Running a hydraulic and pto splitter at the same time off one tractor?

Recommended Posts

As above, I plan to run my cone and hydraulic splitters at the same time, off my 60hp massey tommorow, is there any reason why I can't? Thanks.

You've not got enough hands?

 

I don't foresee any problems.

I've done pto and hydraulic work at the same time (side mounted grass topper, if you don't keep pumping oil round, its pulls itself back round)

if there's 2 of you splitting knotty stuff simultaneously you'll make that tractor work. hydraulics are very power hungry. I used to run a trailed grass mower with a hydraulic grouper and it was the grouper that killed the tractor

Should just be easy stuff going through when both machines are going. I plan on me using the digger to position the rings in the hydraulic splitter while my mate runs the levers, then when they have been bust down to manageable sizes we can both do easy bits then I can do the knotty bits on the cone while he clears up a bit. It's all 3ft sycamore rings.

What RPMs dose the engine want to be doing for both the machines?

 

id have thought the pto cone would want to be at tick over and the hydraulic splitter would want to be a lot faster
