Trailer into pto chipper

Recommended Posts

OK so far so good but now hit a snag and a big 1 at that, not enough room for the pto!

24" between tips of shafts on tractor and chipper which leaves not much room for overlap on pto.1fe9d1d6673ff4b5dccf82aa3d64d5f7.jpgb28b27fd0b31c14c463c5b79afcbf8aa.jpge34818a0c14783492580b79f009adb55.jpg

Any idea's anyone?

I may be talking stupid but can you get a shorter pto shaft? Or even cut that one down though I don't know if that's even possible or a good idea!

Dump the gearbox and run the chipper direct on 1000 rpm

Longer arms on 3PL or put an axle and drawbar under it

 

Both have issues though, longer arms will probably mean front weights and make your kick out huge, not so bad on site but its a car killer in traffic. running it as a trailed implement would be my choice

Should be ok with right size shaft most hedge cutters run short PTO shafts think the one I use is shorter then that.

 

:thumbup1: It is recommended that you have an over lap of 1/3 total length.

 

Shorten it by the minimum necessary so it doesn't foul when at its shortest.

 

Looking at your photos you should have at least 12" overlap on a total length of 30".

The way the shafts are put on the floor is where they will be clipped on to both ends, part of the problem is big ends from clicker on 1 and shear bolt on other.

Think I'm going to end up extending the bottom links on chipper out a bit to push it out more and give more room.
