“No Hassle” Hinged Pto Guard
John Humeniuk made the pto guard on his tractor a lot less annoying by adding a hinge to one end. Now when he wants to connect a shaft, he lifts the rear of the guard and slides on the shaft.
    “I developed the guard when I was given an old Super M Farmall to restore,” he explains. “I restored the fenders and redid the front end and wanted to put a guard on it, too.”
    When the replacement guard arrived, Humeniuk noted the three L-brackets and bolts designed to attach the guard to the tractor. He cut away the L-bracket top center on the guard. He replaced it with a strap hinge, boring a hole to match the original in the L-bracket.
    In order to maintain side-to-side stability, Humeniuk welded the bolts in place on the side L-brackets. He then bored out the matching holes in the cast rear end.
    To attach a shaft, Humeniuk raises the rear of the guard and hooks it with a bungee cord. Once the shaft is installed, he lowers the guard and the bolts slide into place.
    “I like having the guard in place, but I also use the Super M for lots of chores like running a Bushhog mower,” says Humeniuk.
