I have a 8123 came with snow blower--deck--wood chipper BUT has NO pto shafts at all to run this thing??

I need the main one from trans to front axle --about 35 inchs
And 1/2 one to mowing deck--Trans to deck with male squar end and 15 spline
And one from front 15 spline to snow blower which is 13 spline and 7/8
And 1/2 one to wood chipper 15 female to female 3/4 x 7/8 shaft

I looked on e-bay and there nuts with prices for these, Any ideas?? I would like to be able to buy just the splined u-joints and shaft and make them myself also.

Heck it suppose to run ok but have to clean gas tank and carb out see if it runs?? Think I got a mess?? Photos next few Days of this thing,,

On the short frame tractors, the mower deck male driveshaft should be sufficient to run front implements as well. Obviously you will need the female shaft also to power front implements.

Again, the long male driveshaft is for a long frame tractor. You have a short frame. Yes, it will work but is not needed and will be expensive, although not as much as the price you listed.

If you simply locate the requisite female shaft, a male mower deck driveshaft will work fine for front attachments on a short frame.

You'll also need the short male driveshaft for the front axle to I blower connection.

I correct my statement about needing a short male driveshaft for the connection between the blower and front of axle. This is for newer style blowers. For your MA-style, you will need a double u-joint.
