Hi Guys,

 

Living in Georgia, I have never needed  a snow thrower.   Are there any other useful attachments for a front PTO?

There were some front mounted reel mowers, flail mowers, sickles, and Simplicity had a weed cutter. Check out www.simpletractors.com for the accessories that were available for Allis Chalmers and Simplicities in the 60s and 70s. Good Luck, Rick

My co-worker just asked what I was giggling about. :rolling:

 

 

 

The reason I ask is I am working to setup a rear PTO on mine and should I take the time to add a front one as well.   (I am in the design phase)

If there is a chance you might do a Front End Loader, it would be a nice addition.

Sears never had a front "PTO"  per say, everything was belt driven off the motor through the "mule drive" with pulleys.

Snow blower, mowing deck, sickle bar, chipper, etc. The pic below was from a sales brochure back in 68.

 

Now, you can add a custom mounted hydraulic pump and then go from there. A FEL would be a sweet addition!

 

Sears never had a rear pto anything, I am curious as to your ideas on accomplishing that.

The FF series had an optional front & rear PTO.   I would have to fab a second driveshaft to the rear and create mounting brackets for one of the gear reduction PTO boxes that are out there.   Since the front and rear PTO's for the FF tractor are not available anywhere, they have to be made.   I would create a drive shaft type mule pulley box.   With that I could run a PTO shaft out the front.  But I can't find a compelling use for it.  (I am glossing over the PTO speed part for shorter posts)

I never realized that!  Now that you say it, I had always thought it interesting that their tillers were self-powered, but failed to realize there was no rear PTO.

This makes a lot of sense.  If I ever wanted to put a front end loader on, it would reduce the effort.

Yes,  I really want to run an Auger off the back.  I have a lot of fence work coming up.

It will be a while.  My first project will probably be 1 inch trailer hubs for the front.  But I definitely will take and post photos.  I am just trying to think through the design.  I am thinking about using heavy duty cast iron deck spindle as the front bearing assembly.  I could come off one side for the front PTO and use the longer shaft one for the belt from the motor and the Drive shaft connection going to the rear PTO.

 

I found this interesting site for belt power transfer, bearing loads and belt speeds.  Just click the calculate button

I can solve your hubs quickly. I did a John Deere 300. Surpluscenter.com has "low speed hubs". They are 5 bolt on a 4.5 pattern. Same as the rears of many tractors. Then I used Deere 111 lawn tractor rear wheels/tires in an 18x8.50-8. Came out great. Just added a stud to the front axle instead of the factory bolt to pre load and hold the hub on.
