  • Adding hydraulics to 641
  • I saw a Ford hundred series drive by the other day that had several hydraulic hoses coming off the rear of the tractor. I have a 641 and am wondering what it would take to add something to my tractor to run a log splitter? Thanks for your help. Gary

  • It's generally done by installing remote hydraulics on your tractor. You can see one example in the Accessories manual that we have in our Manuals / Accessories library (click link below to download it). We should have more manuals posted on remote hydraulics in the near future.

    That said, I'm not sure that you will be happy running a log splitter from your tractor's hydraulics - it's gonna be pretty slow. If you already have a splitter that is set up for a 3-point mount and you just need to get it operational, then the remote hydraulics setup will get you splitting. If you haven't purchased a splitter yet, my choice would be to get a 20 ton horizontal/vertical splitter that I could tow to the work site. A 5hp B&S engine will operate the splitter faster.

  • Ed :I'm unable to download the manual. Under accessories library could I find it under another heading? My wife and I are in our 70's so how much would the splitter be slowed down, maybe it'll work at our speed.? Gary

  • Ed: I found that if I click on the [PDF]instead of the title the manual comes up. Any help or info on the speed of the hydraulics? Thanks, Gary
