I was curious - I was inspired to look up PTO driven generators after seeing OB's post on his recent find. I stumbled across some different PTO gear boxes for generators and my gears started turning (no pun intended). 

 

I was just wondering how these compare in construction to the factory type rear PTO's (which i've never seen in person) and i'm wondering if a person could adapt one of these to work (or if they are even strong enough). I believe they are available in different RPM and ratio's. 

 

Anyways... just wanted to get some thoughts from those that have seen or own such a unicorn.

 

Here is one on ebay = PTO Drive Gearbox for Generators. 540 RPM to 1800 RPM 1 to 3.5 ratio

Looking at the diameter of that input shaft it should definitely be able to take the power. It looks like it's designed for a fair sized diesel. You would need to get the input down to 1800rpms  perhaps using a belt.

I wasn't sure what the RPM's were on the large frame's - but I thought this might help someone create a rear pto for other applications. I'd love to be able to have a rear or front mounted mower on my HT - it'd sure make life alot easier when mowing around the pine tree's.. or cleaning off the deck, or trying to get under or close to stuff.

The Large Frame PTO speed is 2000 RPM.

 

Not sure where in SE Ohio you are, but if you are up for a road trip:

I live outside Marietta, to bad that wasn't one of the big ones.. i'd be looking for a trailer and an excuse to miss work lol. Unfortunately I doubt I would get away with going after one lol. Between work and my other projects I probably shouldn't take anymore on lol.

Those GK's are fairly near me. Two runners and a parts machine.

I would buy these if I didn't already have two runners and a parts machine, plus two decks, two dozer blades, and a 2-stage snowblower for them.

What you need is a Haban front mount flail mower. It is funny how things come full circle . Kubota is again marketing a front mount flail mower

I'd love a front mount flail mower - but i've never seen one around here. I wonder how heavy/tall of stuff you can clear with a flail mower? Perhaps I could use it instead of my tow behind Haban brush hog.... to mow the fields.
