Reversing gearbox question.

Does anyone here have their chipper front mounted (unimog or tractor) and have a reverse gearbox to accommodate the PTO?
What I want to know about is any issues arising from this set up. I'm not interested in the overhang or weight issues, purely the PTO.

Many thanks.

Re: Reversing gearbox question.

I had one on a front mount on my mog years ago. It was x5 gear up and fitted snugly between the bumper and the rad. I had a Schliessing 105ZX (chopped about a bit to take 7-8"). The PTO shaft had a sprocket welded on the end which drove the chipper sprocket with a double chain. The only issue I had was that I had to chain-lube the chain frequently, which I did. I only went through 2 in 4 years . The chipper was mounted directly onto the bumper and had the hydraulic tank removed (it was plumbed into the Mog hydraulics). Its was a nice set up, wish I had it now!
