thinking of getting the northern tool 13 ton logsplitter for a jd 2305 and a jd 4115, has anyone had any experience or comments on this set up?
Thanks Fred

It will work, but will be very slow. The 4115 only has a 5.1 GPM pump, and the 2305 only 2.9 GPM is available to the implements.

thanks for the info Ken, do they make a kit to divert flow from the steering to the implements? or is 2.9 GPM all you get period.

Nope, 2.9 is it...and that will be at around the rated PTO RPM.

I just got a 13 ton log splitter. I have a JD 3520 that gives 8 gpm for implements. I cannot say it's very fast, but that depends entirely on engine rpms. I run it just above idle and barely have time to collect the split pieces while the ram is going up. Then I must put a new piece of wood under the splitter. So IMHO speed is not really important if you are working by yourself.

Fred...shoulda mentioned earlier: Look HERE for a calculator-just plug in your numbers and you can make a decision.

Splitting wood alone sucks.
I make sure I have a helper, otherwise its just not safe when splitting big pieces, because I split on a horizontal splitter, and the heavy pieces fall on your feet and legs, and then you have to pick them up again. I hate the vertical position, because my back can't handle that for very long at all. The lifting off the ground is horrible for anyones back.
