Howdy all, new member here. I searched for my question to make sure it hasn’t been asked already, couldnt find it. I have a 530 Deere baler i would like to convert from 540 pto to 1000. Is this a simple swap, as in install different gear box and shaft from the tractor? Or keep it at 540 and keep changing the shaft on the tractor?
Howdy back at ya, Cowboy4u77.
Welcome to GTT.

To answer your question about swapping over to 1000 RPM, it all depends on the Gear Box Brand and Type.

The video below should help. It's of a 566 Baler, but should be fairly the same process.
If you're not replacing the tractor end of the PTO shaft, you'll need a 1000 to 540 spline adapter.
