straight talk. Well, I can build a tank relatively
easy but I see the Surplus place in NE has them for
$100.00. I am not sure of the tank or PTO size I
need. I see they vary in GPM and I assume that means
the more GPM the faster the log split or whatever
will run. I am still thinking about a 3 pt hoe and
most of them come with a pump. I installed a Saginaw
3 pt on the M months ago. Appreciate the inputs,
helps a ton.
Remember when you are looking at pumps, they are rated at a particular RPM, so you need to take that into consideration. Most pumps are rated at 1800 or 2000 rpm so with an M running a slower speed and driving off the crankshaft, you won't have the rated flow. I have a 240U with a crank driven pump and I am a firm believer in live hydraulics. If you've used them on your 300, you will miss it if you don't go that direction.
Not sure you will need tospend $900 if you already have the mount for a crank driven pump. Northern Hydraulics has them for less unless you get really extravagent. You need one with a keyed shaft and not a spline so you can lock it up solid with the coupler.
