    60D Driveshaft U-joints replacment (2004-2016)?

    2013 1023e (with 230 hours)- Had engaged my 60D deck (with mulch conversion) drive hundreds of times at full RPM, usually around 2500-2800 RPM, this time apparently was plugged with grass and sheared the quick-disconnect end u-joint. I have a AutoConnect PTO Driveshaft -- LVB26045 and it sells for $518.00, and the dealer stated the replacement parts are not sold separately. He also stated their records showed no one else had purchased a replacement shaft from their department, and it was "rare" it went out.
    Cross referencing the best I could figured the two piece (quick disconnect end) part was interchangeable and it was on the BLV10610 shaft purchased for about $200.00, and was quickly back to cutting a few days later.
    Had previously read about engaging the clutch at high RPMs and owners stated they did not have any troubles, but have changed to engaging clutch at lower RPMs and increasing to operating speeds, as well as ensuring the deck is raised up and it is not plugged with grass when shut off.

    My question is:
    Can I buy replacement u-joints for the 60D Driveshaft, or send it in to get repaired?

    Yes. AM131981. It is not shown on the 1 series and 54D/60D decks. After I bought mine, I did some "where used" on some of the driveshaft parts and they are the same on the 2210, and 4X10 series tractors. That is where I came up with the part number. Made a copy of the parts page and keep it with my TM and other notes.

    In my experience with dump trucks and forestry equipment and fire trucks, always always always... ALWAYS engage pto and auxiliary power equipment at low rpms... everything will last longer

    Good lord never engage a pto at a high rpm... pto should always be engaged and disengaged at idle.

    Agreed on PTO engage at idle. It is especially easy to do with the
    low end torque of a diesel. Not as easy with a gasser!

    Yep that's where the problem comes from. Gas requires high RPM, and when someone
    get's a diesel they think it's done the same way. BTW, not only when turning on but also turning
    off PTO - when it's diesel, low rpms.

    Idle engine before engaging or disengaging pto or any auxiliary power unit, gas or diesel. If motor bogs out then you got other isdues

    I read my manuals. Go to "Using rear and mid PTO".
