Purchased a relatively new 70554 chipper (3 months old, garage kept) for my New Holland tractor. The previous owner had a Simplicity tractor and had to have the PTO shaft cut very small. Now the distance is too long between the chipper and my tractor's PTO shaft. Ordered a new shaft (~$200 - ouch!) but found that removing the old shaft from the chipper was VERY difficult. Is it supposed to be so tight? It's a keyway locking mechanism and, according to Crary, it should slide off with little difficulty (two bolts at 90-degree offset keep it on the chipper shaft). Any similar experiences?

Boomer1530,

Most people don't address these problems as they should.

The previous owner probably never guessed that the shaft would someday have to be removed from the chipper.

On nearly every semi-permanent installation, (pulleys, sprockets, head bolts, drive shafts, etc.) a small amount of anti-seize compound should be used. Rarely do you find this, unless the equipment was assembled by a professional dealer.

If you somehow manage to get the PTO shaft loose from the chipper, be sure to apply a small amount of anti-seize paste to the chipper's shaft prior to installing the new PTO shaft.

To remove the old shaft, apply a little penetrating oil, heat, and vibration. Works wonders on most anything that's stuck.

Joel ....

Hard to believe if the cutter is only three months old it would be rusted so tight unless it has something like salt or fertlizer on it some how. I fully agree with Joel but be 100% sure you are getting it released. If you have the new shaft in hand look at it carefully to be sure there is no spring loaded release.

BTW, the cut shaft, don't toss it, you probably can buy the replacement shafts for it using the ends which is much of the cost. kt ....
