The RL/RLS Series overrunning clutch is used to transmit the motion in a single rotation direction, when the tractor drives the implement. During the stopping phase, with the tractor PTO disengaged and the implement still moving, the transmission is disconnected. This device is helpful in operating machinery with high rotation inertia because during the stopping phase, the tractor PTO is dis-engaged from the driven machine.

PTO Shafts and Agricultural Gearboxes
Agricultural equipment includes a variety of PTO shafts. Each 1 is connected by yokes at each end and rotates between 540 and 1,000 rpm. A safety shield is commonly installed on both ends of a PTO shaft to protect the operator. These protective shields are also found in tractors and agricultural implements, ensuring maximum efficiency. Added safety is also provided by the use of internal yokes.
The agricultural gearbox is designed to change the output speed of a PTO drive shaft. It can be used as a decreasing or increasing ratio gearbox. With the decrease ratio gearbox, it reduces the PTO shaft’s speed from 1000 rpm to 540 rpm, allowing you to use equipment designed for 540 rpm. On the other hand, an increasing ratio gearbox increases the speed of the PTO shaft from 540 rpm to 1000 rpm.
