Scheppach log splitter oil leak

This is a long shot, but I'm posting this question on the GW forum in the hope that somebody uses a hydraulic log splitter. I've had this OXT 500 log splitter for around 15+ years and it has developed an oil leak. I've contacted Scheppach in Germany who have referred me to here in the UK who have so far not responded. I've managed to find some seals but have no idea how to replace them. Does anyone have any ideas on this please?

    I suspect it may be a job for a professional. Hydraulic systems have lots of seals and it may also need other parts replacing - shafts etc. Agricultural engineers deal with hydraulic systems all the time and might be your best solution.
  • Thank you Steephill, if Scheppach can't give me instructions I will take that route.
