Tell me about Cub PTOs
Posted April 03, 2011 - 01:28 AM
I have a 1572 Super cub.
I was taking the fuel tank off last weekend due to a clogged filter and noticed a splined shaft sticking out the back of the hydro pump.
Is this supposed to be used as a PTO to the rear? Is there a kit to extend it to the back?
Not that I want to use it, but always interested! (And there is 0% chance I will find the kit over here).

That happens around here all too often.
Lol doesn't it figure that you go to do one thing and that is the only thing you don't end up doing?

Easy to get distracted! The funny thing is I keep walking past the Cub but just dont think about it.

This is the shaft, under the fuel tank.
You can kinda see the cutout in the fuel tank where it comes out
Sorry about the photos, just used my phone, and the tractor is a bit rammed in with other machines.

That shaft is Live when the engine is running.It runs the whole length of the hydro pump and connects directly to the driveshaft.
My 127 has a shaft similar to that sticking out of it.
The rear PTOs are the same ones (atleast with the narrow frame cub cadets) used on the old Farmall Cubs

Would be interested in some pictures of the blade too. Was thinking about making one for snow.
