Hi guys,

 

I picked this up a few months back for $50.00. Everything you see is what I have for it. The reel mowers are gone and any sheet metal or covers that may have had identifying info on it is gone. I got the engine to turn over by jumping the starter and supplying power to the coil. I need to get a rebuild kit for the carburetor. It won't stay running and I noticed the bowl gasket was also missing. Why do I always find "such great buys?!" It has a 14 horse Kohler that drives a hydraulic pump. It supplies power to everything but the steering. That is manually controlled by cables. It needs tires, or tubes. I may try to convert it to a log splitter if the pump has to capacity to do so. I have plenty of mowers, and hey, I don't have the reels anyway. Does anyone know what model this is and if the pump has the output I would need? I also want to find an old bale elevator and run it off of one of the other hydraulic motors. split and load with one machine....if the output is there. We will see. I also need a hydraulic filter for it, as it was also missing when I got it. Any help identifying this thing would be greatly appreciated! Hopefully the pump is good. If not, I know the engine was worth $50.00.

 

Thanks!

Are you thinking of just driving up to the wood pile, splitting the wood, use an elevator to load the wood into a truck, then drive away?

Sounds like a plan!

Good luck, and keep us posted.

 

Log splitters usually have a 2 stage pump: 1st stage is quick, and the 2nd stage is the power. There are better explinations, but this is the short version.

I'm not an expert in hydraulics but with 14hp and if the mower deck was run by a hydraulic motor you should have enough capacity for a log splitter.  You could use that as a portable hydraulic power pack. One thing that comes to mind is that you may need to add a larger reservoir for a splitter due to the large cylinder volume.

That's pretty much the idea. I'm 6 shades of lazy and full of ideas.
