Have. NH 311 baler with the metal safety shield around the PTO shaft. Mine is damaged and does not allow free movement front to back. The safety shield closes to the tractor has 3 tabs that appear to hold the shield in place. Does anyone know how to remove this outer shield so that it can have the dents removed?
NH wants $200 plus for new plastic shields. I think Tractor Supply has them cheaper. My fix it mine says to take apart and try to fix.

Slide it off the shaft so you can reach in the back end. With some heat and a bar you can driv it in there to remove some of the dents. you should not need to get them all out to slide far enough for the shaft to telescope in for the tractor. With the end of the bar ground off at an angle it should work well for removing the dents that way. Just let it set on the square shaft already in there this way you don't have to take the shield off. Other wise those spring rings are a b to get back together. Usually if they come apart here they never get back on since they are so troublesome to get back in place. Probably half our shafts have one end or the other missing and been so for decades. Only tractor that might be an issue is the H or MD since you have to get on by the shaft. They just run augers for heavy work anymore. All the other tractors are front access models.

Usually here is a snap ring with 3 tabs that stick out of the shield holding it on. You have to push those tabs in to get the shield off.

If I remember right you press down on one side or other of the tab and slide it to either the right or left until it comes up out of the slot and slides out. May have to use a screwdriver to help it along. Seems like it took some pressure depending how much dirt was in the slot. The tab should have a long tail on it. Sometimes they come out easy and sometimes not. Been years since I had to do one but that is what I seem to remember.

Today's Featured Article - A Lifetime of David Brown Tractors - by Samuel Kennedy. I was born in 1950 and reared on my family’s 100 acre farm. It was a fairly typical Northern Ireland farm where the main enterprise was dairying but some pigs, poultry and sheep were also kept. Potatoes were grown for sale and oats were grown to be used for cattle and horse feeding. Up to about 1958 the dairy cows were fed hay with some turnips and after that grass silage was the main winter feed. That same year was the last in which flax was grown on the farm. Flax provided the fibre which w ... [Read Article]
