    Default 2 speed rear PTO

    I am in the market for a new tractor. I spend a lot of time splitting firewood with a wonderful old rear PTO driven log splitter a friend made. It runs great at 540 rpm but it sure would be nice to have a tractor with about 1000 rpm rear PTO. That way, I could turn the engine rpm way down & still split wood. Anyone know which of the new tractors have a 2 speed rear PTO?

    For new equipment, it looks like 50 PTO HP and above, Deere and MF only.

    All Jinma tractors have a 2 speed pto. I have a Jinma 284 with 540/1000. You can also get them with 540/720.

    I am fairly sure that ALL the Bransons have 1000/540 RPM and SOME may have 1,000/720/540.
    They are made by Kukje in South Korea.
    See the Branson/Century/Zetor forum for specifics.
    I have a little 42 HP Kukje (/Century re-brand), class 1 tractor - - works well, seems it will last a long time, etc.

    Kukje also paint some of their tractors green and put JD decals on them - FOR JD.
    I think they may have made some of the Montanas too.

    I really recommend 2 speed pto! I have a kubota b2320 with the 540 and the 960 and i basicaly use the 540 when i need power otherwise i am always on the 960 at around 1400 rpm that give me about 540. I blow snow when its powder snow i cut grass always on 960. With the blower i go to 540 when its heavy snow or when i blow the bank of the snow truck.

    Thanks for the advice. I am interested in a new tractor about 30 hp. In that size range, I have not found one with a 2 speed rear PTO.
