Huh. I'd never even heard of one before. Looks like it only works with tillers and rear cutters. Might have been a nice add-on to go with the snowblower but.. no option for that.

I think they are limited on what attachments they will work on. What are you trying to use it on??? I believe you have to have two separate pieces of driveshaft, one on the iMatch and one on the attachment. I have thought about getting one, but the expense has kept me from doing it. Maybe it is time to check in with your dealer????

No. It will not engage. Everything is properly aligned, it slides on but will not engage.
Engage meaning pto won't turn or will not latch

if pto not turning, try moving lever from front to rear see if that helps.

If you can get pto lever to rear position try turning the rear pto shaft by hand and then try to get the pto to engage.

Hope this helps

So here is the history: Bought tractor w/ Autohitch new in 2014, Worked fine until I tried to disengage (drop) the Autohitch on my RC2060 mower. Dealer picked it up, said a screw broke.
Last year it would not engage (female connector on tractor would not attach to male connector on mower). Back to the dealer, worked fine all summer, Attached/detached mower several times.
This year it again will not connect.
The iMatch Autohitch is 'auto' in name only. Nothing automatic about it.

Recently learned that John Deere has discontinued the iMatch Autohitch as they don't work as advertised.
Hiya,

Back when they came out I asked the manager at my dealer about them, he said "Run away from it, it's junk" Guess he was right.

It was a novel idea, should have been easy to craft it correctly but I'm sure the bean counters got into the design/construction a bit too much and made it less then perfect in order to make more profit per unit.
