Not sure where to post this question.

I tow this log splitter behind my lawn tractor so I guess this is as good a place as any to ask.

Been all over the inter tubes trying to find out the specs on my log splitter pump.

Its a 1987 MTD 10 1/2 ton "split-it" model 247-642-000. Pump part number is 717-0460.

Can anybody help me find out who the manufacturer of the pump is,flow rate, single or two stage?

Thanks

Check the MTD site. Clean the pump and check for numbers. Northern Tool probably has a direct replacement pump. http://www.northernt...hydraulic-pumps  Good Luck, Rick

How many HP is driving it? It is a 2 stage unit. Most all are sized by engine HP.
There are tons to choose from. What is your concern about the pump? Or are you thinking of buildong something with it?

Pump is driven by a 5 hp b&s. Main concern is availability of a replacement pump to bolt up to the adaptor on the engine whenever I might need to replace it.

A couple times here recently it has just stopped while splitting. No undue noise or chatter and the fluid is good and fluid level is up and correct type. Would like to know mfg and flow rates if indeed it is a 2 stage pump. How can you tell by looking at it that its a 2 stage pump?

Thanks everybody.

By all the sections and its shape and port conffiguration. The mounting is pretty standard. They do this for universitality of apps.

Maybe the spring in the by-pass valve is weak, causing fluid

Does it have a hydraulic filter? If not, maybe something floating around gets in the by-pass valve.
