Power take-offs and power take-off drive shafts.

Overview

This revised leaflet is aimed at all users of PTO-driven equipment. A tractor power take-off (PTO) and the power take-off drive shaft of a machine are very dangerous if used and not correctly guarded. This leaflet highlights points to consider when fitting the guards and how to clean and maintain them as well as how to use this type of machinery safely.
