Anyone ever try installing a external PTO brake on a 6000? I was thinking about a thin brake disc with a pad or shoe hand operated on the PTO shaft, with a lever almost like a engaging lever off a Oliver or Farmall. I like to rake with mine but have to put the 540/1000 lever in neutral to go down the road. Sure would be nice to have a brake. Al

Some ideas:

My Ford LGT 165 lawn tractor uses a band type brake on the trans-axle that is mechanically applied. Other lawn tractors use a small disc on the rear axle with a mechanical caliper.

Also, there are disc brakes (shaft mounted) with mechanical caliper sold for go karts that my be adaptable for your application.

Please post pictures of your finished project.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Just like the IPTO on the non-SOS 4000, 5000, 7000, 4600, 5600, 7600, 7700, etc.

Not all of the tractors you listed had a spring applied PTO brake, but yeah, I get your point.

I've never thought about an external one, but I've often wondered why they didn't put in an internal one. I don't think it would be that hard to be honest. Some sort of a spring applied pad that is released when oil pressure goes to the clutch.
