 Cub Cadet 7360 addiing rear hydraulics

I have a Cub Cadet 7360ss with loader, want to add hydraulic connection to rear of tractor for a log splitter.

Anyone know if there is a kit available, or ideas on how I might do my own ?

Thanks

I believe that is called power beyond. I have that on my Cadet 7275. You should be able to purchase this as a kit from your local dealer or if you have hydraulics knowledge you could piece it together yourself. If you would like photos, I could click a couple with my cell.

There is a way to tap into the power beyond that I think goes to the three point lift arms,and being new at hydraulic stuff I am not sure what I'd be getting into. the only dealer near by is not helpful, and finding a kit online is confusing.
I would like to see the photo's of your system, maby I could see if it would work. Thanks paul

I'll try to get some photos tomorrow. It's snowed in with a 6ft. Tall drift that is about 150 ft. Long.

Thanks for getting back, The snow where you are is serious!
We have nothing to complain about down here. Good luck, and no rush on the photos. Thanks, Paul

I assume you're getting a 3-point-hitch log splitter? It should come with the hydraulic valve for running the splitter cylinder so all you need to do is plumb between this valve and where the hydraulic manifold block is located - the right side just below/behind the engine.

I have a 7305; your 7360ss appears to be the same - the part number on the manifold block is the same in the parts manual, for sure.

There are 3 ports on the hydraulic block labeled P, N, and T - standing, roughly, for Power, beyoNd and Tank. The tractor's main hydraulic pump pushes hi pressure oil out the P port, hi pressure oil coming back goes into the N port and low pressure oil goes back into the reservoir (tank) via the T port. Your front loader is hooked up to all 3. The hi-pressure oil flowing in the N port is used to drive the 3-point-hitch cylinder which raises/lowers your implement.

Assuming you want to leave the loader attached, to add the log splitter, you connect the splitter's input line to the loader's N line. This gets hi pressure oil to the splitter.

The splitter is almost surely to be rigged with a 'power beyond'/open-center valve, in which case when the splitter control valve is in neutral , hi-pressure oil flows through the valve and then should be plumbed to the N port.

If the splitter is rigged with a a closed-center valve (the flow of oil is blocked when the valve is in neutral, the unlikely case), then the return line should be plumbed to the T port and you'll need to arrange a T to send hi-pressure oil to the N port from the 'N' hose from the loader as well as to the splitter.

At a minimum, you'll need to measure and buy 2 hoses that run from the splitter to the manifold area plus a couple of quick-connects (one male and one female most likely). Depending on the way the quick-connects face on the manifold, you may want to get a Tee and add a second, rear-facing quick-connect for the N port.

Thanks, This has been a great help, and much simpler than I thought I'd have to deal with. (and yes the splitter is a three point with a valve control) I believe the valve is an open center type, is there a quick way to check this out before hand? At any rate I just need to get out there and do some crawling around and locating some parts.
Great info!
Thanks Again,
Paul

Cub Cadet Hydraulic manifold block

The only reason to fiddle with the shutoff plate (it actuates a valve inside the manifold when you move it between S and O) is when you are attaching/detaching all hydraulic implements. The 'S' position is used when an implement is attached and sends hi-pressure oil to the P port with the expectation than your implement will return hi-pressure oil to the N port. The 'O' position is used when no implement is attached and connects P to N internally.

--------
As far as figuring out whether a valve is open-center, assuming nothing is hooked to the in/out ports (vs. the ports that go to the cylinder), just blow in it. If you can blow when it's in neutral, it's open-center.

----------
Another comment... The splitter valve is likely to have a pressure relief valve built-in. So does your loader and so does the tractor's hydraulic manifold block. The tractor's is set at around 2100psi, the loader's at around 1500-2000psi, depending on model. Who knows what the splitter's setting is. To get maximum splitting force, you may need to disconnect the loader from the hydraulic circuit by disconnecting the short hose on the loader's P line and connecting it to the input line to the splitter.
----------
Especially if the splitter is new (and thus the cylinder doesn't have oil in it yet), remember to check the hydraulic oil level after you run the splitter a few cycles to purge any air inside. You'll probably need to add a gallon or so if the splitter was empty.

Thanks,The illustrations help clearify the manifold points.
I won't be messing with the O and S positions, as I plan on keeping the loader on all the time.
I do want to be sure I'm clear about running a line from the N port on the manifold to the IN side on the splitter valve,then running a line from the OUT side of the splitter valve back to the T port back to the tank correct?

Also when not in use these lines would then be Quick connected keeping the fluid loop unobstructed ? I will keep an eye on the fluid levels once connected!

With luck an annotated picture of my manifold will appear in a separate post. To hook up your splitter you:
1) disconnect the hose from the loader's valve that's hooked to the N port.
2) connect this hose to the IN line to the splitter
3) connect the OUT line from the splitter to the N port.

"Also when not in use these lines would then be Quick connected keeping the fluid loop unobstructed?"

I'm not sure what you mean. The quick-connects have built-in valves so they shouldn't leak (much) even when pressurized. If things are set up correctly, you'll end up with a male and a female on the hoses attached to the splitter and you can hook them together to keep dirt out when the splitter isn't hooked up. Extra quick-connects on the manifold aren't a problem - you can buy dust plugs for them or just remember to wipe them off before hooking up to them.
