JD 6105D PTO Question

I have a John Deere 6105D that I am going to pull a 12' rotary mower with. My question is that the PTO switch on this tractor is an On/Off Switch, not the old lever to push forward and back. I assume the tractors with this electric switch are designed to start a load, but this is a fair amount of load to get started. Any suggestions or experience with this? I assume other brands have the same style electric switch. Thanks for any help - Bob

Thanks guys. I have run the tractor with a 7' rotary mower and ma y times on the round baler, but they don't take the torque to get going like the batwing mower will. I assumed that JD and others took that into account, but wanted to hear from others. Thanks again for the replies. Bob

You will have to do it by trial and error. Try it first at an idle. If it kills it off try it at 100 rpms. more. You will learn how fast you need engine when you engage pto. My combine has a relay that won't let electric switch engage separator unless rpms are 1500 or more as it would kill off engine if running any slower.

Idle down, engage the PTO switch, and then speed the engine up.
Do you have the Operator's manual for it? If you don't here is a link to the JD Ag technical info site that has the manuals. https://techpubs.deere.com/ You can download a free copy of your tractor's Operator Manual. There is a serial number break so you will need your serial number to get the right one.

I have several with the switch. I always idle them down when starting.

I have one that has a knob you turn. I just start to turn it a little or just bump it to get things starting to move a little then turn it all the way. With the tractor at a idle.

I have 2 newer tractors with the PTO switch. They have no trouble starting anything hitched to them at idle. They are designed with a significant torque rise, ie. 30-35%. Flip the switch & go.

Thanks. I had to assume that, but wasn't sure if there was some type of specific procedure or not. Thanks for the info. Bob
