I used my X728 today for the first time snowblowing. It worked fine, except for the annoying fact that the snowblower shuts off whenever the tractor goes into reverse. It then requires shutting the PTO switch off and turning it back on again. All is well until the tractor goes into reverse again, repeat process. I'm guessing this may well be a "safety" feature designed into the machine by the lawyers at JD, but I just don't get the logic. This is not only annoying, but induces excessive wear on the machine every time it goes through the jolt of a startup.
Does anyone know of a hack to defeat this feature?
