PTO-Powered Grinder
"It lets you do heavy-duty grinding that would be difficult to do otherwise," says William Husack, about the pto-powered grinder he uses to sharpen plow shares, chisels, cultivator shovels, axes, and other tools on his Calder, Sask., farm.
The grinder consists of a specially machined coupler that mounts directly on the pto shaft, fastened in place with two set screws. The power of the tractor allows the use of a large 10 or 12-in. dia., 2-in. wide emery stone.
"It lets you do much more than the average grinder. The cost of a conventional grinder that could do a comparable job would be hard to justify for most farmers," Husack says, adding that he offers complete do-it-yourself plans to build your own grinder. The plans sell for $10.
Husack says he has to be careful working around the pto shaft. He has designed an emergency safety clip clutch for the grinder but has yet to build it.
