Tall grass winds tightly around the pto shaft on my mower, it packs in tight where the pto shaft sticks out. The grass gets very hot and I can smell it in the cab. I had to stop every 5 minutes yesterday, so I quit mowing until I can fix it.
Would a pto safety shield work on a 2000 rpm shaft as the bearings for those are plastic, also the pto shaft isn't set up to accept one. Maybe they make one that fits old tractor shafts.
Or a shield that could be fastened under the shaft to keep the out.

The grass was a 1 - 2 feet high and I was creeping through it, the GPS said 0 mph. I had trouble with it last year also.
The grass got away from me this year as we had a lot of rain and then I was recovering from a hospital visit, then it rained some more.
If I place a shield under the pto or a pto safety shield on the pto I should be ok, but Bobcat and Polaris didn't machine a groove into the universal joints that would accept the standard pto shaft shield.
