    Adding rear PTO and 3pt hitch

    I have a x758 that I'd like to add a rear PTO and 3pt hitch

    From what I can tell it looks like the hardware will run about $900

    Does anyone here have experience in doing this with a x758? How intensive is it to do it yourself? What would a person expect to pay in labor to have a shop to do the install?

    I did the 3pt hitch on my X739 and it took me most of a day. It wasn't very difficult but I did spend a lot of time reading and rereading the directions to make sure I didn't screw anything up. My dealer had quoted me about 5 hours for them to do it so what ever your shop charges by the hour that should give you a ball park labor charge. The hitch kit itself was around $600.

    I don't have the PTO but the kit retails for $980 and I have heard that its easier to install than the 3 pt. hitch so maybe 2-3 hours?

    I did both on my x595.The 3pt isn't bad it is a little more involved on the newer models than the older.The pto is easy and the instruction are easy to follow.

    Thank you all. I read through the manual this posted on green dealer.com for the PTO instructions. He did not seem too overly complicated. I think I'll go to the DIY route.

    One thing I did notice that concerned me was they did not have the X758 model on the compatibility list for the PTO kit. Part # BM 23588

    I may end up just adding the 3pt hitch and quick connect attachment at this time (for a box blade) and then add the PTO down the road if I want to run different attachments.

    Do I need to add anything (such as the power beyond kit) in order to use the hydraulics to raise/lower/etc the 3pt hitch? Or does everything you need come with the 3pt hitch kit?

    Everything you need comes in the kit including the hydraulic lines needed for changing the position of the hydraulic cylinder.

    Also, BM23588 is the correct PTO kit for the current X7's if you decide to add that later.

    Here's my 3pt, I-match quick hitch and box blade on the X739. Note: the hydraulic top link was custom made and isn't part of the 3pt kit, you will get a standard screw type top link.

    There is a lockout valve kit for the spool valve that is best installed with the 3PH. Many tractors come with it already, but not all. It's mainly to separate the 4-port from the deck/3PH. Highly recommend.

    I also routed the second spool valves to the rear of the tractor and installed quick connect ports there for use with implements, etc. I use mine mainly for my hydraulic dump trailer, but they could be used to turn a scrapper or rake or for a hydraulic toplink. I made my own setup, but JD sells a kit. I didn't like where the JD kit mounted and I wanted 1/2" adapters so I could use attachments on both my X and my bigger Kioti.
