First of all I'm new here and thanks for any help you can spare. I have a 1996 JD 770 tractor with a 70 series loader on it. Nice little tractor for me here in Maine, it does every thing I need it too do. My question is how to install or design a way to operate a hydraulic Splitfire wood splitter set up on my 3 point hitch. The horizontal splitter has it's own 2 way hydraulic valve, as the wedge splits in both directions. The splitter project was to help split wood for a friends campground. I bought the John Deere rear mount hydraulic hose outlet kit. Installed it all, hooked up the splitter and you know what happened next...but I didn't until the system didn't work the way I thought it would. Oh I can operate the two valve set up with two people but that's not what I want to do just to split wood.. So there you have it....the "1" issue... and I don't know enough about the hydraulic pump and lines to go furhter with out advice. My dad always taught to me to try first but said "rastus there are a 100 ways to do something, 99 of them are relatively easy and the 1 that's the hardest, that's the way you're going to do it.". I still smile about my dad and that saying at 68. So any advice out there I could use your help.
