    Noob question on PTO implements wtih I-Match

    I plan on buying a 1025r and a rotary tiller. I also want to get an I-match for easy hook up. I've been looking at the Frontier rt1142 and the 647. I was surfing the Mutton power web store and noticed the 1142 states that it's I-match compatible and the 647 doesn't mention anything. I couldn't see why 647 wouldn't be. Then it dawned on me that the PTO shaft might have to be longer because of the I-match. Does the 1142 pto shaft telescope out further to accommodate the I-match and the 647 doesn't, or is that assumption totally wrong? Also, another noob question. Do these two tillers even include the pto shaft or are they extra? Thanks.

    So the tiller comes with the drive lines. To hook up to tractor. One I set-up I had to cut drive line to get it to fit on a tractor with no quick hitch. I believe the drive line might be long enough to use with a quick hitch.

    If you read the description for the 647 on the Mutton site the last line reads "The ability to use the iMatch connector allows for a quick and easy attachment and removal of the 647 Tiller."

    Most 3pt attachments come with a telescoping PTO shaft and they need to be cut to length for your specific machine. If you have an iMatch, you just need to cut them a few inches longer. I've found that if I cut them to fit the iMatch, they will still collapse enough to use them without teh iMatch if I ever want to do that.

    Ok, thanks. So the pto shafts come long and then are custom cut to fit. Makes sense. Is that something the dealer does when you buy or is that expected to be done at home?

    Likely depends how you purchase the item. If it's bought with a new tractor, I would expect it to be set up when I got the equipment. If the PTO item is purchased separately, then it's likely left up to the consumer to cut so make sure it fits their application.

    Also depends on the dealer.......some are much better than others. If you are dealing with Mutton's, as I saw that mentioned, they tend to do things right and well so I would expect them to either have it done or assist you.

    If you search on YouTube you'll see many videos on properly cutting a PTO shaft, it's quite simple but it does have to be done right.

    I'm planning on buying everything I want at the dealer when I purchase the tractor, so I can take advantage of the 0% financing for the whole bundle. A tiller, forks for the loader, I-match, quick hitch for trailer moving, suit case weights, etc. I've been trying to get prices and specs for everything I want and to get an idea of how much I'll be spending, hence the web store surfing.

    If I were doing that, when I was placing the order with the dealer I'd ask if they would cut them for me but, I'd ask if they'd walk me through it once or twice. As mentioned, there are a bunch of videos on how to do it and it seems complicated but, once you do it it turns out that it's pretty easy.

    I'm pretty sure my dealer would have been happy to let me watch and have their guys walk me through it. I ended up cutting my first one on my own and was pretty concerned I was going to mess it up. Then I just cut it and when I got done I remember thinking "So that was it?".

    Yeah, I just watched it. He does a pretty good job explaining. I've seen a bunch of their other vids, seems like a nice bunch of folks.
