funny story, so my friend finally got the nerve to take my bolens ht20 for a ride and he loved it but he loves wheelhorse and knows the d series is comparable to the bolens ht, but not as engineered =) and he wanted me to ask what engages the pto on the d series. 180 specifically

I'm a Wheel Horse nut myself, but unfortunately I don't know much at all about the D series tractors. By responding to this, it'll give it a :bump: and maybe someone will come along who knows.

The manual PTO is engaged by a lever on the left side of the hood stand.
An electric PTO would have a toggle switch on the dash - just below the steering column.

j, On the front of the engine is the clutch, below the engine,you will have a PTO shaft that runs to the back of the tractor for the rear PTO. The clutch has 2 pulleys, different Dia. for different pto speeds, on it and you can also, with the use of the mule drive, power any mid mount (mower deck)or front mount (snow blower) equipment. Just remove the grill to access the clutch.
