Dail, I'ma thinkin' it's about 1500 psi, but don't quote me on that.  I'm rememberin' that from when I was hookin' up my MileMarker winch, but my memory don't work too good any more.  I wish I could remember that. :-\

Hi dail h, being a cobbler my self, i've heard of guys putting heavier springs or double springs in the bypass or pressure regulater to increase pump pressure enough to use power steering pumps for woodspliters. i've never done it myself, good luck :)

Although I have not actually put a gauge on one, I have been told that you can get about 4,000 lbs. out of it.   I have one off a 1965 ford stationwagon running the lift one my large bandsaw.

 I thought about the same thing.  My front end guys tell me they are set about 1400psi and start blowing seals at 4000.  Problem is not enough flow :(  Wasn't going to be enough to drive the hyd. system on my mill I built.  I can check specs for sure if ya really need xact #s.

Couldn't you parallel 2 pumps together as long as both pressure reliefs set similarly?

I think ya'd need about 8 of 'em-  the manual says 1.6gpm at 1560psi.   :o

I even went so far as to calculate it if a smaller pulley were put on the best you could get would be about 6 gpm, if you could find a pulley to press on the shaft.

You could make it work, but it would be a slow dump.  Of course, that beats a shovel, any day! :D :D :D

The biggest problem would be adding some fluid capacity.  That little bitty tank only holds a quart or so.

If you can find one, get the power steering pump off of an old combine.  I had one on a wrecker once that I used to run the hydralics on the bed.  I put a clutch off of an A/C compressor on it so I could turn the pump off when I didn't need it.  Worked as good as a store bought one.

I am not sure just what you need in hydraulic pump but I am running a .256 c.i.d. pump off a 4 h.p. honda engine.  This gives me about 4 g.p.m. at 3,600 r.p.m.  I have a remote throttle located by my controlls so I can slow the engine down to reduce the flow.  What I find is that I have plenty of volume for every operation.  My mill has eight hydraulic circuits which does everything hydraulically except the toe board.  I notice that the highest pressure I have is in the actually loader.  I can saw 24" x 24' long. I will get some 1,500 lbs of pressure coming off the rack lifting the log.  I am running 2 ea. 2 1/2 x 12" cylinders.   What I have found is that with too much flow, one has a problem slowing down the feed.
