Add-On PTO For Skid Steers
"It lets you do the work of a chore tractor with a skid steer loader. Works great for operating grain augers, mowers, mix mills, cement mixers, generators, post hole augers, and snowblowers, etc." says Dave Heaton, Conterra Industries, Rockyford, Alberta, about the company's new add-on pto.
  The hydraulic-powered pto adapter is equipped with a universal quick-tach plate that hooks up to most major brands of skid steers. The pto operates at 540 rpm's. The attachment is also fitted with 3-pt. hitch lift arms.
  Three models are available to fit all types of skid steers. They range from 17 to 40 hp.
  "It lets you operate almost any 3-pt. attachment that's designed to be pto-operated and makes your skid loader much more versatile," says Heaton. "If you already have a 3-pt., pto-driven attachment for your tractor, in most cases you can also use it on your skid loader. Bobcat offers more than 100 skid steer attachments, but no one has ever offered an attachment to power pto-driven components.
  "Because there are so many more attachments available for skid loaders than for front-end loaders on tractors, we think skid loaders will become even more popular on farms and ranches than they already are. We're working on models that will deliver up to 60 hp for the new high horsepower, high flow skid loaders that are coming on the market. Some of these skid loaders have more than 100 hp. Dairy farmers can use this kind of power to pto-drive their backup generators. Irrigators can use them to power water pumps. We're also working on a universal attachment plate that will allow all tractors on the market to operate attachments designed for skid loaders."
  The 17 hp model weighs 230 lbs. and sells for $3,200 (Canadian) plus S&H.
