What This Warranty Covers / This warranty cover’s defects in materials or workmanship of the PTO Link™ parts only. The length of warranty is one year from the date of purchase.
Our warranty is only valid within or under the following Operational Specifications:
Maximum Tractor HP: 100 HP (Engine-Net); Combined maximum torque output: 1100 ft-lbs. for a 540 RPM PTO.
Proper Matching of Implement with Tractor: The HP rating for implements installed with PTO Link™ should NEVER EXCEED your tractor’s PTO HP rating. Any implements that exceed this rating should NOT have PTO Link™ installed and any such use will void the warranty. For more information on the proper matching of your implement to your tractor, please refer to your local tractor dealer and or your tractor’s operation manual.
Use of Separate Safety Plunger Pin in High Torque or Reverse Torque or PTO Auto-Brake Scenarios: For any tractor / implement combinations in which high torque output (> 650 ft. lbs at a 540 RPM PTO) or reverse torque on the PTO shaft could possibly be experienced (e.g., flex-wing mowers, heavy duty shredders, tillers, augers, etc.) must also have the enclosed zinc plated safety plunger pin (1⁄2” diameter, 1.5” length) installed. Prior to installing the plunger pin, first install the PTO Link™ plates on the tractor (female plate) and implement (male plate) then engage the male/female coupling, rotating the four male studs counter-clockwise into the four female teardrop openings until the safety spring loaded shear/locking pin has locked. Note the aligned 1⁄2” opening through both plates of the connected PTO Link™ system, positioned 180° across the plate, opposite the safety spring loaded shear/locking pin. To install the safety plunger pin, place tip of the pin into the 1⁄2” opening on the tractor plate. With the head of the safety plunger pin always facing the tractor, push the pin through the aligned 1⁄2” openings on both plates. The wedge of the plunger pin (now emerging from the implement side plate) will release its internal spring and secure both plates together. NOTE: ANY tractors equipped with a PTO auto–brake (reverse safety switch) must always have this safety plunger pin affixed prior to using this product. Any use of PTO Link™ with the PTO auto-brake (reverse safety switch) and/or high torque or reverse torque scenarios, without this safety plunger pin properly installed will damage the product and immediately void the warranty. It is therefore recommended to always install the safety plunger pin. When the PTO Link™ system is not in use, affix the safety plunger pin through the 1⁄2” opening on the tractor plate for safe storage.
Length Added To Driveline: Once installed, PTO Link™ will lengthen the driveline approximately 5 inches. Therefore, adjust (cut) the driveline as necessary to be certain it is short enough to compensate for the added length of PTO Link™ and for short turning or steep inclines. Prior to installing the PTO Link™ system, see enclosed instructions on whether to shorten an implement driveline, for further clarification. Straight drivelines are always desirable. Excess angularity run out or length to the driveline caused by: a) short turning (greater than 60°) or b) steep incline/decline pitches (greater than 15°) can damage PTO Link™, possibly damage other equipment, injure the operator and void the warranty.
Replacement Spring Loaded Safety Shear Pin: In the event of a shear pin replacement, always apply Loctite® Threadlocker Red 271 on the threads of the shear pin housing then wrench tighten on to the receiving threads of the PTO Link™ tractor plate.
* VARIABLES TO CONSIDER IN DETERMINING PROPER DISTANCE AND THE LENGTH OF YOUR IMPLEMENT SHAFT WHILE USING PTO LINK™:
- The height of your tractor’s PTO spline from the ground
- Implement Type (pull behind vs. 3 point hitch)
- The use or absence of a Quick Hitch System (e.g.,Pat’s Quick Hitch, iMatch, etc.)
- Length and angle of the implement shaft.
- Distance of the ball bearing notches and ball bearing placement from each tip end of the PTO and implement receiver.
- The angle and range of distance of upward / downward travel of hydraulic lifts.
- The topography type of the land (flat, hilly, ditches, creek beds, inclines, etc.)
- THE SAYING GOES, “Measure twice and cut once”. But we say, “MEASURE TWICE and CALL US BEFORE YOU CUT.”
