540 PTO on a FDT

Recommended Posts

what all is needed to run a 540 PTO on a older FDT ?. does it use a 5" pulley with a 91.1" belt off the BGB ?. looking at the manual it looks as if there is only a belt guide between the PTO up to the BGB.

Perry, I'm pretty sure you're right. I don't think there' is anything between the pulleys but belt. I sat mine on the machine, and it pinned up nice, but I haven't picked up a belt to run it, and will probably repaint before ever using it. Do you have an implemnt to run off yours? I'm collecting pieces of 3pt logsplitters. I can't justify the cost of one for the limited use I would have for it, a time or two each year, but it would be neat to run it off the tractor.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
