If you need to buy new hydraulics like pumps or motors or cylinders what is your best shopping source?  Still thinking about a wood processor or a big powerful fire wood splitter without breaking the bank!

I've bought from surplus center and had a good experience, the parts have lasted a few years so far.

I purchased my hydraulic parts from Surplus Center for my splitter when I was 17 years old. It is still going good and so am I and I'm 62!

Very impressive! Those parts are holding up great.
I cant decide if I should build a huge splitter, or a huge splitter I can later incorporate into a processor! Still thinking about engines, pumps, cylinders, wedges, etc... Dont want to undersize it, but cant spend a fortune either.
Thanks

I have used both Surplus Center and Spliteze with no complaints. I still shop around to know prices for hoses, etc . I generally avoid used hydraulic components. MY engine purchases have come from all over the map. Amazon sources have been good.

I also bought from splitez.  

I like the 28 gpm pump I got from them.  (Still going strong)

I also bought this pump from Harrier in the UK:

https://www.ebay.ca/itm/22GPM-Hydraulic-Log-Splitter-Two-Stage-Pump/293019324459?hash=item443950102b:g:TckAAOSw3gJZMdvg

It worked well for some time but eventually I had trouble with the input shaft failing on it.  I believe my connector to the flex coupling was out just a shade and this caused the input shaft to fail.  The shaft seems quit small (in diameter ) for the load it carries - beware of that. 

I think the 28GPM  cast iron (concentric/Haldex knock off) is the way to go.  For the price of it it lasts a long time if you keep it cool and well fed with oil.

I built mine as well.  18 hp, 28 gpm 2 stage pump.  5 x 32 inch cylinder 8x8 inch H beam.  I wanted it to look professional. so I paid more but hauled it to the hydraulic shop and had them make custom hoses.  one came out a half inch too long, and they remade it and not extra charge.





shopped all over.  the odd sized cylinder was a special order not picked up,  new motor (local saw shop matched price at NT), car exhaust so you can talk over it. (O'Reilies).  pump and connectors online.

I think it might have taken me 20 odd years to accumulate enough junk to build mine .Then about 4 days to build it .The hydraulic components  came from Surplus Center .It's  heavy duty with I think a 70 some pound to the foot piling beam,2" thick butt plate and a 5" by 20 " Parker -Hannifin super duty cylinder .I can split a tad over 24" .I've never had a problem with the hydraulic stuff .pump,valve etc.My Lawdy that thing is heavy .I have a cable using the cylinder to tilt it up and a boat winch to lay it back down .
A lot of talk about cycle time. This one I only run about 2/3 throttle and in horizontal it can out run me .Then again I'm not 25 years old any more .--well part of me says I still am but part of me says i'm not .The second part wins the argument. ;)
