I just purchased the king kutter Xbox 4’ tiller for my 1025r. The drive shaft that came with it seems to long to me. I’m wondering if anyone else has had that problem or if I’m doing something wrong. Thanks

Most PTO Shafts have to be cut shorter, Read the directions that came with the tiller, they will tell you how to measure and cut.

From web. Thanks

I am surprised no manual. If you can't find one, look for the Woodland Mills WC-46 Chipper Manual, they have a very good explanation on how to measure and cut.

A short story why the driveshaft needs to be cut to correct length. A friend has a Tartar tiller from TSC. He did not cut his driveshaft short enough. The only thing that keeps the input shaft/gear of the gearbox from moving inward is a snap ring. When he replaced a leaking seal he found only part of the broken snap ring. I don't think his tractor was damaged.

I wonder where the missing part of the snap ring is?

Having to long a PTO shaft can cause sever damage to the rear of the tractor, he was extremely lucky!

Thanks all very big help. Just confirming I’m reading the cutting of the pto. If I need to
Shorten it by 6 inches. I should cut 3” from
Each side. Correct?
