    Might not be meant to happen

    Well my 3point log splitter saga continues. After experiencing a total bust TSC on a county line log splitter I thought the peer horse dual action would be the way to go. However that splitter only comes with an open spool valve and try as I may with tech support my only option would be to find a dealer and buy a closed spool valve or kit. Doesn't seem fair to add the cost.
    After getting some help off the hydraulic thread here I found my tractor has a standby pressure of 2250 psi so I would only get about 13 ton out of a 20 ton splitter. I believe my pump is big enough on the 2640. So I suppose I either have to spend quite a bit more on a pto splitter or a stand alone model.
    I really wanted to use my tractor to run splitter although I know there are two schools of thought on that

    You could buy a hydraulic pump and reservoir to run off your PTO and power the open spool valve you have with the splitter you already bought.

    It's made by Brand hydraulics, I contacted them and they only sell through dealers and the dealer they gave me would not trade open for closed only would sell me a new valve.

    The latest

    Ok here's the latest, I talked to Doug at Ramsplitter and he said I would get about 18 ton out of a 20 ton logsplitters with a 12 sec total time at 2250 psi. He said his reliefs are set at 2200 and nobody adjusts them. He would paint it Johny Green and is close enough I could drive to ill to pick it up.
    Whatcha all think ??
