Find on my Farmking the shear pins break with the newer tractors with the electronic pto. The mechanical engage can run all harvest on one set of shear pins. I dont put the lock nuts in, just drop the shear bolts in, easier to change out.

I’d advise against tightening sheer bolts, just snug them and back off 1/2 to 1 turn. It’s true that they’re harder to break when tight, but it also transfers more of that abuse to either the tractor or auger. They can also be difficult to extract when tightened.

Even if you went through a box or two of sheer bolts and had to check them for tightness everyday, name a cheaper or easier to replace part on either the auger or tractor side.

If you are breaking that many, I would say there is something wrong with the sheer bolt coupler thingy. (What would that piece be called anyways??) Maybe it's wore and has some wiggle room to it? In my whole life have only broke maybe 5?

It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!

Isnít there a way to set the pto to kick in easier with the new we tractors

It's not the start it's the abrubt stop when it is shut off and the brake kicks on. Our new holland has a switch that keeps the brake from engaging so you can let it free wheel to a stop.

Keeping the shear bolts snug definately helps. I find that after a while the bolts get stressed and beat up some so I just change them out several times during harvest as insurance. Easy job to change on an empty auger while servicing unit vs midday with a plugged auger and a pile on the ground.

Having a tractor with the pto switch is defiantely harder on shear pins. Think the stopping with pto brake ias worse than the engagement. Might be worth deactivating the circuit for the pto brake so the unit coasts to a stop.

I run a 16104 with 150pto hp and running the same shear pins for 4 years. If the bin is getting full Iíll run the tractor 1400eng rpm or lower and the tractor will stall every time.
