Why do I need to idle my tractor way down when engaging the PTO with out grinding. What is the problem and what is the fix?

I suggest your equipment might last longer if you not dump the clutch at high RPMs on a loaded PTO. I like to get my PTO load turning, then raise the RPMs to operation speed. My 3600 does not grind at all. Do you feel vibration from the bearing?[/quote:b8b0918d46]

Faust It appears that you may want to re-read the OP. Retcol, you should alway idle down before trying to engage the PTO, and as Bern said check the pedal free-play and for slack in the linkage.

Could be as simple as a clutch pedal adjustment, could be as major as a clutch replacement to replace a warped PTO disc.

Start by looking in the owner's manual regarding clutch adjustment. Lacking that, try removing a little bit of the free play in the pedal and see if that helps.
