I managed to tear up my pto guard on my Coroni finiosh mower. I also managed to get a new guard from Harbor Freight. The problem is that it looks like the locking rings are one way only and they snapped them in for me. Now I cant get them out. I am about ready to order a new shaft just to get the guard. Any help out there?

If I'm thinking right about what you are trying to do. I would say pressure at the arrow would let this thing bend in on itself so you could get it out.
Those notches must be there for some reason. The rectangular cutouts look like they would let it flex also. Of course this is just a guess on my part.

Dunk,
When the shredder's drive shaft was square it would sometimes wrap up, but I never enough to cause any real problems. The deck might fill up with cuttings, but again, nothing wraps. Since we had to replace the drive shaft with a few years ago, the wrapping issue has never occurred. Anyhow, I am 32 and have mowed with a shredder (8n and a Corsicana) since I was about 12. I have had plenty of experience mowing, but I suppose the grass around here must be a good deal different from what you have and that causes the experience difference.

Godspeed, Dunk.

It would help if you would describe what kind of "snap rings" you are talking about. They are the kind that have two little opposing holes, you need snap ring pliers to open them. There are more than one type of retainer ring ("E" rings, etc.) that can be referred to as "snap rings".
You can be sure that the manufacture who put the rings in had a tool or procedure to take them out.

I also have no expectation of grabbing it while turning, and I have no kids around to worry about it either. But if the tractor is moving and mowing, the kids should be clear of the shredder anyhow, and if they are not I would remove them.


You must not have ever done much bush hogging, without a shield of some sort my bush hog PTO shaft can be as big as a wash tub in just a few acres, with grass wrapped around it.

It is a bugger to cut or chop it off.

A cheap piece of drain pipe, cut to length, works well for me for that though.

almost all pto shaft covers have shrouds that can be slid back over the shaft shield.. usually 1 of 2 methods.. small bellcrank head screws that need to be rotated.. or a collar with interlocking teeth that must be turned till inner and outter teeth are un meshed, so you can slide the shroud back.

This thing has a white split ring and the shaft has a groove in it. It looks like you should take the lock out, put it on the groove in the shaft, then slide the cover on to snap in the three teeth. They ordered this thing from China and it took almost 2 months. I thought what the heck, it was only about $25 with shipping. I'm pretty careful but I thought I would go ahead and replace it for $25. Now I can't get it on.

Do you see three white dots on the outside of the shield? If so, these need to be pushed down and will free the ring.

That sounds like a very good solution too. Or if you don't have access to them on the outside, how about inserting a screw driver into the slot in front of those lock tabs and pushing the handle towards the center causing the tab to release.
We've given you three different ways to break this thing, take your pick. :mrgreen:
