  • 90 degree PTO angle
  • Greetings, 2N-ers; I want to place a manure pump at a 90 degree angle to the top of the dam holding my pond. The top of the dam is too narrow to turn the tractor to hook up straight to the pump. Is there a 90 degree angle set up to use on the tractor to work this pump? Thanks, Gary

  • This may be a silly question, but why not a 90 degree elbo on the pump intake or just a piece of hose with a 90 degree radius curve. Those heavy 2 or 3 inch hoses would easily turn 90 degrees with a 3 or 4 foot radius. Just a thought...

  • How will the shaft clear the rear wheel/tire?

  • I was thinking of , maybe ,something like a post hole driver mounted sideways.

  • How about the PTO belt drive, take the belt pulley off and attach a shaft?

  • Farmer Dan, This might work. Attach a PTO shaft from the tractor to the beltless pulley which has been bolted down on a small trailer, then fit another PTO shaft from the beltless pulley to the manure pump. I'll have to look into this more in the spring when I can access my PTO. Thanks everyone for your inputs. Gary
