So what's that little clutch thing in the PTO shaft? If I get one will I not have to wait for the shredder blade to coast to a stop before I can put it in reverse?
Or, further, when my grandpa was about five beers into a six pack and brush-hogging around the lake, would he have been able to push in the clutch and stop without the brush hog’s flywheel effect putting him and the tractor into the drink?
Okay, tough guy, how does a standard PTO differ from the one on a Farmall Cub?
Super cool of you folks to educate us urban soft-handed types on this stuff. You can see the history unfolding with each ingenious implementation. Though that circular saw gave this guitar player the heebie-jeebies. Didn't help to see the one-armed guy in the video.
Cub PTOs spin in the opposite direction (counter clockwise) and at a much higher than standard RPM, which means if you want to use an implement not specifically designed for the Cub, you'll need a converter box that reverses the spin and gears things down to 540.
If anybody has a spare throttle plate or drawbar & bracket set for one, lemme know.
