PTO Dilemma

Recommended Posts

In my search for a snowblower for my 7018 Simplicity, I came across a 912 AC with a blown engine (broken rod) and a nice 36" snowblower (plus 48"deck and 42" blade) for sale. The price was right, so I bought the package. My thought was that I could simply remove the front pto from the 912, mount it on my 7018, hook the blower up, and blow snow. However, the front shaft on the 912 is 1" and the one on the 7018 is 1-1/8", so this doesn't work out like I had hoped (never does). I have considered a few things: 1) I could get the 912 fixed; 2) I could attempt to trade someone the pto I have for the one I need; 3) I could modify the pto to fit my tractor by having it bored out to 1-1/8". #3 would be the quickest (and maybe easiest) to do, but I'm afraid of ruining the pto, and I know they are not all that easy to come by. I'm also not sure if this is even possible. Other than the size of the hole, are the pto from the 912 and 7018 the same? What are your thoughts???? DaveM

I could very well be wrong, but I believe there is a sleeve adaptor that when removed will fit the 1 1/8 shaft and if you have to go smaller you will have to make a sleeve. I believe it is the same clutch

There was no front PTO made for the 900 series. The blower was intended to be driven from the mid PTO on the 900 series useing a single pulley hitch. Some one installed a pto from a 3300, 3400, 7000 series on it. Most of the front PTO's for the 7000 series had a bushing so they could be installed on both the 1" shaft and the 1 1/8" shaft.
