    Log Splitter for 2305 3-point hitch

    Does anyone have any ideas on a good splitter for the 3-point hitch for a 2305. I looked at the DR model (mainly because it has the dual action split) but it seems as though the 2305 might not have enough power for it!

    A couple things come to mind:

    "Power" is a function of PSI and surface area in a cylinder. "Speed" is a function of GPM.

    Here are the specs for you 2305, I placed in bold the important numbers:
    Type Open Center
    Pump Rated Output, gpm (L/min.) 5.2 (19.7)
    Steering 2.3 (8.9)
    Implement 2.9 (10.8)
    Pump Type Gear
    Maximum Operating Pressure (PSI) 1987
    Draft Control Type Select Control
    Remote Control Valves Available 2

    Now, once you know the cylinder size on the splitter you want to use you can calculate Power and Speed here: http://www.surpluscenter.com/techhel...name=hydraulic Select the Force and Speed Calculator on the left and input your numbers. This one is good also: http://www.baumhydraulics.com/calculators/cyl_calc.htm

    A typical splitter has a 4"x24" with a 2" rod cylinder.

    The short answer is Yes, it will power it, but it will be slow and a little underpowered. You wil also have to run the 2305 at near full throttle so the hours may pile up quickly.

    Another Option

    Here is another solution that a 1026 (same size as a 2305) owner came up with. Looks like it worked out pretty well. Something to think about anyway.
