it ran out.
What a mess. I'm going to change the oil tomorrow and check the carb and get it going again. Now I know to shut the gas off after I'm done with it.
Has anybody ever had this happen? This is a first for me. Should this happen, or is something wrong with it?
