Is the Tonnage Estimating Chart Fairly Accurate
1. Is the Tonnage Estimating Chart "Fairly Accurate" at the 1st address below from your experiences?
2. Using "How to Calculate Log Splitter Tonnage", at the 2nd address below, I'm getting 4.375 (tons). In my opinion and from the chart my splitter is performing at 9-16 tons.
3. What am I missing?
Gauge Pressure fully extended = 2,500 psi (3,000 psi gauge)
Cylinder Dia = 3.5
Gauge Pressure/Total Pound Force = 8,750
Tonnage = 4.375
Math: 2,500 X 3.5 = 8,750 Divided By 2,000 = 4.375 tonnage
4. Is the line pressure indicating the quality and performance of the pump?
5. Is the 2,000 the value of a ton?
