We ran a 24T baler with a 730 gas all through the 60's. We replaced one and sometimes two PTO crosses a year. We blamed it on the offset PTO but maybe it was a combination of the offset and two cylinders pounding away. Then the 730 was traded for a 4020 and we never worked on the PTO again with the 4020 on it. Jim

I agree that the offset pto shaft on 2 cyl's was a bad design for u-joint longevity.

An intelligent operator knows to swing the drawbar

If you swing a 730 drawbar to the left then you'll need to spend hours moving the RH wheels of tractor in so they don't run on the windrow while pulling the sqq baler. :wink:

Yes the off-set PTO was a bit of an issue, we always matched the draw bar to the PTO,, and the PUTT=PUTT does carry on through the PTO to the implement. We had a neighbor that ran the old 70 on the generator once and a while,, it would make the lights flicker,, the 4020 on the gen set would not flutter the lights....It is just simply a different kind of power,,not actually a bad thing,,but different...
