The 540-rpm rear PTO drive increases the tractor's versatility by providing a means to drive a variety of stationary and 3-point-hitch-mounted power equipment, including rotary tillers, irrigation pumps, salt and sand spreaders, sprayers, and generators.
The male spline shaft is an integral part of the 540-rpm rear PTO drive. Equipment must have a female drive shaft end.
The rear PTO is engaged by the PTO switch on the dash. It utilizes the tractor's internal hydraulic PTO clutch to assure smooth, positive power transfer during engagement.
A generator or other stationary attachment can be powered without an operator in the seat by placing the PTO lever in the rear-PTO-only position, setting the tractor's parking brake, and then engaging the PTO.
The PTO control lever has three positions:
- Mid PTO only
- Rear PTO only
- In this position, a generator or other stationary attachment can be powered without an operator in the seat by setting the tractor's parking brake and then engaging the PTO.
- Mid and rear PTO
