When you say put it in 1st or 2nd gear is that the main transmission for the tractor or does the pto have 4 different speeds available?  The only reason I ask is because as far as I know tractors that size usually have 1 speed for the rear that runs at 540 and one for like a mid mount mower that runs at 1000.  One runs out the back and the other hangs down under the tractor and points forward and when you put it in gear it turns the appropriate shaft.  Being that you said the tractor is a gray market one it might be different but I would think it should just be put it in and out of gear and set your ground speed with the main transmission.               Stewart

 

Your tractor has a 4spd PTO?

 

 

 

I till in low first gear for my ground speed, this tractor has a 4 speed PTO, 1st gear is 540, 2nd is around 700, 3rd is around 900 and 4th gear is around 1100 (If I remember right). A friend has a RPM tester and he checked the speed of each gear when I got this tractor probably close to 5 years ago. The PTO turns the right direction, this tractor also does not have a mid PTO.

 

I love this tractor because it's a grey market, it has things that the US models don't have like a 4 speed PTO, I also think it is a lot heavier built then the US models.

 

I added the only 2 pictures I have of the shifters I could find, the shifter on the right is for the transmission and the one of the left is PTO.     Those are old pictures I found of when I had a plugged vent and it was leaking oil out the shifter.

By the looks of that pto shaft it looks like the pto should be run at 900 rpm its not heavy enough for 540.

With a little driveshaft you need the implement to have sensitivity over the engine so it lessens torque on the shaft and tiller components.
Yup my little Yanmar had 3 speed pto 540 750 and 1000 rpm and it was only 15hp.

Oh wow that's a new one on me.  I've never seen an actual 4 speed pto before.  I'd try the other 2 speeds and see if it makes the tiller work better.  I do know of someone that bought a cat. 0 tiller for a Wheel Horse D series that turns a 1000 rpm and put it on a standard 20 horse compact tractor with the 540 pto and it didn't turn fast enough.  Now I want to go check the gray market Yanmar at work and see if that has a multi speed pto.                           Stewart

I haven't had much time to get anything done, the weather has turned cold and windy (again). When I left for work this morning it was 20 deg with 30-40mph winds and a wind chill of 3 deg. I was hoping we were past this cold weather, I about froze at work this morning becase I was working outside for about 2 1/2 hours BRRRRRR  :boo_hoo:

 

My brother and I (we work together at the same place) told our boss that we are quiting. We work at a dog kennel, it's probably the biggest in the state with (i'm guessing) around 300 dogs. We are the only 2 people who work there (besides the boss) so we told the boss that we will continue working until she finds someone else to take our place. We are quiting because (It sounds dumb) my brother and I just don't have time to work, there is so much going on here at the farm we can't get it all done and we are running out of time go get things finished before spring. Well.... 2 weeks has gone past and our boss can't find anyone to take our place, if we were to leave now the whole business will fold and I don't want to be responsible for that because our boss is our neighbor and good friend. So our boss is going to try and hire 2 young brothers (12 and 14) from her church to help clean once or twice a week to help lighten up our load but that's not going to start till after school. I'm not going to complain, the job isn't that bad and the money is nice. I just have a lot going on right now. 

 

Hoping to get some work done on the farm tomorrow, the weather is going to be a little warmer (around 48 deg) with very little wind.

Been super busy and I have been having trouble with the internet.

I got my 6 new tires for the big trailer the other day, I spent today getting them mounted and put on the trailer, I have 2 more to put on the trailer and then I'm done!. I have 3 gardens to till in town tomorrow (tues) I need to start charging people because this is starting to be to many to mess with.

 

The other day I got the post hole auger working on the Massy 35, I made 15 holes with it with no problems.

 

I also bought a grain bin last weekend at a auction, I still need to haul it home, it's about a hour away.

Bugger I didn't notice the photos being sideways last night, I built a new high end desk top computer for video editing and it has windows 10 on it. I have never had trouble with sideways pictures before these two.

I got the trailer finished, hooked up and cleaned off. I hauled the Kubota into town with the tiller, I got the gardens tilled and then spent a few hours working on the ditches of the field on the edge of town. The ditches along the field are really washed out, I can't even drive the Kubota through the ditch because there is a foot drop that is over 18" across. I used the loader to mellow out one corner and I pulled out a bunch of small trees that were coming up. I also tilled two passes along one ditch and then pushed/pulled the dirt to the center of the ditch. I am going to pack it in and then I will probably lightly till it over again.

 

I am needing to get these ditches leveled off ASAP because I can't mow them the way they are now.
