    Nope, and I have certainly killed the engine while brush mowing until I got the slip clutch properly adjusted.

    Never used mine. Hope it doesn't go the first time I do.

    This is the first time I have heard of this problem being mentioned in this forum, so it looks like a unfortunate fluke to be the first! Good luck on your repairs.

    Never heard of that either, Were you using slip clutch or shear bolt for protection?

    Broke PTO while using a flail mower? I'd say the belt(s) are too tight on your mower. I use a flail mower alot and have stalled it to the point of burning up the belts. The drive belt(s) are there to protect the mower gear box and the PTO/tractor. I've heard of broken PTO's but that was caused by sudden sock load i.e. 'tiller with no slip clutch or engaging the PTO at too high of engine RPM. So I would tend to believe that it was just a "fluke".

    are you sure the shaft broke? I have seen the internal over run clutch not working properly..... so the shaft doesn't drive.
