PTO Drive Shaft Types

There are two types of PTO shafts, and everyone who owns a tractor needs to know the PTO shaft type on their tractor. One may not see the need to identify a PTO shaft type until one needs to replace a damaged PTO shaft. Let's mention the two PTO shaft types and show how quickly you can identify shaft types. The first PTO shaft type is known as domestic, and the second type is known as the metric.

You can identify each type by its shapes. The domestic PTO shaft is of four shapes: square, rectangle, round, and splined. Metric PTO shaft is of three shapes, namely star, bell, and football shapes.

Domestic PTO shaft is very common in North America, so the shaft style is usually attributed to North America. The Metric PTO shafts with star and ball shapes are attributed to Germany. The Metric PTO shaft with a bell shape is attributed to Italy. Each PTO shaft style (shape) comprises many series, which vary in PTO shaft length and size. After identifying the shaft type, one can measure one End of its cap to another at the U-joint and the external diameter of the bearing cap to know the shaft series.

How to Attaching PTO Shaft to Tractor?

PTO shaft accidents are one of the most common and severe causes of tractor-related injuries. Before doing anything with the tractor and implementing PTO shaft components, read and follow every safety instruction and best practice in the tractor and implement operator's manuals. Ensure all shielding and other tractor and implement PTO shaft components are in good operating condition. Do not work with the tractor and implement PTO shaft components while the tractor engine is running or while any portion of the PTO shaft-powered implement is still in motion.

Attaching PTO Shaft to Tractor

Often to connect an implement's PTO drive shaft to the tractor's rear PTO shaft, you have to simultaneously bend over while lifting an implement's heavy PTO shaft. Plus, you must correctly align PTO driveline splines while pulling back on the implement's PTO shaft release collar or pressing the pin-lock release — all while sliding the implement shaft onto the tractor's PTO shaft. We know that does not sound easy.

To help make this potentially difficult task easier, use these methods from experienced tractor operators. (Wearing gloves while making PTO shaft connections is another smart tip to help avoid cuts and scrapes.)

First, ensure everything is ready for a PTO shaft connection to happen (reading the tractor and implementing ops manuals is the key to knowing the right settings on both machines). Most tractors allow you to put the PTO shaft on the tractor into a neutral position. This ensures the tractor PTO output shaft will spin freely, making correctly aligning the two shafts' splines much easier.

If you are connecting a 3-point-mounted implement, take care that the 3-point hitch is in the full down position to avoid getting accidentally crushed if someone was to move the position lever inadvertently. The hitch and implement can lower even when the engine is turned off. If you can't get the PTO shafts to align with the 3-point implement in the full-down position, you may need to remove the drawbar. Often removing the drawbar is a good idea in general when using PTO shaft-powered 3-point implements. This helps avoid damaging the PTO shaft due to the shaft striking the drawbar when the implement drops to the lower travel limit of the 3-point hitch. Check the amount of clearance between the PTO shaft and the drawbar before you begin using a PTO shaft-powered 3-point implement.

Suppose your tractor PTO shaft does not have a neutral setting and the tractor PTO shaft remains locked when the engine is turned off. In that case, you might need to mount the implement to the 3-point hitch, raise it and lock it into the extended position before shutting down the tractor – this way; you should be able to rotate the implement shaft to align the splines carefully. Take extra care to keep fingers out of the implement PTO shaft universal joint here, as there may be a bit of momentum behind the implement shaft's rotation.

Next, the two PTO shaft ends should be clean. Dirty and dry splined shafts can be nearly impossible to hook up. The splined PTO shafts are designed to have a tight fit. One small piece of grit from the soil or some crop debris can stop the shafts from sliding together.

Next, coat both lightly with grease to help the two tight-fitting pieces of metal slide together. Clean oil from a clean source is preferred, but your experienced tractor operators know how to improvise in the field. Once lubricated, the two splined shafts should slide together much more quickly.

Connecting PTO Shaft to Tractor Hooking Up PTO Shaft to Tractor

The PTO shaft connection is not very far off the ground on compact tractors and their implements. It can be easier to kneel to handle the PTO shaft connection. Kneeling and lifting the weight of the implemented PTO shaft can go faster if you're kneeling on a suitable surface. An automobile floor mat, a piece of carpet, or some sturdy cardboard will ease the stress on your knees while you hook up the PTO shaft.

Once the splines are aligned, press the locking pin button or pull back on the ball-lock collar and push the shaft onto the PTO shaft. If it is stubborn to slide, sometimes jiggling the End of the implement PTO shaft up and down will help get it started.

Once started, slide the shaft on – you might hear a click, and your button should retract to the original position, or your collar will slide forward. To ensure that the shaft lock is fully seated, pull back on the shaft with your hands off the button or the collar; it should be impossible to remove.

With these simple tips, you can make PTO shaft hookups less time-consuming and move faster to get what needs to be done.

How do Cutting a PTO Shaft to the Proper Length?

May damage chipper bearings or tractor PTO. If the PTO shaft is too long, it may jam when the three-point hitch is lifted. If the PTO shaft is too long, it must be cut off. An equal amount must shorten the two halves of the PTO.

