This depends on the size of saw. It takes about 1.4 brake HP per GPM of flow to drive the hydraulic pump at 2000 PSI. An 11G Simple Saw System needs about 15HP to drive the pump. A 14G Connect and Cut Saw System needs about 20 HP to drive the hydraulic pump. See model information for model specific power requirements.
This depend on the diameter of log, species of wood, how dry the wood is, how sharp the saw chain is, type and volume of bar oil, condition of the bar, and how well the log is held when sawing. Click here to watch videos to get a comparison between models.
The gear type saw motors should run between 4,000 and 5,000 RPM.
You can use a Connect and Cut system on a skid steer if properly mounted and plumbed. When you add a saw to a skid steer the auxiliary flow is at wide open throttle so when cutting you must run the engine speed correctly or the saw will malfunction.
Our saws are designed to be welded down to a steel structure that is able to accept several hundred pounds of load without deflecting. If the log clamp, infeed, log and saw are not rigid the saw will not cut correctly.
All the saws are built to order and will take 2 to 6 weeks to process.
