How is everyone, having a good spring, see threads on gardening and mowing, after a very bitter cold and long winter it makes my heart happy to see these threads.
Have been under high stress for past two months, hoping things calm down a bit so i can return.
Have several questions to ask those who has been down this road before and those who know and understand hydraulics better then me.
I am thinking of adding a hydraulic system to my little Allis B-10, i see and know about the OEM system for the Landlord series but im thinking of going a bit bigger with the hydro pump to spin hydro motors on stationary units.
As an example to start off, my chipper/shredder is currently powered by a aluminum 190402 series Briggs 8 hp so i have a hp figure, Allis is powered by the 9 hp cast iron Briggs 23.
To operate a lift cylinder is the easy part, my biggest question is can i mount a pump big enough with enough flow and high enough pressure to spin a hydro motor with good torque that is equivalent to the 8 hp gas engine to spin the chipper/shredder ?
I can not find the gross torque rating for the 190402 engine so im going to guess it around 10 to 11 lb in.
My friend has a Toro 5100D Greensmaster he is parting out, each of the reels has it's own little hydro motor, i did some looking and could not find the flow rating of the motors but they look very heavy duty for it's size and can be had very cheaply along with lift cylinders, a small one for the Allis B-10 and the slightly longer one for the garden trailer.
What do you guys think ? would i be wasting my time and money to try this ?
