    Default Re: PTO Generator 3 point mount??

    I've run my 13 KW PTO generator for many years on a standard old KK carry-all. You're little 9 KW will do just fine. I used a thick piece (1") of plywood to span between the carry-all arms and to mount the generator to. There is plenty of room for the generator pto shaft to come right through the carry-all opening. One thing to pay attention to when running the setup is to adjust the generator drive shaft as close to straight as possible by adjusting the 3-pt top link in or out and setting the lower links accordingly. To help stabilize the setup, I've occassionally slipped a couple of car jacks under the back end of the carry-all arms and lowered the setup (somewhat) onto the jacks, but still the bulk of the load is held by the 3-pt.

    I've run everything in the house off of this, including the large starting loads of the well pump, wash machine, and air conditioner. Yes, you can tell (barely) when one of these kicks on, but it' no more than a little twitch of the setup and the tractor governor stepping up.

    I have a NH TC40D. I think the pto HP is about 32-33.

    I have a kubota L2800 that burns about 1 gallon per hour, I keep 20 gallons of fuel on hand at all times.

    We ran the generator about 5-6 hours per day to warm up the house and to get the essentials done. Usually from about 5pm to 10ish.


    We have geothermal heating so obviously running that was out of the question but we thought ahead and put in a lennox fireplace while we were building which runs on propane and a small fan...It does a pretty good job of keeping the temp tolerable during such events. With the geothermal we have floor heat and a very large supply of hot water...the hot water lasted 4 days without power.

    With Last nights ice storm on the horizon, yesterday I shored up some of the beefier pallets that I had around to get the genny up to PTO level/Loaded it with paving bricks for weight and used my carry-all to put it all together. Hillbilly engineering at its finest (desperate times= desperate measures)...I will post pics later. It actually works very well.

    I was improving my generator setup and took some photos with my phone.
    The plan is to feed the house from the shop and use the engine heat from the tractor to heat the shop while supplying the house and shop with electricity. Also shows the 3 pt platform my generator came on.
    See if this works.
    The two heaters were just to provide a bit of load. I also wanted to see how the tractor managed lighter loads at the higher PTO setting. It didn't like it, too slow an engine RPM at 60 Hz and the operator off seat flip up doesn't work at that PTO setting, only at 540 RPM. I didn't know that before.

    Glad to see that you are venting to the outside. How far does the exhaust extend out the door? 6" er 2'

    That is a 10 foot length of exhaust tube so extends well past the door. Interesting exhaust sound when outside with the doors closed so all you hear is the exhaust. Earmuffs are required when inside with the tractor running at PTO RPM.
    I'm going to make up a short cheater cord so I can easily plug in a 4800 watt construction heater as well as the arc welder. I think it will be able to run the welder for lighter welds.

    I'm sure that this fits under the "no bull" category and it's probably way too

    late to help you. Maybe it will help someone else.

    I've done just exactly what you've asked for - a 9kw mounted to $150

    carry all with a 1/4" plate steel deck for mounting - very heavy and stable

    with no twisting.
