No, not good. When the piston completes the return stroke, the spring won't know enough to release the handle. The system will sit there constantly popping the relief valve and heating the fluid.

I thought of an auto kick-off but decided I didn't need to spend the extra money considering I already had a number of Cub Cadet valves in stock .. (been buying em for a couple years for projects that are rattling around in my brain). Time is also not a consideration for me as with my medical issues I have to pace myself anyways. This was never an exercise in building the fastest splitter around.. I am a lot slower than I used to be and slow is okay by me With me holding the valve in the reverse position I get to take a breather for a couple seconds. Oh, it really isn't that slow either, it is almost equivalent to say any typical 5 hp splitter you can rent such as the ones below:
