||What exactly does an overriding clutch do, and should I use one with a brush hog on my 8N? Does it reduce PTO horse power?
||Yes, you should definately use one with a brush hog. With out it the momentum of the brush hog will keep pushing you when you are trying to stop the tractor. It will push you into a tree, creek, car, or anything which is in front of you. The over riding clutch only drives one way and free wheels the other thereby stopping the momentum. You should go look at one and you will see how it works.. James
||Like JWM said, do NOT run a bush hog without one, especially in tight quarters. It could get you hurt or killed. That said, just make sure you get the correct splines on both the female and male ends. It's not really common, but there are some that adapt for the higher rpm implements that have a different spline pattern.
