    If you can do this without "bottoming" the two halves, you're DONE. If not, you will probably need to watch the video or RTFM, etc.

    I personally would not recommend this. All it takes on some of these smaller machines is one slip and it'll snap the case on the PTO/transaxle.

    A lot of these newer machines have aluminum housings.

    Don, you lost me - what part of my suggestion would put ANY stress on ANY part of the tractor or implement? Steve

    Oh, maybe this is it - are you thinking that if the shaft is attached when the implement is NOT at its closest point, that MOVING the lift could maybe put the pto shaft in COMPRESSION and maybe stress the transaxle housing enough to damage it?

    If so, good catch - maybe a better way to avoid this would be to NOT attach the shaft at first, but MEASURE between tractor and implement shafts and find the position that gives the SHORTEST distance, THEN try to attach the pto shaft.

    Whaddaya think? Steve

    Yes sir, that's what I was referring to. As per the video I posted. It's a much safer angle of attack, especially with people that are new to tractors and implements.
