Default pto driven chicken plucker?

So i've got a nice little kubota b7001, and I am thinking about how to use the pto for my power-plant on the farm as much as possible. One thing that I just have to do is make a tub-style chicken plucker that runs off pto at idle-ish speed. Here is a video of the machine I am emulating for the basic tub design, , So I need some parts to hook the plate on the bottom up to a pto shaft. Any thoughts on a good source for : big gears, pto couplings that fit them, any thoughts at all? hey, this is my first post, i have been reading and using info from threads here for years! awesome forum.

Welcome to the forum!! Glad to see you posting.

The first thing that comes to mind is a PTO driven post hole digger. Flip it upside down and mount your plucker in place of an auger. One thing to consider with a PHD is whether the gear oiling will work when mounted upside down.

Another place to look might be an old hay rake gearbox. You can use axle grease in them instead of 80-90 or whatever.

These are excellent ideas for places to start, I even have a pile of busted post hole digger in the back "40" (maybe really back 1, if I walked it off.) I will post pics of what I come up with.

You better. I've never been too proud not to steal someone else good ideas.
