 Timberwolf TW-3-HD Log Splitter

Has anyone used the Timberwolf TW-3-HD Log splitter? I am considering purchasing one for my JD 3720. How do you like it?

 Timberwolf TW-3-HD Log Splitter

They are made about ten miles from me in Rutland, Vermont and I was doing some real searching about a year ago.
Their price was $2000 for the tractor mount Log Splitter and when I talked with them they told me I had to have a minium of 11 GPM Hyrdalic flow for it to function correctly,. my 4115 only has 7.5 GPM. So I ended up buying a stand alone Hor/Ver with a Honda Engine for $500 less and it has more features and seems to be built just as rugged.
I guess it is all Preference. At least with a stand alone, I am able to tow it up to the location, leave it and keep the BH on my tractor which I use to lift the logs and hold them as I cut them into length. So I am happier with my decision.

I thought about buying a pto driven log splitter, my wife talked me into a stand alone splitter, and I am glad she did I can still use the bucket to haul the wood with.

That's a good point. The good thing about a pto splitter is you don't have to worry about another engine to maintain and you can lower it all the way to the ground.

I don't believe there is any splitter better than the Timberwolf, Cheeper YES, but not better. I think you are better off with the stand alone unit as well. With a Tim,berwolf TW-5 you can split over a cord an hour! You can use the machine to keep getting logs to the machine as it eats them quick.

11 gallons per minute is the minimum output required to power a 3-point splitter efficiently. For those of us who own tractors under 40hp, this is not the best option.

However, there is another solution available, which is to mount a pump on the PTO shaft of the tractor, and then use the splitter on the 3-point hitch.

This requires a separate hydraulic reservoir mounted to the splitter, containing about 20 gallons of hyd. fluid. (The reservoir should hold twice as much oil as the output flow from the pump, in order to give the oil time to cool before being recycled through the pump and cylinder.)

The PTO pump, alone, will cost upward of 400 dollars, making this option too expensive for most people.
