41 hours on my 2025r running the rototiller hit a rock should have broke the shear pin on the drive shaft but instead it broke something inside the housing in the tractor when you turn the PTO on you can hear it but the shaft not turning any suggestions

Not real sure on the new 2025R but for other Deere CUT models a symptom like that often means you broke the PTO stub off inside the rear housing.

Shouldn't the shear pin broke on drive shaft to do you think this will be under warranty

Is that PTO stub off a big job to fix
Not sure on your model. The shaft itself doesn't look to bad in the arts breakdown but I don't know if your model allows access from the rear of the transaxle case or if the entire transaxle has to be broken down.

The shear pin exists to prevent this exact problem. That's it's only purpose in life.

I'm not sure how Deere will handle it as far as warranty goes. Is it a Deere tiller that you purchased new as well? Did the dealer set it up for you?

Typically, this sort of thing isn't covered unless you can show that the shaft was defective somehow. But if you bought the tiller with the machine and the dealer set everything up... the dealer may take responsibility for it.

Was the tiller completely set-up and all you had to do to install it was attach the 3 point and pto shaft? I'd be interested to see where this ends up.

I'm curious what tiller you bought that didn't come with a slip clutch. :dunno:

xcopterdoc beat me too it.

Where the PTO connects to the tiller, there should be bolts with springs on them. There are 3 disks in the middle. There should be a certain air gap specified in the manual, Frontier and JD stuff is usually around 4mm depending on model. If something is hit, it should slip the disks instead of damaging internals.

I don't know which tiller the op has, but I bought the Frontier rt1142 and it has a shear bolt instead of a slip clutch.

This is a warranty issue because obviously there was a casting/forging defect in the PTO shaft/stub/whatever that caused it to break before the sheer bolt or slip clutch did their job.

That is what I would say, and I would not deviate from that position one bit. Casting/forging defects in factory steel are a real thing and they do happen. And honestly, that is likely what happened to you, unless you are using some old tiller with a very seized up slip clutch or someone put a hardened steel bolt where the sheer bolt goes.

Problem solved the shifter was between rear PTO and mid PTO guess I had a blonde moment
Lol I think we have all done that .. as a side note I flip the lever over to mid pto anytime I hook up so I can spin the splines to line them up with my fingers

Yes sir. I was not used to PTO brakes but learned that trick from this site.

That's a very useful piece of info. Glad I learned it a while ago...
