PTO Shaft

A power take-off or power takeoff (PTO) is any of several methods for taking power from a power source, such as a running engine, and transmitting it to an application such as an attached implement or separate machines.

Most commonly, it is a splined drive shaft installed on a tractor or truck allowing implements with mating fittings to be powered directly by the engine.

Semi-permanently mounted power take-offs can also be found on industrial and marine engines. These applications typically use a drive shaft and bolted joint to transmit power to a secondary implement or accessory. In the case of a marine application, such shafts may be used to power fire pumps.

It is the customer responsibility to inform EP. about the Country to which the PTO drive shafts will be delivered,in order to provide them with the suitable Manuals and Labels.
Ensure that all driveline,tractor and implement shields are functional and in place before operation.Damaged or missing parts must be replaced with originalspar parts,correctly installed,before using the driveline.
The PTO drive shaft joint does not operate continuously with an angle close to 80°, but only for brief periods (steering).
DANGER!Rotating driveline-contact can cause death. Keep away! Do not wear loose clothing,jewelry,or hair that could become entangled with the driveline.
Never use the safety chains to support the driveline for storage. Always use the support on the implement.
