Thank Aarons - that worked
A 20 GPM pump @ 2200 psi. needs 30 HP to run it at max. Theoretically, you would need a 20 gal tank for the pump at min.
Now J_J - again it is my serious lack of hydraulic knowledge that prompts the next questions.
If I have the pump as shown in the link above and a 20 to 25 gal reservoir
1 - how to I get 2000 rpm to the pump in order to get 2200 PSI? (on the Prince or Chiet PTO pumps they fit on the PTO and operate at 540 RPM)
2 - am I right that this pressure then has to be used to power a motor that will generate 25 to 30 HP in order to make my snow blower work
I really appreciate the patience of the experts in helping those of us who don't know.
