Front PTO on a 7100 series tractor

Recommended Posts

thedaddycat
I have a Jake with a 12 hp Kohler that has the electric PTO clutch. How useful would it be to have a front PTO on a 7100 series tractor? The swap of the clutch from the 12 hp Kohler to the 14 hp should be easy, but don't the front implements usually drive off the center PTO? Until now, my newest tractor was the 3310, and I'm still looking for the linkage to make that PTO operable......

All but the earliest 7100 series used the center PTO to power the snowthrower. I believe the snowthrower was the only front power implement available for the 7100 series. If you want to adapt an older attachment like a Weed Cutter, an EZ Rake, or a Sweepster, the front clutch would be handy.

Thanks Dutch. I am probably going to see about getting that Sweepster I talked to you about within the next week or two at most. The only rub is that I traded the 23D engine I had for a 18 hp Kholer twin that may end up in the 7114 and that engine has no front PTO shaft. I guess it comes down to having 4 more hp or the front PTO.... OTOH, I did just win the revitalizer that I'll be coming down to pick up next Saturday. Did you run yours off a "newer" tractor, or did you have an older tractor for running it? I'm still looking for a Weed Cutter.....

I put front clutches on all three of my tractors. The 7010 has an electric clutch that powers the Weed Cutter. The 7012 has a mechanical clutch that powers the Sweepster. The Sovereign V-Twin has an electric clutch that powers the EZ Rake.

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        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
