I was cruising the Cub Cadet side of the forum......saw this and went...ahhhh.....maybe if I posted it with here....Daniel, Brian and Titus (or others) could come up with something cool to do with our rear pto's!

If building a FEL, that rear pto would be an option for driving the hydraulics.  That way it could be kicked in & out easily, making it easier to start the engine.

A backup generator is something that would be handy to have as well.

Maybe I can drive a big fan off of it to blow air on me while I'm at a show riding around. :thumbs:  I would need a sun shade also then. :D

I'd love a post hole digger for mine.  I haven't been able to find a 2000 RPM one though.  I've been thinking that with our soils it might be cool to build one where the PTO runs a hydraulic motor and that runs the PHD though.  That way you'd have reverse when it gets stuck.

Well you could build one snd the 2000 RPM might not be a barrier. Years ago My Dad took an old Truck Rearend. I think it had 4:11 gears in it and bilt a post hole digger and it worked pretty well.

Had another thought to throw out, though this was not on a Cadet. I used to drive by the Hagedorn Farm a lot. And every spring at planting time. He would have a 400 gal(?) Nurser Tank mounted on a Hay Rack, with a John Deere 112 siting next to it.

He had a Mule Drive mounted with a pump to agitate the Chemical mix and pump into his Sprayer tanks. He has done this for many years and it must work well.

Brian, get an older model fan and pulley off a car water pump. Make a shaft for it to spin on and hook up a belt to it. Put a cover over it and your done. Got AC on the GT!
