  1. seems like quite a painful deal, removing the univ. joint for PTO removal on 445 x 54" deck

    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...

    Implements & Attachments
    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...
  3. Woodchuck hole knocked out my X350 -- engaging PTO stalls it every time now

    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...

    Sub Compact Utility Tractors (SCUT)

  12. Flail Mower question and Hydraulic

    Implements & Attachments
    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...
  13. PTO Chicken Plucker

    Implements & Attachments
    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...

    Sub Compact Utility Tractors (SCUT)
    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.

    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...
  17. JD 2130 No hydraulics unless PTO on

    Hello, I have a 1987 316 with 1354 hours on it. It starts right up, and runs great, until I engage the PTO to run either the snow blower or the mower deck. As soon as I engage the PTO, it instantly begins running rough. If I disengage the PTO, it runs great again, only to go bad as soon as I...
  20. JD 2720 rear PTO shaft to tight

    Medium Frame Compact Utility Tractors (MCUT)
    Hello everyone, We recently moved to a new place and with it we also bought a 2010 JD 2720 that already lived there. The previous owner had used the 62D mid-mower as a “bushhog” and so it had to go to the dealer for repair. While waiting I picked up a new Howse 500 cutter and proceeded to hook...
