Default Wow !! How NOT to stop a dog fight !!

My son sent me this clip ... it's a good reason to have a PTO shaft cover. I've removed a couple of mine as the shaft is just too damn difficult to get on with the cover attached. After looking at this I might rethink that !!

Used plenty of PTO equipment growing up, most without any shaft covers. They were just idiots.

I don't know about with new equipment, but the old ones were made of plastic, became brittle and generally damaged not really providing the cover of the shaft.

Yes I sell machinery with PTO shafts, correct & nothing has changed, still destroy themselves, same as you remember

A PTO shaft should be treated with the same respect you would give the Boom end of a gun basically.

You won't get a second chance is the probable outcome.

I watched the video with great trepidation, as I didn't want to see the dogs get hurt.

I'm pleased the dogs didn't get hurt.

I'd think that bloke was quite likely killed - he went around quite a few times like a dish rag. If the PTO was doing 400rpm. or so, he wouldn't be too good when they finally got him off.

I quite agree about treating PTO's like the business end of a firearm. Loose clothes or pieces of rope etc. can easily get caught in them and pull you with them. I just hope to heck it never happens to me.

Crazy-but the guy was asking for it to happen leaning on it like that. Is a cover really necessary? I don't have the experience with tractors like many of you would, but I always just made sure it wasn't running whenever I had to go near it. It's like safety on a rifle-I rarely use it because I much prefer to have no way for it to go bang regardless, so no round chambered at the times the safety would be on

Maybe there is a need to work around a running pto shaft that I don't know about though.

Current WHS legislation pretty much requires that if it can happen, you must assume it will, and take ALL reasonably practicable measures to protect against it. I can't imagine a legally acceptable reason for not having a cover over the shaft.

If it was in Australia, the owner of that tractor would probably be facing court. If it was a death, probably jail.

I need to remember a farm is a workplace not just some land people play around on. Was so long ago that I last drove a tractor I can't remember if I used a cover or not, but I can picture it in my mind so I think I did. Cover or not I still had the attitude of not going near it while running
