Not really following your question, are you talking about the implement PTO shaft?:dunno:
Or is there a problem with the PTO shaft on your tractor?

Depends on the implement, but for reference, my rotary cutter has a 35 1/2" pto shaft

You have to buy a pto shaft?
Either way the best thing to do is hook up and measure.

Okay, hook up and you'll see. Also just to mention I also have a 1023 and that really isn't enough tractor for a 5 footer. I'm right at the minimum HP required for my 4 footer.

There is no direct answer to your question, every implement is different. You need to verify the length is OK before hooking up and especially before operating. Get it wrong (if its to long) and you can do some serious damage to your tractor, or yourself (if its to short and comes apart while running).

Thanks coaltrain, I certainly didn't mean for him to hook up and take off into a field with it. I simply meant hook up, or at least back up to the implement to get a measurement or to see if the pto shaft is the right length.

That wasn't meant for you. I try to insert relevant sticky posts when applicable. There is a lot of good information in there - including what the OP needs to know.

Kenny, let me ask this so I know for sure. What is the relevance of too long of a shaft? On my tiller I only pull out a few inches of shaft to hook up. My FIL who has farmed it his entire life says the least amount of extension the better to eliminate wobble. Please educate me

If the shaft is too long, and you raise the implement-then the shaft can be pushed into the transmission and crack the case, bend the shaft, damage the u-joints, and/or damage the gearbox on the implement. The shaft must be able to collapse all the way when the 3PH is fully raised.

I'm good there with the tiller, thanks for clarifying that for me.

Measuring a PTO shaft...

OK! years ago I found this formula which only slightly (painfully) resembles the dreaded number line from 6 grade:laugh:

1. With implement PTO
end attached in place (bolted or snapped) measure from the retaining ring on the implement shaft to the center of the hitch mounting pins
2. turn to the tractor...
3. measure from the end of the PTO shaft to the center of the swivel balls on lift arms
4. deduct 2" for coupling space.
5. Using the interval (Uh Oh, theres that word) obtained in steps 1-4, measure the free (tractor) end of the PTO shaft and mark it to remove any shaft length beyond your calculated interval (1-4).
6. Remove the same length from the mating (implement) shaft - or it won't really be shorter!
7. Dress, lube mating shaft and shield ends, re-telescope the shaft.

mate the hitch, connect the shaft and go!

° This will work for any shaft: tiller (short) grooming or bush mower (long) or PH digger (Really Long!)
° should the lift arms be up or level for tractor measurement? - really doesn't matter as they describe an arc:geek:
