Rear PTO coupler?

Recommended Posts

Not sure what you are asking.
Are you trying to plug something into the rear rotating PTO?

Yeah, my rear PTO doesn't have a coupler, and seeing how they seem to be hard to find, I thought I would try a different route.

If you have an actual PTO shaft that comes out the back, then yeah you could use something like that.

I do have a rear PTO shaft, if I didn't have the rear shaft the coupler wouldn't attach to anything. Is that what your trying to say?English isn't my first language, so sometimes I do not quite understand the vernacular English, In German everything is put in direct terms because there isn't alot of deviance with grammar or syntax, unless using slanglish

Lol. Brian. I do understand that I must have a rear PTO to need a coupler. Its kind of like I wouldn't need a muffler if I had a solar car. Clear as mud as to what you said, I just wasn't sure what JackC meant and I don't think he understood what I was say and then the confusion spread to all.

Most of the attachment I am familiar with, like the field mower for the rear end, and the snow blower for the front end, have shafts that slide into the rear PTO or the front PTO. The shaft then goes to a universal joint. I assume you could make a coupler but it would need to be very strong to withstand the torque. One end of the coupler would need a shaft to slide into the rear PTO. There may be a Category 0 rotating PTO coupler available from a tractor dealer or from somewhere. You could also make a coupler from a universal joint.

What are you trying to attach?

My rear pto shaft is also missing the quick connect coupler that came with these shafts but one of the PO had just changed up the drive to the rear deck to slide over the pto shaft spines and there would be a spring inside that drive shaft to the implement.

There are two threads one here and one under implements and attachments. Can a moderator fix it?

Sounds like you are missing the female coupling end if all you have is the male end.
I will need to find a parts diagram.

If all you have is the male end of the rotating PTO, I would look for a spline drive clamp on coupler. They are often used when connecting to hydraulic pumps that have splined shafts. That would give you something to attach to.  Something like below:

Thanks a bunch Jack, the two tabs on the front would not attach to anything, or would they? If not would it hurt to cut them off?

Wonder how two threads started, I idn't think it was me, but it sure might have been, weird. I have a parts diagram

John Deere used the same coupler as the D series on some of their larger garden tractors. You might want to check for a John Deere coupler, I'll bet they're still available..
