Thread: PTO Welder?

  1. #1

    Question PTO Welder?

    I was browsing a website the other day that sells generators that attach to the PTO of a tractor. That got me thinking,why couldn't a welder be built that does the same thing? I think it would be good for occassional uses around a farm or whatever,plus you wouldn't have another engine to buy and maintain. I would buy one. Just a thought.

    I was thinking of something you could mount on a three point and attach it to a 540 RPM PTO. The Zena might work,I'll study it further later today. The Premier would be great in my Jeep though.

    What many pipe line taking rigs do is mount 6 or more old bullet Lincoln welders to the back of a bulldozer, remove the electric motors off them and belt drive them off a PTO.

    These old bullets are die hard machines, really cheap and if you gear them right will run just fine off your tractor PTO.

    Lincoln made a welder head that you could belt to anything. You could run it off of a tractor or whatever. I knew a guy that had one mounted in the back of a Willys jeep and ran it off the pto box on the jeep. Pretty neat setup.

    Haha I worked off one of those tack rigs for a while back when I first broke out. They worked pretty good as long as the cat skinner didn't mess with his throttle once ou started welding. Didn't matter where you set your heat, if the guy's foot slipped off of the declerater you got pretty hot pretty fast. The one I worked on was set up on an old D-7 9U

    I'd like to see a pic of that.

    Sometimes the "official" SAs for PTO use turn up on Ebay. Basically the same thing.
