4630 pto

Have a customer I need to split and replace his 1000 pto as it twisted on a bale pro. Anyways JD here in Alberta wants 1200$ For the shaft?? Seems pretty steep, does A&I make a shaft for this unit of any jobber? Or are we stuck with OEM ?

maybe after your customer ponies up the 1200 bucks plus your labor, he might get his head out of his ass and stop operating his shredder like an idiot

AB has a very good point, I have two of them tractors and they have lots of 9' snow blower experience, have replaced a few pto clutches but how does the shaft bend?

Bet the clutch is also shot

They twist them by severely overloading the machine by improperly operating it. He's speaking of one of those bale shredders. Another culprit is tub grinders. Its where you are shock loading the drive and needless to say, the weakest component fails. Obviously there are means to ensure this does not occur which the vast majority of guys utilize but you always get a few that don't. Only one I ended up fixing that was corkscrewed was the internal shaft in a White 2-150, hadn't been effecting it really, just come across it when I split it to do the clutch.

You don't need to split a 4630 to replace the pto shaft. Unbolt it and yard it out.

Yup unbolt the back cover and slide it out. We changed one on our 4630 after Jack knifing a spreader. We have run a couple bale processors and never twisted the pto both a haybuster and a pats tub grinder.

It's a PS trans it needs the double split , that part I know and have done before.
I'm just wondering on the parts end if there is a jobber out there.
How the customer wrecked it is neither here nor there at this point of the game.
I can advise him on running the bale shredder with more care but that's about it.

A&I may have that shaft, I bought a main power shaft from them for a White 8700 combine (from the flex plate of the motor to the main drive pulleys for the combine). Installed it in the combine and and found out it was too large (0.010" to 0.015" oversize) where the main pulleys fit on the shaft and had to pull it to get remachined or else wait 2 weeks for a replacement. Not saying that I wouldn't use A&I again its just something to keep in mind when dealing with them.

Sounds like you don't have any of the CDroms for the aftermarket parts, but both A&I and Hy Capacity have their catalogs available online, only I don't think you get any pricing that way.

Set yourself up as a dealer thru one of your suppliers and then you will not only get the catalogs on CDrom and print if you want, but also your dealer pricing and customer retail is all listed out as well.

Very true, how the shaft got toasted isn't the issue anymore, however I seldom make a effort to try to save those kind of operators money, more often than not your efforts are not rewarded. When I was doing lots of fixing I was almost to the point where I was going to paint up a sign on 4X8 sheet of plywood and nail to my transformer pole at the fork in my driveway...A lack of planning on your part, DOES NOT constitute an emergency on mine!
I think that line is rather self explanatory
