PTO Link™ Compact – Star System (1 tractor & 4 Implements)
The PTO Link™ Compact system is specifically designed to work for most subcompact and compact tractors up to 40 HP*. The PTO Link™ system is designed to quickly and safely connect/disconnect tractors and implements at the PTO… in seconds! The PTO Link™ is the original, universal quick-connect system that consists of two interconnecting plates (female and male). For best results, every tractor should have the Tractor Plate (Female) installed and every implement with a PTO driveline should have an Implement Plate (Male) installed.
- Works with rear 6-spline 540 RPM PTO for tractors up to 40 HP*
- Easily connect your mower, shredder, tiller or any PTO driven implement in seconds
- Simple one-step installation for each plate and easy removal. No special tools or extra installation hardware required (i.e., no set screws, snap rings or retaining clips)
- Built to last (AISI 4140 hardened alloy steel with QPQSM finish)
- Safety Plunger Pin included with every tractor (female) plate (extras ordered separately)
- When fully installed, the PTO Link™ Compact system adds approximately 4.5 inches to the overall length of the driveline.
- The PTO Link™ system is NOT an adapter. To be in compliance with ASABE standards, do not use PTO Link™ in combination with PTO adapters.
- Manufacturer’s warranty covers all manufacturing defects in materials or workmanship of all PTO Link™ parts for one year from the date of purchase.
- NOTICE for Kubota BX tractors ONLY! The specially designed Lift Arm Stabilizer Replacement Plate is required when using in conjunction with the PTO Link™ Compact system on all BX series tractors. This REPLACEMENT plate retains all of the functionality of the original Kubota part, but shortens its overall length to avoid making any contact with the PTO Link™ system when the lift arm hydraulics are in full-lift position. See more details and pricing HERE.
