 3 Pt Splitter or stand alone

I have a JD4300 Hydro. Have a chance to buy a new 3 pt. splitter at a used price. Has anyone used one with a tractor this size and how did it go? I use 100% wood heat and am killing my back with the axe.

If you look back in the records we had a lengthy discussion about this. Most stand alone splitters have less than 8 hp therefore the tractor size is not a problem. It will depend on how the splitter is matched to the tractor pump or whether it has a PTO pump or not.

 3 Pt Splitter or stand alone

From the old discussions, speed of the splitter driven from relatively low gmp tractor pumps is an issue. Somebody mentioned a type of splitter that splits in both directions, which might save a lot of the retract time of conventional splitters. Something like that might be interesting, but a used splitter probably would be a conventional type.

But then, it may have been Peters who pointed out that the wedge doesn't have to move very far to split a lot of firewood that's available, so there's not a lot of retracting to be done. I think it was phrased 'the splitter moves faster than my back loads it. In terms of back work, I think a vertical splitter is easier on the back than a horizontal one, but I havenít thought it through.

 3 Pt Splitter or stand alone

Holy Cats George...get a splitter! I like to swing the 20 pound maul for awhile, especially on the small blocks that split with a single stroke....

Personally, I run a little 5HP standalone. Haven't met anything I can't split yet. It groans a little sometimes on some big knarly red oak crotches, but they just pop. I would not want to be running my tractor all the while to split, and as many have said, the hydraulics can be a little slow....

I have built a little frame around my splitter and can easily lift it up and move it around my pallet forks on my bucket. The forks are wonderful...a new thread coming on those.

So, for me, a stand alone.

George, since you got the tractor you might as well put it to use. I have a badass homemade one that turns a 25gpm
pump with no problem. You can split anything at idle speed faster and more powerfully than any stand alone. I have never had anything close to stopping it. For fun A friend and I put a 3ft dia. oak on it and it just blew it apart. Quite impressive. The only downside is long range transportation. Don't let your 32 horses go to waste.
Email me If you want to see some pictures.
