Herein, how does PTO shaft work?
The PTO transfers an engine's power to another piece of equipment or machine that does not have its own engine or motor. The power is transferred through a driveshaft. The tractor's PTO shaft transfers power from the tractor to the PTO-driven machine or implement.
Some tractors have the inner 'thin' tube of the PTO shaft attached to the tractor's PTO, others have the outer 'fat' end connected to the tractor.
