solid PTO shaft on 3 pt auger

I found an auger on a three point hitch that has a solid PTO shaft. I've never seen this on others, all had a sliding 2 piece shaft. Is this OK? It seems that the pto shaft has to change length as the auger is raised and lowered.
Any comments are welcome.

I'll take another look today but it looked like a solid shaft. Just like a car
I just took another look at the auger assembly and the PTO shaft is in 2 pieces. I tried sliding them by hand without success. I'll talk to the owner to try to learn more before I buy it.
Thank you for your replies.
