MF202 Got To Wondering About This

My 8N is my dedicated mowing tractor so the mower always stays on it. I do have an ORC on it along with a slip clutch so I've never had any problems.
But since I now have the MF202 I got to thinking about this. I can turn off the PTO on this machine and the hydraulics on the lift still work. So if I had the mower on the back of this machine without the ORC and I wanted to come to a stop to park it in it's place, what If I just step on the clutch and shift the PTO out of gear?
Is the still spinning mower shaft somehow going to be pushing the tractor forward like it would in the 8N? Seems to me the spinning mower shaft would have no affect.

I think you might have a tough time getting the PTO to disengage with torque on the gears like that. Probably not a good idea.

To see if you have a 2 stage clutch push the clutch pedal about half way down, you should be able to change gears, but not be able engage the pto (it will just grind). Push the clutch pedal all the way down, and you will be able to engage the pto. If its a 2 stage clutch you can stop the tractor pushing the clutch pedal about half way down (but the pto, and hydraulics will still work).

What transmission does the 202 have, and does it have a dry clutch? If it's a six speed dual clutch then it's just like the farm tractors, PTO drive is separate with it's own clutch. If it's the shuttle forward-reverse with a single clutch you will still want the ORC for mower use. If it's the four speed torque convertor forward-reverse drive, the PTO will reverse when backing up on that driveline. NOT really best for PTO use..

Should have added this. Is shifting the PTO out while it is spinning going to cause any problem or should it be avoided?

In theory it should not hurt a thing shifting it out of gear PTO that is but the same also holds true on the 8N but on the N you loose hyds. But note I say theory if say you did not get it all the way out of gear it could break the PTO coupler and damage the shaft where the coupler slides
