So, I'm pretty competent with my welding.

Do you think it would be realistic to try to learn some hydraulics to be able to build a version of the hydraulic arm on pic related?

I was thinking using guidelines from the machines on opensource ecology as a starting point along with reading some books and manuals on hydraulic systems.

Anyone have any experience with diy hydraulics? even something simple like a log splitter?

Hydrolics aren't too complicated for diy, but they are very expensive. Just start looking at some of the parts you need and decide if you want a 20k robot arm.

I work with hydraulics doing heavy equipment work. That trailer scheme in your is the only way you are gonna pull it off, a four wheeler isnt gonna have a heavy enough body or suspension for the leverage/weight. It would flip. Putting a pump on your fourwheeler is easy, but anything hydraulic is hi force, I dont think the frame is cut out for it. You gotta have outriggers with even the smallest ditch witch tractors to do any real digging or lifting. What small pistons you could mount prolly wouldn't be worth a fuck

The steel ain't cheap either.

The cheapest option would be to go to a machinery wrecker and pull everything off an old backhoe or just buy an old tractor backhoe attachment.
