I have seen the posts about using the tractor"s own hydraulics to run a log splitter, and the issue that they are slow.
Has anyone used the Prince PTO pump to run a splitter?
Here"s a link.

I run a Prince pump from the PTO on a Farmall Super A to run a homemade vertical log splitter. It works fine at about half throttle. Only use it on blocks that are too large to get on the other splitter.

The PTO pump is too big for splitting and too small for retracting. You want an engine speed dual flow splitter pump.

I have just looked at the page for the Pumps that you sent. The output of the Pumps looks a bit on the high side for a splitter I would have thought. You would need to see what oil flow the splitter manufacturer recommends otherwise the operation could be very "touchy"...John

Using an external Pump is obviously the answer but they use the tractor hydraulics because it does not cost anything other than piping them up. The splitting cycle will be slow on these old tractors because they were never designed to Pump large quantities of oil, primarily they were just for Draft Work with cultivation implements then loaders were necessary and then trailers, they could handle these OK but it is always the same, you get what you pay for...John

I have not, but I know one thing that will help the others with your question is which tractor do you have?

Oops, sorry. It's a 35 with the Z134 gas engine.

Your tractor should have about 4gpm at 2000 engine rpm, it maybe slightly more depending on which pump it has.....John
