Trying to work things out in advance is difficult, normal path is to mount the implement and then cut the pto shaft to fit, you can find many videos of how to do this online.

Good luck with it.

Buy a longer shaft and cut it to fit your tractor and chipper combo. You need to MEASURE your actual setup to be safe, the alternative is very expensive tractor repairs.

With ANY Pto shaft, always remember to measure at the tightest point which may OR MAY NOT be when the implement is on the ground. it all depends on the location of the driven end of the implement in relationship to the PTO output stub.

It's very important that the shaft is never put in a bind (that is no sliding clearance between the halves because at that point (no sliding clearance). the PTO shaft is exerting a pushing pressure on the PTO stub and will not only destroy the internal bearings, it will destroy the shaft seal as well.

The bearings that carry the PTO stub aren't designed for a push or pull load, only a radial load.
