PTO adapter

Recommended Posts

You can not just adapt 2000 rpm spinning tractor and hook a 540 rpm attatchment to it unless you want lots of little parts of the said attatchment flying all over the place, the ARK adapter is the only wat to go unless you can rig a 4:1 reducing gear off the back, but I would try to find the ark adapter It wont be cheep if you find it

If you contemplate making one this post (copied from mytractorforum) does the math. I'd think you'd want to enclose the chain drive in a dust proof box, but that's typical of the differences between MTD and Simplicity I guess. --------------------------------------------- "This may help. If you want to make a speed reducer here is the information from MTD. With a speed of 2000 RPM to a 8 tooth sprocket, chain drive to 15 tooth on the same shaft as the 15 you have an 8 tooth with a chain to 16 tooth which is the output drive of 540 RPM. This is something that can be fabricated as pictured with bearing supports. You would make this for the rear PTO with a straight shaft to this box."

if your engine is rated full HP at 3600rpm engine speed, it doesn't put out half HP even at 1800rpm (PTO would be 1000) under load. (I think, never actually put one on a dyno). So you won't have much power available to run your generator. If it is a small generator and a large engine, maybe - but the engine also doesn't cool very well at low RPM.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
