I'm thinking about the hydrualics that I'll need on my splitter. I want to run the Barnes-Haldex 28 GPM two stage pump.
Anyway, I saw in Northern that they have a two way detent valve that was 3/4" inlet, outlet and working ports, but it is only rated to 25GPM. Is this really a concern? the pump will probably never run at full speed (I believe that they are rated to 4000 RPM) or maybe Northern just low balls the figrue.
Also, to get the most tonnage, I want to run 3000 psi max. Does anyone know where to get this? The most I see is 2750 psi rating.
Not related to hydraulics, but in constructing a log splitter, I'd assume that you can do most of the welding with a standard Lincoln AC-225 buzz box, correct? I'm not the best welder, but this is what I have, and didn't know if a MIG set-up is better. Thanks a lot
