logsplitter EV conversion
so i picked me up a little log splitter a while ago
right now it has a 5.5 horse honda GX150 on it
i am pretty sure i have a 110volt hot tub motor kicking around
it looks like the GX simply has a flexible spine coupler on the output shaft, which runs a pump which provides the pressure i need to operate the cylinder
so, here is my thought, if i can get a matching coupler on that hot tub motor, i could remove the GX and install the the electrical motor, and not have to listen to the GX roaring
does that sound like a plan, or would the EV not have the balls to spin the pump fast enough ?
the electrical motor is rated at 1.5 HP and spins at 3540 or 1770
