    Default MF 1240 PTO

    Hello everyone. I'm new to the board.

    I have a MF 1240 and when I first start it and engage the PTO the shaft spins for less than a minute and stops. It won't spin again until the tractor has set for a day.

    Anyone know what might be causing this?

    I haven't started trouble shooting yet and hoped somebody could get me looking in the right area.
