540 rpm pto uses?

Recommended Posts

DanBov
I just recently picked up what I believe is a 540 rpm pto attachment . Advertising literature claims its used to power other farm attachments . Does anyone know what those other implements might be ? I have not seen to much information on this unit .

hay elevators, grain augers, pto driven generators ETC.

Any 3 pt or pull type attachment that requires power, i.e. rough cutter, tiller, spreader, chipper etc.

Don, The PTO output shaft on the Simplicity 540 rpm PTO doesn't stick out to the rear, it points to the right. If you have a towed 3 point implement I don't think it's going to work...

I would like to find one to put on my 920 so i can run elavators in tight spots where its hard to get tractors in also with as much hp as it has i think i could run a truck auger if the belt would hold. is the one u have one with a gear box or is it for the b series that was just a big pully.

Sorry daddycat, I didn't realize Simp made anything other than the one on my Legacy. Thanks for settin' me straight.

This is the one, but I thought it was for the 7000/7100 series tractors. I was thinking about those bigger PTO driven generators. I've seen Simplicity literature showing one of the bigger tractors with this PTO driving a stationary mounted generator. The pitch was to use the tractor for another task, emergency power along with other normal farm jobs. I guess it's really just an adaptation of the old generators that mounted to the rear hitch of the early tractors. BTW, that's a 700/725 drive pulley in front of the PTO pulley....

BTW, I checked the ST site and found references to the 540 rpm PTO from the B-10/12 and Big Ten era(about 1964) forward to at least the early 80's which is about as far along the time line as that site goes. http://www.simpletractors.com/models/b_series/prices/69_pg_20-5.htm http://www.simpletractors.com/made_when/1980-1981.htm

I use my 540 PTO to power a concrete mixer. I also used it once to drive a well point. Here’s a Simplicity photo showing it used to power a generator.

[img]http://www.simpletractors.com/images/b_attachments_images/speed_jack_small.jpg[/img] I have a CIZEK, but have never used it. I wanted it to power a buzz saw, but it needed too many modifications to turn in the proper direction, so I made my own rig.
