 Engaging rear PTO

When I go brush-hogging and see a big limb or a stone in front of the tractor, I'll disengage the rear PTO that's powering the brush hog, park the tractor, get off and remove the obsticle. Now, when I get back on the tractor the stupid PTO shaft is still spinning since it's only been a few seconds since I shut the thing off and the inertia keeps it going for quite some time. My question is, do I have to wait for the shaft to completely stop and then re-start the brush hog or is there a faster way to stop the shaft from rotating? Or, is there a way to keep the PTO going when I'm off the tractor? I have the B7800.

HF,
I let my bush hog down into grass or such to stop the blade before I get off the tractor.

BTY, I don't move as fast as you, it would take me longer than a "few seconds" to just off of and back on.

"Or, is there a way to keep the PTO going when I'm off the tractor? I have the B7800."

My L3130 has a seat override switch under the seat. You have to flip the seat forward to actuate it. It's purposefully designed to be a PIA so you can't easily get off the tractor with PTO implements running. I use it when I'm running my BH with PTO pump.

KT, I was thinking of shoving the brush hog into the grass, I was just wondering if that'd mess up my picture perfect cut Wink yeah right Actually, with the quarter inching valve, it's a pain in the butt to get the mower to the same hight each time, so I try to limit how much I move it up and down.

shortmagnum, I think something similar is present for the B7800, I just didn't see how I'd get my fat ass of the seat, move aside, flip the seat, all in time before the PTO shuts off. I should try it next time, though..

thank you both for the tips

HF,

Another solution is: dig up the stumps
Smile

Hey, had to bounce it at you.

I have a B2710, I have left the PTO running and get off of the tractor with a spreader to wash it out, but would not feel safe with a bush hog. Those blades do break and they can travel a long ways.

If you slow down the engine before you disengage the PTO and pull into uncut grass it should slow quickly.

Back to your few seconds...as a horse farmer...guess you rope cattle in rodeo... Laughing out loud

"If you slow down the engine before you disengage the PTO and pull into uncut grass it should slow quickly."

You gotta be right on that one. That's probably the fastest and safest way to solve my "problem". I slow down PTO anyway since on re-engagement I need to start it at low rpm.

"dig up the stumps" -- see, I got all them really old trees that are not entirely dead, so I feel bad cutting them down (not to mention what a pain in the butt that would be), but every now and then I'll have a branch drop on the ground that wasn't there the day before and I only see it when it's time to cut. Now, you gotta give me credit - I wised up a lot since I started maintaining my current property. Back when I first bought it, I'd notice a log and see if my mower was "up to the task". Needless to say, that mower ended up needing a lot of expensive repairs and is no longer with me..

HF,

I wish I was as talented. My bush hog cutting is anything but picture perfect.

If you don't want to change the lift, just drive into uncut grass.

I do congratulate you for moving those rocks and big limbs. Wait, are there limbs too big for a bush hog?

Seriously, being safe does not take much longer than not.
