Is it not obvious that this is quickly becoming a matter of urgency for me? ha
So, I shall offer my apologies for failing to provide more specific info about the splitter, of which I should've known to do so.
I did have a neighbor come over .. and he apparently knows far less about it than I!! However, I sensed that he may have been more afraid that I may would attempt to recruit him to do all my wood splitting for me. I must give him proper credit for at least putting forth a good 'air' to try to assist me. So, that's what I've been doing just about the entire time. And now, I've missed the splitter gurus'. Just my luck.
This is something that I shall have to learn to do, one way or the other .. and shall/will not expect nor want anyone to do it for me. I can and I will master this. Just hopefully before the winter.
You guys have got it on the ball tho'. The splitter is not PTO driven .. as I'd stated earlier. There are hydraulic hoses that must be connected to some other hoses, on the kabohta tractor. I am unsure as to which hose associated to the splitter must connect to which hose on the tractors 'ports'.
Will I risk blowing out any gaskets or seals, or just simply 'blow up' anything, on either the splitter or the tractor - should I happen to connect the hoses incorrectly? I have no desire to risk doing damage to the machinery, or to myself, for that matter. ha
I know that there is a return hose, and then the other hose, that makes the controls work correctly on the splitter. It stands to reason, that the hoses could be crossed .. and the splitter not function correctly, or not at all.
If I can manage to get the hose connections mastered, I shall have no difficulty in working the splitters controls. I'm most confident that the aspects of the functioning of the splitters controls will be a virtual breeze. And am much aware of the many dangers associated in watching out for myself and my hands, in particular.
I'll be checking back again in the morning. Maybe some of you have been up half the night also. Surely things will begin to ease up for me, one of these days. Things could certainly be far worse, right ?
Many many thanx to you all.
