Welcome Sodbuster
I think your going to find that 16 GPM two stage pump in not going to run a hyd motor for a chain saw very well. I run a Dynapower piston motor for my saw motor running 20 GPM  single stage pump running it with a 40 HP Kohler and it gives that motor a work out. Hyd driven chain saws on processor take a lot of money to set them up to work good. If I was building one today I would belt drive the saw or better yet just use a chain saw on a guide system. Look up the BT6870 wood processor that Gearbox built. Its a nice processor with a limited amount of hyd running the processor. Good luck on the build.
