With a big enough cylinder bore it will split just about anything but the cycle time would be in minutes and not seconds.


Yeah I think it would just be better to make one that you pull around. I got big hydraulic cylinder and a good running 6.5 horse engine. I'm a welder/fabricator by trade so the rest comes fairly simple.

Well good. Now I know what I'm looking for. Those 3 point hitches ain't cheap. Wonder how hard it would be to build your own

There are plans for a three-point floating around somewhere, I'll see if I can find the link.

 

They are on "the other site" WFM's file section. http://www.wfmfiles.com/

I had to remove a / from the end of the link. The 3-point plans are about halfway down.

So correct me if I'm wrong but if I found the stuff from a 300 series with front and rear hydraulics I can make mine an H2 so to speak? Or can I just add rear hydraulic outlets to my H1?

The handles and valves varied based on the production date of the 300 or 316K.  If you have pics I can tell you if they will work.  You will also need the lines that connect the valve to the pump.  I ended up using a pump to valve line from a 317 but don't know which one.

I seen em on eBay. H2 conversions but it didn't dawn on me that I could probably do that cause what's the point of 2 hydraulic outlets up front unless you have a loader am I right?

And I've been reading that the Tru Power tires are smaller in diameter than the turfs. 23x10.50-12. If this is true would the mower deck be a pain in the neck to get level? Really liking the look of the V61's up front and these Tru Powers in the rear. I plan to use this all year round even for mowing.

The H-3 system allows you to control the right front, left front, and deck lift independent from each other (each has a lever)

 

The H-2 shares one of the front ports with the mower lift.  

 

That being said, if you have the space to work with you could hook up the valves about any way you want.

According to Carlisle's website, the Tru-Power 23x10.50x12's are 23.3" mounted diameter. The same size Turf Smart tires are 22.8" mounted, so the Tru-Powers are a bit taller. You may be hearing about the Deestone ag tires, which are supposedly shorter than Tru-Powers. The general consensus is that the Deestones are close to 2" shorter than the Carlisles.

Oh ok. I thought it would be just add a rear hydraulic hook up then you would have one in the front and one in the rear

That must have been what I was reading about cause they kept saying 2" shorter

You can do that too.  There are kits for H1 machines to add rear ports too.   It's a matter of how things are hooked up. Here is the kit and note the machines covered
