13 GPM 2 STAGE HYD PUMP Brand new, MTE HYDRAULICS two stage HI/LO pressure hydraulic gear pump. Ideal for applications such as log splitters, presses and other equipment where rapid movement of the cylinder at low pressure is required prior to automatically switching to the high pressure mode to meet load requirements. The change from LO to HI pressure is automatic with the LO stage pressure preset at 500 PSI. Minimum of 6.5 HP required for gas engine use.
Displacement: 0.192 cu. in. / rev. HI press. stage 0.839 cu. in. / rev. LO press. stage
Pump Type Gear
Orientation Horizontal or Vertical
Pressure: 3000 PSI max.
Speed: 3800 RPM max.
Flow: 3 GPM HI press. stage 13 GPM LO press. stage
A: This pump does not turn the correct direction to direct-couple to a PTO, nor is it capable of being pulley driven.

I am building a forge press and using a 6" bore, 12"stroke and 3"piston cylinder. I would like to be 2500 psi with a 11 or 13 GPM. I have a 3hp ele. motor 3450 rpm that I would like to use. Can you recommend a pump?
A: With the limited power available, you would be able to drive item 9-7972-7, but none of the other two-stage pumps. 3 Hp electric just isn't enough to get any of the larger pumps to shift into the high-pressure/low flow stage.

out put PSI?
A: The pump is rated to safely produce 3000 psi. If not regulated by a relief valve (typically found as part of the directional control valve), this pump is capable of producing enough pressure to destroy itself.

some pumps are listed vertical or horizontal operation, whats the difference with pump operation position
A: This pump can be mounted either horizontally or vertically. The main things to consider are that it has a flooded inlet, no side load on the shaft and must be supported by the mounting flange (especially in vertical mount).

what will happen if you use a 5 HP engine for this pump? Will it kill the engine or will it just pump less GPM. I plan on upgrading the engine later.
A: It will kill the engine. The combination of flow and pressure in each of the stages is designed to make full use of the HP. So using a less powerful engine than recommended will not work.

My engine turns counter clockwise do you have a pump that will work with my 5.5 Hp engine? I was looking at an 11gpm pump for a log splitter...
A: This pump will be fine for use with your engine. The pump is directly coupled to the crankshaft with a 3 piece flex coupling. The rotation is a matter of perspective. When your view the pump from the engine it will be turning CW.
