I have a 300, and would like to build a log splitter that would attach to the 3-point hitch, the tractor does have hydralics(two connections at rear), my question is what hydralic cylinder do i use,what is the capacity of the pump on the tractor, and do i have to use the hydralic levers on the tractor to operate the log splitter?

Jnicholson is right. I have a 4 inch bore cylinder spliter on my 350 IH that works just fine. I don't feel its too slow but I do have to work arounds some knots. Since all my materials to build it were free, I love it. I do think it works just a tad better on my Super 55 Oliver.

I tried to use ahydraulic wood splitter on my 300 and it wouldn't split a match. It was just a normal splitter. maybe if you had a cylinder off of a D8. maybe. Kent

I split knots and all so I would need a 5 in.cyl on down stroke and a much smaller cyl on the up stroke. 4 in. will split easy stuff but not the hard stuff.

The pump produces about 1200psi, at usually between 9 and 10 gpm. To get log splitting power, your cylinder is going to need to be in the range of 4 to 5 inch diameter. It will take a bit of time to extend and retrace (especially if the tractor is not running wide open) with a guestimate of 10 seconds stroke time (about 16 inches) it might seem slow compared to a self powered engine driven splitter with 2 speed hydraulic system. It will be fine unless you are doing commercial amounts, or Gnarly ash or other ropy hard to split rounds.
To make the remote supply power the lever regulating the remote should be bungied in the direction that supplies pressure to the pressure inlet of the splitter, and the single or double acting control on the tractor valve should be in double acting position, allowing the discharge fluid to return.
