    54" Blower - does mid-PTO shaft disconnect on both ends?

    My 2720 was delivered this past summer with the 54" blower already attached. I removed the blower and quick-attach for the summer but left the front bearing support and mid-PTO shaft in place as it was not in the way of anything. The dealer is picking up the tractor this week to install the loader so I had to remove the blower, quick-attach, bearing support and mid-PTO shaft in preparation. [ Side note - if being sans tractor doesn't bring on another late March snow I don't know what will ].

    The mid-PTO shaft disconnected easily from the tractor but I didn't see any way to disconnect it from the bearing support?

    Is this a permanent attachment or is it supposed to come off? I didn't have time to tinker around as I needed to get the blower and chains removed before it got dark.

    Appreciate any tips for handling the bearing support / long PTO shaft.

    On a side note - I assume that even once the loader brackets and grill guard are installed, when I remove the loader for winter the bearing support for the blower will just slip back on without me needing to actually unbolt anything?

    The PTO shaft will slide outta the twin bearing holder on the bracket. When I install the whole setup, I install the bracket first, then slide the PTO shaft into it from the back side (under tractor) then connect the PTO shaft to the tractor at the rear.

    I would have assumed that was the same setup as my 2305. The back of long shaft couples to mid PTO drive but the front does NOT come lose from the forward part without disassembling it. If its is supposed to come apart then mine is stuck as I store the thing as one unit and do not remove drive shaft.

    I think there are two different style of PTO shafts and hook ups. The newer style is like the one in this picture for the 2210/2305. Fixed stubs on both sides.

    Newt do you have to remove a bolt or anything? I am pretty sure mine has a bolt in between the bearings that I would have to remove to get it to come out.

    Not on mine. That sided hole is on both sides. You or I install the bracket assembly first, then slide the shaft thur, and then hook up the PTO at the rear. No bolts on the shaft or bearing.

    Wondering if the changed them. On JDparts it shows two PTO kits a serial number -XXXXXXX and one XXXXXXX-

    The latter one like mine has a bolt through it like this.

    There was a recall on the 1026R's front pto shaft. The first shaft I had had a bolt inbetween the bearings, the one I have now does not have the bolt.
