 Kinds of PTO's

Can someone please explain the difference between a live continuous PTO, a live independent pto and a transmission pto system? I'm interested in a ford 1720 but I'm not sure what kind of pto it has. I know the manual says it has a duel clutch when it is depressed have way the machine stops but not the pto and when it is depressed all of the wat down both the tractor and pto stop. What kind of pto system is this?

It's a live independent PTO, or live continuous, they are the same thing. What you gain with this type PTO is that the pto driven implement won't push the tractor after you depress the clutch. In other words, it's got the type pto you should go with. Good luck.

Normally:

Live/Continuous is also refered to as a 2 stage clutch (like the Ford/NH 1720 has). Depress the clutch halfway, the tractor motion stops but the PTO keeps running. Depress the clutch all the way, both stop.

Independant Live is a completely seperate clutch and lever to control the PTO (like the Deere 4000's have). Tractor travel is controlled by the foot clutch (or hydro pedal) and PTO engagement is controlled by a seperate lever. Stopping one has no effect on the other (tractor vs. PTO)

Transmission driven means the PTO is driven off of the same final drive as the tractor transmission and thus controlled by the same clutch pedal. So, you depress the clutch to stop the tractor and the PTO stops as well.

I think you might find some minor variations to my description, but the overall theory is the same.

Chris
