Driving Lawn Mower Over a Septic Tank: Is It Safe?

While our lawn mower gearboxes are designed to handle tough conditions, driving over a septic tank is generally not recommended. The weight of a lawn mower, especially a riding one, could potentially damage the septic tank cover or even the tank itself. This could lead to costly repairs and potential environmental issues.

Choosing the Right PTO Shaft

When considering a power take-off (PTO) shaft for your machinery, it’s important to consider the type of work you’ll be doing, the power requirements of your equipment, and the specifications of your tractor or other prime mover. XINLAN Company offers a wide range of PTO shafts, including those suitable for replacement of comer, omni, bush hog with the same series of gearboxes.

When to Replace and How to Repair

If your PTO shaft is vibrating excessively, not transferring power efficiently, or visibly damaged, it’s time to consider a replacement. Repairing a PTO shaft involves inspecting and potentially replacing the yokes, cross and bearing kit, and the safety guards. Always refer to the manufacturer’s guidelines for maintenance and repair.
