It depends on how the shaft broke. Hopefully the shaft didn"t twist in the pump because then it will have to be cut off in the hydraulic compartment and removed. If it broke off at the outer end and didn"t twist the shft before it broke, it should be an easy fix.

The shaft is an easy job. A few minutes with a couple wrenches. Whatever sort of dent or stove in steel caused the shaft to break will be the hard job. The better brands have a slip clutch between the pto and the gearbox to avoid this expense. Best to turn the whole hog on its side and turn the blade slowly and bring the sides to as close to the original square edges as possibleToo big or small a gap is how the wrong stuff does damage if you don't see it in time.

My B'Hog does not have a slip clutch. Maybe I've been lucky. How would I size and select a slip clutch for a TO30?
