Farm Tractor tech in GCC

this is pretty cool and am thinking of buy a set
Quote:
Simply attach the male plate of the PTO Linkô to your PTO drive-line then attach the female plate to the tractorís PTO spline. Disconnecting your PTO shaft is now as simple as pulling the release on the spring-loaded shear pin. Now there is no more hassle or headache connecting or disconnecting to your power take off. Once the PTO Linkô system is installed to each tractor and to each implement, the PTO Linkô system permanently changes your PTOís interface and never needs to be removed. The PTO linkô system will work with any implement and tractor rated under 100 HP.

Is pulling a collar back on a PTO shaft that much of a hassle? I think it probably takes me 5 seconds to do that and slide it on or off.
Solution to a non-existent problem

They should work fine for 3 point implements but draw bar implements will vibrate when turning due to the universal pivot plane being pushed rearward. Deere's design gets away with a quick coupler setup due to the yoke being replaced by a dedicated coupler system

Turn a collar, wiggle, pull and it's unhooked. That's how they all should be.

This^ . Now lining the splines is my only issue. But it's not much of an issue.

Yeah fuck that nonsense... Either push the button or slide the collar back and hook/unhook the pto. What is so hard about that?

You ever try cleaning and/or oiling your pto splines? Kinda like a hi-lift jack. Hit that shit with some wd-40 or other cheap as shit aerosol lubricant every time before you use it and life will not suck so much.

What do you mean JD on one side and IHC on the other?

Is it a 540 or 1000 pto shaft?

Do you need a 6 spline 540 on one end and a 21 tooth spline 1000 rpm on the other?


These are links to pics of each type...
540 rpm:

1000 rpm:

JD mower and IHC 884 I bought them separately from the town and they started stripping the mower I don't know why nothing from a 34 year old mower is going to fit their new shiny one so now I need the shaft that runs between them. As close as I can measure there is 73 inches from the notch on the splines of the mower to the one on tractor. I believe it to be 1000 rpm

6 spline is 540, 20 spline is 1000rpm.
Nothing specific about a JD vs IH, the PTO shafts follow an SAE standard so it should be universal.

No local farm equipment "junkyards" around? There's a local place here that has a shit load of PTO shafts from old junked equipment you can sort through looking for the one that'll work just right, or that you can modify to work...

they're like square tube driveshafts
the slip is like 2/3 the compressed length of the shaft, you don't need anything exact, just close

Interesting concept, and I can definitely understand the benefits. Sometimes, depending on the implement, it can be had to get the splines to align or have enough movement to decouple...


But.... while I genuinely like the concept, the videos imply that it has a good amount of slack when connected. That part bugs me.
