Power Take Off Shaft

As mentioned above, before applying any attachments or perhaps Power Take Off Shaft implements, always reading, understand and follow the manufacturer’s safety manual.
Only use equipment that is in good repair. Make sure that all guards or shields are in place and operational.
Guards around the energy take-off shafts, gear field and other rotating/spinning devices are very important.
Lower hydraulics.
Shut off the tractor engine.
Apply tractor parking brake.
Hitch tractor to implement.
Ensure that universal joints are in the correct stage when connecting the shaft.
Do not wear loose clothes. Tie back long locks. Do not use shoe laces dangling.
Stand away from moving or rotating gear. Where possible, work from the tractor chair, and have bystanders become at least 6 metres (20 foot) away.
Do not take away shields from the PTO shaft.
Make sure that the PTO spinner/essential shields rotate freely.
Use the correct size travel for the machine being powered.
Match the right PTO speed for the machine being used.
Do not step over a rotating shaft. Also PTO shafts with guards are dangerous. Walk around the gear.
Know how to quit the tractor, engine and attachment quickly in the event of emergency.
Follow shutdown techniques and wait for most moving parts to avoid before getting off the tractor or approaching the attachment.
Disconnect PTO when not in use.

“Power REMOVE” (PTO) is a term used to spell it out the process of transmitting power in one indicate another.A PTO shaft, for instance, is a cylindrical metal rod that attaches to a electric power source, like a tractor, at one end and an attachment, like a brush hog mower, at the additional. When the tractor’s engine is usually running, electricity flows along the shaft. The shaft rotates at engine acceleration, transferring strength from the engine to the attachment.
When attaching or detaching PTO-driven equipment:

PTO was developed mainly through the ingenuity of farmers. Previously, power take-off utilized belt drives, drive shaft attachments and pneumatics like bleed atmosphere, but a geared transmitting is more common today.
Power Take-Off accidental injuries are very common upon a farm. According to the National Agricultural Safety Data source, most PTO crashes occur when attire and/or limbs happen to be entangled in the rotating PTO shaft.
