    Default Engaging mower PTO

    Well after nearly 50 hours of engaging the deck at 1/2-3/4 throttle I now have little/no squeal when engaging the mower PTO. Seems to have worn in quite well.
    I highly recommend it.

    Oh and shutting the key off with the idle all the way down then opening up the throttle immediately after turning the key off has cured the backfire problem too

    Never tried the off and on key for the backfire before.

    You hit the nail right on the head Diesel. After I had my PTO replaced the dealer told me to engage at mid throttle, then goto full.

    After years of that loud bang. I tried the shutting down at idle and then going up. no more bangs!
