    Default Need help with PTO adaptor- Tractor doesn't have a pin hole on shaft?

    Hey everybody... my first post here. Have been lurking awhile and soaking up info, using search function a lot. Beginner farmer/tractor person so hopefully I can get a little slack...

    Ran into something that I hope is easy to fix.

    I have a new LS XR 3135 HST tractor. Ended up picking up a used Woods RM59 finish mower to add to my other implements.

    The Woods finish mower female PTO shaft fits fine on the LS (1 3/8, 6 groove) but doesn't have the sleeve quick connector (as my new brush hog does), it takes a pin.

    The male PTO shaft on the LS does not have a hole to accept the pin.

    I found an old thread with a similar issue (yes, i used the search function!):

    http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/a...nectors-3.html

    It talks about drilling the PTO shaft which I REALLY want to avoid.

    I found the following on Agri Supply:

    Over Riding Clutch 1-3/8" 6 Spline Female and Male | Agri Supply 1671

    Will that female end work like the "sleeve" connector on my rotary mower (basically a ring I pull back to attach/detach the rotary mower)? The hole in the male end of the adapter looks to be exactly what I need.

    Thanks in advance.

    The female end looks like it needs a pin as well. Another option might be to replace the entire (or half) of the PTO shaft with one that mates up.

    This will work, it's not an over running adapter either, prob have to shorten your PTO shaft if you use an adapter like thisNeed help with PTO adaptor- Tractor doesn't have a pin hole on shaft?-img_0734-png

    PTO shaft is probably cheaper than a slip clutch. The slip clutch is usually mounted on the mower end of the shaft not the tractor end.

    Thanks for the replies. MM... where is that adapter from?

    OTF- You are right... The slip clutch is close to the mower... I am struggling to describe the attachment ring at the tractor end of the PTO shaft. I am looking for an adapter that uses that ring on the tractor end but accepts a pin on the far end. MM may have it?

    Tom- I guess I didn't think about swapping out the entire near part of the shaft on the Woods RM59. I guess I could if it comes to that but hoping there is an adapter which I hope would be cheaper.

    Exmasonite this is the one I found under a search from midland hardware, it will do what you need, and yes the quick attatch collar will slide back and then lock onto your tractor male spline shaft, only thing is like I said it will add prob 4-6 inches then you may have to shorten your pto shaft, but it's a much cheaper and easier solution than buying a new shaft.
