 3 point rotary tiller/PTO spline question

Hey folks,
I just took delivery of my new Kubota BX2350. One of the implements I got is the LandPride RTR0550 rotary tiller.

Quick question re: PTO hookup; when I went to disconnect the tiller (which was on the tractor at delivery) in order to go retrieve my box blade from the lawn where the hauler had left it, I noticed that the driveline/u-joint connection to the tractor came off of the splines fairly easily, just by retracting the driveline in on itself by hand.

The tiller engaged and spun-up OK during my test of my unit at the dealer, so I assume this hookup was correct, but it just seemed weird to me that the hookup was presumably held onto the tractor shaft merely by friction and supposely the tension of the small safety chain (attached from the shaft to a lower link on the tractor) holding the driveline safety cover on.

Do I have this correct, that just seating the u-joint firmly onto the splines is the only action needed to hook the shaft to the tractor? Or is there some kind of pin that I need to connect laterally through the shaft, or something else to lock it on there?

For your info, the owner's manual for the tiller says my unit comes with a "pull collar coupling", for what that's worth.

Thanks,
Mike in NC

The pto shaft should lock in place. It's entirely possible that it will work for awhile unlocked but it's not a good thing. If you look at the tractor end splines there is a grove around the circumference of the shaft. PTO shafts have a lock assembly designed to lock onto that groove, usually with a pushbutton or slip ring collar style of lock. You push the button or pull the collar back when sliding the pto shaft in place and the it should lock in solid. Keep it clean and greased and it should go pretty easy.

Thanks KW,
I'll be sure to folo these steps when I put the tiller back on the tractor. I replaced the PTO shaft cover on the tractor, so I'll be keeping that spline nice and clean like you recommend.
Thanks again,
Mike

Mike, congradulations on you new equipment, you will get the hang of things pretty quick. I've used LandPride equipment for years and have always been pleased with the quality of work they do and their durability. Last spring I almost bought a revers rotaion tiller but ended up with a regular front rotation Land Pride. They sat side by side on the dealer lot, I would have like to have bought both of them, but I haven't won the Powerball yet. Keep us informed on how you like the reverse rotation tiller. Frank.

You will love that Kubota BX2350 Sub Compact. Great tractor. I am glad to hear the Landpride has a good tiller. We have been a happy BushHog Dealer but have just taken on Land pride equipment.

It is very possible the pto shaft was not pushed on sufficient at the dealership for it to be locked in place. A little dirt or such can also interfere with the pto shaft locking sometimes. If you can pull it off without releasing a locking device, do not run it. It can be dangerous. Though if it is coming off, sure rather have it come off tractor end than implement end.

While you have it off the tractor is a good time to work it looking at how it locks so you honestly can do it with your eyes closed for they are hard to see with the safety shields. kt

 3 point rotary tiller/PTO spline question

Greetings guys,
I used my FEL this past weekend to bust out a stump of a little tree that fell on our property in heavy storms here in NC the previous week. Worked great. Cut up the trunk and hauled it to the pile with the FEL. Worked great! Really useful tool. Still getting comfortable with curling/lowering-raising the boom while backing up, etc., but it'll be second nature soon.

I read in the BX2350 owner's manual that the safety sheild over the pto shaft flips up, for easier collar locking when re-attaching the tiller driveline. I'm going to mow this weekend, but then plan to reattach the tiller properly for garden work.

Happy (almost) spring to all,
Mike

KT,
Yes, we did get hit by that bad front... but I wouldn't say we got nailed (which is the word I'd normally use). The gusts were "only" 60mph but no successive lines of tornados or anything that bad. Did get tons of rain, which we desperately needed... Are you guys in SC also in a drought? I know GA and AL are, but was sure hw far southeast the problem goes.
Best- Mike

Mike, I live about 25 miles west of Myrtle Beach. Last year was drying than normal but nothing like further in land was. There was a period of about 3 or 4 weeks our lawn turned as brown as if it were winter. So far this year we have had good rains. Tried driving in a field yesterday afternoon and it is still boggy. Yet, hit a pile of dry dirt in a low wooded area. River closest to me is full but swamps and ponds I think are still on the low side. Our pond looks to be about 2 to 3 feet lower than normal this time of year. Very much aware that part of NC is/was very dry also. kt
