how do i know if my splitter hydrolics are going into the second stage im hearing about? The reason i ask is because i was also told i shouldnt be able to stall the engine at all because of the second stage and a bypass when splitting nasty stuff. Im splitting alot of ash right now and in some of the knotted and or twisted wood i can really bog the engine or somtimes stall it. 22 ton huskee. just bought it 2 days ago at tsc.
