I picked up a used 52 Broom at a reasonable price that was previously mounted on an X748 that I want to put on the 1026R. I've got the quick hitch and pto shaft that runs under the tractor for the 1026. The broom that came off the X748 has the short pto shaft that attaches to the mid pto shaft but I am pretty sure the front pto shaft will need to be longer to fit the 1026. I'm certain I can have a machine shop lengthen the shaft much cheaper than a new shaft.
So I am asking if someone with the snowblower or broom mounted on their 1023 or 1026r could measure the distance of the front pto shaft shen extended to its fullest dimension. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
