Three-point log splitter hookup

Postby MizzouBeach » Fri Sep 11, 2020 5:52 pm

So, I just bought a 3-point mounted log splitter at an auction, and I need to know how to hook it up to my YM2210. Any help on this?

Being a cheapskate here is my solution believing you have a loader. I would buy two long hoses, ad quick disconnects to the curl outlets on your loader valve. Determine which way you want to bungee the loader control valve. Establish which hose is then the outlet and hook that hose into the inlet side of your splitter control valve and the other hose to the remaining openings. You are then set to go by pulling the curl the proper direction and bungee it open. At that point your splitter valve will control flow.

You may be disappointed in splitter speed but maybe your like me and in no hurry.

This sight has very reasonable hoses most any length you want. https://www.surpluscenter.com/shop.axd/ ... iption+asc


Hope this makes sense to you. I have never done this and offer no warranties on my advice and proceed with caution. :D

Thanks, Winston. I was concerned about the splitter speed, because the loader seems to move slowly. I was wondering if there was any way to speed it up by putting some kind of (whatever the opposite of a reduction gear is) on the pump. Step-up gear?

Nope, I don't think so.

So, how about an outboard pump, such as this:

Would something like this work?

As long as you get a pump with a 1-3/8" 6 spline, then yes it would work if you have enough hp. I would think at 22pto hp you would have sufficient but would sure ask the question before buying.

Do you have any info on what your splitter requires for flow and pressure? Manufacturer, model number?

This is an older splitter and the labels are faded white, but I did find another label that says it's a Brave Industries splitter.

Could I approximate the flow needed by measuring the diameter of the cylinder and deducting a certain amount for the cylinder wall thickness?

Here is a sight showing gpm needed on two sizes. Yours might be one of the two. https://www.braveproducts.com/logsplitters/index.html

If you are smart enough there are all kinds of formulas out there for hydraulics, not sure I'm smart enough. :shock: https://logsplitterplans.com/calculator ... ulator.htm
