Working Principle of the Tractor 3 Point Hitch PTO Wood Chipper

The working principle of a tractor 3 point hitch PTO wood chipper involves several key steps:

  1. Connection and Power Transfer: The wood chipper is attached to the tractor using the three-point hitch system. Once the PTO shaft is connected, the tractor's PTO is engaged, transferring rotary power to the wood chipper.
  2. Wood Feeding: Operators feed wood debris into the chipper through the hopper.
  3. Chipping Process: Inside the chipper, the PTO's power activates the chipping mechanism, cutting the wood into small chips.
  4. Discharge Chute: After the wood has been chipped, the pieces are expelled from the machine through the discharge chute.
  5. Control and Adjustments: Operators can make adjustments to the chipper, such as changing the chip size or modifying the feed rate.

Installation Tips for the Tractor 3 Point Hitch PTO Wood Chipper

Installing a 3-point hitch PTO wood chipper to a tractor involves several steps, including:

  1. Inspect Equipment: Check both the tractor and the wood chipper for any damage or wear.
  2. Aligning the 3-Point Hitch: Use the tractor's controls to lower the 3-point hitch to its lowest position. Align the attachment points of the wood chipper with the hitch arms and top link of the tractor.
  3. Connecting the Hitch: Attach the lower arms of the 3-point hitch to the mounting points on the wood chipper. Connect the top link between the chipper and the tractor's top link attachment point.
  4. Connecting the PTO Shaft: Align the PTO shaft of the wood chipper with the PTO stub on the tractor. Slide the PTO shaft onto the tractor's PTO stub, making sure the locking pins engage securely.
  5. Inspect the Installation: Double-check all connections to ensure they are secure. Make sure there are no loose parts and that the chipper is properly aligned with the tractor.
  6. Test Run: Start the tractor and engage the PTO at a low RPM to ensure everything is working correctly.
