Probably not in this case (since other Deeres, including my 790, can run the PTO wihout an operator on the seat.
I'd guess in this case it'd $$$$ (cheaper switch, less wiring).Roy Jackson

Obviously the engineers who did it are not tractor users.
I'd keep bugging John Deere until they fixed this obvious design flaw.Tom Veatch

Re: PTO Generator and PTO shutoff
Locate the seat safety switch under the seat when the seat is flipped all the way forward. Pull up on it. Now you should be able to run without sitting in the seat. If you are really skilled, you can engage the PTO, get up, turn around, pull up the seat and pull the switch before the engine dies. No need to worry about anything other than be sure the transmission is in neutral with brakes on and locked. Come on folks, morons should not own a tractor. Keep in mind that machines want to kill you. Treat them with respect and no shortcuts. My PTO alternator is 220 single and 440 4 phase, so there's an extra bonus for getting electrocuted if you are not wary of what goes where. Its the Darwin factor.There is no "I" in team, but there is a "Me" if you want to jumble it up a bit...
