I have an American (brand) 4' horizontal splitter that has the 23 GPM Prince PTO pump. I use it with any of my 10 series Fords, and run them at 1000 RPM, so just over 1/2 of PTO speed! Works super for me!
I suspect that you would need to run the tractors at full throttle to get rated flow on the tractor hydraulics!
Edit: one thing to consider is that my cylinder is 4", so it will operate at about 60% of the speed of yours. The 3"x48" cylinder has 338 CID while the 4"x48" cylinder has 603 CID (makes the 4" stronger but slower!

Here's the splitter on the departed 3410 'Bota

I have a setup similar to Dave's. 35T and prince PTO pump. We used it splitting about 9 cord of oak, each at least 36" in lenght. Most cuts were too big for my 20" saw blade to cut all the way around, leaving a couple inches in center to break by dropping with front loader. Also had a gas powered two stage splitter. It was put aside, too weak and too slow.
Split a couple a cords last month, and it took longer to put the splitter on the tractor and drive to the site and back and then take it off and store it, than splitting the wood. Bottom line: Gas splitters are OK for 16"-24" wood and three point splitters earn there money for outdoor furnance length splitting. IMHO

Thanks Wayne. That gives me encouragement that this is a project that is worth doing. Sometimes I get through a project and realize I just wasted my time and it won't save me anything time or effort in the end.

Thanks Dave. I appreciate the pictures. I'm planning on vertical beam to keep it closer to the tractor and hoping that standing the blocks up then working standing up will be easier on my back.
