Understanding PTO Shafts

Power Take Off (PTO) shafts serve as a critical component in most heavy machinery, acting as a mechanical gearbox which transfers the power of an engine into another piece of equipment. These can be found in a variety of machines, from tractors to water pumps and generators.

Benefits of PTO Shafts without Connecting Yokes

  • Greater flexibility: Without a connecting yoke, users have more freedom to match the PTO shaft with different machinery and configurations.
  • Higher compatibility: These PTO shafts are designed to fit with a variety of machines, making them a versatile choice for many applications.
  • Customizable: PTO shafts without connecting yokes can be tailored to specific needs, ensuring optimal performance.
  • Easy to install: The absence of a connecting yoke simplifies the installation process, saving time and effort.
  • Durable: Constructed from high-quality materials, these PTO shafts can withstand rigorous use and harsh conditions, promising a long service life.

Choosing the Right PTO Shaft

When selecting a PTO shaft, it’s important to consider the following parameters:


The distance between the driving device and the receiving device must be accurately measured to ensure the PTO shaft fits properly.

Rated Power

The PTO shaft must be capable of handling the machine’s power output without causing damage or suffering from premature wear.

Shaft Type and Connection Method

Consider the type of shaft and its connection method. Options include splined, keyed, and flanged shafts, each offering different benefits.

Torque Transmission Capacity

The PTO shaft should have a sufficient torque transmission capacity to handle the machine’s workload.

Environmental Requirements

Consider the working environment of the PTO shaft. Ensure it has suitable protection, sealing performance, and durability for the specific conditions.

Safety Features

Look for safety features such as reliable anti-jamming devices and safety pins to prevent accidents during operation.


Ensure the PTO shaft is compatible with the equipment it will be connected to. This includes matching the size, connection type, and power requirements.


Check for certifications such as CE marking, which indicates the PTO shaft meets European safety, health, and environmental protection requirements.

Choosing the Right Connecting Yoke for PTO Shaft

When selecting a connecting yoke for a PTO shaft, consider the following:

Transmission Power and Torque

Determine the required transmission power and torque of the PTO shaft. This will help to identify the strength and capacity of the connecting yoke to ensure it can withstand the expected load.

Yoke Size and Connection Requirements

Ensure the size of the connecting yoke matches the shaft diameter and connection requirements of the PTO shaft for a safe and reliable connection.

Type and Shape of Connecting Yoke

Select the type and shape of the connecting yoke that suits the design and requirements of the PTO shaft. Common types include cross-type and hook-type connecting yokes.

Environmental and Application Requirements

Consider the environment and application requirements when selecting a connecting yoke. Certain materials and designs may be more suitable for specific conditions or workloads.

The Importance of CE Certification

CE certification is a vital aspect to consider when choosing a PTO shaft:

Compliance with EU Regulations and Standards

A CE marking indicates the PTO shaft complies with relevant European Union regulations and standards. This ensures the design, manufacture, and usage of the PTO shaft meet the requirements of the European market, providing basic safety guarantees.

Necessary for European Market Entry

For PTO shafts sold in the European market, CE certification is a necessary condition for market entry.

Reliable Safety Performance Guarantee

CE certification provides a reliable guarantee for the safety performance of the PTO shaft.

Confidence in Product Quality and Safety

A PTO shaft with CE certification conveys confidence in the product’s quality and safety.

Safety in Using PTO Shafts

When using PTO shafts, it’s important to follow safety guidelines:

Personal Protective Equipment

Always wear appropriate personal protective equipment when operating machinery with a PTO shaft.

Familiarise with the Operator’s Manual

Read and understand the operator’s manual before using the PTO shaft. This will provide important information on the correct usage and safety precautions.

Regular Inspection and Maintenance

Regularly inspect and maintain the PTO shaft to ensure it remains in good condition and operates safely.

Prevent Clothing Entanglement

Avoid wearing loose clothing that could become entangled in the PTO shaft during operation.

Keep Clear During Operation

Ensure no one is near the PTO shaft when it’s in operation.

PTO Shaft Structure and Materials

A PTO shaft comprises several parts:


The housing protects the internal components of the PTO shaft from damage and contamination.

Drive Shaft

The drive shaft transfers the power from the engine to the other machine.

Universal Joint

The universal joint allows the drive shaft to rotate at different angles, enabling power transmission between misaligned shafts.

Protective Cover

The protective cover shields the PTO shaft from external elements, reducing wear and prolonging its lifespan.


The connectors attach the PTO shaft to the engine and the machine it’s powering.

We also sell individual parts for those looking to replace specific components of their PTO shaft.

PTO Shaft Applications

PTO shafts can be used in a variety of applications:

Agricultural Machinery

PTO shafts are commonly used to connect tractors to agricultural equipment such as mowers, harvesters, straw crushers, sprayers, mixers, and more.

Industrial Equipment

PTO shafts are used to drive various rotating equipment such as pumps, generators, centrifuges, mixers, and more.

Transport Equipment

PTO shafts are also used to drive certain transport equipment such as trailers, semi-trailers, and trolleys.

Solar Systems

PTO shafts are often used to rotate and adjust solar panel trackers in solar systems.

How to Adjust the Length of a PTO Shaft

Adjusting the length of a PTO shaft involves the following steps:

Remove the Plastic Protective Cover

Start by removing the plastic protective cover from the PTO shaft.

Shorten the Inner and Outer Tubes

According to the required length, shorten the inner and outer tubes by the same length at once.

Deburr with a File

Use a file to remove any burrs that may have been created during the cutting process.

Shorten the Inner and Outer Plastic Tubes

Similarly, shorten the inner and outer plastic tubes according to the required length. Again, the inner and outer tubes should be shortened by the same length at once.

Oil the Steel Inner Tube and Reinstall the Protective Cover

Oil the steel inner tube and then reinstall the drive shaft plastic protective cover.
