This Log Splitter works with Category 1 or 2 tractor hitches by hooking up via the 3 point hitch and plugging into the tractors hydraulic system. Our 3-pt log splitter includes stripper plates to prevent the wood from jamming, a cast steel footplate, a built-in log cradle, a removable cutting wedge, and a sturdy ground stand for stability. Just hook-up, drive to the timber and start splitting wood.

Quality Price Value
Bought this new from Rural King. Some rust and scratches from being outside a while but bought it on 12% store rebate so they would give no discount from the store for the minor damages. Just said to use a wire brush on the rusted spots. Pointed out to them you could see where they spray painted black to cover marks on the cylinder. Decided to buy it anyway as those things seemed only cosmetic and wanted one and to take advantage of the rebate.
Hydraulic hoses to hook it to the tractor then cost an additional $150 to have made up at a local implement dealer. Hooked it to a newer 3320 John Deere with rear hydraulic hook-ups but would not work. Called company for customer support and was told they would get back to me but never heard back. After several days and no help from the company, I figured out from other sources that my tractor needed a power beyond kit to operate the splitter at the unit's lever, which cost an additional $400 plus took a couple hours to install.
Thought I had looked into this type of splitter sufficiently before I purchased, but feel I should have just bought the unit with it's own engine as I ended up spending just as much. Between the rust/scratches, lack of help at Dirty Hand Tools, additional costs to operate from my tractor, and time and effort to figure it out, it was not worth it. Not a happy customer due to all these factors

- Q & A
Product QuestionsMy tractor requires that the hydraulic valve on the splitter be "open center" to allow oil to circulate when the valve is in the center position. Is the valve on this splitter open center?Under specs the color is listed as "no". The picture is of a red unit, but I've seen yellow ones being sold elsewhere. I prefer red - is that what will be delivered?I have 100 hp tractor what kind of tonnage would this spliter do and what would be the return rateQuestion by: Eric on Dec 3, 2013 6:04:41 PMHello Eric,
The splitting force/cycle time is dependent upon the cylinder size and psi/gpm of your tractor.
The chart to determine this info can be found on the last page of the manual (link to pdf file listed below).

Answer by: D.J. (Admin) on Dec 3, 2013 6:04:41 PMWhat is the diameter of the cylinder bore? I can then figure out the ton pressure by knowing my tractor hydraulic system pressure.Question by: Steve on Sep 11, 2014 12:49:13 PMHello Steve,
I have reached out to our representative at Speeco and they confirmed the max output rating is 18.8 tons of splitting force at 3000 psi and the cycle time is 5.8 seconds.
