Noticed this "GUARD MISSING DO NOT OPERATE" label on mid PTO shaft. I have a 2020 2038R with a 72D AutoConnect Mid-Mount Mower. I couldn't find anything in the manual about a guard here. Am I missing something?
Nope, I asked my dealer this same question, it's a generic sticker that comes on the shaft, no guard exists for it's installation on the large 2Rs. It's really a non- issue anyway, as you would have to reach up to it while the mower deck is running, not something that is possible with the safety features enabled.
