Homebrew shaft drive PTO?

Recommended Posts

Guest
just found this: [img]http://i234.photobucket.com/albums/ee71/mortation/100_2030.jpg[/img] Thinking about doing the same thing but sideways and powered off the original tiller PTO pulley setup. Goal is to run 540 attachments like: [url]http://www.everythingattachments.com/Phoenix-T4-Series-Value-Model-48-Tractor-Tiller-p/ph-tiller-rotary-t4-48k.htm[/url] Anyone ever try this with a simplicity? Looks relatively strait forward...

I did something like that for the lift on my Sovereign to attach my tiller. The tiller is a Cat 0 3 point hitch and I made some arms which look similar to those in your pic. I simplified mine by making the rear lift lever the lift point which I attached to the implement like a top link. The lower arms just follow and stabilize the load. Works well, but I have no adjustment for levelling. The tiller has rear wheels for setting the depth. I just found a picture

Thats pretty neat, I was more refering to the 90 degree gearbox to run shaft implements (Standard 540 RPM)

Oh I see... You want a driveshaft AND a lift. I thought you were talking about a lift and using the belt drive PTO. The link you posted did not work before, but I can see it now. That Tiller looks tough. And the use of the gearbox is clever, too. The weight might be a problem, though. The tiller above weighs about 300lbs and is about as much as the rear lift can muster. The tractor is a 3415h with electric lift. The tractor steers fine with that much weight on the back, as well.
