The diameter is 1/2 inch. I am not sure of the thread pitch, however the prefab hoses with threaded ends work fine.

With a 5 x 24 cylinder, the largest pump we recommend using is a 16 GPM 2-stage pump. Using a larger pump and motor will only increase cycle time, and will not create any more power. With a 16 GPM, any gas engine with at least 8 HP(240cc) will work. See links below.

Question

will my set up work for this kit?

I have an old skid loader which delivers 15.5 gpm and a max pressure of 1750 psi. Will this kit work with my set up? How many tons of force will this kit develop? I also have a 2020 prince detent valve that I purchased from you. Will that work with this set up?

With your skid steer only producing 1750 PSI, this NorthStar splitter kit cylinder would be splitting logs with only approximately 17 tons of force which is not enough for hardwood logs.

This kit and the 2020 valve will operate using your skid steer, however, it may not meet your needs for power.

Yes, this kit could be used with a pump that produces 28gpm. However the pressure should not exceed 4000 P.S.I.

Northstar Expert
No, this NorthStar 4-way splitter kit does not have a ton rating until you add your hydraulic pump.

The GPM (gallons per minute) of your select pump will determine the tonnage that it will support, for example a 16 GPM pump will produce approximately 30 tons.

The larger or more surface area the cylinder has for hydraulic fluid... the more tons the cylinder will support.
