It worked great, but last year I raised the bush hog hitch too high and bent the PTO shaft. This summer I ordered a new shaft from Everything Attachment. They didn’t have a class 5 in stock so they sent me a class six. I decided my problem was the hitch set up on the bush hog- made for a taller tractor like an old International. I lowered the hitch and bolted it on. In the bush hog by itself pic you can see the 2 black dots where I drilled the holes in the angle iron. It made all the difference. I have plenty of clearance.
I had no problem lining it up and sliding it on the PTO but could not get it past the first 1 inch or so. I was able to push the collar foward wich should have allowed the ball bearings to retact and let the driveline slide all the way onto the PTO and lock on. What am I doing wrong!?!? I added grease and sprayed the driveline with WD40 to help.
I also tried to attach my post hole digger and had no problems.

In the classical world of Greece and Rome and in all earlier times, there was no hay. Civilization could exist only in warm climates where horses could stay alive through the winter by grazing. Without grass in winter you could not have horses, and without horses you could not have urban civilization. Some time during the so-called dark ages, some unknown genius invented hay, forests were turned into meadows, hay was reaped and stored, and civilization moved north over the Alps.
Hay as a business is complicated and risky, requiring large outlays for equipment and labor, and a steady market. When you’re buying, good hay seems scarce and expensive; when you’re selling, there always seems to be a glut. This FAQ is for small farm and property owners who want to cut hay from meadows and fields for their own use or for casual sale. Cutting your own hay, either alone or in a cooperative with neighbors or a custom baler, may not pay down the mortgage, but it lets you control the quality of the feed you give your animals, and if you have access to fields and haying equipment, can cut down on feed bills.
The Problem Everyone that has a tractor and a shredder has the same issue, pound the implements female connector on to the tractors spline and to take it off, pound or pry it off.

Nothing on your tractor is stronger or more durable!
Oct 23, · Re: Bush Hog Connecting PTO shaft I had the same problem with hooking up my JD rototiller. It was quite easy to take the collar off the PTO shaft and install a lighter spring so that the collar was easier to pull back.
Bush hogging will chew up and spit out high weeds, brush, and saplings up to 1 inch in diameter. Some can even be towed to the side of a lawn tractor, allowing you to bush hog the first swath, then finish mow at the same time you bush hog the next row…. If you do have a bigger tractor, you can tow a bigger bush hog attachment. How to Bush Hog Choose a rotary cutter the right size for your tractor.
Choose your rotary cutter using these criteria: Similarly, if you have a 30 hp tractor, buy a hp cutter. A 40 hp tractor can handle a 6 ft wide cutting deck.

Choosing, Mounting and Using a Bush Hog Type Mower by Francis Robinson Looking around at my new neighbors, most of whom are city raised and have recently acquired their first mini-farms of five to fifteen acres and also from reading questions ask at various discussion sites on the web it is frighteningly apparent that a great many guys and a few gals are learning by trial and error and mostly error how to use a very dangerous piece of farm equipment.
It is also very apparent that these folks are getting a lot of very poor and often very dangerous advice from people who are often even more poorly informed than they are but still more than willing to portray themselves as experts. If I am going to claim to be the expert here, I guess I should give my basic credentials in order to assure you that I am not just into my second year on three or four acres.
I was born into farming in when my dads 9N Ford Ferguson tractor was still just a couple of years old. By we had three tractors and today I farm with nine tractors. My first experience with a “bush-hog” type mower was about with a pull type Continental borrowed from a good friend and neighbor.
There are bush hog attachments available that can be towed by an ATV, UTV, or riding mower. Some can even be towed to the side of a lawn tractor, allowing you to bush hog the first swath, then finish mow at the same time you bush hog the next g your mowing time in half if .
They are both made to be attached to a tractor, they are large and made to cut acres instead of lawns and they are solid and sturdy steel decks that are built for a lifetime of use. The difference is that a bush hog is made for rough-cutting high grasses and weeds on your property, while a finishing mower is made to make the area that has been cut look well groomed. The most important aspect of this conversion are the blades. Once jacked or raised, place jack stands beneath the deck to ensure it cannot fall.
Each blade will have a center nut that attaches it to a bearing shaft. Use the correct wrench that attaches to the center nut. Unscrew each nut; there may be three of them depending on what type and design of bush hog you have. Take off each blade. If the blade is stuck on the bearing shaft once unscrewed, tap the blade lightly until it falls off. These blades will not be as heavy-duty as the original bush hog blades, but they will give a superior cut on any type of grass. Allow the deck to rest on the surface as it would if it was cutting grass.
Tractors The 3-Point hitch system for rear attached implements is both loved and hated. We all love the relative consistency and compatibility between rear attachments and tractors. Essentially every tractor made in the last 30 years has a 3-point hitch. This level of compatibility is extremely valuable, allowing manufacturers to freely innovate on both sides of the hitch.

Then there are things not found on a vehicle: This is where equipment attaches to the tractor. High and low gear. While they are designed to pull heavy equipment, tractors can flip if they are attached incorrectly to something like a stump. Most tractors do not do well on slopes and hillsides and may well turn over. It is no different than using a lawnmower in a ditch, just on a larger scale. Bush Hog This is basically a large tractor-mounted lawn mower, but designed to work with heavy brush.
The bush hog attaches to the tractor via the three point hitch. Power is supplied to the bush hog through a drive shaft which slides over the PTO. The drive shaft of the bush hog is a danger zone.
