How do you adjust a 2 stage hydraulic pump?

How to Adjust a 2-Stage Pump
  1. Adjust the hydraulic gauge by locating the adjustment screw on the back of the gauge. Use a flathead screwdriver to turn the screw.
  2. Adjust the pressure switch, located behind the hydraulic gauge, by using a wrench to loosen the lock-nut on the switch, then turning the adjusting screw.

Furthermore, how does a 2 stage hydraulic pump work?

Two-stage pumps are typically mounted to small gas or diesel engines. A two-stage pump will first produce high volumes of fluid, moving the cylinder in and out quickly. When the pump receives resistance, a second set of gears will produce high pressures for lifting or splitting.

Beside above, how do you adjust the flow rate of a pump? For every pressure, the pump will only deliver one specific flow rate. Therefore, to control the flow of a centrifugal pump, simply set the output pressure to the point on the P-V diagram that allows the pump to deliver the desired flow rate. The output pressure of the pump is set using a back pressure regulator.

In this way, how do you adjust a log splitter pump?

How to Adjust the Pump Pressure on a Log Splitter

  1. Start the engine on your log splitter as you normally would.
  2. Set the pump lever in the neutral position.
  3. Twist the screw on the side of the pump clockwise with a flat blade screwdriver to increase pressure, according to the scale printed or embossed on the side.

How can I speed up my log splitter?

If you want to speed up your splitter overall, then you'll need a bigger pump. If you do upgrade your pump you may also need to increase the size of your hydraulic tank to prevent overheating of the fluid and possibly the size of your hoses to accomodate the increased flow.
