The drive shafts must be attached to the tractor’s power take-off (PTO) and to the implement’s one (PIC, PowerInput Connection). Eurocardan offers a wide range of fastening to meet different application needs.
Seen that the PTO shaft associated to the implement has some characteristics of transmissible power, length, safety devices which make it suitable only to be used on that machine, it is not recommended to use the same driveshaft on different machines. For this reason, usually at the driveshaft is released from the tractor PTO and is left attached to the implement’s PIC. To facilitate this operation, the drive shaft is equipped with quick locking devices at tractor side while at the implement side it is preferable to choose a more stable attachment.
The different kind of of fastening systems of the yokes available are listed here below. Other typologies are available on request.
