When lifting, different answer. And yes, continue to use yer limiter chains.
Make certain you have yer MANDATORY ORC (over running coupler) on yer PTO. And yes, you may haffta saw 6-in off'n BOTH yer PTO drive shafts. Don't worry, they're made to be sawed. .........Dell, yer ORC safety preacher

Maybe not so much...when I put the ORC on my PTO of course that made it longer. My drive shaft slides onto a square shaft on the gearbox side of the mower. This addition with the ORC put the end of that drive shaft at about an inch and a half away from bottoming out on that squared shaft.

I was going to cut off about three inches from the end of the drive shaft but discovered that the squared part that slips over the mower shaft is not that long. If I remember right, it's only about 6 inches. I figured that taking anything off would leave to less of shaft on that squared mower shaft.
In other words there would be so much of that square mower shaft stuck up into the drive shaft with not enough of the square part to hold it steady and keep it from vibrating and causing problems on down the road.
The only alternative I could see is cutting the drive shaft in the middle and removing around three inches. This would require some good welding and balancing to do it right.

 Re: Limiter chains connected to the top link in reply to Caryc, 06-05-2013 18:06:01 advice still stands. Cut-off as much as you need so the 2-part PTO shaft will still fit on the MANDATORY OCR. It should be intuitively obvious sawing too much will cause the sliding PTO shafts to disconnect. I'm NOT THERE so you haffta to do yer own custom engineering. .......respectfully, Dell, yer ORC safety preacher
