    Default john deere 790 pto problems

    ?to is grinding when you try to engage it. Seems to keep running
    Even when the clutch is engaged.I am new to tractors but i can't understand
    Why I am not grinding gears. Clutch seems fine. Any body have
    An idea?

    Make sure clutch pedal is fully to the floor board and give enough time for your gears to slow before trying to engage PTO.

    20-30 seconds I'm guessing.

    Unless your not depressing the clutch pedal all the way, suppose the clutch could be stuck together.

    Did it sit unused for a long time ?
