    From the pics the mods I can see are new engine,pump mount,different hydraulic tank, relocated control valve and added log tables.

    Hey there. I just bought this puppy yesterday, labeled under the Montgomery Wards name, but I was thinking it was a later Didier...not sure if that's the case? It's 10 1/2 ton with 5hp Briggs @ Stratton, I tested it with the knottiest round of pine that I had and it blasted the round to pieces. What say ye experts...Didier?

    Thanks, that is what I thought as it looked too similiar to another Didier that I previously had.

    3.5HP DIDIER.jpg

    Hi,
    Thanks to all who post on these splitters as it has helped me a great deal on identifying and learning about these old splitters.
    I just acquired this splitter and it has a 3.5 hp eng and I didn't see that listed in the spec sheets I have seen here.
    I live in north ga mtns and burn about 2-3 cords a year. and as I'm aging ... the by hand splitting is getting harder by the day .so I am slowly acquiring the "stuff" I need to survive. The moonshine still is next but I figured it would be better to leave that to last......I also purchase some old Poulan saws that I will be refurbishing and have seen a lot of threads on those.
    I was wondering if any of you all could email me the manual that's been mentioned often in this forum.
    Any info is appreciated and hopefully I will be able to help others someway as well...
    Thanks...
    Monte

    @monte498 Wife & Hubby have manuals for the Didier splitter that they share. I was just bringing your request to their attention.

    20170717_205131.jpg 20170717_205139.jpg I recently purchased a Didier splitter and have already put it to use. So far I like it, easier than an axe. The model number is A20AG, but I can't find any info about it online. Would the manual that is being passed around in this thread cover that model? If so, I would greatly appreciate if someone could forward it to me. Just PM me for my email address.

    @Wife'nHubby Do you have a manual that would go with my Didier splitter? Model number A20AG.

    Does anyone know what the GPM is on a John S Barnes hydraulic pump #200879? That's the pump on my Didier 4 foot woodsplitter. The 2spd pump won't shift into low speed/ high pressure anymore and I was looking for a replacement but don't know what size to look for. I see all the earlier posts in this thread that had spec sheets posted can't be seen anymore because the pictures weren't hosted on this site. Thanks for any help you can give me.

    If the splitter has a 5 hp. engine a 11 gpm 2-stage pump will work.
