What does it do?This handy little clutch slips on over your tractor's existing PTO shaft (6 spline shaft that sticks out the back of your tractor) and will keep the rotational momentum of your mower from "pushing" your tractor after the clutch pedal is pushed in. It takes about 20 seconds to install and is a "must have" if you are using a mower on a tractor without a live pto(all Yanmars).
The over running clutch acts like a ratchet. You know how you can turn hard on a ratchet one way to tighten a bolt & then it spins easily the other way? Same thing with the overrunning clutch. It allows the tractor to apply power to spin the mower but the mower can't apply its momentum back to spin the transmission. When installed you can depress the clutch & the tractor will stop instantly but the mower will gradully spin to a safe stop. You can also depress the clutch to shift gears, for example, and the mower will continue to free spin. This makes it easier to resume mowing since you don't have to spin up the mower from a complete stop again.