1. Install the chipper on the three-point hitch of the tractor.
2. Cut off the engine and remove the key. Place the chipper on a firm and level surface.
3. Lift the three-point hitch so that the chipper's power intake shaft is at the same level as the tractor's PTO. The power take-off and air intake should be closest to this location.
4. Pull the PTO shaft apart. Attach the half shaft to the chipper, so the locking pin locks in place. Line the other End of the chipper flush with the End of the tractor PTO. Place the side of the End by side as shown in the image to the right. Mark on the shield how much must be cut off. The tubes must be so short that they cannot reach the bottom in any chipper position.

5. Cut the plastic tube.How to cut a PTO shaft to the proper length6. Cut a piece from the profile tube, the same length as the piece you cut off of the shield. Shorten the other half of the PTO shaft to the same length.

How to cut a PTO shaft to the proper length

7. File sharp edges off of the profile tubes. You will need to remove any burrs from the cut ends of the PTO shaft to allow the PTO to slide correctly. We recommend applying grease to both sides of the PTO before reassembling. Once you have reassembled your PTO shaft, it is ready to be attached to your tractor and implemented.

PTO Shaft Accident Issues

Due to PTO shafts used for agricultural equipment that experiences high stress and loads when operating, failure can occur. Paying attention to where the issue is happening will help you identify the cause of the problem.

Compression Issues

Constant compression of the PTO shaft for an extended period can result in damaged connections on the PTO shaft, connecting shafts, implement, tractor, or bearings. Any of these occurrences can be fixed by shortening the PTO shaft length. Turn to the experienced professionals at HZPT to do this correctly and promptly to get you back on track to completing your tasks quickly.

Wear and Tear

When operating agricultural equipment, there will inevitably be wear and tear. Areas to watch out for this, especially, are the yoke ears or sides that can be damaged from working excessively at angles. If the gradient exceeds forty-five degrees, the PTO shaft should be disengaged.

Telescoping tubing and sections can also experience excessive wear if lubrication is lacking where the tubes overlap. Insufficient lubrication can also cause undue wear on shield bearings. Without proper lubrication, the friction between these bearings is too great. They should be lubricated every eight hours.

PTO Shaft Accidents Issues PTO Shaft Accident Issues

Damaged or Broken Parts

It's the attention when things start to run less smoothly, or you focus on an area of the machinery that ordinarily runs smoothly. Part damage can happen anywhere from telescope tubes to cross-bearing arms or joints to yokes. Be aware of the shock load on your equipment, and make sure you are using the suitable types of PTO shaft for the job you are attempting to accomplish. Heavy-duty equipment can take a lot of stress, but it's essential to stop if something isn't right before damaging it beyond a simple fix.

Clutch Issues

Most tractor PTO shaft failures and issues stem from an improperly adjusted clutch or the complete absence of one. If you plan to rotate farmland or implement jobs of continuous contact, be sure to use a slip clutch to absorb the strikes.

PTO Shaft Maintenance

  • lubricate the bearings regularly as recommended by the manufacturer - do not over-grease the bearing as the excess grease will attract dirt and dust.
  • Clean the inner and outer sliding surfaces of the telescopic section of the guard daily or more frequently if the manufacturer recommends it - do not lubricate the sliding area of the guard with grease unless the manufacturer recommends it.
  • Regularly remove the guard and clean the shaft with penetrating oil.
  • Make sure that the U-guard on the tractor is in good condition. If bent, it can damage the End of the PTO shaft guard.
  • Ensure that the O-guard fitted to the implement is the correct size to suit the PTO shaft guard.
  • Make sure that the U-guard on the tractor and the O-guard on the implement overlap the PTO shaft guard by at least 50mm.
  • Make sure that the PTO shaft and guard are the correct lengths for the machine - the PTO shaft guard telescopic section should be slightly shorter (not by more than 25mm) than the length of the telescopic halves of the PTO drive shaft.
  • Lubricate the sliding metal PTO drive shafts as the manufacturer recommends (usually before starting work and after every eight hours of use).
  • Make sure that the button on the PTO shaft moves freely, as the shaft and guard can be damaged if the controller or the End of the shaft is hammered into position.

PTO Shaft Maintenance

  • Keep the tractor's rear lower lift arms in a position to avoid them striking the PTO shaft or guard when the tractor is turning - if making tight turns, reduce the PTO shaft speed or disengage the PTO drive to protect the shaft.
  • Keep the restraining chains in place and secure them to a suitable point on the tractor and implement - this is usually near the O-guard on the machine and the U-guard on the tractor (this makes sure that there is no restriction in the movement of the chains) - do not attach the End of the chain to the lower lift arms.
  • If using a bellows type PTO shaft guard, make sure that the ends of the guard are held correctly in place at both the tractor and implement to ensure the drive shaft is fully enclosed in the guard and replace it if necessary.
  • If buying a new PTO shaft for heavy drive machines, for example, forage harvesters, mowers, feeder wagons, or rotavators, make sure the shaft is heavy-duty and suitable for the job.
  • Consider fitting a PTO shaft with a wide-angle universal joint on balers, mowers, and slurry tankers.
  • Make sure that draw-bar pins on trailed machines do not foul and damage the shaft or guard.

PTO Shaft for Agricultural Gearboxes

The agricultural gearbox and PTO shaft are two tractor components that work together to transmit power. Yokes connect the agricultural gearbox and PTO shaft at both ends. The PTO shaft rotates at 540 to 1,000 rpm. Depending on the application, they may have a higher or lower torque rating. We sell many PTO shafts as a professional agricultural machinery parts supply.
