    Good morning, so my JD 3030 arrived last week. I bought it cheap with hydraulic problems. The previous owner fitted a new front hydraulic pump, reconditioned Hi-Lo and a reconditioned transmission pump. Turns out he'd forgotten to put the wood ruff key on the front crankshaft coupling, along...

    Hey, so I am in the first year of ownership, and this is the first winter using the x595. I don’t have anything to do with it over the winter so I thought it’s a good idea to start it up once a week and let it run for 15-20 min to keep it from having a drained battery. There is a high pitch...

    I’m looking to get a PTO snowblower for my 1025R. I already have a HLA snow push on the front, and I figure with a blower on the back, I’ll be ready for anything old man winter can throw at me. I’ve gotten two quotes so far, one for a MK Martin Meteor SB48 ($3,120) and one for a Frontier SB1148...

    1989 420 single PTO Got done mowing today and flipped the PTO switch off and it kept running. Odd because I had been toggling it on/off during that very mow just fine! Shut the tractor off and of course couldn’t restart likely bc the PTO still thought it was on and the bat couldn’t handle the...
  5. Lawn & Garden Tractors
    Just starting out as a newbie owner of an OLD JD 445. I have a copy of a manual that covers NEWER 445 machines and see there is a handy little pop off clip to aid in easy removal of the PTO when removing the deck. My old 445 appears to only have a 3/8" bolt on the spline to loosen and then...

    Just received delivery today of my JD 1023E. I have a 20x30’ garden and a spring house which always has water. I’d like to buy a PTO-driven water pump to supply water to sprinklers so I’m not taxing my well. I’m new to the whole PTO thing. I found this pump, which sounds like it would work, but...
  7. Lawn & Garden Tractors
    While cutting near the edge of a $%@^% woodchuck hole next to the woods I hit something hard under some leaves with the blades. Didn't quite sound like a rock, but everything just shut down immediately. After pulling it out away from the hole and starting it back up, as soon as I engage the PTO...
  8. Medium Frame Compact Utility Tractors (MCUT)
    I took my 2038R to JD to have the rear selective control valve kit installed and they informed me that my PTOs (mid or rear) were not working. I have never has a need for the PTOs as I use my tractor for road work and spreading gravel. I'm sure the PTOs never worked as the indicator said the...

    I installed my 54” blower onto my 1025R tractor and I found I need to keep my Mechanical Mower lift lowered to get the pto shaft connected. I would like to use my ballast box for weight which is the same mechanism. Is there an easy way to keep the lift in a safe position as not to damage the...

    Hello all, I have an E130 lawn tractor 42" deck. I am having in issue where when I engage the PTO leaver (push it up) the mower engages however when I take my hand off of the lever it wants to fall back down right away.

    I have a 316 with an 18HP Onan and recently started to blow a 30 amp fuse that is hacked into a pink wire that comes from the harness and connects to the key switch. This would happen after after running for an hour or so. I would replace the fuse and it would run for another hour so then blow...
  13. Medium Frame Compact Utility Tractors (MCUT)
    Last year I took it into my dealer.... they fixed it. This year... same thing... PTO won't start, although it did start for about 2 seconds when I pulled up on the yellow knob (reverse bypass momentary position)... but only once. Yes... I've checked the lever for front/mid/rear and have moved...

    Hi all, I have a 1976 JD2630 with independent PTO. PTO will not disengage. Put gages on clutch controller test ports. rearward port pressure reads 140psi constant with PTO lever in both positions. Forward port pressure reads 0psi with PTO lever in both positions. Does this mean I need to...
  15. ZTR's and Commercial Turf Equipment
    I have a JD Z465. Have loved it until now. A week ago, I left mower outside after cutting grass. Left it out for about 4 days. Went to move mower and start cutting grass again. Mower started good, but when I went to engage blades it died. Started again, engage blades and mower starts...

    Hi, I want to add a mower deck to my JD970. Being in southern callifornia there isn't much of a "lawn" to speak off. Our 3 acres are a far cry from a golf course and all that grows on it are weeds and some kind of grass that turns bown in the summer. Thinking about bringing more life to to soil...

    I've really been wanting a chicken plucker but I don't want to pay $500 for something I'm gonna use a couple times a year. So I started looking into building one and it would save a little bit of money. Then it dawned on me....instead of spending cash on a motor use the motor I already have...

    Hi all, I have a GT262 that I bought about 6 months ago that has been mowing great until a couple weeks ago. I am having a problem with the bolt that holds the PTO on shearing off. The first time it happened I had mowed for about 20 minutes before the blades stopped spinning (which was my...

    My first post on this forum... New 1025R with 7.2hrs.. Had tractor all of two weeks. While mowing grass and deselecting the PTO to reverse the tractor and upon re-engagement of the PTO there was a sudden silence emanating from the 54D midmount mower. Dismounting the tractor discovered that the...
  20. Large Frame Compact Utility Tractors (LCUT)
    My 4410 has about 500 hours on it and has worked flawlessly for all the years I have owned it (new in 2004). I recently started doing some more PTO work and that is when a problem cropped up. I have been flail mowing and tilling on some property that we just purchased. Last week I was happily...
