 3p log splittler

I found an used 3pt log splitter at a local dealer. It is a Kelly KLS24. Is anyone familiar with this unit or other similar models? I don't know what their asking price is yet...

 3p log splittler

I don't know about Kelley splitters, but I've been happy enough with their B600 backhoe. I think of the company as making decent, basic, moderate-priced equipment. However, there usually are some compromises in features to get moderate prices. For example, higher-end splitters may use a regenerative hydraulic circuit to withdraw the cylinder for greater speed while low-splitters may not. I don’t know, but maybe that’s a feature to research. I think all splitters have a pressure release detent on the control valve that automatically shuts the valve off when a high pressure is achieved, but that’s something else to check.

If I were using a hoe regularly for heavy work, I might have bought a higher-end one, but the Kelley hoe works just fine for my use. Their splitters are likely a similarly styled product. You might check at www.northerntool.com for comparisons, but I think of their implements as somewhat lower quality than the lines usually found at tractor dealers.

One thing about log-splitters is that they take fairly high pressures and a lot of flow. Many of them are slow or don't split well when run from compact tractor hydraulics. Of course, a PTO hydraulic pump is an alternative. It might be good to compare the splitter's and tractor's hydraulic specs to get an idea if you'd be happy with the power and speed of operation.

TomG is correct, make sure you have a pump with enough flow to run the splitter. I bought one not realizing how slow mine would run. I don't recall what brand my splitter is off the top of my head, but the speed at which is operates is a function of Hydraulic Pistion Diameter and Pump volume. Mine is a 4" piston (with 24" of stroke). It ran very poorly (slow) on my old Cub Cadet at ~6 GPM, but it does pretty good with my New Holland that is ~10GPM, both had sufficent pressure, the Cub just didn't have the flow rate. I'm guessing most splitters have a 4" Piston, I think if you are over 10GPM in flowrate you'll be OK.
