When I bought my Ariens, it was missing the rear pto. The owner said he pulled it off to put on his 318. How easily it fit, I don't know. Kind of what I imagined you are working towards.


That is what I am thinking, just looking at the back of it they both look the same.
If I could figure out one then I should be able to do the same to the other.

Over in the Ariens forum, there is a picture of a Ariens clutched rear pto in a New Holland. On that one he used a different connection to complete it. I need to find it and check it again.

Robert, just do like I do and use the normal female quick attach PTO shaft.  I bought a piece of 15 spline shafting, then ground a groove in it so it will lock into the PTO on the tractor.  Then grind another groove for the pto part to lock into.

I went & pulled it out for a pic.  It only needs 2 grooves, but I made the first groove to go into the tractor's pto too far in, which left too much shaft sticking out and didn't give room for my tiller pto shaft.  So I cut the center groove to shorten it.  The left end goes into the tractor.   Works perfectly.

Daniel,  That is kind of what I was looking for. It is going to be a little while before I can do anything with this project due to having knee surgery back in July. I am still on "limited weight" restriction and have to use crutches to get around.  But at least I have a starting plan.  I looked at the deck the other day and I think I have an idea of how to attach the uprights and braces, will just be a matter of working it all out.

Daniel, what do you think about using the front PTO shaft (actually the MID PTO shaft)   the one that you hook the mower drive shaft to?  Unless I have thrown it away, I have at least one of those shafts in the garage somewhere.....lol

 

 

EDIT......nevermind, that shaft wont work without a lot of work.  The grooves are too close to the end of the shaft.

My shaft actually was a front PTO shaft out of a Simplicity Sunstar.  I used a 4 1/2" angle grinder to make my grooves

Daniel, I looked at the JD shaft last night and it is only splined about an inch on either end and smooth in the middle.  I would be concerned about the shaft not going far enough up into the PTO gearbox so I will probably just order one that is completely splined and then I can cut the groove for the collar lock where I need it.

 

Thanks guys.

 

I am going back to work Monday on "OFFICE DUTY ONLY" per my surgeon (I am still having to use a crutch to put "partial weight" on my right knee) and wont be able to work on this project for at least a month or so (well I am not SUPPOSED to be anyway)  I have a couple of projects that I would like to get started on so I may spend some time cleaning out the barn at Dana's house to give me a place to work and then when I feel like it, I can pull up a stool and tinker.......lol

On that second one, it says it is weldable, I guess a person could get a double ended male that has splines on both ends and weld that piece on the end of the shaft right??
