Got my remote hooked up on the 8n so I could run the splitter I built. This was the first wood I split with it. Worked great.

Are you hooked up to a front pump?

Very nice! We spent the day hauling wood out of the woods today. We'll split it in the spring and season for 2018-19.

That's something I'd like to do with mine. But I have a good friend who has a splitter we built out of a scrap Wheel Horse garden tractor...hood and all! It works way too efficiently to justify the expense to make my 9n do it.

The splitter started off as a 3 point splitter and I was on my way to turning it in to a stand alone. I found a Paulson front end loader for my tractor and needed to install a front pump to run it more efficiently than the 3 point lever. So I figured why have to buy 2 pumps and have a engine setting around several months out of the year not being ran. So I put a big enough front pump on to run the splitter. And I gain a set of remotes if I ever need to unfold a hay take or anything else than has hydraulics.

That chain coupler worked out nicely. I'm confused by the remote valve on the fender - is that the control valve for the cylinder on the log splitter cylinder or some sort of selector valve for the quick connects????

the valve on the fender is what I control the remotes with. The splitter has its own valve

I'm still confused. How do you use that valve to supply the valve on the log splitter? If it is a single spool control valve which is what it looks like I would expect it to be spring return to center...

It is spring return so i do have to manually hold it in with a bungee cord.

I have a JD #5 three point splitter that I run off my 8n hydraulics. Its not the fastest splitter in the world but never failed to
split anything I put in it. It does use more gas than the 30 ton Husky with a 13hp honda I bought at auction. Consequently it
spends most of it's life in the corner of the barn.

This would usually get left in the woods.


No problem for the splitter
