 Wood Splitter for 4310

When purchasing my 4310, I found that JD doesn't make wood splitters. I'd like to get a medium-duty 3-pt splitter for household firewood. I see Northern Tool and Equipment (northerntool.com) has a horizontal and a vertical/horizontal model -- but it's not clear to me what else is needed to make it work on my tractor. Any help -- or other suggestions -- would be greatly appreciated!

BTW, my 4310 has Dual + Third SCV's, and Power Beyond.

you will need hydraulics for your wood splitter, so does your tractor have a remote spool

This is an idea if you wanted to make use of the FEL to mount the splitter.

In my opinion, you are far better off with stand alone gas engine powered log splitter. They are cheaper and puts a LOT less hours on your tractor, not to mention the potential of introducing contamination into your hydraulic system. On the other hand no extra engine to preserve of maintain. If you don't mind the extra hours on your tractor, its definitely an option.

sshuma your power beyond is plenty to run an average size splitter. I really do not have a preference for a 3ph they are all about the same. Now if you build your own that is another topic.

I am building a large splitter and intend to run it from the power beyond for a while. Murf has a cool idea so I am shopping for a small 2-3 cyl diesel with a BIG pump.

Good luck

harvey you might try a forklift or skidsteer slavage yard. Most of them have large hydro pumps.

Power Beyond Kit for 4310 (etc.) tractors is LVB25085 (previously priced at $331 CDN, but now marked OBSOLETE and no price available)

I am trying to order one for my tractor so I'll see..
