    Will This Log Splitter Fit a 1025r

    I don't understand hydraulics that well, and I have yet to use my 3-Point Hitch for anything (still in box).

    So, can anyone tell me if this log splitter will work on my 1025r? Log Splitter

    Here is the short explanation of requirements:
    "The Log Splitter uses hydraulic hoses on your tractor and quick-connect fittings fit to the hoses on your tractor. Tractor requirements are for a Category 1 hitch, between 25 and 65 horsepower. 2500 PSI is recommended and 9 gallons per minute is ideal."

    I am no expert, but it's always been my understanding that these 1 series may be able to run a 3PH splitter, but it's going to be slowwwwwww. I am sure some others will be along shortly for a better answer.

    Yup. They say "2500 PSI is recommended and 9 gallons per minute is ideal."

    Your 1025R only generates 2000 PSI and pumps 3.5 gallons per minute for implement use.

    Will it work? Yup. But it will be slooooooowwwwwwwwww......

    It will be very slow. You pump operates at about 6.3 gpm according to tractordata.com which is about right for a SCUT. You have plenty of PSI just not a fast flow rate. You are at the very low end of the HP requirement. That is a massive log splitter for a small tractor although based on the specs your three point will pick it up. You can get a 25 ton splitter that operates with its own engine for just under $1k at TSC. I would say for most wood you really don't need much more than a 22 ton. When I have rented a splitter it was 22 ton and it handled all the oak I could throw at it and then some.

    You also need some hydraulics plumbed to the back of the tractor to hook up the splitter hoses. That is several hundred dollars to install.

    I have always thought a about tractor mounted splitter but my research indicates their cycle time tends to be slower than stand along splitters and takes up my tractor for log splitting vs using my grapple to go get logs from my woods. Everyone's situation is different though. Good luck with your decision.

    The Tractordata.com info is correct but 2.8 gpm of that is dedicated to the power steering system - even when you aren't going anywhere...

    I have a stand alone splitter with a Honda engine and it was around 1000$. I like it because I can use my endloader to move logs around. If you were powering the splitter with the tractor your tractor is tied up. I use my endloader with my "Bolt On Hooks" and chain to move logs. also with a stand alone unit you can stand it up on end and split big logs you cant pick up. Mine is a 25 ton Brave unit.

    The 22 ton Huskie splitter from Tractor Supply is what I have and it has held up very well and splits everything I have ever cut. I absolutely needed my front end loader with forks to position some 36" Oak rounds last summer. I use my three point ball or the backhoe bucket to move the splitter around. Highly recommend separate machines.

    If were me , I would purchase a model wood splitter that has it's own motor to run the hydraulic pump. This way it will keep the hours off of your tractor and be cheaper to operate.

    konakid, I've got to go along with the others and say, for less $$ you can get a 22/25 ton model with it's own power and hydraulics. I see in the link you posted that DR offers "free shipping", I bet that doesn't include HI...

    If you tie up the tractor with a tractor powered splitter, you can't use the FEL to help you out.

    If you don't mind me sharing my opinion, look for a splitter that can split both horizontally and vertically. Also, after using mine a while, I realize it's backwards. My cylinder pushes the log into a wedge. I think I'd rather have it so the wedge travels and the log is stationary. There's less reaching to grab split logs, and a table or structure to catch the splits would be closer to the operator. ... Just my 2¢. Good Luck!
