    Default Slip clutch question

    My Land Pride 1542 rotary tiller came with a slip clutch (I live in New Hampshire - there is a reason we are called the Granite state). In three years it has never slipped even when I hit a rock big enough to stall the tractor. I found the instructions here to free a slip clutch. I was going to loosen the nuts around the edges and noticed that the number W2300 is on the plastic shield. I can't find a number on the clutch itself. The Walterscheid booklet identifies the 2300 as a 46 HP unit.

    I have a kubota B2400.

    Where can I find a number of the clutch on the clutch itself? (The W2300 on the shield may apply to the shield or the wrong shield may have been installed or )

    Will a 46 HP slip clutch ever slip when installed on an 18 HP PTO?

    Should the dealer have supplied a different slip clutch?

    I have shear pins instead of slip clutches on all my implements, but as far as I know, all slip clutches are adjustable (and need re-adjusting periodically or they'll get seized up and won't work). So I think all you need to do is get it freed up, and when you re-adjust it, set it so that it slips a little easier; don't think the dealer would (or should) supply a "different" slip clutch.

    Here is a link to the landpride site. You can down load the owners manual as well as the parts manual for your tiller at no charge.

    I've got a RTA-2570 tiller last fall and the clutch has only slipped one time in roughly 40-50 hrs of use. It was a piece of railroad tie that did it. But it does till real nice.

    Did my biggest field yesterday with it about five acres. Single pass I can do an acre and one half an hour with no problem. Shame is I make more money on the small gardens than the larger ones seems like. Oh well, the tiller is now payed for after the field yesterday.
