PTO led on the dash lights up when i try to start the tractor. I replaced the PTO switch, but no luck. Its like the starter loop thinks the PTO is ON, but the switch is definitely OFF.


Sounds like something like the key switch is searching for a ground.Use a piece of wire hooking one end to the negative of the battery and touch the metal case of the key switch with the other end , turn the key and see if the pto light still comes on , Feedback from a bad ground can drive you crazy.

Is it possible to convert my 735 Moco from 1000 PTO RPM to 540 PTO RPM?


you do mean a 100 rpm pto up to a 540 rpm pto correct ?

tractors that have the wrong rpm are difficult to speed up as your going to have to give up shaft power (Horsepower) to do this so if your implement is already drawing your hP down , adding a speed increaser is going to make things worse

some out of the "normal" box things ive seen folks using the belly mower take off instead of rear pto , belly mower take off's are sometimes a higher speed but again have less power than rear pto points

While mowing along my blades stopped turning. i shut the pto off and tried again. i noticed the battery light comes on when i turn the pto on. i let the machine cool off and tried again. the pto turns on...


Did it work right after you changed battery? It sounds like your regulator/rectifier isn't recharging your battery. When the battery isn't charging properly the pto wont work for long. If you have a multimeter, hook it up to battery while unit is running and check voltage on battery. When idle is high you should see more charge and vice versa. Please exercise caution when doing this. Hope this helps.

go to partstree.com and they should have wiring diagrams for your mower, should be a switch or something if the clutch works when you hook it to a battery (seat switch, pto switch, parking brake switch, even the neutral safety switches) also check your ground hook ups

X595 john deere pto wont kick in


These John Deere Garden Tractors have a RIO (Reverse Implement Option) on the PTO. If your PTO is engaged and you back up, the PTO will automatically stop. To reset it, depress your PTO engagement switch to the OFF position. Take your foot off the reverse pedal. Pull up on the PTO engagement switch. The PTO should restart. To use the RIO feature, pull up on the PTO switch for a second or two just before you step on the reverse hydrostatic pedal. The yellow RIO indicator light should come on your dashboard and you can now back up with the PTO still running. Works great for snow blowing when I don't want to keep resetting my electric PTO clutch to keep restarting my snow blower.

If your PTO will not restart, you may have a PTO switch starting to fail, or a likely logic problem in your electric PTO control module, or one of your forward/reverse indicator switches, which is linked to your PTO control module along with the overtemp circuit, is stuck/faulty.

Engine dies when engaging PTO switch on a John Deere GT235. I have replaced the seat switch and the PTO switch.


Check and adjust your RIO switch{reverse implement option}near the trans if so equipped.What happens when you press forward pedal then engage blades?Would also check the lower bearing on your pto clutch to see if its seized up.
