Did You Know?
The typical PTO shaft can:

(1) Wrap up over 6 feet of shoe lace per second. How long is your shoe lace?
(2) Wrap your arm or leg around the PTO shaft nine times in a second? How flexable are you?
(3) Produce second degree burns on your skin when caused by synthetic cloth movement at high speeds.
(4) A very strong man can generate about three-fourths of one horsepower. What is your tractor HP?

A Mott flail mower running at 2200 rpm can wrap up 35 feet of Gaucho (high tensile strength) barb wire faster than you can get your foot on the clutch, but it will take to hours and wearing out a pair of side cutters to remove it.

Those are some eye-opening factoids! Since the Cub has an atypical PTO, everything will wrap 3 times faster in the other direction.
