Have a question for all you experts out there, I'm looking at buying a log splitter for my 49 WD, that would run off the tractors hydraulics. I have only one line out to the back, but the splitter requires a return, so I would have to install a return back thru the fill/check plug. Thats not a problem, question is the splitter is an open center system, which I assume pressue is bypassed thru the valve (in the rest postition) back to the tractor. Then when the valve is moved one way or the other, fluid whould run to the cylinder, here's where I'm worried, if the tractor's hyd. lever is in the full up position with the rams for the 3pt up, isn't the pressure dropped down to about 35 psi by the unloading valve, resulting in an inopereative log splitter? Has anyone ever installed and used a log splitter on a WD or WD45 using the tractors hydraulics? Does it work well?

The tractors hydraulic system does not lend itself to be used on these kinds of systems very well. The system pressure can be at around 3800 psi and will blow hoses and cylinders if you chose low pressure stuff and its reservoir capacity is very small for what you need. Overflowing the reservoir results in oil going out the vent in the foot clutch area and getting on the foot clutch. The best way to go would be a pto driven unit with its own reservoir and control valve like the systems used for hoists on grain truck dump beds.

Some things that you need to know, the wd's work on high pressure and low volume. Yor cylinder will move pretty slow.
