    Anyone ever build one with a hydraulic motor vs shaft driven?-- Joe

    I'd like to see pics of your build if you can.

    Very nice work. ya know I swear I saw something else on ebay with that type of issue, but can't remember what it was.

    Only some belarus tractors seem to have that abillity in the latter.
    I have a 1960 Massey Ferguson that has reverse on the PTO. M-H 204 hydrualic Reverse O Matic trans.
    Although I don't have a PHD to try it on I would say if I took the free wheel PTO adapter off , in theory it would reverse the PTO.
    Nice build BTW
