German term or phrase: Schaltweg ist zu knapp
Talking about a tractor:
Zapfwellenumschaltung ist der Schaltweg zu knapp, und geht wenn die Zapfwelle auf spannung ist nicht zum umschalten.
I appreciate that this German is less than perfect but they are the words of a German farmer who is complaining about his tractor - what is he trying to say?

English translation:Gear shift path too short
Explanation:
It is less than perfect but I think he means:
The shift path for the power take-off is too short, and it is not possible to shift gear when there is tension on the power take-off shaft.
