*Not compatible with some subcompact tractor PTO splines measuring less than 3 inches (i.e. Kubota BX, B or LX series). Also not compatible with John Deere 2520, Kioti CS2510 or Yanmar SA424 tractors…yet (See the PTO Link™ Compact version for these listed models)! Also not compatible with some pull-behind implements using a “2-stage” or dual implement driveline (e.g., John Deere MX10 and Land Pride RCR2596 models).Buy Now
Most of PTO Link™ customers do NOT need to shorten their driveline to accommodate the 5 inches added by PTO Link™. However, everyone should verify whether this is necessary by first evaluating and comparing the following measurements (a) and (b):
See Link Below – for Video of these Instructions
(a) Before installing PTO Link™ and when the implement is fully connected to your tractor AND is sitting on level ground, measure the maximum distance the implement driveline slides in during a hydraulic lift, then ADD 1 inch to that measurement;
(b) Install each PTO Link™ plate to the tractor and implement, but do NOT connect the plates. Then measure the distance between the two installed PTO Link™ plates (make sure they are facing square to each other) when the driveline is fully collapsed (bottomed out).
(b – 2nd option) If you don’t have the PTO Link™ plates yet, you can estimate measurement (b) by simulating the length added by the PTO Link™, by measuring the distance between the tip of the tractor PTO male spline and the tip of the Implement female receiver (make sure they are facing square to each other) when the driveline is fully collapsed (bottomed out), then SUBTRACT 3 inches. Note: this measurement is for estimation purposes only. The most accurate measurement (when determining whether to cut the driveline) is best measured once the PTO Link™ is installed.
Take the above measurements and compare the following:
1. If (a) is less than or equal to (b), then no adjustment is necessary.
2. If (a) is greater than (b), then the difference [(a) minus (b)] is the recommended amount to shorten the driveline.
Options: Of course, an alternative to shorten the driveline is to install a quick-hitch system to your 3 point hitch (e.g., Pat’s Easy Change, iMatch, etc.) which lengthens the distance between your tractor and implement and tends to offset most of the PTO driveline length added by PTO Link™.

Currently the PTO Link™ system works with most 6 spline PTO (540 RPM) tractors under *100 HP. Must have 3 inches of vertical clearance from the center of the PTO spline on the back of the tractor.
*Excludes certain subcompact tractors with 6 spline PTOs under 3 inches in length (Kubota BX, B or LX series, John Deere 2520, or Kioti CS2510 tractors)
*Coming SOON! The NEW Compact is designed to work for Tractor PTO splines less than 3 inches (e.g. Kubota BX, B & LX Series) or John Deere 2520 and the Kioti CS2510, which are not compatible with our current model.
