I know the procedure for starting the PTO is:

1. Be STOPPED

2. Put transmission in gear

3. Engage PTO

4. Slowly release clutch

But what is the procedure for stopping the PTO?

To STOP the PTO and the attached equipment, you simply push IN on the Foot clutch and STAND on the Brakes.. Just that simple... It all depends on just how quickly you need to Stop..and NO, I do NOT recommend any "Over-running Clutch"...they take away that control, to be able to STOP the moving equipment in an Emergency.

I would add to the engaging procedure.I would start the PTO turning with the hand clutch disengaged and when up to speed , start forward motion with the hand clutch.

I usually take my heal and kick it out of gear a little bit before I aim to stop and the drag will shut it down pretty quick. If it is free running slow the engine down as far as possible, then kick it out of gear. STAY in the seat until it STOPS.

So... Can you shut the PTO off while the tractor is in gear and moving, then? Or is it you can shift it out of gear while the tractor has the PTO engaged and then later disengage the PTO? No clutch required to disengage?

What I have always done is stop the tractor with the with the hand clutch then push in the foot clutch then take the PTO out of gear. Ya you can pop it out on the move but that can cause a problem if it does not go out all the way and I have seen gears with chipped teeth or even a broken PTO housing because it does not go out of gear all the way then jams a gear tooth. Ya not likely to happen but can

Once you take the PTO out of gear, can you re-engage the foot and hand clutches, or do you need to wait for the PTO to stop spinning to avoid this issue?

Once you have the PTO out of gear you can go on about your business let up on the foot clutch an engage the hand clutch. Only time I might wait a bit is if I have a brush hog on and that is just so as not to cut up the air etc. Never have likes to have the blades spinning when going some place

Yes, you can disengage the PTO without stopping, but I prefer to depress the clutch while doing it, so there is no wear on the sliding gear. No need to disengage the transmission unless you also want to stop moving.

Today's Featured Article - On the Road with Dave Gohl: Deere Departed Friend - by Dave Gohl. Have you ever had to part with a dear friend? It's not easy. If it's due to death, your feelings could be in disarray for days, months or even years. Even now after almost 4 years, I still miss my dad. I remember when I was a kid my dad sometimes would tuck my brother and I in at night and we would ask him questions about his childhood on the farm. To this day, it's some of the best stories I've ever heard. And now, I'm so glad that I asked those questions, and if I were a little smarter i ... [Read Article]
