We provide a variety of PTO drive shaft parts (also called power take-off shaft parts) or accessories such as clutches, tubes, yokes and any other accessories needed for your power take-off needs. The power take-off is used to transmit power from a tractor or other source of power to an implement. The 2 speeds most commonly used with tractor drive shafts are 540 and 1000 rpm and the PTO shafts can come in different sizes and lengths.
PTO Drive Shaft Parts For Your Tractor
There are different types of PTO shaft parts available for your tractor. Depending on the make and model of your tractor, you may need a half-shaft assembly, a constant velocity shaft, or both. All of these parts have different functions and must match the diameter of the tractor’s drive shaft. Having the right PTO shaft is essential to running a smooth, efficient tractor.
A PTO shaft transfers the power of a tractor to a tractor attachment. Without it, a tractor can’t move. This driveline is where everything that needs power on a tractor gets it. Although often overlooked during routine maintenance checks, PTO shafts are important components that need to be functioning properly. Learning more about PTO driveline/driveshaft parts will help you practice operating the tractor and its attached farm equipment.

Parts of a PTO Shaft
PTO Slip Clutch Parts
What do PTO slip clutch parts actually do? There are 8 spring-loaded bolts that hold 2 pieces of friction material between 2 ends of the clutch. This friction material spins against the ends to transfer force.
First of all, the power plate is what introduces the power to the stationary slip clutch. It spins within the clutch body covers. It’s made of high-carbon steel, so it’s tough and rust-proof. The springs in the clutch also provide flexibility to the clutch mechanism. The bolts pass through the springs and exert pressure on the springs, which increases friction inside the clutch. The bolts are usually the longest, which is why friction plates don’t have holes.
The slip clutch is easily broken, and sometimes just requires a small adjustment. Power tools and water should never be used to clean the inside of the clutch. If you’re having a hard time determining what’s wrong, you can try removing the clutch. You may also notice a burning smell, or excessive heat. A worn-out clutch is a serious problem. It’s not worth risking your safety by fixing a poorly functioning slip clutch. The PTO overrun clutch is also available.
PTO Joint Parts
PTO joint parts are crucial to the operation of your tractor. They transfer power from the engine to secondary components like hydraulic pumps, air compressors, or rotation and grip systems. PTO joint parts must fit the tractor’s specifications and your needs. If you’re in the market for a new tractor or power take-off joint, you’ll want to consider how much horsepower it’ll need to operate effectively. You should also consider the yoke’s spline number and the number of notches that connect to the tractor.
PTO Yoke Parts
A PTO yoke is 1 of the most important parts of a tractor. Without it, a tractor cannot work properly. It must be in an open position for the PTO to function. A good rule of thumb is to lubricate a yoke at least once a year. A poorly lubricated yoke can cause excessive wear. It is also important to keep the yoke lubricated to reduce friction.
PTO shafts have several types of yokes: external and internal yokes. The internal yokes are welded to the drive end while external yokes have a “Y” shape to attach to the U-joint. The female hole is more easily accessible in older models.
Generally, there are 2 types of yokes: spring-lock and quick-disconnect. These are the most common types of yokes. The spring-lock yokes are spring-loaded. While quick-disconnect yokes use a push-pin mechanism, a spring-loaded yoke use a snap-ring to prevent slipping. The yoke is a key component in attaching a tractor to the implement.
Another type of yokes is used in portable tractors. Flat belts were used on stationary engines, such as tractors. They were not as efficient on portable engines. The PTO yoke is essential in these types of machines. When the yoke is damaged, the tractor may not be able to function properly. If it fails to function properly, it can cause serious injury. These yokes should be replaced immediately.
PTO Shaft Shield
Another important part of a PTO is the shield. This shield protects the front joint of the drive shaft and is made of metal or plastic. The shield rotates along with the PTO, so it’s important that it’s secure and replaceable. Also, never wear loose clothing around rotating PTO shafts. This could lead to an accident. It’s important to choose a PTO implement guard that will prevent accidental pull-in injuries or contact with driveline components.
Besides the PTO shaft parts above, Ever-power carries a variety of tubes, clutches, and other components for agricultural equipment. Regardless of which part you need, you’ll be able to find it from Ever-Power. With its superior precision and short lead times, we can provide the right replacements for your tractor.

PTO Shaft for Agricultural Gearbox
Agricultural gearbox and PTO shaft: These components work together to transfer mechanical power between farm tractors. A PTO shaft converts engine energy into hydraulic pressure. This is what allows the tractor to pull heavy loads. When properly functioning, it reduces the risk of damage to the tractor and to the operator. When used properly, it is an important component of a tractor, but it can also become defective. When choosing an agricultural gearbox, consider the durability and mechanism of the product, as well as its materials. A durable gearbox will last for many years, avoiding repeated replacements. A high-quality agricultural gearbox will be durable for many years to come, and you don’t want to end up replacing it for a while. This can be costly, so consider your needs when purchasing an agricultural gearbox and PTO shaft.
