PTO Hits Driveline Hard Posted by Johnnybar on 11/13/2012

For those of you that use the PTO with heavy inertia implements like brush mowers and have issues with sheared pins/bolts, put a slip clutch in the PTO's driveline.

I run a 10'3" trailed mower and it works great. Get one with and overrun clutch or add a separate overrun at the tractor PTO if the implement does not have one because the PTO is also braked HARD when shut off while the tractor key is on.
