I wont swear to it but I believe the John Deere splitter is run off a separate pump that runs off the tractor PTO.

Is that splitter a John Deere part or did someone custom make it? That's exactly what I was picturing in my head about trying to do

It was sold by JD. It is called a Model #4 Logsplitter. It has it's own pump, belt driven off the engine.

JC 616:

 

Did a little Google search, and found a topic here at GTTalk:  "Jd #4 Log Splitter". Didn't read it all but it might have some good info. Also found an already sold one on EBay, $1200.

Wow nice find. I think I'll just make my own. Already have a 5" cylinder. Just have to figure out if there's enough hydraulic oil capacity to connect a pump to the front of the tractor or if it needs its own separate tank

I am pretty confident in saying the factory system will not be able to support a splitter.

Well attachments are there for this tractor that uses the hydraulic outlets?

The front attachments are mainly the 54 blade and 49 snow blower, you could also find brooms and other attachments.

In theory it could handle a splitter, it will just be really slow. Also, need double acting cylinders, so the fluid level stays kind of constant.

Blades and blowers are the common users of the front hydraulics. Sweepers and Johnny Buckets are less common, but also use the front hydraulics. I have two of these machines, and must admit they are working classics.

Ok so with this being the H1 model can I mount a rear tiller on it? Since I'm unfamiliar with the JD ways of mounting things it looks like all it has for anything to attach to the rear is a tongue probably just for pulling things with a hitch pin or something

Kind of hard to see the whole rear end right now with the leaf vac attached to it

The John Deere #33 model tiller is the one that fits it, and you also will need the later model rear pto on the tractor to run the tiller.

Those rear weights sell on eBay for $150 to $200 per set of two. You can still buy them new from some John Deere dealers. I don't know that I would sell them, they are good to have, they help to provide traction
