    Default lynch pin help

    I was blowing snow and heard the PTO start to chatter and looked down to see that a Lynch pin came off allowing the blower to slide off one lift arm. This has happened on my bush hog twice and now the SB. This bends shite and makes me a little less then jovial. I could use some suggestions for alternatives to the TSC and Princess auto's Lynch pins.

    Thanks

    Get the high powered black ones. But look out for them. They will bite you both opening and closing them.

    I wire tie mine so they don't come loose when I use the blower

    there are some that you must squeeze together before opening. I bought mine a while back at the JD deeler. They are more secure. But wire will work, just not as easy or clean.

    The black ones are tough. I have never had one of those come off even in terrible thick bushhogging jobs. And yes they will pinch the snot outta your fingers!

    If in brush I would use the black heavy duty lynch pins and then a zip tie. You can get about 200 of them for a couple dollars. That would last a lot of years and they are easy. That would help from twigs or branches from getting behind the ring and popping them open.

    TSC also has them. I believe they are about 75 cents each as opposed to about 30 cents. But well worth it for the loss of aggravation.
