ASAE  ANSI/ASAE S331.7   December  2020

Keywords: Drive shaft, Implement, Power take-off

1 Purpose

1.1 The purpose of this Standard is to establish multiple categories of power take-off (PTO) drive shafts, each with a regular duty subset and a heavy duty subset.

1.2 A PTO drive shaft is intended for use to transmit rotational mechanical power from a tractor PTO to an implement power input connection (PIC) or from a self-propelled machine PTO to a header/attachment PIC. A PTO drive shaft is also intended for use in any drive shaft application within an implement. A PTO drive shaft is considered part of an implement.

1.3 This Standard does not provide for dimensional interchangeability from one implement to another.
