    PTO Drive Shaft Installation

    I just got my first implement (WoodMax Chipper) that uses the PTO. The implement manual says in at least two places to install the PTO with the shear bolt end attached to the tractor. The PTO shaft has a diagram printed on it that indicates the shear bolt end should be attached to the implement. I also watched one of Ted's videos (rotary mower) from Everyhing Attachments where he points out the shear bolt end attached to the implement.

    So, which is it? Which end goes where and why?

    The shear bolt should go one the implement side. I've never seen a shear bolt be on the tractor side. Not that it probably matters, but that's the industry standard if there ever was one.

    Post up some pics and what you think of the chipper. I've been contemplating a chipper myself, I just have to get over the price tag for something that I don't really "need". What model did you get?

    I got the TM-86H with the hydraulic feed.

    I was quite impressed when it was delivered and continue to be. It arrived on a welded steel pallet and was almost ready for operation. Just a couple simple items to attend to including trimming the PTO shaft which was a snap with my metal cutting chop saw. Make sure you use 15W40 MOTOR OIL for the hydraulics, NOT standard hydraulic fluid!!

    This is one impressive piece of equipment! Everything is heavy duty and the fit and finish is very good.

    It runs smooth with no vibration and chips very well. I have yet to put it through its paces but will post pics and a complete review when I have given it a good workout.

    First impressions are that this is a robust machine well worth the cost. I took advantage of the 5% veteran's discount and the unit was shipped within 2 days.

    I've also been thinking about that model of chipper, interested in knowing how well the 1025 handles it.

    This chipper was designed to be used with a tractor the size of a 1025. At 600lbs+ it rides nicely on the tractor. The 1025 seems to have enough PTO hp to run the chipper wheel efficiently.

    I tried a few 3" limbs with lots of branches spread out. This chipper swallowed them and spit them out with no hesitation. The hydraulic feed wheel grabbed the branch and pulled it into the hopper and compressed the smaller branches as they were gobbled down the chute. I just placed the branches into the hopper and the feed wheel took over with no need for assistance from me.

    I'll try larger stuff tomorrow if it doesn't rain.

    Will at WoodMax pointed out that if the shear bolt is on the tractor side and should happen to shear for some reason the PTO shaft will stop turning completely which seems a safer condition to me.
