3 Point 20 Ton Horizontal Tractor Log Splitter

Our 20 ton (3PT20H) wood splitters for tractors made by Ram Splitter have become a popular choice for the tractor owner who wants to use their tractors existing hydraulics to power this splitter. Just hook up to the auxiliary outputs and start splitting firewood.

The standard pins we use are category 1 but can be changed out to 2 or 3, anything else you will have to change out to match your tractor. The hose ends (connectors) are not included. Top link pins or anything else that is related to your tractor for hardware are not included. All connections including hoses are included with PTO kits.

It is recommended that you have a flow rate of 7.5GPM or higher for this log splitter. If your tractor is not properly equipped you do have a choice to run the PTO kit (costs extra) which is self contained and includes a PTO pump. Tractor required to be 25hp or higher to run PTO kits. Please see options. Instead of displaying several listings with various options we have decided to let you customize your splitter!

This log splitter is fully customizable with several options:

  • Color Choice - At no additional cost you get to choose your color: Black, Kubota orange, John Deere green or Ford blue.
  • PTO Kit - PTO (Power Take Off) kit runs completely off your PTO on your tractor. There is no need to worry about any of your hydraulics as this system is self contained which includes a tank and a 21GPM PTO pump. Hook up the pump to the PTO, fill the tank with fluids and your ready to split wood. This PTO pump is designed for 540RPM at the PTO.  25HP min tractor required.
  • 4 Way Wedge - Split logs into 4 pieces. 4 way wedge just slips over the existing single wedge. (Can slide on and off quickly, choose 4 way wedge option to see picture) 4 way wedge will reduce opening size by 3". Split one log once instead of 3 times to get 4 pieces.
  • Log Cradles - These cradles are welded on the beams on each side of the opening between the wedge and the push plate on the cylinder. This eliminates the need from having to hold the log into place with your hand.
  • Opening Size - The standard opening size on this unit is 26". The cylinder stroke is 24" making it a 4" x 24" cylinder. Looking for a bigger opening for that wood boiler or stove that can take larger pieces? We offer a 4" x 30" (32" opening) stroke cylinder.

This log splitter can also come in a horizontal / vertical configuration where you can split both horizontal or vertical. Please see the 3PT20HV listing.

See options above the big green "add to cart" button for pricing and pictures. As you select them it will built and price your splitter as you go! Questions? Feel free to contact us at 888-706-2434 for no hassle no pressure help and advice. We are here to help.

3 point splitter with pto attachment

Very pleased with the splitter and I feel 3 weeks was well worth the wait. Highly recommend

Fine product

It took a few weeks for me to need the splitter I bought but it hooked up as expected. Ten minutes in parts came out of the back of hydraulic control valve, it was still functional if you fiddled wit the lever so I finished up what needed done. Called Woodsplitterdirect next day and they turned it over to the manufacturer. The manufacturer called within minutes and based on pictures I sent they determined I was only missing the snap ring since I had found a metal disc on the ground. Promised to send a new snap ring priority mail, a week later I picked one up at hardware store and still have not seen the one promised. This was a minor issue and easily fixed for under a dollar but had it been a bigger issue I have to wonder if the manufacturer would be responsive. The distributor Woodsplitterdirect was on top of their responsibility and I would certainly recommend them. The product works well now and is well constructed, overall satisfied with the product I just hope I don’t need more support from manufacturer

Stacy, Just wanted to let yo...

Just wanted to let you know the log splitter has arrived and is good condition with not any damage in shipping. I am very pleased with it"s overall design and quality of construction. All I really had to initially go on was the photo and now seeing it first hand I am very pleased with it. The welds appear heavy and strong, and there do not appear to be any weak aspects of design. Bottom line I am a very pleased customer! Finally, if you are ever in Virginia you are always welcome for a visit and I promise not to put you to work splitting wood. Thanks again for your help and selling such a quality product!

20 ton 3-pt splitter arrived in great shape. Got hooked up easily to my 50 HP tractor and works fantastically well. Splitting mostly large pieces of
cottonwood some too heavy to pick up by myself and the splitter goes through them like butter even those that are full of knots. Very pleased. Thank you.

20 ton splitter arrived today-...

20 ton splitter arrived today--shipped before expected and arrived even earlier than expected. I ordered online, got a confirmation quickly, and shipping information soon thereafter. Had it mounted on our tractor in about 1/2 hour. It's an old Ford 3000 rated at 5.5 gallons per minute. At just over idle, with two of us working, 20+ inch logs, 12" in diameter, one splitting, one stacking, the stacker could just barely keep up with the splitter. This machine is well beyond expectations and works fine with a smaller tractor than you suggest would be necessary. Nice product!
