how to fit a pto shaft cover

* A new PTO shaft cover from well known brands such as Magdalena or Walterscheid typically costs €100-€110 plus VAT. Replace any damaged covers today.

* Your local dealer normally stocks PTO shafts and covers.

* With regular greasing, the original PTO cover can last as long as the machine.

* Ensure the metal guard is fitted to the tractor and the plastic guard to the machine.

* When a suitable cover cannot be fitted because the shaft is worn or old, a new power shaft complete with cover should be fitted.

* Be extra careful of exposed universal joint knuckles - when these are rotating it is impossible to see their outer extremities, and therefore very easy to get caught.
