    Default SLIP CLUTCH

    after reading some old post about slip clutch, i remember my old ford 2n had one on the finish mower(tractor end) Don't know if the Befco finish mower that i got with my b2400 has one or not . can't look at it now because it is at my other garage, question. if it does not have one, should i get one, or is it not necessary with the newer tractors,or do i just not need it for finish mower?

    It should have either a slip clutch or a shear bolt, to protect the implement and the tractor.

    I have never seen a slip clutch on a finish mower.

    Most finish mower blades are run by belts on pulleys.
    the belts should slip before you break anything should you hit something.

    Are you sure that wasn't an overrunning clutch? De- clutching an "N" doesn't disconnect the PTO from the transmission so you need an overrunning clutch to keep the mower from propelling the tractor.

    i do beleive u are correct, the dealer i bought th mower from said i should have one to stop the mower from running the tractor up a tree.did not realize the difference between the two. thought they were one and the same. isee i was wrong AGAIN [img]/w3tcompact/icons/hmm.gif[/img]. thanks for setting me straight.

    Shear bolts sure sound cheaper. The whole point, AFAIK, of a <font color=blue> finish </font color=blue> mower is to mow grass. I'm not sure how the grass grows in your end o fthe country ... but here in Michigan it hasn't been known to stop many mowers.

    Now a bush/brush/trash mower ... on the other hand ... well, lets just say that the 2-3 inch willows have managed to make me intimately familiar with changing shear bolts.
