It is a continuous running pto.  Lever shift, pto engages with clutch before gear drive.
Economy failure = Too many people spending money they don't have on things they don't need to impress people they don't like.

So is the PTO always running if the clutch is out?   You have no way to drive the tractor without the shaft turning?   That could be a PITA.

No, there is a lever to engage or disengage.  When it is in on position, the clutch must be fully depressed to disengage the pto.  The pto engages before the transmission drive train.

My Dad an older Kubota like that with a 2 stage clutch. 
 
press the clutch pedal in 1/2 way and the drive train stops but the PTO keeps going, keep pressing it down further and the PTO disengages.  There was a stopper you could flip over so you couldn't press the clutch into the PTO side if you didn't have anything hooked up.   


I prefer that design for things where I might need to disengage the PTO quickly, like hitting something with a brush hog that stops the blades or plugging the swather/baler.   You always step on the clutch first thing anyways, so it worked out well....  *BAM!*  stomp the clutch to the floor and everything is stopped.

Now I've got a small lever hidden back behind me that I have to fumble around trying to find quickly while things are smoking  :rolleyes:


I rebuilt the older 70's Kubota two stage multi disk clutch, it was expensive and the tolerances were tight when measuring the gap to get the two clutches disengaging at the right time but it ran perfect when I was done.  If the gap was too big the drive train clutch would slip, gap too tight and the pto side wouldn't disengage.  It was fun, enjoyed fixing that  :chuckle:

That'll be fine for a chipper, you'll be able to bump and feather the big heavy disc just fine.   And you will be OK without a PTO slip disc.

I've never heard it refered to as a continous PTO, I've heard it refered to as non-live or transmission PTO, but I see that Deere, thence TractorData refers to it as continious too. That is exactly what I have in my 1983 YanDeere 950, along with the two stage clutch that KF mentioned (although mine has never really worked as such).

The slip PTO shafts are most needed with the electronic clutches of modern tractors with live PTO systems.   There you don't really have an oportunity to feather the clutch, the best you can do is bump it on and off a couple of times and then hang on.

 :yeah:

My newer tractor is an in or out kinda deal too, I can kind of feather it in but its an aggressive engagement.   I throttle way down, sometimes to idle if it won't kill the engine, then throttle up after its spinning everything. 

brush hog is the worst to spin up

Went all in today.  :tup:  I'll be able to give a review on the 6" Woodland Mills in 2 - 3 weeks after I run a few trees thru it.   :tree1:  If it works as good as I hope it will, I'll be taking bulk orders for sausage in the off season.   :cue:   :chuckle:

Bring this back up for a review.  So I got the Woodland Mills chipper and have put well over 100 hours on it to date.  It will take anything you can throw into the 6 x 8 throat.  Keep the blades sharp and one person can't feed it too fast.  Small, green, and wet will be biggest problem material.  7 acres done, and lined out on next five.  Delivery and service is over the top.  :tup:
