    Default PTO Sound When Engaged

    Hi,
    I just engaged my mid and rear PTO for the very first time just out of curiousity. No problems to engage or disengaged but when I first engage either one I hear a rapid clicking noise that sounds like the wheel of fortune whel spinning. Then it goes away-is this normal?

    Mine doesn't make any sound like that...but that doesn't mean it isn't normal on your Massey-Ferguson.
    Easiest way to find out is run down to your dealer and ask them to engage the PTO on another GC2410.

    I don't have that noise. I use mine with the KK rotary cutter. Do you have anything attached to the PTO? Maybe just freewheeling, w/o something attached it does that.

    Thanks-nothing yet. Just trying it to make sure it works.

    I had this happen on my kubota L2800 HST and called the dealer. He said it was normal. I am new to tractors though.

    I have a GC2310 and it sounds like what you describe when the main PTO lever is engaged without any of the other two levers (540 & 2000).

    I posted the question here a while back and concluded that it was normal. My tractor is now over 500 hours and still works like a charm if this can reassure you.

    I have no clicking noises from mine with either PTO engaged.........and no noises when operating both PTO's at the same time.

    Ditto Max2310: Mine will make that clicking noise as well, but only if the PTO clutch lever is engaged without one of the two speed levers engaged.

    Solution- I engage either the 540 or the 2000 first, followed by the clutch lever, and disengage in the reverse order. No odd noises then....
