86' 430, 3-point, 2000rpm rear PTO, 60" deck, 54" blade, triple bag/tilt dump MCS units
That’s as rare as rocking horse $4!7, so if you find one and need it, buy it. There’s several threads on here where some were modded and even used to run a small 540rpm bush hog. David Thewes was his name, his user name was jdmaninlouky. The site has been updated since then And I can’t find a thread to link you to it. He ruined one of the gearboxes before putting a slipper clutch on the pto shaft.Any opinions on the 540pto kit from the 1800 utv?
Just remember slip clutches require routine maintenance so as to not freeze up. (And therefore defeat their purpose)That was my exact concern, but I may be in luck. Waiting to hear back from a friend so we will see what happens with that. Ive heard a few people talk of this conversion but as stated its no longer up, so it looks like ill have to be cautious with it if im able to acquire one. My M4 has a shear pin setup on it and I was planning on switching it to a clutch just for the safety of the gearbox. Ive never set one before so ill have to do some reading, but im sure I can figure it out. Farm I work at has an old JD tiller laying in the weeds that was too small for their uses so they left it, so I may grab the clutch of that and see what I can come up with. Thanks again for any input.
