Power steering usually consumes 1.5 to 2 GPM depends on the controller. I use 1.5 GPM and JD 400 'power assist' controller: Power Steering Added to 646a

Most people that build articulating tractors run both geo-roller motors in series. So 8 - 10 GPM. CCI 222's originally had 8.5 GPM pumps in them and later went to a 9.5 GPM pump. Which that 13 HP honda is going to be hard pressed to drive to capacity with the necessary relief setting of 2100 PSI . Calculator I use: Hydraulic Pump Calculations - Womack Machine Supply Company says 14 HP for 2100 PSI at 9.5 GPM. Add the flow for 1.5 gpm at 1500 PSi for the power steer, that's another 1.57 HP.... Sooooo

Welcome to MTF
Better check your facts CASE never made 223 but they did build 222 and 224's
Must of hit the wrong key, right
Why not a Onan engine probably way better then a Honda engine

You are correct. It just needs to be kept in mind that maximum performance is only achieved at maximum speed when climbing a steep slope while pulling a heavy load. At most other times, the wheels will spin before there is a max load on the hydraulics.
