Re: PTO making noise when engaged in forward drive
It's 90 weight gear oil but most likely the output shaft seal has been gone for a consdierable amount of time and has leaked out and is just now making noise, they don't normally make noise right away after the oil runs out. put oil up to the plug fill hole and watch if it runs out the shaft seal if it does then it will have ti be repaiered.

if it has a clutch
most small units just run a dog that you engage with a swift motion at low idle speed of the motor
have the tillers free above the dirt so they can turn with out any load to inhibit the dog engagement
are you sitting in the seat or have you jumped the safety switch under the seat before you engage the PTO I believe our tractors use an electric solenoid to apply hydraulic
pressure to a wet clutch inside the trans axle I would think it would
be OK with your chipper I have a 450 tiller that was built for the
older 400 models 425 445 455 that I now use with my 2210 If I hit a
large root or stone when using it with my old 445 it would stall the
tractor at full power. Now with the 2210 it will actually slip the
clutch on the tiller s PTO shaft I think the correct approach would be to increase your RPM s gradually or start increasing the power just as you trip the PTO switch. You want enough RPM s to create enough hydraulic pressure to run the PTO circuit
so that you don t slip the wet clutch anymore than necessary and you
want the RPM s low enough so that you don t shock the mechanical
systems too severely at start up
Let me know how it works
USE SAY A BROOM STICK AND ON THE OUTSIDE ON THE DECK YOU CAN USE IT LIKE A STETHOSCOPE AND PUT IT TO YOUR EAR AND LISTEN TO DIFFERENT SPOTS ON THE DECK TO HELP YOU ZERO IN ON THE CULPRIT .. IF'N I WAS ANY HELP VOTE FOR ME ...THANKS.. JAY
It's likely that your clutch needs adjustment. To adjust, you just need to loosen the two screws on the plate and slide it a bit so the clutch better engages the rear dog clutch.
Have you ever taken the tiller portion off the transmission to grease the clutch? If not, before adjusting it you might want to do that. It could be that the clutch isn't sliding back far enough to engage the rear end and a little grease is all it needs. This service requirement is explained in the owners manual for the tiller.
One last point, the tiller must be in neutral when engaging the pto clutch. From your note, it sounded like you were engaging the clutch with the forward/reverse lever in the forward position. The lever must be in neutral when engaging the pto clutch.
The problem is lack of lubrication in the pto coupling. Losen the two swing bolts carefuly,block the front under the motor. Separate the tine transmision from the housing and grease both sides with as much grease as you can work in. Work the lever as you do this. Should fix the problem.
