    Default pto grinds on 790 deere

    Hi all
    I'm having problems when engaging the pto it grinds when you try to
    Engage it. I would think that this was a clutch issue but it shifts ok
    And I noticed that when I engage the clutch that the pto contiues
    To turn??

    That is a clutch problem...your manual should describe how to adjust freeplay, IIRC.
    And when engaging the clutch (which is a 2 stage unit), make sure you are pushing that clutch completely down to the floorboards!
