    Default MF 1529 pto issue

    I have been a lurker for a couple of years and just joined TBN today.Last week i bought a used MF 1529 with loader (59) hrs to replace my older kubota L2350. Now everytime i try to start the PTO with my bush hog the shear bolt on the PTO shaft busts. I am sure its operator error, any ideas? Also when i lifted the 3 point hitch all the way up to look under the bush hog it will not come down? i did not get an operators manual and wonder if anyone had some insight? Thanks.

    For the PTO shaft shearing pins ... are you activating the PTO at high RPM's? It's always better to start a 3pt implement slow and build up the RPM's.

    As for the lift sensitivity, check your hydraulic sensitivity knob and adjust it. It's a dial usually beneath the front of the seat.

    Not positive but I think if you have a dealer call MF service department they have a PTO soft engage kit avaialble. Also make sure engine rpm is on the lower side when engaging the pto as previously mentioned.

    1529 is direct start. Soft Start is on the larger 1500 Series like 1533 and up. The 3 Point is direct linkage so it should lower. I'll ask out service department. Could be something in the control valve not allowing it to release. I'l l report what I here from them tomorrow.
