    There were some questions on another thread about the throw of my old splitter. I measured today while setting up to split some tomorrow & here are the results:

    In the open position, measuring from the middle wing to the foot it's 21"

    In the lowered position it's 13"

    I looked in my owners manual & my JD provides 16 gpm at 2250 psi. My splitter uses a 4X8 cylinder so the cycle time is reasonably fast, in fact it's faster than I can usually reposition the round:

    Here's the splitter at roughly half stroke:

    Three quarter stroke:

    And full stroke:

    That is a cool splitter. Hydraulics and the lever combined in one simple package.
