REPLACE MISSING PTO SHIELDS AT DISCOUNT PRICES

BY LYNN BLIVEN
AGRICULTURE & NATURAL RESOURCES ISSUE LEADER


Winter may not be the time you are thinking about using some of those parked pieces of machinery but as you walk by them take a good look at the PTO shields. We all know that damaged or missing shields can be the cause of serious injuries or even death. The typical PTO running at 540 RPM can wrap an arm or leg around the shaft nine times in one second. Yes, replacement shields are expensive and sure as rain you'll just get the new one on and some yahoo will damage it, somehow. But the truth is these are just excuses. So, as the fast- talking salesman says; "Have I got a deal for you."

A program offered through the New York Center for Agriculture Medicine and Health (NYCAMH) can provide replacement PTO shields at substantially reduced cost. There are two shields available depending on your needs and each shield comes with a bearing assortment to make retrofits easy. Prices range from $59.00 to $83.00 depending on the unit needed. Measure the bottom of
the bearing groove to find the size needed. If the diameter is 2 1/8 inches or smaller order part number AS20090. If the diameter is larger than 2 1/8 inches order part number AS30090.

An added feature of the replacement shield is the Bare-Co Patent lever release shaft guard which allows the guard to be pulled back to get to those hard-to-reach grease fittings. So if you are thinking that the missing shield makes it easier to grease the universal joint that problem is solved.

Order your replacement PTO shields by calling NYCAMH at 800-343-7527 or visit website at https://www.nycamh.org/programs-and-services/pto-shield.php.

Your family, your workers and you all deserve a better chance to stay safe and healthy around the farm.
